Former Arsenal manager George Graham says his old club can forget about a 14th league title this season - but he's tipping them to overtake Chelsea for a Top Four berth.
This week he tells Ham&High Sport: "The league has well and truly gone. Arsenal are out of the race.
"I look at the squad and the strength in depth isn't there for me."
Graham, who led the club to titles in 1989 and 1991 as manager, as well as playing in the legendary 1971 Double-winning side, said: "The squad is still well capable of a top four finish. They have to get a winning run together. An 11-match unbeaten run is a good basis for that, but seven of those have been drawn."

"It is amazing how quickly things can turn around. A few wins and they are back where they need to be.''
