Thierry Henry has revealed that he can’t see Arsenal finishing in the top four this season.

  • Henry played for Arsenal from 1999-2007
  • Arsenal have lost 7 Premier League matches this season
  • Arsenal have won 2/5 of their last Premier League games

Former Invincible and Sky Sports pundit Henry has chosen the four clubs he reckons will clinch those coveted Champions League spots come May. His old club, as well as Manchester United, were notably absent from the list.

“Arsenal usually finish in a strong way and the top four still have to play each other, but it’s difficult to see Arsenal making it,” Henry told Sky Sports.

“It is a massive gap now to finish in the top four.

“I will say in comparison to how they played against West Brom, it was a massive improvement against Man City.”

When asked who he believes will finish in the top four, Henry said: “Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City and Liverpool.”

Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard, agrees, saying, “I think Manchester City will get in there and Liverpool will be the other team.

“I think Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out – that’s my prediction.”

At the moment, Chelsea lifting the Premier League trophy at the end of the season is just a formality. They’ve already won it.

Spurs aren’t too far behind and have pretty much secured their Champions League spot for next season. They’ll also finish above Arsenal for the first time since Arsene Wenger took charge in 1996.

Liverpool and Manchester City currently hold the last two spaces and considering City are four points ahead of Arsenal, fourth place is theirs to lose.

Manchester United are level with the Gunners on points, while Everton sit just three behind, waiting to pounce.

It doesn’t look great, does it?
