Liverpool legend and current Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Carragher, has claimed that Arsenal are lacking pace and could be overtaken in fourth place by Everton.
The Blues were rampant against the Gunners on Sunday, beating them 3-0 at Goodison Park to move to within a single point of their top four rivals and still with a game in hand to play.
Everton have won their last six matches, their best run since 2002, and with their top four hopes firmly in their hands, Carragher can see the Blues grabbing a Champions League spot ahead of Arsenal.
“It’s the way they lost that’s worrying. You watch that Arsenal team now and when I think of an Arsene Wenger team I think of power and pace.
“Watching this team I look at it and think it’s weak and slow. That would be worrying. No matter who you play, if you haven’t got that pace and strength in your team mentally and physically, even if the fixtures are kind it’s going to be difficult for them.
“That’s probably one of the slowest Arsenal teams I’ve seen under Arsene Wenger and that’s a massive worry for them.
“With the energy Everton showed in that game I think you would probably have to say they were favourites – but I will change my mind next week!”
Arsenal have lost four of their last five away games, conceding 15 goals in the process.
