EPL wrap: Chelsea overcome Watford; wins for Arsenal, Manchester City

EPL wrap: Chelsea overcome Watford; wins for Arsenal, Manchester City

Arsenal kept their Premier League top-four hopes alive heading into the final day of the season thanks to a 2-0 victory over Sunderland on Wednesday night.

Arsenal created numerous chances throughout the game, but initially struggled to find a way past impressive Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

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.

Arsene Wenger's side need to win their final match on Sunday against Everton at home and hope Liverpool [facing Middlesbrough at home] or Manchester City [at Watfordaway] slip-up in their respective games to qualify.

Wenger has yet to say whether or not he will remain in charge next season, but despite his team's predicament, he opted to take a swipe at the critics who have ridiculed his pride in leading Arsenal into the Champions League for the last 19 years.

"We made 71 points and were second".

Smalling is in line to take his place alongside Daley Blind if he can prove his fitness ahead of the trip to Sweden. The two teams meet next Wednesday in Stockholm with UEFA's second biggest club trophy up for grabs.

Swathes of empty red seats at a hushed Emirates Stadium illustrated the apathy of some Gunners fans, the subdued atmosphere compounded by Arsenal failing to make their early dominance count. And I think Ozil has to stay.

"It shows as well that if you look at his numbers, he has developed here as a player and has become a top-class player and has not wasted his time here". Even if you only had one per cent you would have to play totally 100 per cent.

As for the usual talk over his future, Wenger was once again playing with a very straight bat.

David Moyes was proud of his Sunderland players and dismissed Wenger's comments made on Monday that some Premier League teams had "released their focus" once they had nothing to fight for. We didn't play well on Saturday, we know that but I think you can see Sunderland had a go, tried to score at times but we were outclassed by a better football team.

"I felt he had something left still", said Wenger, who only chose to start Sanchez at 4pm on the day of the game.
