Arsenal champions league spot

Battle for 4th place finish continues as Arsenal, Manchester United and west ham goes head-head for top fourth place finish with arsenal being the favourite for a possible Arsenal champions league spot.

Arsenal, like every other Premier League team, has a rough idea of how many points they’ll need to meet their goals.

For those fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table, it’s commonly said that achieving the magical 40-point level should be enough to keep any team in the English Premier League.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has set a goal of over 90 points for his team to regain the League Title this campaign.

He remarked following manchester City’s 4-0 victory against Norwich City on Saturday evening, “There’s no question about that – the gap against Liverpool is nothing.” “To be champions, we need to win a lot of games – with over 90 points – 95, 96.”

Guardiola’s forecast does not apply to a possible Arsenal champions league spot at this time because firstly they are not in the title fight, but they will have to aim for the 90-point mark if they want to be considered true title contenders in the near future.

Moreover, with Arsenal only capable of reaching 87 points this season if they win all of their remaining 16 Premier League games, the title is unlikely to return to north London for maybe the first time since 2004.

Arsenal will win the top-four competition with 87 points, above of West Ham United, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur.

This is because, despite their 2-2 draw versus Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, the Hammers, who presently claim the final Champions League qualification position, can only attain 80 points.

Arsenal will be well in the driving seat to secure the coveted fourth spot if they collect maximum points from those meetings, given they have three games in hand over their east London rivals.

Of course, because there are still matches between both the top-four rivals to be played, only one team – as implausible as it may seem – has a chance to finish the season with an undefeated record.

As a result, a point total of less than 87 should be enough to qualify for the Champions League.

The required points total for the last Champions League entry place has decreased in each year since Arsenal last finished in the top four – the notorious 2015/16 season when they were runners-up to Leicester.

76 points in 2016-17
Gunners missed out on a top-four place by a single point as Liverpool beat Middlesbrough on the final day of the season, ensuring that  gunners couldn’t secure a  Arsenal champions league spot for the first time since the 1996-1997 season.

2017-18: 75 points
Arsene Wenger’s final Premier League season as Arsenal manager was somewhat forgettable as his side finished on 63 points and way off contention for a top-four spot that was claimed by Liverpool once again. Gunners couldn’t secure a Arsenal champions league spot.

For each of the last two English League seasons, at least 67 points have been required for a fourth-place finish, yet Arsenal’s highest point total during that time is 61.

If history provides any indication, 61 points will not be sufficient this season, but 67 should suffice.

Arsenal will require extra 28 points to achieve that amount, which in an ideal scenario would translate to 9 wins and a draw in their remaining 16 games to secure a Arsenal champions league spot
