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.
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.’
