Gary Neville tips Arsenal to secure a top four finish

Gary Neville believes if Arsenal achieve a top four finish and win the FA Cup it will have been a good season for Arsene Wenger's side.

The former England international turned Sky Sports pundit has also tipped the Gunners to achieve both goals because he doesn't believe Everton have what it takes to not drop points in all their remaining fixtures.

Arsenal came back from a goal down to beat West Ham at the Emirates on Tuesday night and leap frogged Everton into fourth place by a point. The Toffees have a chance to regain the Champions League spot with a win over Crystal Palace at Goodison Park tonight.

Neville told Sky Sports viewers:
"We've probably expected them to do better having been in the position they were two or three months ago, where there was talk about the title. 
"I think to be fair if they got fourth and if they won the FA Cup I think it would be a great season for them. 
"I think in terms of tonight they've haven't been at their best but they're playing against teams that even if they're not at their best they can win. 
"Everton have won a couple of games in the last few weeks against Fulham away, at Sunderland where they haven't been at their best. 
"I think there is games that they've got: Southampton away, City and United where they are going to have to be at their absolute best to get full points. 
"And I don't think Everton will get full points out of those games and that's why I think Arsenal will get fourth. 
"We'll see. But that is where I think Arsenal have that edge over Everton."
Arsenal play follow FA Cup finalists Hull City this Sunday, followed by games against Newcastle (H), West Brom (H) and Norwich (A).

After facing Crystal Palace tonight, Everton play Manchester United (H), Southampton (A), Manchester City (H) and Hull City (A).
