Arsenal had a below par season so far compared to their standards as they fallen apart across all competitions during mid-season as they failed to continue their impressive start to the season.

The Gunners have been demolished from Champions League by Bayern Munich by a staggering 10-2 on aggregate and their Premier League campaign fell apart from December as they lost their way from the title race.

The club has fallen so behind that they are currently chasing to finish in the top four to feature in Champions League next season. However, their victory against Southampton on Wednesday has ensured that they can still believe in top four finish.

Arsenal currently trails Liverpool by four points (Reds played one more game) and Manchester City by three points going into the final games in Premier League.

To stay in contention for a top-4 spot, Arsenal will need to win each of their last three games against Stoke City, Sunderland and Everton. Even after winning all their remaining games, their qualification is not in their hands as they should rely on the outcomes of the games of Manchester City and Liverpool.

Manchester City is currently three points ahead of Arsenal and still, have three games left in their league campaign. The Citizens should slip in a dramatic fashion to hand a lifeline to Arsenal as they can afford to lose one of their three games and still qualify as they have a better goal difference than Arsenal.

Liverpool could be a more realistic chance as Reds will be one point above Arsenal if the Gunners manage to win all their remaining three games. The Reds will play West Ham away and Middlesbrough at home in their remaining two Premier League games.

If Liverpool fails to win any of their final two games, it will open the chance for Arsenal to go to Champions League by winning all their three games in Premier League.

Arsenal’s fixtures: Stoke (A), Sunderland (H), Everton (H), Chelsea (FA Cup Final)

Manchester City’s fixtures: Leicester City (H), West Brom (H), Watford (A)

Liverpool’s fixtures: West Ham (A), Middlesbrough (H)
