The loss to Liverpool has left Arsenal’s already fragile hopes of qualifying for next season’s UEFA Champions League through the Premier League table hanging by a thread.

 

But even though the Gunners are currently ten points behind fourth-placed West Ham United, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is refusing to throw in the towel on Arsenal’s chances If finishing in the top four this season.

 

Speaking at a pre-match conference Arteta said “Until it’s mathematically impossible, you have to fight. There is no other way to do it.

 

“We have to be realistic with where we are in the league and it’s extremely difficult.
“But it’s mathematically possible so we have to stick to that.”

Kieran Tierney will be out for 4 to 6 weeks after damaging his knee ligaments in the defeat against Liverpool.

 

Arteta also faces an anxious wait for the availability of Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian international, who is currently on loan to Arsenal from Real Madrid, twisted his ankle while on international duty, but was still considered fit enough to play the full 90 minutes of the Liverpool clash.

Full Arsenal squad available to face Slavia Prague:

Goalkeepers: Bernd Leno, Mat Ryan & Karl Hein.

Defenders: Hector Bellerin, Cedric Soares, Gabriel Magalhaes, Rob Holding, Pablo Mari & Calum Chambers
