Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says his side failed to produce a moment of magic against Sunderland on Wednesday night.
After losing to Swansea City last week, the Gunners again failed to score at the Emirates as they were frustrated by Sunderland's resilience in defence.
But the Frenchman is already looking forward to Arsenal's last game of the season against West Bromwich Albion.
"You can say that we dominated possession and we lacked a bit of sharpness in our movement, in the way we prepared our chances and in our finishing as well," Wenger said.
"Physically it was an intense game on Sunday from what we have analysed and we were a bit jaded tonight. We haven't scored in the last three games at home and the fact that we couldn't score played a big part in our spontaneous attitude when finishing.
"We played with three strikers. Two wingers and one centre forward. We had the full backs going forward.
"Sebastian Coates especially and John O'Shea defended our crosses very well. We didn't look like scoring, even if we had 28 shots on goal.
"There was something missing always and you could see that they would throw their body in every time. We needed something special to score tonight because they defended very well.
"Have I got any nerves about finishing third? No. We want to win our game on Sunday, that's all.
"We want to prepare to win the game on Sunday. You could see that some players are a bit [tired]. We played our 56th game of the season tonight and some players have given a lot.
"We still have time to recover for Sunday and prepare well for the FA Cup final. What is important now is that we win on Sunday."
