Arsenal fought valiantly till the end but it wasn’t enough, as Manchester City went on to win their fourth successive Premier League title on the final day. Man City overcame West Ham United 3-1, while the Gunners defeated Everton 2-1 in the last match week. It meant City managed 91 points from 38 games, while the North London outfit finished second with 89 points to their name.

This is the second season in succession that Arsenal have lost the Premier League title to Manchester City. After the final day’s action, Mikel Arteta expressed his disappointment at missing out on the coveted trophy but at the same time, he also praised his players and staff for the effort they put in. “First of all congratulations to Manchester City for winning the Premier League, it’s unbelievable what they have done,” Arteta, quoted on, said after the match.

He added: “Since December we’ve been on an incredible journey with every performance has been at the highest level we have seen and it still wasn’t enough, this is the level. Today is mixed emotions, first of all to be really proud of those players, the staff they have done an incredible job, they have pushed every limit, every margin that we could find to try to win this Premier League and unfortunately it was a bit short. We could not deliver the big prize that we wanted, you can feel it that they are desperate for it.”

The Arsenal manager then went down the memory lane and spoke about his regret with the Aston Villa defeat last month. Despite producing a dominant first-half performance, the Gunners ended up losing the game 2-0 at home. “For sure, Aston Villa at home – in the first half we should’ve been 4-0 and maybe the story would be different, but what happened last Tuesday, maybe today we are champions. The margins are so, so, so small and that’s the credit the club and the team should take because we are doing this against the best team in the history of the Premier League, by far,” he said.

After missing out on the league title to City in the second successive season, Arteta spoke about taking things to the next level in the coming campaign. “It’s the only way, so now we are sitting there and they took it away from us. It is the second season so there’s only one way to do it, you have to be more determined, you have to be more ambitious, you need to have a lot of courage and push every limit and everything that we have, because that’s the next step,” he elaborated.
