The home side were unable to build on goals early in each half from Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne as Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez cancelled out both.

Arsenal, who remain in third after the result, are not yet certain of Champions League football, but the point makes it highly unlikely they will miss out.

For Arsenal to miss out Manchester United would have to win their two remaining games and City beat Swansea while the Gunners lose to relegated Aston Villa.

The Gunners are on course to qualify for the competition for a 20th consecutive year, but Wenger is still calling for focus in the remaining game.

“It is in our hands and we just want to finish the job. We have to keep the focus,” Wenger said. “We have had a strong concentration in recent games. Our character has been questioned a few times this season and we have given the right response on the pitch.”
