Pires Makes Bold Claim About Arsenal’s Top Four And Europa League Chances

Arsenal legend Robert Pires is backing the Gunners to finish in the top four and go all the way in the Europa League.

The Frenchman believes manager Unai Emery has the squad and the know-how to get his side over the line on both fronts:

“I think they can reach both targets. Of course, it will be very difficult, but the squad is very good, we have good quality.”

“All the players now they are very confident, especially Mesut Ozil – because he is one of the best players in the Premier League.”

“So that’s why Unai Emery, the squad, they are very confident for the two targets: the top four and why not lift the [Europa League] trophy?”

Arsenal’s chances of finishing in the top four are looking high, especially after their win against Manchester United in their last league fixture.

They are now two points ahead of their nearest rivals in the race for fourth, with a fixture list that includes no more ‘big six” clubs before the end of the season.

Winning the Europa League could prove to be more of a challenge. The Gunners face Napoli in the quarter-finals of the competition.

If they do progress past the Serie A club, though, they do have a great chance of going all the way and winning their first European trophy since the Cup Winners Cup triumph in 1994.
