Wins for Arsenal and Manchester City ensure final-day tension

Arsenal are sweating over the fitness of defender Laurent Koscielny, who missed the midweek victory over Sunderland with a calf problem, while he is also struggling with an ongoing Achilles complaint.

I think Ronald Koeman is a top manager.

"Inside the club, people see the development which is very positive".

For Arsenal to avoid missing out on the Champions League for the first time in 20 years, they must beat Everton at home on Sunday, while hoping for a slip from either Liverpool or City.

The Gunners boss has come in for stinging condemnation from a host of his ex-players following a poor season and has yet to publicly announce if he will remain at the helm beyond next month.

Arsenal needs to draw 1-1 with Everton and Liverpool loses 2-0 to Middlesbrough with the teams finishing with the same number of points, same goal difference and equal number of goals scored. That obviously gives us extra motivation going into this game because it's either them or Liverpool who will secure fourth place.

"We've got in on the final day many times", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told BBC Sport. It doesn't matter about chances. "We have to go there and win the game". "We go to Watford to win the game".

Brazil's president denies authorizing payments to silence politician
Temer, that broke this story - a sign that he has lost their protection, which could complicate his efforts to see out his term. "President Michel Temer has never requested payments to obtain the silence of former MP Eduardo Cunha", it said.

"It's a crucial game for us".

Wenger said at his Friday morning press conference that former players did not have a "divine right" to return to the club in coaching roles, which should be awarded on merit.

Thoughts on the Champions League play-off?

Wenger said; "Chamberlain is not back and we have uncertainty over Koscielny".

"We had him here to work for a while with the youth team", Wenger explained. "I know I can deal with the pressure".

If United win the Europa League they will claim a place in the Champions League, giving Mourinho the last laugh while his old rival Wenger faces a troubled future.

This is because of Liverpool's absence from several European competitions over the last five seasons.

China's 1st large homemade passenger jet taking to the skies
It took Comac seven years to get its first aircraft, the regional ARJ-21 jet, into production after its debut flight in 2008. But it will take years to reach that destination, and the aircraft maker is likely to focus first on domestic customers.

The Gunners are the outsiders in fifth, two points behind City and one behind Liverpool.

In a game pitting top against bottom, the Premier League's finest against its most dismal, Sunderland will be looking to regain some level of respect as they bow out after nine consecutive seasons in the top tier.

The prize for winning the league is £38m, but even bottom club Sunderland will still be paid nearly £2m just for taking part.

Defoe has scored 15 of Sunderland's 28 Premier League goals this season.

Though Ronald Koeman's men will not be keen to do Liverpool a favour, the Dutchman will still want the Toffees to pick up the maximum amount of points possible.

After scoring four against Leicester, Kane will be out to add to his 26 league goals and make it impossible for Lukaku to deny him top-scorer honours.

With Arsenal in the FA Cup final this season, the club has a real chance of ending the season with silverware, and Sanchez says it would be a "positive" for the club.
