Wenger gives little away as Arsenal faces top-4 exclusion

The Blues boss wants his side to focus on their remaining matches including the FA Cup final

The Blues boss wants his side to focus on their remaining matches including the FA Cup final

Arsene Wenger has revealed his future will be resolved at an Arsenal board meeting after the FA Cup final.

After challenging for the Premier League title last year, the north London side have seen their fortunes take an bad plunge, leaving them in fifth place on the Premier League table one year one, with slim hopes of creeping into the top four on the very last day of the season.

Arsenal head into the make-or-break fixture against Everton knowing that even a victory over Toffees might not be enough to guarantee Gunners a top-four finish.

"The most important thing is to win the football game".

If they fail to secure their 22nd league win of the season, they must rely on Arsenal dropping points against seventh-placed Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

If Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is troubled about his future, he's not showing it.

Arsenal has been playing well lately, winning four straight league games, but its rebound may have come too late.

"We have to do our job, we are professionals. And they behave like they want to be at the club", Wenger said.

Speaking ahead of the home game against Crystal Palace on Sunday, United manager Jose Mourinho said he will be protecting his top players to keep them fresh for the Europa League final against Ajax on Wednesday.

Sanchez's second on the night was also his 24th in the league and he is just one behind Romelu Lukaku in the goalscoring charts now.

The Belgium global has 24 Premier League goals this season and was poised for a final-day showdown with Sanchez for the golden boot before Tottenham's Harry Kane stole a march with his four-goal haul versus Leicester City on Thursday.

"Sometimes the frustration more than anything is about the fact we could be challenging for the Premier League title". I thought we passed the ball well when we got it, and the players played like they have played for eight or nine weeks.

Liverpool have finished outside the top four in six of the last eight seasons.

Arsenal are expected to make a strong start to the match, but the enthusiasm could go down if they receive bad news from Anfield, which is why it would be a good idea to bet on anything related to the first half.

Despite going the last four games without a goal, the Belgian has enjoyed the best season of his career.

The Belgium forward has refused to commit to a new long-term contract and has made clear his desire to play in the Champions League, something Everton can not offer.
