Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has warned Chelsea that it will be tougher for them next season, after they emerged Premier League champions last Friday.

"Arsenal" has won four of their last five home games, conceding to them only on "Manchester City".

If Liverpool defeat the relegated Middlesbrough on Sunday and City take four points from matches at home to West Bromwich and away to Watford it will be impossible for Arsenal to finish in the top four.

"When they scored the "hand-goal" they came back but when you go to places like Stoke you need at some stage to suffer and stick together and that's what we did".

"They play the way they want to play, so if teams of Tony Pulis want to play that way, perfect".

"When you say fans, who do you mean?" We have 69 points today - let's make it 72 on Tuesday [when Arsenal host Sunderland], and after that I will give my best as long as I am here for the values of this club. "You had basically two leagues, with the top six and everyone else", via the Mirror. "If we finish outside the top four, it will maybe be down to one point".

Arsenal have managed to lift themselves out of their recent slump to claim victory over Manchester United, Southampton and Stoke City.

It remains to be seen whether Sanchez will still be at Arsenal next season as he has just over a year remaining on his current contract at the club. "It was a big pressure game but the way we dealt with it was superb".

"We've got to focus on ourselves".

"We had a hard week playing Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday".

"So you don't want to complain, do it better during the season and you will not have this problem".

Arsenal recorded an impressive 4-1 win at Stoke but were always reliant on one of their rivals dropping points before the end of the season if they were to reel either of them in.

Wenger also confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not feature against Sunderland or Everton but revealed that the England midfielder has an 80% of recovering from his hamstring injury in time for the FA Cup final against Chelsea on 27 May.
