"We've got in on the final day many times".
Wenger has yet to confirm if he will remain in charge next season, but despite his team's predicament, he opted to take a swipe at the critics who have ridiculed his pride in leading Arsenal into the Champions League for the last 19 years.
Yet there remains intrigue to be had.
Liverpool have struggled against the lower sides all season, and it would be all too familiar if they fail to grab all three points. Whether the playoff is for the third spot or the fourth depends on how Liverpool fares against Middlesbrough. While three wins from the three teams would leave the table as it is, there are many permutations that could potentially see a play-off for a place in the Champions League.
If Liverpool lose and Arsenal draw, then Liverpool are guaranteed to be fourth unless they lose by more than one goal.
SEAD KOLASINAC has reportedly signed for Arsenal - here's how they could line up with him next season.
West Brom held out for 27 minutes at City but Gabriel and De Bruyne made it 2-0 with two goals in three minutes.
While Man City and Liverpool are heavy favourites to enter the competition via an automatic and playoff qualifying spot respectively - Arsenal are hanging on by their fingernails to the hope that one or both of them will have a cataclysmic slip-up this Sunday at 3pm.
Severe weather outbreak predicted in Oklahoma, Kansas
The Tulsa metro now resides in the enhanced region and may experience severe weather later this evening into pre-dawn Friday . Smith says another round of severe storms is forecast Thursday and Friday , with more tornadoes possible.
Now it gets really interesting.
Here is how each potential result could play out for Liverpool and effect their season.
The small matter of Champions League qualification.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to feature in the latter of those two games but will likely not be risked on Sunday with Hector Bellerin an able deputy.
Although it remains unlikely at this point, there is, in fact, a scoreline that would mean this weekend wouldn't matter in the race for Champions League. Fourth if City win or draw while Liverpool don't overturn +3 goal difference or Liverpool win by +3 goal difference and City draw 4-4 or higher.
Knowing that they needed to win, Arsenal peppered the Sunderland goal, notching up 36 efforts, of which 13 were on target.
Now, Liverpool's leaky defence is as much a reason as Mane's for their faltered title challenge, but it is hard to believe they would not be closer to champions Chelsea without the loss of one of the key cogs in their line-up. A few moments in life are not really fair and for us, having 70 points - I think previous year, second place was 71 points or something.
A 4-0 defeat for Pep Guardiola's men, coupled with Arsenal defeating Everton 1-0, would see both teams end on 75 points with 75 goals scored and 43 conceded.
