Arsenal players keen on Sanchez stay, says Koscielny

The race for the final two tickets to next season's Champions League will go to the wire after Arsenal retained its slim hopes of finishing in the Premier League's top four thanks to a late burst from Alexis Sanchez against Sunderland Tuesday.

Arsenal fans have viciously criticised the Frenchman after the club's form took another massive turn for the worse after the turn of the year - form that saw them plummet down the league standings.

"We set up to make it hard for Arsenal, and I thought, for long periods, we did that".

"We can talk and talk, but at the end let's make 75 points. After that you deal with what happens".

John Terry - Good Fit For Swansea or Past It?
Terry, 36, is set to bring the curtain down on his Blues career in the champions' final league game against Sunderland on Sunday. I don't know what his thinking is, whether he'll go on here in the Premier League or overseas , that's all unsure at the moment.


Nonetheless, Arsene Wenger's side kept their Champions League dreams intact going into the last day of the Premier League season. As well as their points advantage over Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool also have a superior goal difference (+33 to +31).

' Past it manager' "We are calling on fans that feel the same way to boycott tomorrow evening's match against Sunderland", the statement said.

"The first time was after we had won the title in 1991".

Adams, who has a statue outside the Emirates Stadium, reckons he is too big a character for Wenger and that counted against him. 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 had a few chances early on through Didier Ndong and Jermain Defoe and looked like they could threaten Petr Cech's goal but as the game wore on, Arsenal slowly wrested complete control of the match.

Arsene Wenger has been urged by some ex-stars and supporters to prioritise keeping top scorer Sanchez over midfielder Ozil, who is often criticised for his languid style. Los Blancos are also in the final of the Champions League and securing their third European crown could see Benzema seek a new challenge. Sanchez scored both goals as Arsenal claimed the three points but it was not without controversy.

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

It was an important victory for the Gunners who will have to wait until the weekend to learn which European competition they will be playing their football in.
