Arsene Wenger praises devilish Alexis Sanchez after brace against Sunderland

Arsene Wenger has not given up on a top-four finish in the Premier League after Arsenal moved past their points tally from last season with a 2-0 win over Sunderland on Tuesday. After, you have to accept the result.

'We have gone through a hard period away from home, because I think at home if you look at our record it's quite good.

Wenger said: "No, you never know".

Toure then put the game beyond doubt with the third early in the second half and though Hal Robson-Kanu pulled one back late on, West Brom were well beaten. Wenger used Sanchez's performance as another chance to emphasise to him the utility in staying at Arsenal, even as Chelsea and Manchester City hover.

But the boss says they must now look at the positives as the Gunners could still qualify for the Europa League with a higher points total than they had last season.

"I think especially at Everton, we were really unlucky because some decisions were really bad on the night. We want to keep him with us because we know he is so important for our team". "I want to absolutely make sure we are in there".

Once the ransomware infected NHS machines, it quickly travelled across the NHS network spreading from computer to computer. After striking West Bengal Electricity utility, WannaCry ransomware has also struck Kerala's Wayanad Panchayat office.

The Chilean scored in the 72nd and 81st minutes to go within a point of Liverpool and at least put some pressure on their top-four rivals. "I'm quite surprised", he said.

Jurgen Klopp will go into that fixture full of confidence after his team secured a comprehensive 4-0 win away at West Ham last time out.

Sunderland had threatened twice on the break, through Didier N'Dong and Jermain Defoe, and had a chance to lead straight after half-time from an indirect free-kick six yards out, but Sebastian Larsson scooped into the six-yard box and Arsenal cleared. "When you are brought up in this country, you are brought up to show that every game matters".

"We had a hard patch after the Bayern game because it was hard to recover".

"My favourite moments were when we beat Manchester United in the (FA Cup) semi-final at Wembley (in 2011) and the first Premier League we won with Sergio Aguero's goal (in 2012)", Zabaleta told fans in an on-pitch address.
