Arsenal 10/1 for top-four finish but Wenger still hopeful

Arsene wenger has admitted that it will be hard for Arsenal to finish in the Premier League top four after they suffered a 1-0 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Not quite at his clinical self in front of goal, Kane offered a lot more to the team performance than just a goal.

Spurs have lost just one of their last seven Premier League games against Arsenal (W2 D4), although that defeat came earlier this season, losing 2-0 at the Emirates.

Spurs came into the game having seen off Manchester United at home and earned a good point away at Liverpool and Pochettino said the dressing room was oozing with belief as they head into the business end of the season.

Arsenal will be travelling to Sweden to face Oestersunds FK this Thursday in the first knockout stage of the Europa League.

Arsene Wenger's side were simply not at the races, despite the fact they defended reasonably well in the first-half, creating very few chances and showing little ability to control the tempo.

With Arsenal sitting in sixth place and six points back of the top four, Bellerin bemoaned a lack of initiative as the Gunners controlled possession in the first half.

"The game should have been finished at half-time for me".

Not only because it was a north London derby and obviously this is the most important game for Arsenal fans. We missed opportunities on the counter attack that are not missable at our level with the final ball. We also broke the record that year for the most goals scored in a Premier League campaign, with the champions finding the back of the net 103 times.

"We had opportunities, risky situations that we didn't transform into opportunities, that's where my regret was, that in the final ball we missed something". Arsenal are a very good team, but this is the sort of game Spurs need to win if they are to establish themselves as Champions League regulars. "Football is not about switching off for three games and switch it on for one", he told reporters at his post-match presser.

The England worldwide has won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and is on track to better his tallies of previous campaigns.
