Jamie Carragher doesn’t believe Arsenal are good enough to finish inside the top four this season despite the 4-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.
The Gunners moved up to 10th in the Premier League after victory at the Emirates in what has been a tough season for them. Unai Emery was sacked in November with Freddie Ljungberg taking temporary charge. Mikel Arteta took over a month later and the results have still been inconsistent.
But a thumping win over the Magpies could just be the catalyst the club needs to get back on track for the second half of the season.
Carragher, though, doesn’t think so. The Liverpool legend believes Arsenal were actually poor for 45 minutes of the Newcastle win and that the squad isn’t good enough to make it into the Champions League places.
“I think it was a great result for them, a brilliant second half performance, I thought the first half was really poor,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“I just don’t think Arsenal are actually good enough really.
“Yes, they’ve closed the points gap. There were some goals in the game, Pepe scored, Saka at full-back did really well as well.
“There has been a lot of positivity around Mikel Arteta coming in and how things have changed.
“He hasn’t actually changed the results that much, in fact they’ve actually got worse in some ways.
“It was a big thing for them to get the win, but Arsenal aren’t good enough to get into the Champions League.”
