Sanchez Bags Brace As Gunners Shoot Down Stalwart Sunderland

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on the club's fans to ignore the boycott planned for their game against Sunderland on Tuesday.

Arsenal kept alive their hopes of finishing in the top four for a 20th consecutive year after two goals from Alexis Sanchez gave them a 2-0 win over Sunderland.

Arsenal beat Stoke 4-1 away on Saturday, however the Gunners could only watch on as Liverpool beat West Ham 4-0 on Sunday to virtually cement their spot in the top four.

Arsenal shareholder Morgan has always been calling for Wenger to leave Arsenal and has not been afraid to make his views heard on social media in recent seasons.

The Chilean then bundled in a second from Olivier Giroud's cut-back to take his league tally for the season to 23 - just one goal behind the league's leading scorer Romelu Lukaku. "I think the only chance we have now to be in the top four is to win all of our games". The "Sunderland" very serious problems with the performance and the "Arsenal" in the last home games just surprised reliable in defense. "By doing this, we can send a message to Stan Kroenke (Arsenal's US-based owner) and Arsene Wenger that Arsenal should be doing so much better". You do not want to watch any more of the same old same old.

Pickford's efforts were admirable, but the ever persistent Alexis Sanchez scored in the 72nd minute and in the 81st minute.

Sanchez's two goals, his 22nd and 23rd in the Premier League this season, vindicated Wenger's decision, and the Arsenal manager was delighted with how the evening went in the end. "We want to keep him with us because we know he is so important for our team".

Arsenal upped things slightly in the second half and they eventually made it count on 72 minutes.

"Sunderland fought and you want that in the Premier League, that is what you want from every team".

"We had a hard patch after the Bayern game because it was hard to recover".
