Arsene Wenger urges Arsenal fans not to boycott Sunderland game

Arsenal need one of their rivals to slip up to have a shot at Champions League qualification, but Wenger is pleased by the desire his team have showed in recent weeks, with the win at Stoke marking their third consecutive league victory.

The switches will nearly certainly necessitate a change of formation, with Sunderland set to start in a 5-4-1 formation.

Alexis Sanchez netted twice in the final 20 minutes to help Arsenal to a 2-0 Premier League win over Sunderland and keep their top-four hopes alive.

Subs: Ospina (gk), Gabriel, Elneny, Coquelin, Iwobi, Walcott, Welbeck.

Arsenal take on relegated Sunderland tonight in a game they must win if they are to gatecrash the top four.

Arsene Wenger has called on Arsenal fans to attend Tuesday's game against Sunderland rather than participate in a boycott aimed at removing him as manager.

Wenger's contract expires this summer, although a two-year deal is on the table for the Arsenal manager.

Looking back on a campaign that begun with Arsenal expected to challenge for the title, Wenger admitted away defeats at Everton and Manchester City were turning points.

Although Wenger is often derided for defending his record for finishing in the top four rather than consistently winning silverware, Koscielny admitted he would rather qualify for next season's Champions League than win the FA Cup. I think we have a good chance.

"So I don't know why suddenly it could become such a big problem". Arsene Wegner's men go into this game three points behind Manchester City. That will be four points more than previous year, so let's focus on finishing as well as we can.

'That's why last time I was injured but now it is OK with this.

Sunderland slowly grew into the game from there on and Didier Ndong and Jermain Defoe both got chances to break the deadlock late in the first half, goalkeeper Petr Cech pulling off two smart saves to keep things all square.

"They think they have something better to go to but people who have been watching might say, "No, you have not".
