Ian Wright states his prediction for Arsenal v Everton
What TV channel will Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City be on?
ARSENAL take on Everton at home on Sunday, but who will start the match?
The results: Manchester City 3 (Jesus 27, de Bruyne 29, Toure 57) bt West Bromwich Albion 1 (Robson-Kanu 87); Arsenal 2 (Sanchez 72, 81) bt Sunderland 0.
Mane was signed from Southampton last summer for £34 million (Dh162.6m) and despite not featuring for much of the campaign, still has to be a considered one of the signings of the season. The champion’s midweek win over Watford was their fifth in a row and there remains a seven-point gap at the top.
Ronald Koeman’s side registered their first goal, and win, in four matches by beating Watford last time out. Sunderland have just the one win in 12 games but they may be able to spring a surprise here if they catch Chelsea celebrating a little too early.
Spurs put six past Leicester in midweek to win their 25th game of the season.
It is because of this absence that Liverpool’s UEFA coefficient is weaker than almost a dozen teams who could potentially play in the Champions League playoffs. But when asked if this will be his final game at the Emirates, Wenger coyly replied: “Of the season, yes”. Everton are set in the Europa League but Romelu Lukaku needs to respond to Tottenham’s Harry Kane moving two clear in the Golden Boot race. If we finish the job well, it can be maximum one point short.
John Motson: “Arsenal have not allowed Manchester City or Liverpool to shake them off in the pursuit of a top-four finish but they know that even a seventh win in eight games might not be enough this time”. They are now 3rd following their midweek win at home to West Brom.
“We want to get in there, let’s give ourselves every chance”, he said. But then Uefa, which has concluded most of the territorial broadcasting deals for the Champions League’s next 2018-21 period, is projecting a very substantial increase itself, 49% more than the current €1.345bn, to €2.016bn a season. That could be all about to change as they enter Sunday’s finale against Everton. If they can get their first home league win in four games then they will finish no lower than 4th, however, relegated Middlesbrough may prove hard to break down.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on his side’s prospects of a top-four finish: “I am not a betting man”.
Daniel Sturridge will lead Liverpool to Champions League, Arsenal will end in good form and look for Crystal Palace to triumph at Old Trafford.
With a number of the club’s senior players saying the match will be “like a cup final”, Klopp has instead tried to take the heat out of the occasion by instructing his players to simply keep their concentration and play to their strengths.
Arsenal are keen to move towards a position that they hope will ensure the transition towards Wenger’s successor is made easier by altering the club’s structure to ensure their manager does not have such potent influence in all areas of the club.
Here are five key players to watch ahead of the season-ending hosting of Everton.
