Win more games yourself - Guardiola tells Wenger to stop complaining

"He (Wenger) plays against Everton and Sunderland, no?"

Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal will be made to pay for their inconsistency if they fail to finish in the top four.

"I don't know how it happened, but game after game we didn't lose, and we won the championship with five games to go".

Arsenal have finished in the top four every season since the Frenchman took charge 21 years ago but following Liverpool's 4-0 thumping of West Ham on Sunday, they now rely on other results to maintain that proud record. "Do it better during the season and you will not have this problem".

So their players will either lay a collective egg, or they'll be auditioning for other Premier League sides to pick them up before they make the drop.

"Ask Arsene, not me", he said. If we don't have the results I'm not happy, but what is not excusable is not to do your best. "When you are a manager you want your team to give everything until the last moment".

"To not be in the Champions League next season would be a very disappointing situation for us, but we will fight until the end to have as much of a chance to be there next season", Koscielny told Sky Sports.

"We are a victim of nobody".

The Gunners had won the Premier League and FA Cup double in 2001/02 but were pipped to the league title by Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in 2002/03 - although, they did retain their FA Cup. The "Sunderland" very serious problems with the performance and the "Arsenal" in the last home games just surprised reliable in defense.

In general, Arsenal have looked far stronger since moving to three at the back, winning six of their last seven games in the increasingly fashionable formation.

Champions League qualification would be decided by a play-off at a neutral venue if a combination of the three teams finish level on points with the same goal difference and goals scored.

"It is a hard situation - we don't know what happens with the boss", he said.

Jordan Pickford: Sunderland's young goalkeeper and player of the season is likely to be a busy man at the Emirates.
