Battle for the Premier League top four spots has been very hard this season because most of the big clubs want to play in the UEFA Champions League next season. Arsenal is among the teams that wants to move to the top four but it has slipped up its chances this month.
Arsenal was having the same points as Chelsea before Premier League game week 19 but the gunners made a 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion while Chelsea beat Watford 2-1 and are now 2 points ahead of the North Londoners. So Arsenal’s chances of getting back to the Premier League top four are becoming slim after every Premier League game.
Unai Emery had a post-match press conference after his team’s 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion and he was asked on Arsenal’s chances of finishing in the Premier League top four. Unai Emery has said that they need to qualities to get back to the UEFA Champions League, one be an established team and being stronger.
“I think for us, it’s best to think of the next match. Also to continue working in our process.” Unai Emery told Arsenal Media.
“It’s very important for us to go into the Champions League, but we need to do one process, to do one more established team and to be stronger.”
It is not clear whether Unai Emery believes that they will be able to get these two qualities this season or if he means that it could take more than one season but the Arsenal fans are tired of Thursday football.
