Arsenal forward, Theo Walcott has admitted that it would be a tragedy if the club don't achieve a top-four finish and if they miss out on the chance of Champions League football next year.

The Gunners are currently sitting in fifth position and are fighting against London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham for the all-important top-four finish, however they will also be looking over their shoulders as Everton and Liverpool are both fighting for a spot as well.

Arsenal were victorious over Swansea on Saturday thanks to goals from Nacho Monreal and Gervinho which put the Gunners just four points behind Tottenham and five points behind Chelsea.

Tottenham then got beat at home to Fulham on Sunday thanks to a Dimitar Berbatov and that will give Arsenal a big morale boost as they look to produce another season run-in like they had last season.

Walcott has said that if Arsenal were to miss out on a top-four finish, it would be a tragedy for the club.

Walcott told The Mirror: "We want to be at places like Bayern Munich again.

"It would be a tragedy for this team not to be in the Champions League.

"The way we played in Germany shows how much we have underperformed at times this season. 

"It’s been up and down. For the big occasions, we tend to turn up – it’s just very frustrating.

"Since I’ve been at Arsenal, I’ve always been in the Champions League and I definitely want to keep it that way."
