Sanchez keeps Arsenal in top-four hunt

39th EPL match between Arsenal & Liverpool could be on

Everton's dominant home record of just two league losses in 19 games at Goodison Park has helped them secure a seventh-placed finish despite their dismal away record of four wins in 18 away league fixtures so far.

But it's worth remembering that Middlesbrough haven't won an away match in the league since August - and that was against Sunderland.

Looking for a fifth straight win, Arsenal have been here before, of course, with their European qualification fate coming down to the final day of the season a number of times.

Will Liverpool hold their nerve and secure a top-four finish?

The imposing striker leads the Premier League scoring charts by one goal (24), and he will be desperate to finish the season as the victor of the Golden Boot award. Maybe that hinges on whether they do sneak a top-four finish and also how May 27's FA Cup final against Chelsea pans out.

Arsenal's fans have been a disgrace this season, and most didn't even turn up to their must-win mid-week clash against Sunderland a few days ago - so we're not sure if they'll pay much attention to the Czech's words... The more cynical view, however, is that it is too little, too late, with Liverpool likely to condemn the Gunners to the Thursday nights in the Europa League.

For Arsenal to avoid missing out on the Champions League for the first time in 20 years, they must beat Everton at home on Sunday, while hoping for a slip from either Liverpool or City.

City (75 points, 36 goal difference, 75 goals scored) have the edge over Liverpool (73, 33, 75) and Arsenal (72, 31, 74).

Chelsea's £38 million for finishing top will be part of around £150 million in Premier League payments this season.

Wins for both Arsenal and Manchester City on Tuesday cranked the pressure on Jurgen Klopp's side ahead of their Premier League finale against Middlesbrough. The Eagles have won seven of their last 12 games and have already won at Anfield and Stamford Bridge this season.

"Luck" seems to be a word largely associated Jose Mourinho's Manchester United, who have had plenty of injuries and failed to win games after dominating.

"I was happy about the last game, especially the second half because we showed we are here for working hard and trying everything, and we put in the right tools to beat them".

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the only player confirmed as unavailable for the upcoming match, although we are well aware that Santi Cazorla is still sidelined as he has been since 2016.
