Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has said the current side “have not been good enough” and fears there will be “more empty seats at the Emirates” as the season comes to a conclusion.
“The league doesn’t lie. If Burnley do finish above Arsenal in the table, they deserve to, yes. Simple,” he told talkSPORT.
“It could go down to the game at the Emirates, Burnley will go there with nothing to lose and will have a real go.
“I’m sure there’ll be more empty seats at the Emirates towards the end of the season, and maybe they can take advantage of that.”
Arsenal could still qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League, but Parlour said he feared that would not happen.
“Arsenal have not been good enough this season,” he said.
“They have been poor away from home and their form in the Premier League has not been good enough for Arsenal’s standards. That’s a real worry for Arsenal fans.
“The Atletico Madrid game is absolutely massive to get into the Champions League next year and, if they play like they have been playing away from home, they’ll get beat over the two legs.
“They’ve got to be more disciplined, they’ve got to be more defensive-minded at times.”
