How can we possibly finish in the top four?
We were fifth last year and haven’t addressed most of the glaring holes in the first team.
We got Lacazette, which was about the bare minimum and sorted out the LB position.
We haven’t got a replacement for Cazorla and we have lost Chamberlain.
Our two best players, Sanchez and Ozil, who seem unmotivated and unhappy, refusing to sign new contracts.
We have one of our starting CB’s, Mustafi, who doesn’t seem to want to be here either.
We don’t seem to know how to defend properly and have been beaten by Stoke, and then thrashed by Liverpool in one of the most pathetic performances I have seen.
We have had several players leave or want to leave in the transfer window and rumours of players we have approached turning us down because of our lack of ambition.
But, most importantly, we have a manager that has seen this stagnation and decline, yet refuses to do anything about it, either in the transfer market or on the pitch.
How does all this equate to us getting a CL place?
