Arsene Wenger hopes Alexis Sanchez will continue proving his worth at Arsenal for the long term after the Chilean global led the Gunners to a 2-0 victory over Sunderland on Tuesday (16 May) by scoring two goals.
Sanchez scored two poachers' efforts in the last 20 minutes to break the resistance of outstanding goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and hand the Gunners a lifeline in their chase for a 21st consecutive top-four Premier League finish.
However, Arsenal must beat Everton and hope that Liverpool drop points at home to Middlesbrough if they are to sneak in to the Champions League, despite already having surpassed their tally of points for last season, when they finished second.
City need a point from their final match to be absolutely sure of Champions League football after they beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1 while fifth-placed Arsenal stayed in the hunt by beating relegated Sunderland 2-0.
Assad government denies U.S. allegations of mass killings
The deal was reached with support from Iran and Turkey during ceasefire talks in the Kazakh capital of Astana earlier this month. And recall, of course, that this same Assad government is newly emboldened by America's disengagement.
The 23-year-old was in fine form as Sunderland slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Arsenal in the Premier League on Tuesday, making several stops that drew praise from Wenger.
'We made 71 points and were second.
Wenger - who has yet to sign a new contract with the club - has received his fair share of criticism following their underwhelming results, but the Frenchman feels their potential failure to clinch a top-four finish is very much down their rivals' improvements rather than their own struggles.
"I think nobody questions his desire and quality".
Kuwait next to back oil production cap extension
It seems likely that the current deal amongst Opec nations and some other key oil producing nations will be extended. An agreement to cut production was reached in September last year, but the deal was due to run out later this year.
But Wenger said it didn't affect his players either. "That would probably get my goat up more than anything".
That did not look likely to happen three or four weeks ago, but we needed to be patient and it took us a while to get into our rhythm.
"You want all the teams to fight like Sunderland did tonight".
In the second-half, Arsenal upped the tempo, although Nacho Monreal nearly scored a freaky own-goal, an incident which would lead to an equally odd indirect free-kick for Sunderland deep inside the Gunners' box.
