Arsenal midfielder Torreira expecting an ‘intense battle’ to finish in top four

Lucas Torreira says he is expecting an intense battle with the teams around Arsenal to break into the top four of the Premier League.

The Gunners began the season in the kind of form that made Champions League qualification seem like a realistic aim, but recent results are suggesting that they will struggle to get ahead of their rivals.

The North London club are now behind Manchester United and Chelsea in the table following recent losses to West Ham United and Manchester City, although they did defeat Chelsea in between.

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira believes he and his teammates have a fight on their hands to secure that all-important fourth spot in the Premier League:

“We know there are other teams around us fighting for fourth and it is going to be an intense battle for the Champions League spots, but there is a long way to go,” Torreira told the official Arsenal website in the wake of their 3-1 defeat to Man City.

“We have got a great group, very united, and I just think we want to try to improve as much as possible.”

Arsenal, who are away to Huddersfield this Saturday, lie three points outside the top four in sixth in the table.
