Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Premier League
The Gunners must win and hope another result goes their way in order to keep their streak of qualifying for the Champions League going

Arsenal face the prospect of failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since the 1996-97 season as the Premier League enters its final weekend.

Arsene Wenger has secured a place at European football's top table in each of his 19 full seasons in charge in north London, but the Gunners find themselves outside the top four ahead of their 38th match of the 2016-17 campaign against Everton.

Leaving Arsenal was best - Szczesny

Arsenal must win to have any chance of pipping Manchester City to a qualification spot and though they could rise above Liverpool with a draw, it is incredibly unlikely.

Position Everton players
Goalkeepers Robles, Hewelt
Defenders Baines, Jagielka, Williams, Holgate, Kenny, Pennington
Midfielders Mirallas, Besic, Barry, Barkley, Gueye, Davies, Schneiderlin
Forwards Kone, Lukaku, Bolasie, Valencia

Everton have a long injury list and will be without Yannick Bolasie, Ramiro Funes Mori, James McCarthy, Maarten Stekelenburg, Seamus Coleman and Aaron Lennon against Arsenal, while Ademola Lookman and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are at the Under-20 World Cup.

Potential starting XI: Robles; Holgate, Jagielka, Williams, Baines; Gueye, Schneiderlin, Davies; Barkley, Lukaku, Mirallas.


Arsenal are 4/9 favourites to win at home, according to Oddschecker, with Everton priced at 15/2 and the draw available at 9/2.

Alexis knows his time at Arsenal is up

Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud are the 7/2 favourites to score first, with Romelu Lukaku the top choice for the visitors at 7/1.


The potential scenarios for Arsenal are fairly straightforward.

If they win against Everton on Sunday and Liverpool fail to beat Middlesbrough, they will qualify for the Champions League at the Reds' expense.

If Arsenal and Liverpool both win but Manchester City lose, the Gunners will need a five-goal swing in the goal difference column to overtake Pep Guardiola's men.

If Arsenal draw, they must hope Liverpool lose at home to relegated Boro to have any chance of rising into the top four - and they would also need to gain at least two goals in the goal difference column.

In reality it is win or bust for Arsenal, but given the standard of opposition their rivals face - City are away at a Watford side that may not have a fit senior centre-back available - the damage may already be done.

Whatever happens, whereas Liverpool and City will continue to build under popular managers, the Gunners are set for a turbulent few months ahead as Arsene Wenger's future and their summer transfer plans are decided.
