Wenger tells fans to reject call to boycott Sunderland game

Wenger tells fans to reject call to boycott Sunderland game

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger talks to Alexis Sanchez during a break in the play during the English Premier League match between Arsenal and Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium in London, Tuesday.

Arsenal kept the pressure on Man City and Liverpool for the remaining Champions League spots with a 4-1 victory at Stoke.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are three points ahead of the Gunners after beating West Brom - and only need a draw at Watford to secure Champions League qualification.

"I don't even think about percentage, I just think about let's make sure we win the game, because we play against Everton".

"You will always have regrets because you could have one point more but you forget as well the games you won in the last season where you could the season after not win".

"I answer for 20 years the question, is top four nothing special".

For example, speaking at Arsenal's Annual General Meeting in 2012, Wenger said: "For me, there are five trophies. You want all the teams to fight like Sunderland did tonight and, after, you have to accept the result".

The Gunners dominated for large periods of the game, but struggled to get past the outstanding Jordan Pickford in the Sunderland goal.

"The first is to win the Premier League, the second is to win the Champions League, third is to qualify for the Champions League, fourth is the FA Cup and the fifth the League Cup. If we win we know the most we will be behind is one point, so let's see what happens".

"I know people get the hump with Ozil and he is not a runner-arounder, but the lad can play and he is a lot better than what they have got".

It has been a miserable season for David Moyes and the club, but the Scot could not fault his players' effort at the Emirates.

Arsenal's top-four bid would be over had Sanchez not grabbed a double in the last 18 minutes. Then I said, "I really believe we can do that, it would be great". "I am paid to do my job for the club I love and I will do that as long as I'm here with full commitment". I think what is encouraging is the way the ambition of the team is back.
