Former Manchester United assistant coach Michael Carrick believes Arsenal will take out fourth-position on the table.
The Gunners are two points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and five points ahead of sixth-placed United.
Speaking after Arsenal's 1-0 win at West Ham on Sunday, Carrick toldPremier League Productions: "People ask the question, would you rather have the points in the bag or would you rather be chasing and without so much pressure?
"I would much rather be in a position where it's in your own hands, 100 per cent. And that's where Arsenal have found themselves so credit to them that have put themselves in this position.
"West Ham was not an easy game for them but they got the win. It gives them a great chance now."
