Arsenal Will Fight For Top Four Until End Insists Gunners Defender


We look strong again now and we've won our last three away games, so it's positive.

A point at Watford will guarantee a top-four place for Pep Guardiola's City, but they can secure third place - and, crucially, avoid the Champions League play-off round - if they win.

"We got ourselves together and for 70 minutes I thought we were a top team".

Wenger's comments come as Arsenal could finish the campaign with more points than last season - when they were second - and still miss out on a Champions League spot.

Now there are calls for mass boycott of Tuesday's match at home to Sunderland. It wasn't for the lack of trying, it was just that we lost the first goal and then we couldn't really find a way of getting back into it.

"I did alright and made some good saves so I'm pleased with my performance".

We have to improve and be determined at Arsenal.

Yet Arsenal didn't find it easy to kill them off. We'll see how he has recovered today. "(Kieran) Gibbs should be available but Oxlade-Chamberlain is out".

The attack has effected governments, hospitals and corporations, especially those running outdated computer systems. FireEye said it was aware customers had used its reports to successfully identify some associated with the attack.

"I don't think there are a lot of players like him and a player like this who can be the difference during the game, it's rare". They were better, we were nowhere near close enough.

Sunderland's front-line is set to be led by Jermain Defoe, who will be aiming to impress potential Premier League suitors.

Manchester United have reached the final this year and Jose Mourinho has acknowledged he is putting more into beating Ajax in Stockholm next week than in the remaining Premier League fixtures his sixth-placed side face. The Black Cats were booed off in their final home game with a heartless display against Swansea and their travelling fans may choose to stay at home for the next week with a trip to champions Chelsea to follow this.

Arsene Wenger's side are three points off the pace as it stands and can ill-afford to endure any more slip-ups as they attempt to pip Manchester City at the post.

Sunderland are simply too limp and deflated at this point to pose too much of a threat to Arsenal and it is likely going to be a long day at the office for David Moyes and his men, on whom Arsenal are likely to heap the misery.

The Emirates felt the effects of Arsenal fans protesting.

Pushed on the recent trend of empty seats, Wenger claimed those matches were sell-outs, as Arsenal judge attendance on tickets sold before the event rather than the number of supporters inside the stadium.
