John Barnes has told Arsenal fans to forget about European football for another season, with the former Liverpool and England winger predicting the Gunners will finish 'between sixth and eighth' this year.

Arsenal have finished eighth for the past two seasons and made a dismal start to the current campaign, suffering three successive defeats to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City without scoring a goal.

Mikel Arteta's side picked up their first league win last Saturday - beating Norwich City 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium - but Arsenal are still just 16th in the table and already find themselves seven points adrift of the top-four places.

Asked about Arsenal's prospects this season and if they could fall short of European football yet again, Barnes told BonusCodeBets.

Ex-striker Chris Sutton believes Arsenal need to stick by Arteta despite their struggles, especially given the manager oversaw a spending spree of almost £150m earlier in the summer.

More: Arsenal FC 'They've spent big money, they've spent a lot of money, £150m. "If that's the process you have to give him the opportunity, you have to trust this manager because if you get another manager in, the first thing he's going to say is,"we need to rip this squad up and you need to give me another £150m". 'So they have to give him time and stick with him.

Arsenal travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday.
