"What is for sure, if we win our game, we can only be far from one point".
The Gunners kept their hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League alive on Tuesday.
So what it boils down to on Sunday afternoon is really quite simple: Arsenal must beat Everton at the Emirates and hope that Liverpool fail to beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield.
Not only did Arsenal have 36 attempts on goal against Sunderland, the most efforts they've had in a Premier League match in 14 years, but Ozil also created the most goal scoring opportunities in a single game since Opta records began.
The Gunners still need either Manchester City or Liverpool to falter on the final day if they are to qualify for next season's Champions League but thanks to Sanchez they have at least taken the battle to the very last.
Asked about the poor attendance at the Emirates, Wenger said he "didn't count the number of people who were in the seats" and nor is he counting out Arsenal's chances of finishing in the top four come Sunday evening.
If Arsenal do miss out on the Champions League, Wenger has already pin-pointed the cause - a series of damaging away defeats. Let's see what will happen'.
"You want every team to fight like Sunderland did tonight, and after you have to accept the result".
ARSENE WENGER says finishing in the top four is "nothing special" and admits he is baffled that Arsenal fans think it is so important. "I'd hate anyone questioning whether we would chuck a game", he said.
"If you look at the number of points we can make, it's one of the best in the last 10 years".
