Arsenal players keen on Sanchez stay, says Koscielny

19 Mai 2017

The Gunners still have the faintest hope of salvaging something from this season, with a top four place still mathematically possible heading into the final day of the Premier League season, though the situation is out of their hands.

Alexis Sanchez says Arsenal's inability to mount a sustained challenge on the Premier League title is the cause for his frustrations.

Asked about the number of fans who stayed away from the game, Wenger said: "We have to focus on our job, not looking at how many people are in the stands".

"We made 71 points and were second". Whatever they want, we will see it at the end of the tournament. "After that you deal with what happens".

Liverpool host already-relegated Middlesbrough on the final while City go to Watford and Arsenal are at home against Everton.

"We can get to 75 points, that would be four points more than last season".

"It is a hard situation, we don't know what happens with the boss", he said. There is a fear that if Arsenal give them ridiculous sums of money to stay, they could throw their toys out of the pram once more when things go wrong. But rock-bottom Sunderland twice threatened on the counter-attack, with Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech obliged to save from Didier Ndong and Jermain Defoe.

Sunderland's 23-year-old keeper Jordan Pickford was having the game of his life until the Chilean snuck behind the defence to tap in Mesut Ozil's cut-back in minute 72. "What they like, what they don't like", Sanchez was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

In that case, the teams will be tied on points, goal difference and goals for.

Sergio Aguero's artful back-heel released De Bruyne, whose deflected cross from the left was tapped in by Gabriel Jesus.

City took 27 minutes to break down West Brom but then scored twice in two minutes with Jesus first being set up by De Bruyne and then returning the compliment. "We have Petr Cech, Ospina, we have Wojciech who is only on loan at Roma and has had an exceptional season".

I don't think Arsenal's problems can be solved with just one major signing but it's important we send out a clear message of intent, especially with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea likely to spend heavily in the close-season.
