Preview: Will this be Arsene Wenger's final league game in charge?

21 May 2017, 12:30

Arsenal are relying on other results to make the top four as they host Everton in what ‘could be’ Arsene Wenger's last league game in charge.

The Gunners are currently in fifth position in the Premier League, one point behind Liverpool in fourth.

Arsenal need to win and hope Liverpool drop points or that Man City lose (while overhauling City's superior goal difference in the process). Arsenal can also make the top four if they draw and Liverpool lose (while overhauling Liverpool's superior goal difference).

Wenger, whose contract expires in the summer, could be on the verge of finishing outside the top four for the first time in his 20-year tenure at The Emirates.

Predictably, Arsenal have finished the season strongly, winning their last four Premier League games and they are unbeaten in their last 11 final day fixtures (won nine), winning each of the last five.

Meanwhile, visitors Everton, who are set for seventh-place finish in Ronald Koeman's first season in charge, are on a run of seven games without a win away from home.

All the stats you need to know courtesy of Opta...

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 20 Premier League home games against Everton (W16 D4); their longest ever unbeaten streak against a side in the competition.

Indeed, this run started when Wenger became manager in 1996, beating all five Everton managers he has faced in that time.

After beating the Gunners in their Home fixture this season; the Toffees are looking to do the league double over Arsenal for the first time since the 1985-86 season.

If Lukaku does end the season as the Premier League's top scorer, he'll be the first Belgian to win the Premier League Golden Boot and the first player to win it from a club outside the top four since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink for Chelsea in 2000/01.

Alexis Sanchez has 23 Premier League goals this season and is in the race for the Golden Boot. The last Chilean player to finish as top goalscorer in one of the big five European leagues was Iván Zamorano in La Liga for Real Madrid in 1994-95 (28 goals).
