Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on BBC Sport: "It is an important point. We are frustrated because we couldn't score. Sunderland are jubilant and they played like a team that wanted to be safe.

"We nearly lost the game because we were so focused on winning. We were not sharp enough, not quick enough. We are physically less fresh. We played about 58 games and you can see that."

'A Houdini act'

Sunderland are safe

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat on BBC Sport: "I am really proud of the group. The group has come so far, they have given everything. Organisation wise it was brilliant. I had a tear in my eye, I have to be honest.

"Second half we had three or four 100% chances. Until the end it was a nervous breakdown. The most important thing is the players start believing, the good thing is I do things in the past and they know that and know I don't talk nonsense.

When asked if he had been invited to stay at Sunderland next season he said; "Yes, I think so. But there is no answer yet.

"Sam Allardyce said something about a Houdini act but this was the Houdini act."

Sunderland are safe

"We gave a lot on Sunday to come back and you could see that the legs were not completely there tonight. At least we didn't concede and we got an important point.

"We have some time to prepare and recover for the FA Cup final and I think we will do that.

"Jack Wilshere gave a lot, he did alright. He had some good movement. But we are all frustrated because we didn't score."

Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland

Michael Juwon: Arsenal simply lacks the creativity and final touch to break down resolute defence. They always complain of team bus-parking.

Mark Taylor: I am sick of so-called Arsenal fans who slag Arsene Wenger and team off if they don't win every game after five minutes. Should be ashamed.

Viv: The longer Arsenal continues to field average/inconsistent strikers, the longer their wait for the PL title.

Sunderland are safe

Sunderland have alternated between defeats and 0-0 draws on their eight visits to the Emirates Stadium.

Manager reaction

Sunderland are safe

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat on Sky Sports: "Arsenal had the possession but you know if you keep trying you get your chances. In the second half we had chances and we had to score.

Dick Advocaat

The emotions of a man ready to walk away?

"Arsenal were the better side but the organisation was unbelievably good. The emotion was so high. We only lost one in the last six and that is why they deserve to stay in.

"Our defence was great. An unbelievable feeling we did it by ourselves. The players gave everything to stay up. It is a beautiful stadium, facilities are great, but last couple of years not always lucky with things we have done. The players started believing.

"I will give an answer next week on my future."
