Alexandre Lacazette Starts - Arsenal Team vs Burnley Confirmed

No fairytale for Wenger Twitter divided as Arsenal manager’s last European game ends in 1-0 loss

This consequently meant that Burnley can not finish lower than seventh now, guaranteeing them a place in the Europa League qualifying rounds.

Burnley, who narrowly avoided relegation last season but are now preparing themselves for their first season of European football since 1967, had been hoping to pull level on points with Arsenal.

Wenger's last-ever Arsenal programme notes kicked off with the manager talking about the painful Europa League semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid on Thursday night. "Above all, like you, I am an Arsenal fan".

On a day dominated by tributes to the Frenchman, Wenger was greeted with a guard of honour before kick-off and presented with a special gold trophy originally given to the club for winning the Premier League without losing a game in 2003/04 under his guidance.

I don't want it to end it but unfortunately it has come to an end.

In a moving speech on the pitch, Wenger said: "Thank you for having me for such a long time, I know that is not easy but above all I am like you - I am an Arsenal fan".

However, there was plenty for the supporters to shout about in a fitting finale for Wenger as Arsenal displayed the attractive brand of attacking football that characterised his most successful sides over the past two decades. I would like to thank everyone at the club who makes this club so special.

In Wenger's final home match as Arsenal boss, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang book-ended the scoring, with Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac and Alex Iwobi also finding the back of the net.

Then, after the game, the club put on a attractive tribute for their longest serving manager and arguably their very greatest.

'What I will miss most about this job is the competition itself, ' Wenger wrote.

"It will be hard to say thank you enough", he told a news conference (via Goal).

While this game means nothing on the surface, if you look at the table, you will see that sixth place is not even a guarantee for the Gunners. "Well done. Bye bye".
