Sanchez like a devil on the pitch - Wenger

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring their first goal

Arsenal maintained their outside chance of qualifying for the Champions League thanks to Alexis Sanchez's two close-range goals, but they took longer than expected to find a way past Sunderland's outstanding goalkeeper Jordan Pickford (who made 11 saves) and complete a 2-0 win.

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

"We have 72 points now and we have to focus to get to 75".

Mustafi had a late header brilliantly turned on to the bar by Pickford but Sanchez had once again provided the heroics to keep Arsenal's league campaign alive until the final day.

Thousands of empty seats greeted the players as the game got under way, many staying away as part of a boycott organised in protest against Wenger signing a new deal and remaining in charge beyond the FA Cup final meeting with Chelsea.

ARSENAL beat Sunderland in the Premier League tonight - here's some of the best reaction from Gunners fans. "I want to absolutely make sure we are in there".

"We had plenty of shots on goal, but we needed to be patient", Wenger said.

"He has developed here and become a top class player".

However, Wenger ruled out a major blow after the game, suggesting that the Wales worldwide could be ready for both the coming Premier League against Middlesbrough and the FA Cup final with Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger has questioned the integrity of some Premier League teams who have secured their top-flight status for next season, as he faces the prospect of failing to guide Arsenal to the Champions League for the first time since the 1997-98 season. "We were frustrated at half-time not to be leading", Wenger added.

"I think when you are brought up in this country you are brought up to show that every game matters and whatever team you support, you play for the jersey".

Wenger admitted his own team's failings will be to blame if they finish outside the top four for the first time since he arrived at the club more than 20 years ago.
