Arsenal Win Keeps The Pressure On Manchester City And Liverpool

Young defender Rob Holding tussles with Marko Arnautovic during the Gunners 4-1 victory

"When you have a player like this in your team, to show the way we want to grow together, it is important and I think he has a lot of players behind him to keep him".

With one game remaining, the Gunners are 18 points behind Antonio Conte's side, who were crowned Premier League champions last Friday.

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.

"I don't even think about percentage, I just think about let's make sure we win the game, because we play against Everton".

"I want to absolutely make sure we are in there, but let's get to 75 points and see what happens".

"I answer for 20 years the question: 'is top four anything special?' So I don't know why, suddenly, it could become such a big problem. It would be the first time you make 75 points and aren't in the top four". "I'm quite surprised", he said. You want all the teams to fight like Sunderland did tonight.

The Arsenal manager was unsure of starting Sanchez due to a knock he was carrying, but forty minutes prior to kick off, Wenger made his decision and threw Sanchez into the starting line-up. Once he is on the pitch and has the ball he becomes the devil and forgets his pain.

Wenger claimed not to have noticed the massive number of empty seats inside the stadium or to care about them. It had felt like the latest protest against him and his desire to continue into next season.

Despite camping out in the Sunderland half, Wenger's side had few clear-cut chances after his early save from Giroud and it was his counterpart Petr Cech who had to dive low to stop Didier N'Gong scoring against the run of play. When you play football, you do not count how many people are sitting in the stand. "We are sold out".

But Moyes said after Monday's 2-0 loss to Arsenal that Wenger's comments were doing a disservice to less powerful clubs and the sport as a whole.

"The teams have too much pride, the players have too much pride, every game matters, whatever team you support or whoever you play for, you play for the jersey, and would hope every player would do that".
