Emery: Arsenal’s top four hopes ‘in our hands.’

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says the club’s hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top four are in their own hands.

Arsenal travel to Molyneux to face Wolves on Wednesday night, knowing they will overtake rivals Chelsea and move into the top four should they avoid defeat.

Emery’s side will be looking to bounce back from Sunday’s surprise 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace, though with top-four rivals Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United all dropping points over the weekend, Arsenal’s hopes of securing Champions League football remain in their own hands.

“We have it in our hands,” Emery told his pre-match press conference.

”At the beginning of the season, after winter, we struggled in the table. We were [in a lower] position than we are in now. On Sunday [3-2 defeat by Crystal Palace], we know some details we lost and they used these details to score. But our way is not changing.

“We are on a way at the end of the season with a big possibility to take our first target. [We need to] continue being proud of our season and knowing the key moments are now.

“Tomorrow is also a big moment and a big match for us, a big challenge because we are playing against a team who feel strong with their supporters. But it’s a good moment to try to do all we can, with intelligence. We need to be clear, we need to play with heart but above all being clear in our minds.”
