Sanchez breaks stubborn Sunderland for Arsenal

"It shows as well that if you look at his numbers, he has developed here as a player and has become a top-class player and has not wasted his time here".

Having battled through injury to provide Arsenal's decisive third in Saturday's 4-1 win, Sanchez was similarly influential on home soil with Wenger revealing he had still been carrying the after-effects of the injury throughout Tuesday evening.

Arsenal now face the prospect of missing out on the Champions League altogether and will lose their place if Liverpool beat Middlesbrough at Anfield on the final day of the season.

Arsene Wenger has blamed Arsenal's away record for their failure to match Chelsea in the Premier League title race.

Liverpool will be assured of a top-four spot if they equal or better Arsenal's result this weekend's set of fixtures.

It could have been even worse for the Gunners on a frustrating night at a sparsely-populated Emirates.

Arsenal were always dominant but spurned their opportunities before Sanchez turned in a Mesut Ozil cross from close range in the 72nd minute.

Arsenal's sixth win in their last seven games moved them within one point of fourth-placed Liverpool, but there was bad news from Eastlands where Manchester City beat West Bromwich Albion to retain their three-point lead over Wenger's team.

"We want to get in there, let's give ourselves every chance", he said.

But Wenger said it didn't affect his players either. We were frustrated at half time not to be leading.

Wenger was again asked about his future.

When pressed about whether he'll be staying on as manager, Wenger remained evasive: "At the moment let's focus".

"Firstly, he scored a lot of goals for us but his first job is not to be a striker, it is more midfield but he is an unbelievable player".

Arsenal attempted 36 total shots in Tuesday's contest at the Emirates, which is the most they've attempted in a Premier League match since the start of the 2003-04 campaign. West Brom had a consolatory goal in the 87th minute by Hal Robson-Kanu.
