The Chilean scored both goals, his 22nd and 23rd in the Premier League this season, in the second half to secure an unconvincing victory that keeps Arsenal in the hunt for Champions League qualification going into the final day of the season.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech insists ending up in next season's Europa League would not be the end of the world for the Gunners.

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger talks to Alexis Sanchez during a break in the play during the English Premier League match between Arsenal and Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium in London, Tuesday.

Arsenal's 2-0 win meant that Manchester City, 3-1 winners at home against West Bromwich Albion, will still need a point to be absolutely certain of finishing in the top four.

Mesut Ozil was pulling the strings in midfield for the Gunners, but with Sunderland's young keeper Jordan Pickford in inspired form, the teams went into the dressing rooms at the interval scoreless.

"I thought the team showed great character, we set up to try and make it difficult for Arsenal and for long periods we did do but not only that but we created opportunities and the players worked really hard", Moyes said.

'Especially at Everton, we were really unlucky at Everton, some of the decisions were really bad on the night and after we had to go straight to Man City and it didn't help.

"With him, you know, I feel he had something still [to give]".

Gabriel de Jesus, Kevin de Bruyne and Yaya Toure scored City's goals as they moved two points above Liverpool in third.

"We had plenty of shots on goal but we needed to be patient". You want all the teams to fight like Sunderland did tonight.

Thousands of empty seats greeted the players as the game got under way, many staying away as part of a boycott organised in protest against Wenger signing a new deal and remaining in charge beyond the FA Cup final meeting with Chelsea.

"We had a hard patch after the Bayern game because it was hard to recover". We were frustrated at half time not to be leading.
