No fairytale for Wenger Twitter divided as Arsenal manager’s last European game ends in 1-0 loss

Wenger revealed in his television interview before kick-off that Mesut Ozil was sidelined with a back injury that could yet keep the Germany global out for the remainder of the season.

Burnley hardly got out of their own half in the opening 30 minutes as Arsenal dominated the ball, although the Gunners were finding it hard to build on their early advantage.

So which players will Wenger be most delighted with?

The first "there's only one Arsene Wenger" chants followed as he made his way along the line before shaking hands with Burnley boss Sean Dyche and waving to the crowd.

Piers Morgan has taken to social media to deliver his honest thoughts on Arsene Wenger after the Arsenal manager's final home game in charge of the north London club. A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well as goals from Sead Kolasinac, Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Iwobi secured the ideal finale.

During his tenure - the second longest in the English Football League - Wenger led Arsenal to three Premiership titles and seven FA Cups.

"I hope he finds a new challenge too, because I know he is still hungry to win competitions". Arsenal went to great lengths to make Wenger's final home match unforgettable, with queues forming hours before kick-off so fans could sign a book of farewell messages to be presented to Wenger.

Simmons Has Horror Game In Loss To Celtics
If Simmons had offered Philly anything offensively, they would've secured a win as they had three players score 20+ points each. The NBA Eastern Conference semifinals matchup between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics has a lot of history.

A break may be on the cards after more than two decades at Arsenal, but whatever the future holds, the Frenchman is adamant football will remain at the centre of his life.

Then, after the game, the club put on a handsome tribute for their longest serving manager and arguably their very greatest.

"Like you, I will continue to support Arsenal for the rest of my life".

"For me this group of players has a special quality, not only on the pitch but also off it".

Arsenal will finish this season in sixth, as low as they ever have in Wenger's reign, and defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals means for a second straight season Wenger has failed to qualify Arsenal for the Champions League.

"It will be hard to say thank you enough", he told a news conference (via Goal). I hope to see you soon.
