McDermottâs relegation-threatened Reading take on the Gunners tonight with both clubs going through unrest.
He said: âArsenal are a massive club and well run financially, a terrific institution. I canât see it as them being in crisis.
âThey generally come good at the back end of the season.
However many years since Arsene has been there, they have made the Champions League. I have always kept a lose eye on how Arsenal are doing because I was there eight years and they taught me a lot.
âHistorically Arsenal are in the top three or four every season.â
