But O’Hara doesn’t like it!

The Gunners’ 3-2 victory over Watford on Sunday saw Mikel Arteta’s side move Manchester United into fourth place and put them in a strong position to finish in one of the coveted Champions League spots.

Crucially for O’Hara, they are also six points clear of Spurs, who currently sit in seventh place.

And the former midfielder, who played 56 times for his boyhood club, has praised Arsenal – but admits he would be gutted if they beat Tottenham to make the top four.

“[Arsenal] look really good, they look decent,” O’Hara admitted on talkSPORT Breakfast.

“They look like a good side, they’re solid defensively – they look like a good outfit

“I think it’s up to them now, the top four, really.”

He added: “I just watch Manchester United and I watch Spurs – they’re just a team of individuals.

“Manchester United have better players but they give up. Mentally they are not there.

“Arsenal have that kind of team spirit, something about them where they want to win.

“They have that winning mentality and I think they have the teeth in their teeth and they know it’s there for them to get Champions League football.

“I think Arteta is going to do it, really.

“And it’s going to kill me!”
