3-way race for final Champions League places in EPL

There's one game left of the Premier League season but there could just as easily be two games left for Liverpool and Arsenal if the last day results pan out.

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.

Arsenal's victory against Sunderland yesterday kept them in the race, while Manchester United is now mathematically eliminated from any possible top four finish.

The Chilean then bundled in a second from Olivier Giroud's cut-back to take his league tally for the season to 23 - just one goal behind the league's leading scorer Romelu Lukaku.

Third-place Manchester City are also within mathematical reach, but only if they lose at Watford, Arsenal beat Everton and there is a five-goal swing in goal difference.

City has 75 points, Liverpool 73, and Arsenal 72.

"I do not want to think about next season - I want to think about the final we have to play in". "After that you deal with what happens".

Arsene Wenger has called on Arsenal fans to turn out in force for Tuesday's game against Sunderland rather than take part in a boycott created to hasten his removal as manager of the London giants. Squad depth has been an issue in this campaign, so attracting better quality players is a must, and the Champions League will help them do that. "That will be four points more than past year, so let's focus on finishing as well as we can". "It's about how we start the game and how concentrated we are".

City won their first 10 Premier League matches but failed to maintain their title bid.

Arsenal did their part today, but Manchester City didn't cooperate.

It was also a night in which the Sky Blues bade farewell to popular defender Pablo Zabaleta, who played out the final minutes of his nine-year stay with the club after coming on as a 77th substitute for Vincent Kompany.

However, Wenger refuses to give up on the top four as Arsenal could still get their target if they beat Everton on Sunday and Liverpool drop points in their home game against Middlesbrough. We have Petr Cech, [David] Ospina, we have Wojciech Szczesny who is only on loan at Roma and has had an exceptional season.

The Brazilian was absent for Sunday's 4-0 win over West Ham at the London Stadium after failing to recover in time from an injury he had picked up in the goalless draw against Southampton a week before.

The Reds are in good position to return to the Champions League stage, but the door is open for a disappointment with a horrific last-day showing at Anfield against already-relegated Boro.
