ARSENAL are as long as 8/1 to clinch a top four spot in the Premier League after their 2-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger’s side have suffered a mini-implosion in 2017 as fans have turned on the French boss.
Despite the potential for FA Cup success, as they prepare to face Chelsea in May’s final, their league performance has been massively sub-par.

Following their 2-0 loss at White Hart Lane – which handed Spurs their first finish above the Gunners in the league since 1994-95 – the Emirates side now sit on 60 points from 33 games.
That tally is good for five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United – with a game in hand.
To reach the top four - Odds
TOTTENHAM – 1/1000
MAN CITY – 1/10
LIVERPOOL – 2/7
MAN UNITED – 4/1
ARSENAL – 8/1
EVERTON – 750/1
The Gunners are six points behind Manchester City and Liverpool – again with a game in hand.
However, at this stage, Arsenal’s Champions League fate is not in their own hands.
They will now need either Jurgen Klopp’s Reds or Pep Guardiola’s City to drop points if they are to stand any chance of breaking into Europe’s elite competition.
It would be somewhat bizarre to see Arsenal NOT in the Champions League, as the North Londoners have broken into the top four in the Prem for the past 20 seasons.
Things won’t be easy for Wenger’s side however, as they still need to face Manchester United and Everton at home – both themselves hoping to crack the top four.
On top of that, Arsenal will play Southampton and Stoke away, as well as Sunderland at home.
The next fixture for Gunners fans to keep an eye on is Liverpool’s trip to Watford on Monday night.
