Arsenal maintain top-four hunt with impressive Stoke City victory

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has warned Chelsea that it will be tougher for them next season, after they emerged Premier League champions last Friday.

With Arsene Wenger's men hot on the heels of Liverpool in their pursuit of a top four finish, a win at Stoke was imperative to keep alive their hopes of returning to the Champions League next season.

Nevertheless, Arsenal should have enough quality and depth to secure another win against already-relegated Sunderland as they hope to continue to pile the pressure on Liverpool and Manchester City heading into the final day of the season at the weekend.

The Gunners are looking unlikely to finish in the top four, even if they manage to take maximum points from their two remaining games.

"I don't want to judge that", he said when asked specifically about West Ham's performance. "Some teams turn up, some go on holiday", he said. You do not want to watch any more of the same old, same old.

However the Black Cats haven't won at Arsenal since a 2002 League Cup victory at Highbury, with their last league win coming all the way back in 1983. If you are in any doubt, look at our season and compare that to Chelsea, Juventus and Atlético Madrid.

Hector Bellerin thought Arsenal showed they have "a lot of heart and character" during Saturday's 4-1 win at Stoke.

"We let ourselves down really".

Guardiola added: "West Brom are professionals, they're going to play to win the game". We have 69 points, so we can get to 75.

"We had a hard week playing Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday. That will be four points more than past year, so let's focus on finishing as well as we can.we had a hard period and we recovered from it".

Arsenal won this game at a stroll apart from a frantic few minutes in the second half and are desperately trying to claw their way into the top four. "Do it better during the season and you will not have this problem".

There were also more calls for the manager to leave, with a plane flying over the ground displaying a banner that read "WENGER - OUT MEANS OUT!"
