Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal stopper David Seaman believes that it can still be a great season for Arsenal in spite of the Gunners lagging behind in the race for the league title.

Arsenal led the table for much of this season, but failed to capitalise on their lead and are currently struggling to secure a place in the top four, with Everton breathing down their necks.

The Toffees are only one point behind the Gunners with a game in hand and will pip Arsenal to fourth place if they can win all their remaining games. However, they have some tough games coming up against the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Southampton, which will give the Gunners hope.

Moreover, Arsenal are also leading the race to win the FA Cup, with the Gunners currently favourites to beat Wigan and make their way into the final of England's most prestigious cup competition. The Gunners have not won a trophy in nine years and need a push in the back to bring back that winning mentality, which has eluded them in recent years.

Seaman, who has won trophies under Arsene Wenger, insists that the Frenchman is still the right man to take Arsenal forward and an FA Cup win followed by a fourth place finish should be viewed as a brilliant return.

"There are more and more people coming up to me saying it is time that he [Wenger] left. But, for me, he is a great manager. I know some fans are going crazy but if we win the FA Cup and get in the top four that, on paper, looks like a great season for Arsenal," Seaman told talkSPORT.

Arsenal failed to win the trophy the last time they made their way to Wembley in the League Cup final in 2011 when a mix up between Laurent Koscielny and Wojciech Szczesny allowed Birmingham to sneak in a goal in the final minute of the game.

However, having had a great run in the league thus far, where they beat Everton, Tottenham and Liverpool, the Gunners will be confident of going all the way and leaving the burden of failure behind them.
