Arsenal take Premier League top-four race to last day of season

Peter Crouch's goal ensured Arsenal have now conceded 43 times in the Premier League

Peter Crouch's goal ensured Arsenal have now conceded 43 times in the Premier League

Arsenal's 2-0 win meant that Manchester City, 3-1 winners at home against West Bromwich Albion, will still need a point to be absolutely certain of finishing in the top four.

They could also make it in if Manchester City lose at Watford and there is a five-goal swing in the goal difference between the pair.

Pickford foiled Arsenal after that and while it was job done as they gained three points, they stay fifth and are still outsiders to finish in the top four.

Following his side's 2-0 win over Sunderland on Tuesday night, Wenger was asked where Arsenal have gone wrong in the title race.

Wenger's own position still remains a mystery as he has yet to announce if he will sign a new deal to remain at the club beyond the FA Cup final meeting with Chelsea in two weeks' time. "You want all the teams to fight like Sunderland did tonight and, after, you have to accept the result".

"I would hate it if anyone would question me if I was going to chuck a game away".

But, they have an outside chance of catching Liverpool, who will host already-relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield, while Arsenal take on Everton. We now have 72 and want to go to 75.

'We have lost three away games recently that we shouldn't have lost - at West Brom just before the worldwide break, and after at Crystal Palace.

Sanchez finally broke down their resistance as he tapped home Mesut Ozil's cross before heading home from close range with nine minutes left.

David Moyes' Sunderland fell further back as the match progressed, clearly happy with the draw and it seemed as the Arsenal supporters groups that had boycotted the game would be vindicated. The 23-year-old had 11 outstanding saves to keep Sunderland's fighting spirit alive. "We were in most of the game until the first goal went in and then they turned the heat up - but we had a right go and the attitude was there again so we can't complain about that".

In the second-half, Arsenal upped the tempo, although Nacho Monreal nearly scored a freaky own-goal, an incident which would lead to an equally unusual indirect free-kick for Sunderland deep inside the Gunners' box.

"I thought the team did a lot of good things".
