Gunners star confident of top four finish

There looks to be a huge battle for the Premier League top four finish this season and anyone down to seventh-placed Liverpool could claim to have legitimate chances of making it, but Wojciech Szczesny is convinced Arsenal will secure their place come the end of the season.

After a slow start to the season – that included that 8-2 horror-show at Old Trafford – Arsene Wenger has got his side improving and they have climbed back close to the Premier League top four and remain in the Champions League. People who bet on Premier League weekend games will know they are not out of things yet.

There is still work to be done at the Emirates however as recent dropped points have shown there is still a defensive fragility around Arsenal, and they have many tough battles on the horizon.

Szczesny reckons the Gunners' fortunes will turn sooner rather than later, but they need to improve a faltering away form that has seen them lose six matches on the road.

Arsenal currently sits behind Manchester City and Manchester United – the two favourites in the football betting for the title – and also their arch-rivals Spurs and Chelsea.

With Liverpool also looking like challenging that means there are six teams going for four spots, but the Arsenal number one is confident his side won't be disappointed come the end of the season.

"I am confident we will get into the top four," Szczesny said. "We don't deserve to be outside the top four.

“We should be challenging for trophies every year and I believe the results will pick up and we will at least finish in the top four because we have the quality in the squad to succeed.”

Wenger re-signed Thierry Henry on a temporary basis to boost the Gunners while England international Jack Wilshere is due back from injury at the end of January, which will provide a massive lift for Arsenal in their Premier League top four battle.
