Danny Murphy revealed that he didn’t think had any chance of finishing in the top-four of the Premier League this season.

The Sky Sports pundit was directly asked if would finish in the top-four, and used only two-words to sum up their chances.

have no chance,” said Murphy on Sky Sports’ The Debate (Sky Sports Premier League, Tuesday, November 26th, 22:33).

currently sit eighth in the table after 13 games played as they have racked up just 18 points.

Can finish in the top-four?

It’s no surprise Murphy believes are destined to finish outside the top-four as they’re eight points behind Chelsea, who currently occupy fourth position.

However to say there is no chance? Surely it’s a little early to write off.

Especially as their luck maybe soon about to change as there is a suggestion that current manager could soon receive his marching orders.

The Daily Mail reported late on Tuesday that Emery’s position was being considered on a game-to-game basis and if he exits, then who knows what effect a potential new manager could have on the Gunners’ fortunes.

After all Arsenal’s bitter rivals, Tottenham, recently parted company with Mauricio Pochettino before hiring instead and that seems to have worked wonders.

Before Pochettino exited Spurs, his side had failed to win an away game since January but Mourinho won his first game in charge which was away to West Ham with ease.

So it shows that depending on what decide regarding their manager, it may see their chances of a top-four boosted.

Also while it does seem likely based on the club’s current run of form, they couldn’t even beat struggling Southampton at the weekend, that Emery needs to leave for them to finish in top-four, there’s still a very small chance Emery can turn it around if he stays put at the Emirates.
