Arsenal ended their season with a 5-1 victory over Everton, but it was not enough to seal Champions League qualification.
Mike Arteta’s team needed a slip-up from Tottenham at already relegated Norwich City to have any hope of sealing a top-four finish on Sunday.
Arsenal did their bit against a much-changed Everton team, Gabriel Martinelli getting things started with a 27th-minute penalty and Eddie Nketiah scoring soon after.
Goals from Cedric Soares and Gabriel Magalhaes followed, after Donny van de Beek netted his first Everton goal on what is likely to be his final appearance, but Spurs’ easy 5-0 win at Carrow Road rendered Arsenal’s efforts meaningless as they finished fifth, in a Europa League spot, with Martin Odegaard simply adding further gloss late on.
