Arsenal legend, Emmanuel Petit has tipped his former side to finish above London rivals, Chelsea, in the Premier League this season.
Arsenal’s form has picked up with the Gunners winning five matches in a row last month to climb to fourth in the table.
Arsenal are eight points behind London rivals Chelsea with a game in hand.
The Blues have drawn four of their last five league games to slip ten points behind Manchester City.
“Can Arsenal make the top four? If you asked me this question two months ago, I would have said it would be a miracle,” Petit told bookmakers.com via Metro.
“But after what Arsenal have done in the last few months, they now have an opportunity.
“Now everyone is changing their minds. Confidence is back.
“With what is happening to Chelsea at the moment, you can imagine them dropping even more important points and it has you thinking that maybe third place could be a target for Arsenal as well.
‘Honestly, the opportunity they have now is a gift for these Arsenal players, so they have to take it!”
