The wins and the goals are piling up.

Aaron Ramsey, booed by some Stoke fans having come on for Sanchez, then made a lively contribution at the ground where he broke his leg in 2010.

The result means that should Liverpool fail to pick up maximum points at London Stadium, Arsenal will qualify for next season's Champions League by winning their final two home games against Sunderland and Everton.

The Gunners beat Stoke 4-1 on Saturday to move one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

Wenger's future remains uncertain, with the Frenchman still yet to announce whether he intends to stay on at the club beyond the current season.

"They have all my support".

"I didn't plan to take him off, he asked to come off", explained Wenger. We have 69 points, on Tuesday will look to make it 72.

That left Arsenal in fifth place in the Premier League, three points behind Manchester City in the slot directly above. We expect the teams to play with commitment'.

Substitute Crouch brought Stoke back into the game in the 67th minute when he used his forearm to propel Marko Arnautovic's left-wing cross past Petr Cech at the near post.

Arsene Wenger claims he knew Peter Crouch's goal should have been disallowed for handball because he was "suspicious of the noise of the ball".

David Silva's 29th-minute opener was awarded despite an apparent offside against Raheem Sterling, while Riyad Mahrez had an equalising penalty disallowed after he slipped and struck the ball twice.Gabriel Jesus doubled City's lead from the penalty spot, with Shinji Okazaki halving the deficit by hooking a stunning volley into the top-right corner.

Leicester was awarded a penalty in the 76th minute when Riyad Mahrez was fouled.

Sanchez subsequently came off, apparently with an injury that Arsenal will certainly hope is only minor.

Swansea's players paid for the tickets of the 3,000 away fans for the match, and the traveling contingent saw their team notch a third win in four games. In the two seasons prior he had scored 13 and 16 goals respectively.

Southampton strengthened its chances of securing a top-half finish with this win, secured by goals by Jay Rodriguez and Nathan Redmond either side of halftime. However, he insisted that his team have to be mentally prepared for their remaining three games of the season.
