Fulham boss Roy Hodgson can't see Arsenal toppling out of the top four.

"There's so much talk about Man City, and to some extent Tottenham, making the top four after the money they have spent, but it would take a brave man who would stake his house on a team like Arsenal not making the top four," the 62-year-old said.

"Arsene's career has been second to none. It has been quite incredible the job he has done there, at Monaco and at Nagoya Grampus Eight.

"He's a first-class manager and coach and all the praise that has been showered his way is praise that, for me, has been fully deserved."
