Wenger's future at Arsenal will be decided after FA Cup final

As well as a number of vocal fans protesting for Wenger to leave this summer rather than sign a fresh deal when his current one expires, ex-players such as Ian Wright, Paul Merson, Lee Dixon, Martin Keown and Thierry Henry have spoken disapprovingly about their former boss.

Asked if Sunday's clash against Everton will be his last game at the Emirates, the Frenchman said in a press conference: "Of the season? yes." .

The under-pressure manager is out of contract at the end of the season and is facing growing calls to quit.

In other words, Wenger's first finish outside the Premier League's top four could be finessed into a minor regression, a nothing-to-see-here, one-off slip that should have no bearing on his wish to reign until the sun goes cold.

Speaking of Arsenal star players, Alexis Sanchez will nearly surely leave the club if Arsenal fail to book their place in the Champions League. For Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal, Champions League qualification, the most lucrative prize on offer, can still be won or lost.

"It doesn't matter about chances".

"We have to do our job, we are professionals. That's all we can do, win our game".

Tony Adams does not think a return to Arsenal is possible while Arsene Wenger is at the club after once claiming the Frenchman "couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag".

"First of all, they are under contract. I'd hate anyone questioning whether we would chuck a game", Moyes said. The big difference is it's the last one and so it's a big opportunity for us.

"No, it's Tuesday night against Sunderland, everyone expects us to win", he said. Despite the rumblings around tensions in the dressing room, and the eruption of controversy around his exclusion from the starting XI at Liverpool, he has comfortably been the best thing about this season and consistently the most exciting player to watch.

Robin van Persie scored 30 league goals in his final campaign, and with 23 this season, Sanchez will not trouble that mark.

Tottenham, guaranteed to finish in second place behind champion Chelsea, ends its season at relegated Hull.

Arsenal have played many important fixtures during Wenger's tenure.

"There needs to be a lot of change, a lot of change", he said on Sky Sports.

Wayne Rooney could also play because he is unlikely to start against Ajax.

Chelsea can, however, and if Diego Costa leaves Stamford Bridge, the Blues could be interested in bringing Lukaku back to west London.

The attendance at the Emirates was significantly lower than usual for the game against the Black Cats, plenty of empty seats visible at the 60,000-seater stadium.
