Arsenal

Top four still the target for Emery

25th April 2019, 07:14 by Gareth Freeman

Unai Emery is convinced Arsenal can still secure a top-four finish, despite Wednesday's 3-1 loss at Wolves.

The Gunners sit fifth in the Premier League table with 66 points, one behind Chelsea in fourth spot with three games to play.

Arsenal have now suffered back-to-back defeats after going down to Crystal Palace and Wolves but manager Emery feels they can still claim a top-four spot and a place in next season's Champions League.

"We lost from our hands the opportunity for fourth, but we can also recover this opportunity," he said.

"Top four is the target, a difficult target.

"We have lost in the last two matches, to Crystal Palace and here, but the last three matches we play in the Premier League we have opportunities.

"Generally we are disappointed but we need to look at all the season. We need to prepare as best as possible for Leicester. Again it is very difficult but hopefully we can take something."

Arsenal face Leicester (a), Brighton (h) and Burnley (a) in their remaining fixtures.

Emery's men could also qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League and they face Spain's Valencia in the semi finals next month.
