Arsenal fans are still confident that they will be watching Champions League football at the Emirates next season.


GiveMeFootball surveyed over 3,500 Gunners fans on Facebook, and found that an overwhelming 76% of them believed their team will secure top-flight European football come May 13.


This season's battle for the fourth and final Champions League spot has never been more competitive, and the North London club will have to fight off strong challenges form Chelsea, Newcastle United and Liverpool if they are to qualify for Europe's stellar competition.


Since taking over at the club 15 years ago, Arsene Wenger has never finished outside the top four. But the Gunners, who currently sit three points off fourth placed Chelsea, have struggled at times this season, with some fans even calling for the Frenchman to be sacked.


However, after their 7-1 drubbing of Blackburn Rovers at the Emirates last Saturday, it seems supporters have become more confident in their teams chances of qualification to Europe's elite event.


But the win has failed to convince all Arsenal's fans, and a sizable 14% are fearing the worst, believing their team are not strong enough to deliver a top four finish this season.


In contrast, a surprising 8% of supporters think their side are still capable of winning their first Premier League title since 2004. But, with a 17 point gap to make up on pace setters Manchester City, and odds of over 300/1, this seems unlikely.


The survey also found that 2% of fans are targeting a runners-up spot for Wenger's men, who travel to the Premier League's in-form Sunderland this Saturday
