Arsenal V Aston Villa
Can Arsenal finish above Spurs?
The Gunners take on Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in the final round of the 2015-16 Premier League season.
It’s been another difficult campaign for the Gunners, whom many felt should have won the title this year.
But that didn’t happen, and heading into the final round of the campaign the only real issue for the Arsenal faithful was to hope that Newcastle can beat Tottenham at St James’ Park so that Arsenal can finish second.
Goodbye to three midfielders
The match against Aston Villa will be memorable as it will be the final occasion that Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini will turn out in the club’s colours.
All three midfielders are out of contract at the end of the season, and they will also move on from the club.
While those players move on, reports are growing that Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante is joining Arsenal this summer.
Arsenal fans have been taking to social media in the build up to the Villa game to post their goodbye messages for Arteta, Rosicky and Flamini.
