Can Arsenal and Chelsea really condemn Tottenham to the Europa League?

Can Arsenal and Chelsea really condemn Tottenham to the Europa League?

That was the moment when the Frenchman had to make it clear that a club like Arsenal should be winning trophies for fun, instead he injected a mentality that finishing in the Top Four is an achievement, it is something to be proud of.

Former Arsenal forward Julio Baptista has insisted that it is wrong to underestimate the Gunners ahead of their Europa League tie against AC Milan.

However, Arsenal's progress has been familiarly stunted this time around, with the January arrivals of club-record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan - the latter in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United - doing nothing to prevent dwindling form.

The Gunners stars were all smiles as they lined the runway, but there is no hiding the fact that Thursday night will provide a tense and nervy atmosphere for a club which has lost four games in a row for the first time since 2002.

With Arsenal languishing in sixth place in the Premier League, 13 points behind Tottenham in fourth place, Arsenal legend Ian Wright has admitted that he thinks the Gunners may even finish lower than sixth place which they are now occupying.

"So I do think he will leave at the end of the season but for me I would always feel more comfortable with it being on his own terms".

Kilbane also claims that the clamour for Thierry Henry to be given a chance in the Arsenal dugout are premature and identified the man they should turn to when the manager's position eventually becomes vacant.




Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny admits it will be "very hard" for the club to qualify for the Champions League after another damaging Premier League defeat at the hands of Brighton. Was he too busy or indifferent to what happens on the pitch?

Said the former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder: "Will Arsene decide himself that he's had enough?"

"We have a saying over at Arsenal, victory through harmony", Kroenke recently told the Woj Podcast.

Sure, they've gotten embarrassed twice trying to play open attacking football against Manchester City, but who hasn't?

Mikel Arteta is not an overwhelmingly popular candidate to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, if fan reaction on Twitter is anything to go by.

The goal triggered the first chants of "you're getting sacked in the morning" directed at Wenger from the home supporters but alarmingly for the manager, prompted little response from his side.
