Arsenal will end the season in eighth or tenth position which would be their worst finish since 1995 Premier League season.

The Londoners finished in 12th position in the 94-95 season under George Graham who was sent packing during mid-season despite being in charge for nine years.

The Gunners recorded their tenth loss of the season following their 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa at Villa Park in their penultimate match.

It is also the third consecutive season Arsenal have lost 10 league matches in a season that has been marred with poor strings of results.

The north London club have also managed to win four away matches all season including wins against Newcastle, West Ham, Southampton and Wolves.

Mikel Arteta's side will play Watford in the final Premier League of the season at the Emirates and would end in a disappointing campaign irrespective of the result.

Trezeguet's 27th-minute strike was enough for Villa to play for their Premier League survival in a last day fixture against West ham.

On the other hand, Arsenal are through into the FA Cup final following their 2-0 win over holders Man City at Wembley.

And would slug it out with Chelsea in the final who convincingly defeated Man United 3-1 in the other semi final fixture.

Arsenal had sacked Unai Emery last December following his poor run of form and in his second season in charge before the appointment of Arteta.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been called out by fans on social media for the role he played in the move that led to Aston Villa's goal.

The Arsenal captain was spotted on camera laughing with Tyronne Mings while Villa was about to take a corner-kick.

But the Gabonese striker lost his marker as the Englishman flicked a header that landed into the path of Trezeguet and the Egyptian finished off the move brilliantly.
