Arsenal’s Head of Football Raul Sanllehi has revealed that Unai Emery is expected to secure a top-four finish – and thus deliver a return to the Champions League – this season.

The Gunners have failed to qualify for Europe’s most prestigious competition for three years running, having finished fifth, sixth and fifth respectively.

They fell just short of qualifying for the competition last season, finishing a single point behind arch nemesis Tottenham while they also lost the Europa League final against London rivals Chelsea.

Speaking at a fans’ forum on Thursday night, Sanllehi underlined what the club expect of Emery in 2019/20, saying: “We said to Unai that we just missed out on qualifying for the Champions League last year, but this year with a stronger squad, we expect you to do that.” The Gunners currently sit third in the Premier League and remain unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions.

A £152million spending spree, which saw them shell out a club-record £72m for Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, has meant expectations have risen at Arsenal again.

Should Emery fail to deliver a top-four finish, his future at the club could well be in jeopardy.

Emery’s men will look to continue their impressive recent form with victory at Sheffield United on October 21 following the completion of the international break.
