Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels third place in the Barclays Premier League would be just reward for his squad's strength.
The Gunners head to West Brom knowing destiny is once again in their own hands, with victory guaranteeing automatic qualification for the Champions League.
Given the disastrous start to the domestic campaign which saw four defeats from seven matches - including a humiliating 8-2 thrashing at Manchester United - to even be in this position is an achievement in itself.
Despite both Tottenham and Arsenal being able to point to opportunities missed to have already sewn up third place ahead of what is set to be a nail-biting final day, Wenger feels the way his squad responded through such times is testament to their character.
"It will be a great achievement if we manage to do it. I believe it would be reward for a group which has exceptional strength," Wenger told Arsenal Player.
"They have come through some difficult times, always recovered and always battled. Therefore I will be extremely delighted when we do it."
The French boss added: "There is even more uncertainty because fourth place is not this time necessarily in the Champions League.
"Let's make sure we finish third and win our game - that is the only answer we can give.
"To do that of course you need a full, committed performance from everybody.
"On that front I am quite sure we will get that from our players and then we will have a very good chance to do it."
Arsenal lost full-back Bacary Sagna to a broken leg during last weekend's thrilling 3-3 draw with Norwich.
Fellow Frenchman Francis Coquelin stepped in against the Canaries and the 20-year-old would relish another chance to impress on Sunday, which will be the final game for long-serving Arsenal assistant manager Pat Rice before his retirement.
"It is the last game of the season and all the staff and all of the players want to end up with this third place," Coquelin said.
"It [third place] could have been finished after Norwich because after the other results we could have qualified for the Champions League, but we drew and now we need to win this game against West Brom.
"When we came back to the training ground on Monday everybody knew it would be a tough week.
"Everybody is concentrating on West Brom and I think everybody is ready to fight for this third place."
Wenger has already moved to strengthen his squad for next season, with the £10million signing of Cologne striker Lukas Podolski.
Wenger, though, does not feel it will be a summer of much major transfer activity.
"Our job will be focused on inside [matters] now we have Podolski. That means to get Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby back in a healthy situation and then I believe we have quite a big squad," Wenger said.
"It will be [our intention] to trim a little bit and if possible add one or two players."
England winger Theo Walcott could return to action at The Hawthorns in front of new national team boss Roy Hodgson if he shakes off a hamstring problem, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is expected to feature despite a troublesome back.
