Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has given his verdict on the top four credentials of Arsenal ahead of the final third of this current Premier League campaign.
Wenger talked about his former club while he was on BeIN Sports earlier this weekend.
The Frenchman is presently a director with world’s football governing body, FIFA in addition to his job as a pundit on the aforementioned media outlet.
Wenger was the Gunners boss for over two decades before he exited the role in 2018 and was subsequently replaced by Unai Emery who didn’t last long in the job.
Unai Emery barely made it past the halfway stage of his second season at the club.
On Arsenal and the hopes of a top-four finish at the end of the season, Wenger said that the Gunners still have a good chance of finishing in the top four places.

Arsene Wenger also said that the gap between the top teams and the bottom teams has narrowed.
According to him, the top teams have dropped from their usual standards, while the bottom teams have improved.
At the start of the weekend, Arsenal were seven points adrift of Chelsea in fourth spot which will be enough for Champions League qualification next season.
Chelsea have since moved ten points ahead of the Gunners after they saw off Tottenham Hotspur in their London Derby clash on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues beat Spurs 2-1 to move four points clear of their opponents and ten points ahead of Arsenal who can get that deficit back to seven points with a win over Everton on Sunday evening.
Arsenal have a very good home record against the Toffees dating back to 1996. Everton are also in the running for a Champions League spot at the end of the season with 11 league games left to play after this weekend’s set of games.
