Arsenal take top-four race to final day with Sanchez double

Arsenal score the opener through Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal ensured the top-four race goes down to the final day of the Premier League season with a laboured win against already relegated Sunderland.

Alexis Sanchez tapped in Mesut Ozil's square pass to the relief of those inside a sparsely populated Emirates Stadium.

As Arsenal increased in urgency, Sanchez bundled in Olivier Giroud's cut-back to renew their hopes of a top-four finish for a 21st successive season.
