Arsenal need a miracle to finish in the top four this season after stumbling to a draw in their last home league game. Victory at Burnley next Sunday, combined with a defeat for Tottenham Hotspur and a freakish swing in goal difference, could yet save Unai Emery’s team but, realistically, their chances of reaching next season’s Champions League depend on winning this season’s Europa League. They have a 3-1 lead going into Thursday’s away leg of the semi-final in Valencia. That may not be enough if they play the way they did here.
