Arsenal Win Keeps The Pressure On Manchester City And Liverpool

Wenger's gamble paid off as Sanchez scored twice after the break to keep Arsenal's slim top-four hopes alive and the Gunners boss had nothing but praise for his star attacker after the final whistle.

Alexis Sanchez was once again the man who made a big difference for Arsenal on Tuesday night as they played their 37th game of the season at Emirates Stadium, netting a brace against relegated Sunderland.

The final Champions League spot will be decided on Sunday, with Arsenal hoping Liverpool drop points at relegated Middlesbrough while they have a tough game against 7th-placed Everton.

Guardiola said Wenger had little to complain about, with his side facing already-relegated Sunderland and Everton, who can not move from seventh, in their final two league games.

"I would say yes because in the two games we were leading 1-0 and we got caught in the second half", Wenger said of those damaging results.

"I answered for 20 years the question, "the top four is nothing special". I'm quite surprised", he said. If we make 75 points, we can only be beaten by one point.

"Sunderland fought and you want that in the Premier League, that is what you want from every team".

"We had a hard patch after the Bayern [Munich] game because it was hard to recover".

But even if the Gunners do upset the odds by reaching the Champions League, a number of fan groups are still calling for Wenger's near 21-year reign to come to an end.

"I never saw one player in my life go on to the pitch and not try to win the game". Moyes said: "That's an insult to footballers".

"It will be a different season because they will have to play on Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday but, look, I don't know what will happen next season".

"I believe finishing outside the top four will not have any influence on how the club will be led and how we will operate on the transfer market", he added.

"But because we can't get the first goal, it makes it really hard".
