Three defeats in a row has left North London giants, Arsenal football club with a huge mountain to climb as they close in on bitter rivals, Tottenham for the 4th and final Champions League qualification spot.

A run of  consecutive Arsenal wins against Wolves, Brentford, Aston Villa, Watford and Leicester City now feel like a distant memory following consecutive defeats to Crystal Palace, Brighton and Southampton. The gunners have now lost 4 games in their last 5 played, A disappointing run of form that puts a dent on their Champions League hopes.

Arsenal's next game does not get any easier, they go to the Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to square up against their London rivals Chelsea who look to cement third place.

Predicting this game based on recent form, Chelsea are clear favorites for this one. While Arsenal lost at Southampton in their last league game. The Blues demolished the Saints 6-0 just a week before. Since then, Arsenal have gone from looming behind third-placed Chelsea to slipping to sixth.

Defeat to Southampton was even a bitter pill to swallow after Tottenham lost at home to Brighton earlier before Arsenal kicked a ball at Southampton. Arsenal should have taken advantage of a golden opportunity to close the gap to their North London rivals.

The real winners of the weekend however was Manchester United, despite another poor and disappointing performance a Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick ensured victory to Norwich and resurrected their Champions league hopes.

What Arsenal need to do to secure Champions League football next season

As surprising as this may sound, the top 4 is still 100% in the hands of Arsenal.

If they win their remaining games, they get it. it's as simple as that.

But is it that simple for the gunners? considering that their next three games are against Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham.

Injuries have not been fair on the gunners too, a weak forward line without goals and no line-breaking passes from Thomas Partey to spring defence into attack, recent performances have been lifeless and disappointing since the international break. Chances are arriving but there is nobody to stick them away. With Aubameyang shipped out in January, the fact that the clubs only strikers Lacazette and Nketiah have only 4 goals between them all season tell the whole story.

Furthermore, the most worrying part of Arsenal's recent performance is lack of desire and urgency in the play, the mental character of the Arsenal team will be questioned in the coming games.
