Arsene Wenger hopes to see Arsenal's top-four rivals challenged on the final day after the Gunners beat Sunderland 2-0 to stay in the hunt.
Liverpool host already-relegated Middlesbrough on the final while City go to Watford and Arsenal are at home against Everton.
And Wenger told Sky Sports: "I still think City are in it, they go to Watford, which is a difficult place to go.
"What you want is for everybody to fight like Sunderland did tonight. Then you accept your result, that's it.
With empty seats around the Emirates, It looked like being a frustrating evening for Arsenal as Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford kept them at bay.
"Sanchez was maybe not completely 100 per cent tonight but he dug deep. I want to give credit also to the players who gave him the ball, Mesut [Ozil] and [Olivier] Giroud, and a good ball from [Granit] Xhaka to Ozil.
Asked about the number of fans who stayed away from the game, Wenger said: "We have to focus on our job, not looking at how many people are in the stands.
"When you play football you want to play ideally with a packed stadium, but we are quite spoilt with that overall. It's a Tuesday night maybe, people think Sunderland is an easy game, so there were less people."
