The final day of the Premier League season ended with an Arsenal win. Arsenal took the lead in the 5th minute through a Giroud header but for the majority of the afternoon it was uncomfortable as Arsenal were sloppy. However, Giroud scored his second in the 78th minute before completing his hat trick in the 80th minute. Arteta then came on for his final performance and scored the 4th with what was effectively the last kick of the game but it may go down as an own goal.
Cech – 7 - Didn’t have much to do but kept another clean sheet which means he will either win or share the golden glove depending how De Gea does in the last game for United.
Bellerin – 7 – Looked dangerous going forward and defended well in the game.
Gabriel – 6 – Made a mistake early on which could have cost a goal and would have been punished by a better team.
Koscielny – 7 - A solid performance and never really looked troubled.
Monreal - 7- Got the assist for the opening goal with a great cross and defended well throughout the game.
Coquelin – 7 – Played well breaking up the play and this was shown in the move for the 4th goal.
Cazorla – 7 – A returning Cazorla had a good game after being out for so long. He showed everyone what Arsenal have missed.
Wilshere – 7 – Wilshere got another run out for Arsenal and had a fairly quiet game. Should have scored but all round was solid.
Ӧzil – 7 –Performed well and caps of an excellent season. Provided the assist for Giroud second goal.
Sanchez – 7 – Looked dangerous throughout the afternoon but couldn’t find the goal he craved.
Giroud – 9 – Had 3 chances and scored them all and played with confidence after the goal last weekend. However, we still need another striker to compete with him.
Elneny – 6 – Should have scored on a couple of occasions but didn’t.
Campbell – N/A – Didn’t have any time to influence the game.
Arteta – 7 – Rounded off his Arsenal career with a goal.
Overall, Arsenal finish second in the league after the one of the greatest collapses in North London. However, this will feel like a season of missed opportunity. Good luck to Arteta, Flamini and Rosicky who depart the club and have given everything. However, Rosicky who has served for 10 years will always have a place in my heart and will be sorely missed. He remained loyal throughout and would have been a legend in Arsenal history if he could have remained fit.
Have a great summer Gooners and see you in August when it all starts again.
