Laudrup, whose in-form side can leapfrog their opponents with a win at the Emirates, reckons fourth spot is the best the Gunners can hope for.
The Dane said: "The title is between three teams, the two Manchesters and Chelsea. At the moment, the two Manchesters have the advantage of points, momentum and form.
"They are very strong and winning difficult games and are solid when they don't play well.
"They have to do something else. Arsene Wenger has done a great job for a number of years but it's more difficult for them now because other teams have much more money to buy those two forward players who can make the difference.
"Money doesn't always buy you titles... but it helps."
