Can Arsenal make the top four?

Arsene Wenger has done it before !!

Arsenal’s top-four chances are still alive after their win at Southampton so could the Gunners pull off another great escape to continue their 20-year sequence of qualifying for the Champions League?

They have overcome the odds before in the race for the top four, clawing their way up the table time and time again over the years.

Here, we pick out five examples of Arsenal escapology that have kept the top-four run going so far…

1.  2005/06 – Saved by the lasagne

A 1-0 defeat to Blackburn in late February meant that the Gunners started March 2006 in sixth spot and up against it in the race for a top-four finish.

2. 2008/09 – Winning run as Villa fade

The Gunners endured a particularly uninspired run of results in early 2009 with the fans booing the team after a run of four consecutive goalless draws – three of them coming at the Emirates Stadium against Sunderland, West Ham and Fulham.

3. 2011/12 – Battling back from seventh

Arsenal were in trouble again in 2012. The clues had been there early in the campaign when Manchester United thrashed them 8-2 at Old Trafford in August.

4. 2012/13 – Brilliant finish to pip Spurs

Arsenal were off the pace again in 2013 with back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea leaving any ambitions of the title long gone and their top-four hopes at risk too.

5. 2013/14 – Strong finish sees off Everton

Everton threatened to oust Arsenal from the top four in April 2014 when they overwhelmed the Gunners in a 3-0 win at Goodison Park thanks to goals from Steven Naismith, Romelu Lukaku and a Mikel Arteta own goal.
