Arsenal are currently 10th on the Premier League table with 31 points and are currently 10 points behind Chelsea who occupy the fourth spot.
The Gunners have managed to pick up only one win in their last six league matches and to add to their misery, they have drawn their last four games.
So naturally, with such poor stats, it would be safe to assume that Arsenal have fallen out of the top-four race but recently Jose Mourinho had hinted that the North London can still challenge for that final Champions League spot.
And now speaking about their top-four ambitions, Hector Bellerin has hinted that they can still make it to the top-tier of European football next season.
He said, as reported: “We can always make top four. That’s the least target that Arsenal can have.
“For now we need to get the ideas that the boss wants to implement, get it to a hundred per cent and then we can build from there.
“If we can play every game and control every game the way we want to, then top four is just something that is going to come.”
The 10 point gap might seem huge but the way the mid-table teams have been playing, it might take very little effort to claw down this gap and move closer to Chelsea.
But for that, the first thing that Arsenal need to do is to start killing off games as early as possible and pick up all three points – no matter who the opponent is.
And obviously, if the way of the league table does not work, then they could have one more crack at a spot in the Champions League by winning the Europa League this campaign.
