Premier League play-off possibility for final Champions League place

Three Chelsea stars have been nominated for the Premier League player of the season award, report ESPN.

"We've got in on the final day many times", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told BBC Sport.

"I think they just want to play and show they have the quality to play in the Premier League so I think it will be a hard game but we need to dictate our game, to have the possession, to play with more movement like we played this week and to have the best result for us". "After that you deal with what happens". They can guarantee a berth in next season's Champions League qualifying rounds by beating Middlesbrough at Anfield.

The trio has been fantastic for Tottenham this season which saw them finish second, their highest league finish in their history.

"It was a good night and it's in our hands to finish third", said manager Pep Guardiola.

"Thank you to the fans, to everyone. because they made me a better player and a better person and it was a big pleasure to play for the shirt".

After the game he was honoured in an on-pitch presentation when, among other tributes, he was given a lifetime City season ticket.

But rock-bottom Sunderland twice threatened on the counter-attack, with Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech obliged to save from Didier Ndong and Jermain Defoe. Lukaku has 24 goals, Kane 22 and Sanchez 21.

After Pickford had thwarted Sanchez, Xhaka and Alex Iwobi, Sanchez made sure of the points in the 81st minute, heading in after Pickford had blocked Olivier Giroud's volley.

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

In such form and with a healthy goal difference in their favour, City should be confident of completing the job.

Sergio Aguero was instrumental in all three goals.

The Baggies caved in again two minutes later, with De Bruyne the goalscorer this time, firing in past the diving Ben Foster from the edge of the box.

Guardiola used the final half hour to offer Pablo Zabaleta a farewell appearance in City's colours.

The Premier League's final day is shaping up to be one with little on the line (unlike this unforgettable one five years ago).
