Former Liverpool star and football pundit Jammie Carragher has tipped Arsenal to finish in the top four.
Arsenal has poor start this season, losing three matches in a row, but they seem to have regained their composure, having emerged victory in the last three matches against Burnley, Tottenham and Norwich before playing a draw with Brighton before the international break.
Carragher stressed that the North London club are one to watch out for owing to their new found form.
He noted that if the Gunners can keep up with the consistency they could return to European football club next season.
“We can already see which are the top four strongest Premier League teams.
“The team that I think is worth watching closely as the season evolves is Arsenal.
“If they can get the consistency into their young side, the lack of European football can be a massive help for Arteta as he spends more time with his players on the training ground.
“I think it is too soon for them to qualify for the Champions League, but of the chasing pack they may prove themselves best equipped to challenge,” Carragher wrote in the UK Telegraph.
