EPL: Mertesacker reveals position Arsenal will finish this season


Former Arsenal defender, Per Mertesacker, has predicted the position Arsenal will finish this season in the English Premier League, EPL.

Arsenal is currently in the 13th position on the Premier League table with six points after five matches.

Mikel Arteta’s men finished eighth on the Premier League table last season behind Tottenham, Liverpool, Man United, Leicester City and champions Manchester City.

But Mertesacker expects Arsenal to finish outside of the top four this season.

Asked if Arsenal will finish top-four this season, Mertesacker told The Beautiful Game Podcast, “Probably not [top four this season], that is what I have learnt. I am looking more long-term, Edu needs to look long-term sometimes, we need to build a foundation for the next three or four years. Me, in the academy, I live in a ten-year cycle.”

He added, “Mikel needs to address the here and now, the next games are the most important for us. I am going to get behind the team because they need us to create that positivity and energy around the whole training ground. “
