Arsenal’s failure to beat Brighton at home last Sunday means that their chances of finishing in the top four are all but over.
The Gunners will have not just win their final game against Burnley and hope that Spurs lose at home to Everton, but also need to make up an 8 goal deficit in terms of goal difference with the Lilywhites.
This is why Arsenal’s draw against the Seagulls, left many Arsenal fans frustrated. Former Gunners midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong was also among the people who made their frustration known after the game on Sunday.
The Ghanian, who came through the ranks at Arsenal and made 16 appearances for their first team before being sold to Barnsley in 2013, questioned if even a single player from Unai’s Emery’s squad would get into Man City’s, Liverpool’s or Tottenham’s starting eleven.
Frimpong, who retired from professional football in March due to a persistent knee injury (BBC), took to social media to post the following message:
Realistically how many of the arsenal players will get in City Liverpool or even Bloody Tottenham team ZERO ZERO ZERO MY FRIEND MAYBE LACA OR AUBA AS SUBS 😂😂😂😂 we messed up man I swear

Spurs Web Opinion
We believe that the only Arsenal player who could potentially get into Tottenham’s starting 11 is Lucas Torreira, since Spurs are short of numbers in defensive midfield but even Torreira has been poor since January.
With Tottenham set to strengthen their squad substantially in the summer (Daily Mail), Spurs could steer well clear of Arsenal as it is likely to take Unai Emery at least a couple of more transfer windows to build his own team.
