The Reds struggled to create clear-cut chances after dominating the first half but finally broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time as Gini Wijnaldum fired home at the near post following a lovely link-up with Roberto Firmino.

Arsenal's fifth successive victory was secured by first-half goals from Hector Bellerin and Alexis Sanchez, and a stoppage-time strike by Aaron Ramsey.

Arsenal face Chelsea in next Saturday's FA Cup final, after which Wenger's future is set to be decided at a board meeting.

Arsenal's haul of 75 points is the most recorded by a fifth-placed team in Premier League history.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane scored his second hat-trick of the week to finish as the Premier League's leading scorer for the season.

At that stage, with Liverpool being held at home by Middlesbrough, it looked as though Arsenal could yet squeeze into the top four but as news filtered through that Liverpool had gone ahead, those hopes faded.

Although Arsenal defeated Everton 3-1, they could not join the top four and will miss the next edition of the Champions League, reports Efe.

"But the psychological environment for that group of players was absolutely horrendous and I'm very proud of what they have done, the way they responded and finished the season".

Chelsea captain John Terry bows out in style as a Premier League champion.

Say whatever you want about the Frenchman, but Wenger has been the only person at Arsenal Football Club fronting up and taking all the criticism, right or wrong, that has been thrown at him by the fans. Thumping first Leicester 6-1 in midweek and then sticking seven past relegated Hull showed just what this young, exciting Spurs side are capable of - with only an FA Cup semi-final defeat at the hands of Chelsea and the loss away to West Ham the only defeats since mid-February. "I have two years left on my deal and I am happy here". Arsenal will be in the Europa League with Everton, which finished in seventh place and scored its only goal at the Emirates Stadium from the penalty spot through Romelu Lukaku in the 57th minute. In May 2016 they reached 38 games with 81 points.

As seen in the video below, supporters made their feelings clear towards the American though, singing for him to "get out of our club" as they also held banners up in the stands to get their message across. One of the debutants - Josh Harrop - scored the opener and the other goal came from Paul Pogba, the world's most expensive player.

"It's not my personal situation, it's just how well the club responds next season".

With City and Liverpool comfortably winning, there was nothing Arsenal could do to muscle into the top four.
