Arsenal chief executive: We’re not happy with second place

Arsenal’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis has spoken out on the club’s current position.

Following Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Burnley, the Gunners closed the gap on Chelsea to within four points at the Premier League table as rumbles of a late title challenge once again come to the fore.

It was Arsene Wenger's side’s eighth straight Premier League win, and their 15th victory in 17 league encounters – the sort of run which wins can win you titles.

However, chief executive Ivan Gazidis has warned Wenger and his players that despite the major cause for optimism, he remains dissatisfied with current state of affairs and their position in the table.

‘We are not happy but we are going to keep pushing to the end and see how far we can go,' Gazidis was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

Can Arsenal be happy with their season?

Following Chelsea’s late victory over Queens Park Rangers, there is seemingly nothing that can prevent the Blues from lifting the title this season – restricting Arsenal to fight it out for second place.

While that may not have excited fans too much at the beginning of the campaign, their form since the turn of the year has been so impressive and there is every reason to be feeling optimistic in North London.

The introduction of Francis Coquelin has been a big step in the right direction, and in attack they probably have the best selection of forwards and creative players in the Premier League

Moreover, with an FA Cup semi-final to contend, it’s an extremely exciting time for the Gunners and there is every reason to believe that next season could bring yet further success at the Emirates.
