Adams' comments 'sad' - Arsenal's Wenger

20 May 2017, 03:47 | Charlene Valdez

The three-year cycles for Champions League TV deals overlap with the Premier League's; next season will be the final one of Uefa's 2015-18 deals before the 2018-21 arrangements, which are being concluded now, begin.

Arsenal's midweek win over Sunderland kept them in the Champions League picture, meaning they can displace Liverpool or possibly Manchester City with a win.

However, in an extremely unlikely situation, Liverpool may have to play Arsenal or Manchester City in a playoff.

Alexis Sanchez could still finish as the Premier League's top goal-scorer after netting 23 times in 37 appearances in the 2016-17 campaign.

Arsenal vs Everton at the Emirates. We can talk and talk, at the end let's make 75 points.

Being able to offer Champions League football to transfer targets is hugely important with several of the Reds' targets looking to compete on Europe's biggest stage next season.

Old Trafford may also witness a farewell with British media speculating that Wayne Rooney could sign off after 13 years, 556 appearances and a record 253 goals for Manchester United, who play Crystal Palace.

Wenger has confirmed that a final decision on his future at Arsenal will not be made before next weekend's FA Cup final against Chelsea, but he appeared to be relaxed about the planned changes in the club structure when he spoke to the media on Friday.


The scenario for Arsenal is more complicated, as they must not only win their match against Everton but also hope for Liverpool to lose or draw.

But the Arsenal boss hit back suggesting Adams, who has just seen Granada relegated after he took charge late on in the season, is just bitter at not landing a coaching role at the club.

"They've still got an outside chance of making the cut, of course".

It has been a superb effort by the Belgian, considering he plays for a side outside of the top-six, and Everton will do very well to keep hold of him this summer and beyond. "I'd hate anyone questioning whether we would chuck a game", Moyes said.

City will finish third if they prevail over Watford next Sunday in the EPL season's final match.

Meanwhile, Sunderland manager David Moyes took umbrage at Wenger's suggestion this week that Arsenal's top four rivals benefited from playing teams with their minds on their holidays. They've won eight of 10 games played on Merseyside on the final day and averaged 2.7 goals a game during that sequence.

They have earned four successive league victories at the Emirates Stadium, keeping clean sheets in all of them.
