BBC Sports reveals that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks getting to top four at the end of this season won’t be a monkey business.
Wenger says his side’s struggles this season prove finishing in the Premier League’s top four is “not as easy as it looks”.
The Frenchman has led the Gunners to a top-four spot and Champions League qualification for the past 20 seasons.
But with 10 games left, they are currently in sixth place, seven points off the league’s leading quartet.
“Finishing in the top four is a good challenge but I think it is perfectly possible,” Wenger told BBC Sports.
“I have done it for 20 years and it looked always like nothing. Suddenly, it becomes important so I’m quite pleased people realise that it is not as easy as it looks.”
The Gunners boss contrasted his opinion to Man City’s Pep Guardiola who in recent times said “to finish in the top four in England is a trophy because it is so difficult”.
