Arsenal need help from Middlesbrough or Watford as they bid to leapfrog Liverpool or Manchester City on the final day

Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal’s top-four rivals will be given stern examinations as the Gunners aim for a late surge into the UEFA Champions League qualification spots on the final day.

Arsenal lie fifth in the table as they prepare to host Everton and they are hoping for a favour from already-relegated Middlesbrough or Watford, who face fourth-placed Liverpool and third-placed Manchester City respectively.

“What you want is that they have a go and they fight,” Wenger told “I think, traditionally in England, you have that. Hopefully that will be the case.

“Everybody will be under scrutiny so you just want the teams like Everton to fight against us, Middlesbrough will fight against Liverpool, Watford will fight against City."
