Arsenal failed to finish in the top four and qualify for UEFA Champions League football for the first time in 20 years on Sunday, despite beating Everton 3-1 at the Emirates.
With the race for top four positions going to the last day, the Gunners had to hope that Liverpool slipped up at home to relegated Middlesbrough. Sadly for Arsene Wenger and his men, the Reds got the job done at Anfield meaning the league season ends on a definite sour note for the club.
A Hector Bellerin goal and an Alexis Sanchez effort bookended a Laurent Koscielny red card in the first half, meaning Arsenal had to dig deep to pick up all three points. Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for Everton in the second half and it wasn’t until Aaron Ramsey netted in stoppage time that the points were safe.
With more protests at the ground and a general discontent growing into full scale revolt, the pressure is on Wenger to deliver silverware next week in the FA Cup final.
The calls for him to leave the club are growing once again and fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
"I've said no to every single club in the world." Wenger is so arrogant. As if Real Madrid or Barcelona asked him to manage them ???? #MOTD

Wenger is just selfish if he stays

Conte took Chelsea from 10th to 1st.
Wenger took Arsenal from 2nd to 5th having spent more. #WengerOut

Clown Wenger said not being in CL won't affect Arsenal financially. What the donkey is saying is don't expect any top signings.#wengerout
