What should have been a home banker turned into a nightmare, as they went down 2-1, and it sparked a genuine collapse.

Arsenal, who began the day a point behind fourth-place Liverpool, were on course to displace the Reds when they took an eighth-minute lead in the match.

A 4-3 loss on the opening day at home to Liverpool (which would prove costly at the season's end), was corrected with a 3-0 triumph over Chelsea, and big wins over Hull (4-1), Sunderland (4-1) and West Ham (5-1).

Tottenham Hotspurs finished second, followed by Manchester City and Liverpool.

Wenger received the backing of old foe Ferguson in midweek, with the Manchester United legend giving his former counterpart a glowing appraisal.

United can still qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League Final against Ajax on Wednesday.

"We have to look at ourselves and we will be hungry for the same things next year".

With Arsenal having finished fifth in the league, attention now turns to Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea, when victory would give Wenger a record seventh success in the competition.

The Frenchman, who is yet to sign a new deal at the club, believes only minor tweaks will be required for the team to bounce back.

"It has been hard, yes, and certainly my personal situation has contributed to that but you can never question my professionalism or commitment".

"It's all good. You have to make steps and the steps for us are to be around the best teams in the world because we are one of the best clubs in the world".

"I do not know if it will be my last match at Arsenal - but it will not be my last match whatever happens because I will stay in football". I want to win the cup for my club. The parachute payments will only go so far as clubs try to rebuild and keep hold of as many of their players as possible to make a swift return.

I really feel sorry for him because I think he's shown outstanding qualities, and I think he has handled the whole situation.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said he may not get the transfer business he is hoping for done before preseason starts.

"Add to that the torment of finally losing out on next season's Champions League involvement and a variety of dilemmas in the upper management and, all in all, it is not a great time for the Gunners".
