Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger sees the current team a top four contender.
Arsenal have made a solid start to the new season, winning three of their opening four matches so far.
And Wenger believes the north London giants could finish in the Premier League top four, telling the Guardian: “I think there is a good team spirit and they have a good chance to do well.
“I believe it will not be very difficult to improve on the number of points they got last season.
“But I’m convinced Arsenal can be in the top four, if not more. Why not more?
“They can be the surprise package for me this year: they bought well, they strengthened the defence well.
“And they kept the players who were already there. In my last year I bought Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, they kept him. They have every ingredient and no real weakness.”
