EPL: Carragher predicts position Arsenal will finish this season

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, believes Arsenal will miss out on a top-four spot this season.

Arsenal, who finished in fifth position last season, saw their hundred percent start to the Premier League campaign end on Sunday when they were beaten 3-1 against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

“I have been impressed with them [Arsenal], I just don’t know if they have got the squad,” Carragher told the Overlap.

“When I watch Tottenham, and Manchester United, they are almost getting results the same sort of way, big, powerful, and tough to beat.

“When I watch Arsenal, it’s fast, energetic; I’m excited watching it, but could what happened [against Manchester United] happen too often?

“But the more impressive team, when we talk about how the game is played right now, the technical game and what Liverpool and Man City have done over the last four or five years, I think Arsenal are closer to that than say Tottenham or Man United are.”

He added: “I wanted Arsenal to get top four because I like what Mikel Arteta’s done, I think Mikel Arteta has done a good job. I love the young players they have got when you are talking about going forward and building on that, Mikel Arteta right now is not at the level of Conte, Tuchel, Klopp, and Guardiola.

“There’s no way at the start of next season whoever you bring in I am sure it will be a striker and a couple of players, I would think Arsenal won’t come close to the Champions League.”
