Manager Mikel Arteta admits that he can’t be pleased with Arsenal’s finishing position in the Premier League, despite the fact their points tally would have secured fifth place last season.
The Gunners finished in eighth place for the second consecutive campaign, despite picking up an extra five points than in the previous season.
Last year however, they rescued European football via winning the FA Cup, while this season our best effort to win a trophy came in the Europa League, where we were eliminated at the semi-final stage, and will now suffer without any form of European football.

Does the points tally and the crazy extended winless run before Christmas show that there was actually plenty to be positive about despite failing to get into Europe?
