Sunderland pull level with unwanted Premier League record for finishing bottom

The upturn in results looks like coming too late for Arsene Wenger and his side, however, as a place in the top four is now improbable with Liverpool and Manchester City also victorious over the weekend.

Arsenal face relegated Sunderland later on Tuesday, and can still add a trophy to their cabinet this season by beating Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 27. "You will always have regrets because you could have one point more".

The game was Iwobi's 25th EPL appearance for the Gunners this season and his first for two months.

"Sunderland fought and you want that in the Premier League, that is what you want from every team". "On the other hand it was a good mental test and we responded in a strong way".

A win over Everton will be enough to secure Champions League football if Liverpool lose to Middlesbrough on Sunday, while a draw could still do the trick for Arsene Wenger's side.

Wenger points out that Arsenal has more points this season (72) than it did when the Gunners finished second in the Premier League past year (71).

According to several reliable sources, it is the famous designer, Giles Deacon, who drew the dress of Pippa Middleton . Instead, it is likely Kate will be appointed her matron of honour - a role for which she does qualify.

"Playing in the Champions League", he said when asked to choose between the two. "It is very important for Arsenal to be with the best teams in Europe".

The 67-year-old has still yet to announce whether he will sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium to stay beyond the end of the current campaign.

But he conceded the uncertainty over the manager's future at the club is hanging over the squad. "We have 69 points, we can get to 75".

Arsenal made an encouraging start and Sanchez thought he had opened the scoring in the ninth minute with a powerful shot from outside the area that took a deflection off Olivier Giroud's arm, only for referee Roger East to rightly disallow the goal.

While that could be implied as taking as swipe at Slaven Bilic and his West Ham players, Wenger went on to say that Arsenal would have only themselves to blame if they failed.

"We do our job and we have shown that again tonight", he told Standard Sport.
