Arsenal & Everton
Two clubs who had a bad weekend in the Premier League were Arsenal and Everton.
Both sides were losers in gameweek 29 of the season: Burnley beat Everton 2-1 on Saturday, Brighton beat Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday.
Arsenal’s defeat leaves them sixth in the Premier League, while their top four hopes are in tatters.
For the first time in Arsene Wenger’s career, the manager has lost four matches in a row.
Arsenal have lost eight matches in 2018.
As for Everton, they are down to eleventh as the Toffees struggle to achieve anything positive from the season.
Sam Allardyce out, Arsene Wenger in
On Monday morning, the Star have published a big transfer rumour.
The tabloid tell their readers that Everton are ready to get rid of Sam Allardyce as they look to appoint Arsene Wenger instead. The Star announce:
Everton are set to offer Arsene Wenger an immediate return to Premier League management if he is sacked by Arsenal.
The under-fire boss is wanted by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri, who feels Wenger is the ideal candidate to revive the Merseyside club’s fortunes.

So how likely is this to happening? Both Big Sam and Wenger are under contract until the end of next season, although their respective fan bases would love them out this summer.
But would Everton fans welcome Wenger’s arrival at Goodison Park? What would Theo Walcott have to say about it?
From the outside it seems highly unlikely that this managerial merry-go-round will happen.
AC Milan vs Arsenal
The Gunners are back in action on Thursday night when they take on AC Milan at the San Siro in the Europa League.
Milan were supposed to play INter MIlan on Sunday night, but that match was postponed following the tragic death of Fiorentina’s Davide Astori.
