POPE: SORRY ARSENE BUT WE NEED A RESULT.

Byline: LINDSAY SUTTON

BURNLEY keeper Nick Pope aims to be a party pooper at Arsene Wenger's home league farewell - but with the greatest of respect.

The 26-year-old England hopeful (right) admitted: "We may need another point to be absolutely sure of Europa League football next season, so we're going to the Emirates to get a result.

"We've pricked a lot of balloons already this season, and go to Arsenal to do the same - we may be unwanted guests at the party."

But Pope has great respect for the man who became Gunners boss 22 years ago - when the keeper was just four years old.

He added: "He created the Invincibles, he revolutionised the game. He's a great manager and ambassador for the game. It's a great occasion for him."
