Arsenal’s performance for the 2016/2017 English Premier League (EPL) season on Sunday ended on a disappointing note following the team’s failure to secure a top-four finish for the first time in 20 years.
Arsenal produced a convincing 3-1 defeat of Everton but it was not enough to push them through, having Liverpool and Manchester City to dispossess.
However, the top-four slot considered by many pundits as Arsenal’s birth right eluded them following Liverpool and City’s defeat of their opponents Middlesbrough and Watford respectively.
Man City humiliated Watford 5-0 to claim the third spot, while Liverpool humbled relegated Middlesbrough 3-0 to seal a fourth place finish on the last day of the EPL season.
