Fulham manager Martin Jol has backed Arsenal to finish in the top four once again this season and qualify for next year's Champions League.

Arsenal are locked in a three-way battle with London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham in the race for a top four finish, with David Moyes' Everton considered outsiders.

In an interview with The Sun, Jol said: "I admire Wenger, he is an unbelievable manager.

"He is emotional, he wants to win but even this season if you look at them they have been under pressure.

"I think they will make the top four."

Arsene Wenger's men have been fighting for a top four place all season and for a while it looked like they were going to miss out for the first time since Wenger took over 16 years ago.

However an impressive run of seven wins in nine have seen Arsenal go above Tottenham into the top four, which is where Wenger will want to be once the season ends.

Arsenal go to Craven Cottage later today, hoping to get back to winning ways at a ground and fixture they have failed to take maximum points from in recent years.

And Fulham boss Martin Jol is hoping the Cottagers can put a dent in Arsenal's Champions League ambitions. 

"Arsenal have done ever so well the last couple of months," Jol added.

"They are on the top now and they want to play Champions League football. But hopefully we can get back to winning ways because that is important."

The Gunners have only won once in their last four trips to Craven Cottage, whilst Fulham go into this tie off the back of a 3-0 defeat at home to Chelsea on Wednesday night.
