Arsenal manager Unai Emery has appealed to the club's fans to be patient with him during his rebuilding process at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners wrapped up the season with a disappointing 4-1 defeat to fellow Premier League side Chelsea in the Europa League final at the Baku Olympic Stadium.
Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud and Pedro were all on target to see the Blues clinch their second UEFA second tier championship last night.
