BURNLEY, England (AP) — With the major honors set to elude Arsenal again, chief executive Ivan Gazidis says he is "not happy."

And Gazidis fears Arsenal will find it harder in future just to maintain its perennial place in the top four Champions League qualification places due to a surge in television cash.

Gazidis says the Premier League is "going to become more competitive which is going to be more challenging for clubs like us."

The Gunners haven't won the league since 2004 and their first eight-game winning run since then has propelled them to second. Earlier setbacks, though, for Arsene Wenger's team helped Chelsea to establish a commanding lead.

Gazidis says "we are not happy but we are going to keep pushing to the end and see how far we can go."
