Arsenal favourites for fourth place, says Everton’s Howard

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has claimed that Arsenal are favourites to finish in fourth place, with both clubs currently challenging for the final Champions League qualification spot, reports the Guardian.

Arsenal lie in fourth place as it stands, holding a four point lead over Everton, but they have played a game more than the Toffees and have to go to Goodison Park for a crucial fixture on Sunday, one which is seen by many as a game that can possibly decide who makes it into Europe’s top competition.

And Howard, who has never managed a top four finish in his seven years at Everton, still believes that his side are second favourites for a Champions League berth. He said: "I don't think we are favourites for fourth place.

"It is a little bit in our hands as we have a game in hand [Crystal Palace at home] and we go head-to-head with Arsenal, but they still have four points on us and it is difficult. So we are on the outside looking in – but I think you want to be in the fight always.

"Sure, Arsenal are still favourites for fourth; they are four points ahead of us – but it's our job to make those four points up. If we can do it, then I suppose we will be favourites.’
