Wenger on missing fans: Arsenal 'sold out'

As it stands, Arsenal move to within one point of the top four and would require a win over Everton and for Liverpool to drop points at home to Middlesbrough on the final day to secure Champions League football next season.

Arsenal remained fifth in the standings, a point behind Liverpool and three adrift of Manchester City.

Manchester City's victory over West Brom means Arsenal need to beat Everton on Sunday and hope Liverpool slip up at home to Middlesbrough to gate-crash the top four.

The simple truth is that Wenger can only now reinvigorate most Arsenal fans by competing seriously to lift either the Premier League or Champions League.

Arsenal upped things slightly in the second half and they eventually made it count on 72 minutes.

There were swathes of empty seats at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday as fans stayed away in protest at Wenger's failings and the indignity of spending their Thursday nights trekking to unglamourous destinations in the Europa League would be the final straw.

"We are in third position so it's in our hands", Guardiola, who will finish a season trophy-less as manager for the first time, said.

To meet that goal, he appointed well-known environmentalist Nicolas Hulot as ecology minister and a publisher as culture minister. Macron's own La Republique en Marche movement is fielding candidates for the elections- more than 400 of whom have been chosen.

"Firstly, he scored a lot of goals for us but his first job is not to be a striker, it is more midfield but he is an unbelievable player".

After the win, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said, "We had plenty of shots on goal but we needed to be patient".

David Moyes was proud of his Sunderland players and dismissed Wenger's comments made on Monday that some Premier League teams had "released their focus" once they had nothing to fight for.

"I'm surprised all of a sudden it becomes a big deal".

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.

"We can talk and talk and talk, but let's make 75 points. if you look at the points we can make it's one of the best in the last 10 years".
