Premier League: What's left to be decided this season?
They are a point ahead of Arsenal and if they match the Gunners' result on the final day, they will also be playing Champions League football next season.
"We've got in on the final day many times".
"What is most important for me is to do the job well and finish the season as strongly as we can", he said. Sunderland have just the one win in 12 games but they may be able to spring a surprise here if they catch Chelsea celebrating a little too early.
Arsenal's veteran keeper Petr Cech wants his side and his team's supporters to focus only on the Gunners winning against Everton at the weekend.
Arsenal are in real danger of missing out on qualifying for the Champions League for the first time under Wenger.
If Liverpool manage to "secure" fourth place in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, Jurgen Klopp's side will face a hard Champions League qualifier if they are to progress in the competition. That will be four points more than previous year, so let's focus on finishing as well as we can.

But their goal difference and goals scored are similar enough to raise the realistic prospect of two teams finishing joint third or fourth with identical records - necessitating a one-off play-off match.
The fourth-placed team could also lose its UCL spot to Manchester United if it beats Ajax in the Europa League final on Friday morning (AEST).
If Arsenal do miss out on the Champions League, Wenger has already pin-pointed the cause; a series of damaging away defeats.
Arsenal will not have that advantage next season and, as United have discovered during this campaign, a 15-game slog to the final takes a heavy toll on form and fitness, with league results suffering as a effect.
Boss Ronald Koeman has no new injury concerns heading into the match, although the contest could mark Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley's final appearances for the club, as both players have been liked with summer transfers.
