Ex-Liverpool striker picks his side in Chelsea-Arsenal top-4 debate
- Emil Heskey favours the Gunners in the top-4 race this season.
- He hails the quality of Arsenal's squad and backs them to finish higher than the Blues.
- As for Chelsea, he claims top 6 would be a more realistic target.
"Arsenal have quietly gone about their business this season and should definitely be confident of a top-four finish," said the former Liverpool and Aston Villa targetman, "They’re picking up results and have some excellent young players coming through the ranks.
"I think Chelsea will be challenging for the top four this season, but realistically a top six finish would be a great job for such a young team, with no signings."
Arsenal are currently third in the table with 15 points in the Premier League table. Chelsea are 1 point behind the Gunners.
The two London teams will face each other at the end of December. The reverse fixture is scheduled on January 22 next year.
The Blues are more than capable finishing above Arsenal this season:
