  • Arsene Wenger praises devilish Alexis Sanchez after brace against Sunderland

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is refusing to give up hope of finishing in the top four this season after a 2-0 win over Sunderland took the race to the final day.

Arsene Wenger has hailed Alexis Sanchez's desire after he played through the pain barrier to help Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-0 at Emirates Stadium.

If the Gunners beat Everton at home, and Liverpool lose or draw against Middlesbrough, Wenger's boys will scrape into the Champions League yet again.

The Gunners with 72 points are now just a point away from Liverpool, the fourth placed team on the table, with each team having just a game left to play.

Wenger has never finished outside of the top four in a full season at helm since his appointment in 1996.

"I answer for 20 years the question: 'Is the top four nothing special?' I don't know why, suddenly, it could become such a big problem [not to finish in the top four]".

Wizards put up Wall to bring down Celtics in heated playoff
The Wizards got into the paint with nearly no resistance and despite starting Amir Johnson , there was zero presence on the glass. He was loudly booed every time he touched the ball, including a missed three with a minute left in the first quarter.


"I feel he had something still (to give)", Wenger said. We can talk and talk, but at the end let's make 75 points.

"They had that bad run of form around the Christmas period and the players and manager couldn't turn that around quick enough to give themselves a good chance to get into the top four".

"We set out to stop them and contain them and I thought for long periods we did that". Let yours be one of the many gaps in the stands that send a direct and unarguable message to the directors. In the games like that when you go to Stoke you need at some stage to suffer, to stick together and that's what we did. I believe he has become a complete player and developed very well at Arsenal Football Club.

It has been a miserable season for David Moyes and the club, but the Scot could not fault his players' effort at the Emirates.

Sunderland had threatened twice on the break, through Didier N'Dong and Jermain Defoe, and had a chance to lead straight after half-time from an indirect free-kick six yards out, but Sebastian Larsson scooped into the six-yard box and Arsenal cleared. "We have to adapt to that, so every manager and every team makes whatever he wants".
