Arsenal have missed out on a top four finish in the last two EPL seasons to deny their fans a Champions League football.
Upson, however, believes Arsenal new manager, Unai Emery, will lead the Emirates club to secure a Champions League spot for the first time since 2016.
“I think so [they will finish in the top four],” Upson told Sky Sports’ The Debate.
“The signings they’ve made have addressed the positions and signings they needed to be better.
“They are signings who will do the basics and do them well.”
Arsenal will kick off their EPL campaign against Manchester City this Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
