Three more days of Premier League football left to play this season. Yikes. 

We bid you farewell until tomorrow...

'I’ll speak with the chairman over the next few days'

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Sunderland

Sunderland boss David Moyes speaking to BBC Sport: "We were full of character and commitment. We made it difficult for Arsenal for long periods and had good chances. We played well but Arsenal had the class to make the difference.

"Saturday's game against Sunderland was not like I'd seen in the last month or so. Tonight we got a good performance and if we got the first goal it could have been completely different.

"After I got in in August I didn’t think we had a squad capable. But it was what we've got, you have to try and ultimately we wre just short.

"I’ll speak with chairman Ellis Short over the next few days. I've given him an indication of what we need to do and we’ll look to see if that’s possible."

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Arsenal

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi: "We knew we had to win the game. We've been in a good run and wanted to keep that going. It was not easy.

"We had a lot of opportunities and made it harder than it was. We needed concentration.

On the empty seats in the Emirates: "As soon as you go in there it's not abut how many empty seats there are in the stadium. It was an important three points and that's all that counted.

"We know everything is possible and we have to go until the end."

Martin: There will also be a play-off if Man City lose by 0-4 and Arsenal win by 1-0. 

STOP THIS MADNESS!

Wenger in? Wenger out?

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Arsenal

After being asked the obligatory question regarding his future: "At the moment let's focus. We have a big game again on Sunday and then an FA Cup final - let's sort that out first."

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Pablo Zabaleta is given a guard of honour as he walks off the pitch and the Etihad soon empties.

The star of the show during his presentation was definitely his little boy, Asier, who threw a strop throughout. 

"From the bottom of my heart, thank-you"

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Chris Bevan

BBC Sport at Etihad Stadium

Pablo Zabaleta has just been presented with a Manchester City season-card for life.

A hug and a kiss from his wife Christel (and a final failed attempt to get his son Asier to stop playing with his toy in the centre-circle and and do the same) and his speech ends with a simple tribute to the City supporters: "From the bottom of my heart, thank-you to the fans."

Then his team-mates get hold of him and give him the bumps.

Reading into Championship play-off final

Jaap Stam is going to Wembley! His Reading team have beaten Fulham 1-0 tonight to progress to the Championship play-off final.

Maths headache

We have a maths genius in the office tonight who's helping us out with the permutations for the Champions League places.

We've already spoken about a Liverpool-Arsenal play-off but...

If Manchester City draw their final game 3-3 at Watford, and Liverpool win 3-0 against Middlesbrough, then City and Liverpool would finish joint third with identical records: 76 points, 78 goals scored, 42 goals conceded.

Premier League rules state: "If at the end of the season either the league champions or the clubs to be relegated or the question of qualification for other competitions cannot be determined because two or more clubs are equal on points, goal difference and goals scored, the clubs concerned shall play off one or more deciding league matches on neutral grounds, the format, venue and timing of which shall be determined by the board."

So with third place earning a Champions League group stage and fourth place entering the play-off round, this would force a third/fourth place play-off.

Got it? Good.

Andy Brown:  Also if Liverpool were to win 3-0 and City draw 3-3 then would have to be a play off for 3rd and with it automatic group stage.

Abdul Said: So many mathematicians tonight, I hope this calculation continue during next week's GCSE exams, good for practice 

'It was a dream'

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Manchester City

Pablo Zabaleta on the pitch at the Etihad Stadium: "As a football player and as a football fan it was a dream to come to the Premier League.

"I said to my girlfriend, now my wife, let me go to Manchester, I will enjoy it, it will be only for three or four years, so I'll have to say sorry, it's been nine years.

"My favourite moments were when we beat Manchester United in the semi-final at Wembley and the first Premier League we won with Sergio Aguero's goal. The fans had waited so long and we did it in a City way."

Pablo's favourite moment? "Beating United"

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Chris Bevan

BBC Sport at Etihad Stadium

Emotional scenes at the Etihad Stadium as Pablo Zabaleta fights back the tears as he makes his farewell speech... then huge cheers as he says that his favourite moment was beating neighbours Manchester United in the semi-finals of the 2011 FA Cup.

'Time for Arsene to say goodbye'

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Mark Lawrenson

Former Liverpool defender on Football Focus

I think Arsene Wenger has been great for them but it's just time to say goodbye. 

But I think he will sign for another two years. 

'We've got in on the final day many times'

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Arsenal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger speaking to BBC Sport: "We had plenty of shots on goal but we needed to be patient. We were frustrated at half-time not to be leading.

"We made 71 points and were second. We now have 72 and want to go to 75. After that you deal with what happens. 

"We've got in on the final day many times. Sunderland fought and you want that in the Premier League - that’s what you want from every team.

"We had a difficult patch after the Bayern game because it was difficult to recover. On the other hand it was a good mental test and we responded in a strong way."

Zabaleta says goodbye to City

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Pablo Zabaleta is walking back on to the pitch to a huge reception from the Etihad.

He's got his young son with him who is bawling his eyes out. Not impressed by his dad's farewell at all.

There's also a guy in the stands whose bottom lip is out. Dry your eyes, mate.

As it stands

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom; Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Here's how the top of the table looks after tonight's results.

Arsenal are still in with a chance of a top four place but it's in the hands of Manchester City and Liverpool. 

