Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was disappointed after his last game in charge of the club at home.
The Citizens could only manage a draw against Arsenal despite being in front twice in the game, a result that puts their Champions League hopes for next season in danger.
Their last game is away at Swansea City with Manchester United now strong favourites to finish fourth.
"I was disappointed not to win the game," Pellegrini said after the draw.
"Winning the game would have been a great way to say goodbye. I don't want to analyse my three years here until next Sunday but the best way to finish would have been three points here and we couldn't do that.
"We played with high pace, good movement, we played with a lot of intensity and having a lot of attempts, especially in the first 45 minutes. I don't think we felt any pressure.
"We have not finished the season. Of course if you don't just depend on you it is more difficult but we'll see what happens on Tuesday when Manchester United play West Ham.
"We deserve to be in the Champions League because we've had 37 games in the Champions League spots so I hope in the last game we will not lose that spot.
"The improvement in the Champions League has meant that playing so many games in midweek has been difficult."
