Fernandinho sees improvement during 'tough' season for Man City

West Brom, who are usually sound on defence, found themselves trailing 0-2 just a half-hour into Tuesday's tie at the Etihad, conceding goals to Gabriel Jesus - in the 27th minute - and to Kevin de Bruyne, who scored just two minutes later.

Nevertheless, Sky's cameras will be at Anfield to broadcast the match live and, as pointed out by the Liverpool Echo, will create a little piece of Premier League history in the process.

Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez has been included; the Chilean has 10 assists and 21 Premier League goals in a season his side have struggled for form.

Arsenal must respect the Europa League next season and take the tournament seriously if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, goalkeeper Peter Cech has said.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Arsène Wenger or Paul Bracewell?

"I am prepared to miss Sunderland to be fit for the last two games of this season".

So unless we go goal insane while winning the last two games against Sunderland and Everton, I see Man City as being the team to catch.

The Gunners have their work cut out for them if they are to continue their Champions League qualification streak.

So it's a pretty big deal, which is why the race for the Champions League places has always been a competition in its own right.

"We are all in the same boat and the captain is Arsenal, we need to fight for this club and don't think about what is happening with the boss or the players".

After Tuesday's results, in which Manchester City beat West Brom 3-1 and Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-0, here are the remaining scenarios for all three clubs with a game to play in the 2016-17 campaign. They go into that match three points ahead of Arsenal, and two ahead of Liverpool.

When the Gunners look like they are back to their best, Mesut Ozil does as well.

We run through the permutations and what needs to happen for there to be a dramatic end-of-season playoff. A draw, and they would be overtaken by an Arsenal win.

N'Golo Kante, who has already won the 2016/17 PFA and FWA Player of the Season awards, is nominated alongside 2014/15 EPL Player of the Season Eden Hazard and Cesar Azpilicueta.
