Emmanuel Petit says Arsenal will miss out on top as Manchester United swoop in
Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit says his former team will miss out on top four, partly because Manchester United are in great form and Paul Pogba is carrying them in right direction.
The Gunners legend has backed Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and finally United to make into the top four positions come the end of this season.
Talking to Goal, Petit said: “How can you say Arsenal have a chance in an away match against City when you see the way they have played away from home this season?
“They play so well to beat Tottenham and Chelsea at home and then lose to Southampton, West Ham and Liverpool in horrible away performances. This is not the results of a team that will finish in the top four.
“When I look at Manchester City and Liverpool, they play with the same style at home as they do away and that is not the case for Arsenal this season.”
The Frenchman added: “All the teams chasing the top four positions are feeling the breath of Manchester United on their shoulders and I would expect them to find a way to finish in the top four.”
Arsenal will attempt to prove him wrong when they take the field against Manchester City tomorrow evening at the Etihad. Any positive result there would really boost their confidence going into the final three months of this campaign.
