After embarrassing loss Saturday, Arsenal on precipice of disaster — Miller picks Southampton vs Arsenal

The Gunners come into Thursday’s clash with Southampton sitting in the bottom half of the table

For years, Arsenal fans railed against Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners never competed for a title, and the one year they did over the last decade, they got beat out by Leicester City.

But Wenger always had Arsenal in the Champions League, with top four finishes in the Premier League. Those days, though, could be long gone at the Emirates. The Gunners come into Thursday’s clash with Southampton sitting in the bottom half of the table, in danger of missing out on a European place altogether, with a brutal schedule ahead of them over the final eight games of the season.

As this Twitter poll I ran shows, over 80 percent of people think Arsenal will get eight or less points over its last eight matches. While that might not get the Gunners relegated, they might finish below 10th, one year after making a UEFA Europa League Final.

I really have no confidence in Arsenal right now, and I think the Gunners could struggle to finish inside the top half of the table. If they do not win today, it could get ugly in North London.
