Arsene Wenger’s men have enrolled their sixth straight consecutive Premier league win with a 2-0 result against the bottom side, Sunderland, but even this run might not be enough for the Gunners to grab the fourth place which leads into Champions league competition next season and Arsenal likely would have to settle with Europa league.
After a goalless first half, nine minutes in the second half was enough for Arsenal to book another three points. Sanchez opened the scoring in the 72nd and completed his double in the 81st, sealing the final result as well.
With one round to go situation for Arsenal it’s not the best one as the Gunners sit on the 5th place, having one point less than Liverpool and three less than Manchester City. This means either the Reds or the Citizens would have to drop some points in the last round and Arsenal should beat Everton at home to snatch Champions league place. In the last round, Liverpool will host Middlesbrough while Man City will play away at Watford.
Pep Guardiola’s men have enrolled an easy home 3-1 win against West Bromwich Albion, thus practically securing the Champions places, but in the last round everything can change. The main this for the Citizens is not to lose against Watford and they’ll see the most popular European club competition. As for the game, Gabriel Jesus in the 27th minute opened the scoring for the Citizens, De Bruyne two minutes later raised the score to 2-0 while Yaya Toure in the 57th minute scored for 3-0.
