Everton midfielder James McCarthy has said that Arsenal will be slightly worried about holding on to a top four place and are looking over their shoulders at the teams below them, reports the Guardian.

Arsenal are currently lying fourth in the Premier League, the final Champions League qualification spot, but a recent poor run including a 6-0 thrashing by leaders Chelsea on Saturday, has left them just six points above Tottenham in fifth.

The Toffees are two points further back in sixth, but have a game in hand on Arsenal, and also have to play them at Goodison Park on the first weekend of April. Both sides are in action on Tuesday, with Arsenal hosting Swansea City and Everton making the trip to Newcastle United.

And McCarthy believes that Arsenal will be feeling the pressure in the race for a top four finish, and also talked up his side’s chances. He said: "They will be looking over their shoulder now. Obviously they will be a bit worried but we take it a game at a time and we have a big game against Newcastle. We have never written ourselves off for a top-four finish. We will give it our best shot.

‘We will keep playing until it is mathematically impossible. We have eight points between us and Arsenal and we have a game in hand, plus Arsenal to come here. It's still open and we will give it our best shot. We are still confident we can achieve something big here this season."
