Former Arsenal defender wants Eastlands outfit in top four

Ashley Cole hopes Manchester City force his former club Arsenal out of the top four of the Premier League. The Chelsea and England defender angered Gunners fans when he moved to their fierce capital rivals in 2006. Cole has now admitted that he would rather see City, who have spent heavily on a host of stars over the summer, finish above his ex-employers. "I have friends at City and I hope they do really well - and that they finish above Arsenal," said the full-back. "I think it's going to be hard for City but they could do it. They may click straight away and it's magic. I hope they do."
