Moment of truth for Arsenal and the Wenger era

Moment of truth for Arsenal and the Wenger era

Arsene Wenger has singled out Romelu Lukaku for special praise ahead of Arsenal's clash with Everton on Sunday afternoon. "That is when things will be finalised", said Wenger, whose contract expires at the end of this season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful for a positive result in FA cup final as arsenal board members are ready to access his season before announcing his future with Arsenal.

The Belgium global has 24 Premier League goals this season and was poised for a final-day showdown with Sanchez for the golden boot before Tottenham's Harry Kane stole a march with his four-goal haul versus Leicester City on Thursday.

A final day win at home may not be enough to secure Champions League football for next season.

If Liverpool beat relegated Middlesbrough at Anfield and City avoid defeat at struggling Watford, then, even if Arsenal win, Wenger's side will be consigned to the indignity of Thursday nights in the unglamourous Europa League next term. The fifth-placed club needs a draw, or more likely a win, against the Toffees and hope that either Manchester City or Liverpool slip up in the final round of the season. It doesn't matter about chances.

In the book, Adams also details why he may never work for Arsenal as long as Wenger is in charge.

"Of course we can need help to become better". They have not won away since late January and scored only once in their last four games.

"They don't behave like players who are disinterested in the future of the club". I don't have anything to say about that.

"The Champions League, for different reasons, is a wonderful competition. If we don't, we don't", the German said. Victory for Craig Shakespeare will give him the bragging rights over Eddie Howe as his side will finish 10th, one place ahead of the Cherries.

Kane, last year's Golden Boot victor, has 26 league goals while Lukaku has 24 and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has 23. Not bad for a player who has missed three months of the season through injury.

Chelsea invite Sunderland to join them for the Premier League party as they look to end the season in style before receiving the crown. However, it is highly unlikely to be a high-profile appointment and would not be a director of football.

Harry Kane's four-goal salvo as Tottenham thrashed Leicester 6-1 on Thursday night put the England striker in pole position to win the Golden Boot for the second successive season.
