Ian Wright Predicts Arsenal's Final League Position
March. 12, 2020
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said that he will be surprised if the Gunners finish in the Premier League's top six this season.
Arsenal has struggled to find consistency in the league all season and although they're showing signs of improvement under the stewardship of new boss Mikel Arteta. They have won their last three games in the Premier League and they are the only team in the top flight not to have lost a game in 2020 so far.
The former Arsenal star told English publication that the club should forget about pushing for top four and that top six might be as well be a dream.
“You can’t lie about where Arsenal are in the league and you’d like to have thought they’d have more wins by now.
“Giving the fans something to cheer about is the best they can hope for, I think top six may be out of sight, I know top four is with the way it’s gone.
“The expectation now is to finish the season well, maybe have a good run in the cup.
“Give the manager the opportunity in the summer to try and bring the kind of players that he wants, to implement the style that he wants to play.”
Arsenal will return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to the south coast to take on Brighton and Hove Albion.
