Arsène Wenger believes Arsenal still have a good chance of a top-four finish after watching his side claim a nervy two-nil home win over already relegated Sunderland on Tuesday night.
Alexis Sanchez scored both goals towards the end to take the Gunners within one point of a Champions League place.
However they need a favour from Middlesbrough, who visit Liverpool on the final day of the Premier League season, or Watford, who host Manchester City.
Wenger has demanded that those teams put in the same effort as Sunderland did at the Emirates, while tasking his side to close out the season with a win.
“I don’t think about the percentages,” the Frenchman said. “I just think: ‘Let’s make sure we win against Everton.’ Even if you have only a 1% chance, you would have to play totally at 100% but I think we have a good chance. You want all the teams to fight like Sunderland did tonight and, after, you have to accept the result.”
Arsenal return to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday to face Everton.
