EPL: Wright-Phillips omits Arsenal, names three clubs to fight for fourth spot

Posted by on September 14, 2022 0

Former Manchester City winger, Shaun Wright-Phillips, has said that Arsenal won’t be among the teams fighting for the Premier League top four this season.

According to him, the Gunners will finish above fourth spot, leaving the battle for Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham.

The Gunners have emerged as the early pace-setters in the English top-flight after winning five of their opening six games.

Mikel Arteta’s side narrowly missed out on the Champions League last season after finishing fifth.

Arsenal suffered their first setback of the season at Old Trafford earlier this month as they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United.

Despite the loss, Mikel Arteta’s side remain top of the league ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.

And Wright-Phillips cannot see the Gunners falling out of the top-four places.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, who won the title in 2020, are currently seventh in the table, six points behind Arsenal.

Wright-Phillips told Metro, “They[Arsenal] have built on that [their last season’s performance]with the signings they’ve made.”

He noted that the signing of the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City had given Mikel Arteta’s side depth.

“If they can keep that consistency up, that will be a spot in the top four gone.

“Then it comes down to Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fighting for that last spot,” he said.

Wright-Philips also thinks Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will retain the title this season with the help of their new striker, Erling Haaland.

According to him, Liverpool already have their place in the top three when they get up and running after a difficult start to the season.

Football activities, especially the Premier League, are currently under suspension following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed on last week.
