Cape Town - Arsenal will definitely finish the season
in the top four of the Premier League standings, according to former Gunners
midfielder Robert Pires.
After losing their opening two league games
of the campaign, Unai Emery's charges have now won six on the trot, beating
West Ham, Cardiff, Newcastle, Everton, Watford, and Fulham.
The run of victories has seen the north
London outfit climb to fourth position in the standings, and Pires believes
that is where they will finish, if not higher.
He told the Express: "For the moment I
am very happy, of course, for the club because I am an ambassador for Arsenal
but especially for Unai Emery because he's a great manager.
"He did well with Sevilla, he has won
some titles, especially with Paris Saint-Germain last season.
"And, of course, you know you need to
improve every day, but Arsenal actually are on a very good run, especially in
the Premier League.
"Nine games, nine victories, so I
think they will finish in the top four, sure, 100 per cent."
