Arsenal: Wenger targets automatic Champions League slot

Arsenal: Wenger targets automatic Champions League slot

United Kingdom

After missing out on the Premier League title, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, says the future of the club depends on their match with Manchester City Sunday as a final Champions league slot looms.

“That is our target now, it is to secure a position in the Champions League next year. If possible, to get in the second place and at least secure the third place, and on Sunday we can achieve that. Overall we still have two games, and if we win those two games we will be alright,” the Frenchman said.

Arsenal are currently third with 67 points, three behind Tottenham who come in at second.

Arsenal have two matches remaining, the Emirates side play fourth placed Manchester City, who have 64 points, in Manchester on Sunday and relegated Aston Villa a week later.

A fourth place finish would mean having to play a qualifying round to reach the group stages.
