City has 75 points, Liverpool 73, and Arsenal 72.
George Honeyman is also struggling to shake off a back injury as the Black Cats, who won at Hull earlier this month, look for back-to-back Premier League away wins for the first time since April 2014.
"I don't know whether it would be successful or not, but I think it would be positive to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final", Sanchez added. Leicester, who won the title last season, are now 11th with two games left and end their season at home to Bournemouth, in tenth.
The United boss made eight changes to the team that saw off Celta Vigo in the Europa League on Thursday to set up a final against Ajax on May 24, and saw his side beaten 2-1 to end their top-four hopes.
Saturday's fixtures involving the above teams are: Watford v Manchester City, Liverpool v Middlesbrough and Arsenal v Everton and depending on how those results go there are three possible play-off scenarios, where two teams would finish tied on points, goal difference and goals scored. If they win, they'll secure a spot for the Champions League.
A draw, and they would be overtaken by an Arsenal win.

Wenger bemoaned some teams being "on holiday" with nothing to play for late in the Premier League season, with Arsenal relying on others to claim a top-four finish.
"I feel he had something still (to give)", Wenger said.
Each position in the league is worth an additional £1.9 million (S$3.43 million) thanks to the new TV deal - Chelsea will earn £38 million for finishing top, while the bottom club Sunderland will earn the minimum £1.9 million.
If Arsenal and City were to finish level on all the variables, Liverpool's result could dictate whether their play-off would be for third or fourth place. However, due to the current situation, one should ask if this is not the time to test the players who will be staying next season.
"Firstly, he [Sanchez] scored a lot of goals for us but his first job is not to be a striker, it is more midfield but he is an unbelievable player". Squad depth has been an issue in this campaign, so attracting better quality players is a must, and the Champions League will help them do that. I'm sure we are improving, for the next two games and for next season as well.
"So that is not a big difference and I don't think that anybody needs this special motivation or whatever".
