Former England ace takes a pop at the Gunners.
Former Liverpool and England striker Michael Owen believes that Arsenal will sensationally miss out on reaching the top four next season despite adding Alexis Sanchez for £35 million this summer, the Daily Star.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already brought the Chilean to the club, whilst reports elsewhere claim that he has reached a £20 million agreement with Real Madrid for midfielder Sami Khedira in a bid to help improve on their fourth placed finish last season.
Although impressed by the addition of Sanchez at The Emirates, Owen remains convinced Arsenal will once again finish behind Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Owen also believes the north Londoners will finish behind Manchester United, too, after the Red Devils appointed Louis Van Gaal as their new manager.
“I have been really impressed with Arsenal’s signing of Sanchez,” he said.
“They have been missing a bit of quality but [they’ll miss out].
“The signing of Sanchez has made everyone sit up and take note. I really do rate him, he’s a top player and it’s a big step in the right direction.
“But, in no particular order, my top four for next season would be Chelsea, Man City, Man United and Liverpool.
“Arsenal haven’t had any real stand out players in the last few years, like Thierry Henry. They have just lagged a step behind.”