However, there are permutations in which there could be a play-off for fourth spot - that could happen, for example, if Arsenal draw 1-1 with Everton and Liverpool lose 2-0 to Middlesbrough. 

Confused? Yep, us too.

'Was like Pep had never managed'

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Mark Lawrenson

Former Liverpool defender on Football Focus

I think it's been a tale of two halves this season for City. 

Started off well, we thought they would run away with the league. 

But change of formation, change of tactics, it was like Pep had never managed before. 

But then the penny dropped. 

Did someone say super play-off? More on that in a moment...

#bbcfootball

Charlie Wetton: Quite frankly, if Sanchez wants the stadium renamed after him and to rip down Henry and Bergkamp statues for him I would do it.  

Andrew Neill: If WBA's shocking form had started a week earlier Arsene would already be planning his CL quality signings for the summer.

Andy Brown: Anyone else want Arsenal to draw 1-1 and Liverpool to lose 2-0 on last day of season to force a super play off?  

FULL-TIME

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

It's all over! Manchester City's top four place remains in their own hands. 

Zabaleta for mayor?

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Mark Lawrenson

Former Liverpool defender at Etihad Stadium

Pity they voted for the mayor of Manchester the other week, Zabaleta may have got it!

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Guess who's got the man of the match award?

That man Pablo. He's only been on for 30 minutes!

'Liverpool will be fine'

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Sir Trevor Brooking

Former West Ham and England midfielder at Emirates Stadium

If Arsenal got five or six tonight it could have put pressure on Liverpool. 

But that sums up Arsenal's season. 

I think Liverpool will be fine. 

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

While trying to clear another dangerous attack from West Brom involving Hal Robson-Kanu, Nicolas Otamendi has clattered into the post and it looks like he's really hurt his arm.

The Manchester City defender is taken off for treatment, and it looks like he can continue. 

'Super finish'

Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Mark Lawrenson

Former Liverpool defender at Etihad Stadium

A lovely cross from the right. For once, West Brom committed players forward. Super finish. 

GOAL - Manchester City 3-1 West Brom

Hal Robson-Kanu (86 mins)

Where did that come from?

Hal Robson-Kanu slots in from close range after a really good cross from the right from Allan Nyom. 

A consolation for the Baggies, but a goal none the less.

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Ben Foster pulls out all the stops to deny Gabriel Jesus not once but twice. 

Man City looking for a fourth

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

We've spoken a lot about Manchester City/Champions League places tonight and not really discussed West Brom's appalling form in the last two months.

They haven't won since beating Arsenal on 18 March. Yet they still hang on to that eighth place...for now. 

They've only had one shot on target tonight.

#bbcfootball

Andrew Neil: Teams pay big money for strikers coz they win games on their own. I reckon Pickford won four of Sunderland's six wins this season.

James Corrigan: Give Sanchez WHATEVER he wants. We need him to stay.

Nick Powell: Tonight has just shown the importance of Sanchez and Ozil to Arsenal. 

'Sanchez is priceless'

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Sir Trevor Brooking

Former West Ham and England midfielder at Emirates Stadium

Sanchez is priceless, they must not let him go 

But it took a long time to get that first goal. If they got that after half hour then we would have probably had four or five.

What did Pep say?

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at the Etihad Stadium

After replacing skipper Vincent Kompany just then, Pep Guardiola shook hands with the Belgian, then had a long chat with him.

Guardiola was hiding his mouth in that secretive kind of way and Kompany seemed to be nodding in appreciation.

Looked very deep. Wonder what it was.

SUBSTITUTION

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Vincent Kompany comes off and John Stones comes on.

Kompany, who I believe may be the nicest man in football, has handed the captain's armband to Pablo Zabaleta.

The crowd loved that. Zabaleta loved that, and he's fighting back the tears. Totes emosh.

FULL-TIME

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Job done for Arsenal.

They will start the final day of the season a point behind Liverpool in third.

They're even applauding Zabaleta for just catching the ball to take a throw in. 

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Theo Walcott, who's on for Olivier Giroud, does a lovely pirouette in the box and grapples with Bryan Oviedo.

The Arsenal man appeals as if to say there's a foul, but the referee waves him away.

Januzaj will be frustrated

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Sir Trevor Brooking

Former West Ham and England midfielder at Emirates Stadium

Good run by Januzaj.

He will be very frustrated he hasn't done more up to now in his career. Really hasn't had the impact Sunderland would have hoped for. 

YELLOW CARD

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

An odd yellow card for Leroy Sane, who I think has been booked for simulation, even though he was caught on the shoulder by Darren Fletcher as he danced through the West Brom defence. 

Slightly harsh.

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Over at the Etihad, Ben Foster's just pulled off another save to deny Gabriel Jesus.

It's all about the keepers tonight.

GREAT SAVE!

Arsenal 2-0 Sunderland

Arrrgh - Jordan Pickford is brilliant! He's just tipped Shkodran Mustafi's effort on to the bar. 

Surely he's got to stay in the Prem next season?

Who else is going?

Manchester City 3-0 West Brom

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at the Etihad Stadium

We know Pablo Zabaleta is leaving Manchester City this summer but he might not be on his own.

Yaya Toure is out of contract, although he seems set to be offered a new one.

Less certain are the futures of goalkeeper Willy Caballero, full-back Gael Clichy and winger Jesus Navas, whose deals expire in the summer.

The latter two have gone out to warm up.
