Arsenal legend Paul Merson claims his former club can finish in the top four this season – IF they get lucky with injuries.
Merson told Sky Sports: “Arsenal might finish in the top four yet. Have faith.”
Merson feels the Gunners have a good chance if the players remain fit and get regular minutes.
Even before his latest assessment, he argued: “If Arsenal keep those players fit and they play every week, they would have a chance of getting in the top four and cause problems.
“They have no Europe this season, so will have time to recover and work on the team.
“But this is Arsenal, though, and has been since they last won the league in 2004 – since when they have never really looked like winning the league.
“This is a good XI, but if they get injuries, they are going to struggle as there is not much after that”
