Robert Sanchez says the season peaked with the 3-2 win over champions Manchester City on Tuesday.

Having been 2-0 down, Albion fought back against ten-man City to snatch all three points in front of 7,495 supporters at the Amex, with Albion’s Spanish stopper pulling off a couple of fine saves when the game was in the balance.

“With the fans back and three points against the champions at the last home game of the season, there’s nothing better,” Sanchez said. “I am delighted and in the changing room after the game it was amazing. It was an unreal night.

“Everyone is super happy with the result, and we’re going to Arsenal on Sunday with the mindset to get three points and finish off the season as well as we can.”

Albion’s attentions now turn to the trip to the Emirates with the focus on securing at least a point to beat their Premier League record points tally (41) set last season.

“Arsenal is a hard game to finish with, but we’re going there with a lot of energy and with nothing to lose. We want to have fun in the last game and beat our record points tally, which was the goal throughout the season. A clean sheet would be good too.

“We’re happy to have Lewis [Dunk] back for us and everyone knows how important a player he is, so that will be a big boost.”
