They have made the right appointments in Frank Lampard and Jody Morris but will have to be patient.‘They have lost Eden Hazard, are under a transfer ban and are without the injured Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.’Murphy also believes Arsenal are most at risk of dropping out of the top six, adding: ‘Arsenal look most vulnerable.‘It would be good to see someone else break through but I think the Gunners have too much firepower in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and new boy Nicolas Pepe to lose their status.’More: FootballBruno Fernandes responds to Man Utd bust-up rumours with Ole Gunnar SolskjaerNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira moves Danny Murphy’s Premier League predictions 1.
