Arsene Wenger urges Arsenal fans not to boycott Sunderland game

Arsenal kept alive their slim hopes of a top-four finish with a hard-fought 2-0 win against Sunderland at the Emirates.

The Gunners need a minor miracle to overhaul either Liverpool or Manchester City to finish inside the Premier League top four after all three sides won over the weekend.

Now the race goes to the final day, with Liverpool at home against Middlesbrough and Arsenal at home to Everton - and Wenger insists his men will deal with what happens.

Arsenal must win their two remaining games and rely on third-placed Liverpool or fourth-placed Manchester City slipping up.

"I don't think about the percentages", Wenger said.

City look nearly certain to achieve the bare minimum of a top-four place and could only finish below Arsenal if they lost at Watford, Arsenal won and there was a five-goal swing, with Wenger's side scoring more than City on the day.

"But anyway, I answered for 20 years the question, "the top four is nothing special".

"I would say we would be a victim of a lack of consistency that we have shown through the season..." We have 69 points, we can get to 75.

The Gunners play their second last Premier league game of the season tonight against already relegated Sunderland.

That chance was one of 12 created by the German playmaker - the most in a single game by a Premier League player since records began.

"I think especially at Everton, we were really unlucky because some decisions were really bad on the night".

"I don't understand how the managers speak for other clubs and other teams".

Meanwhile, Sunderland manager David Moyes believes Wenger's comments on teams "going on holiday" was an insult to football.

"We had a hard week playing Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday".

After a goalless first half, Sanchez hit the net twice within nine minutes, in the second half, scoring the first goal in the 72nd minute, following a cross by Granit Xhaka and a pass by Mesut Ozil.

"It will be frustrating if we don't get in".
