Podolski: Arsenal missing Champions League would be disaster

Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski says failing to qualify for the Champions League would be a "disaster".

Arsenal entertain West Ham on Tuesday night having been edged out of the top four by Everton over the weekend, and there will be some tired legs after their FA Cup semi-final defeat of Wigan went all the way to penalties.

Podolski said: "Every season is a pressure when you don't win anything and the newspapers speak about it, the fans gets nervous but we have the chance this year to win the FA Cup so maybe it helps the club, us and the boss.

"But the other important thing is to get fourth place back because when you don't play in the Champions League, it's a disaster."
