Martin Tyler's top stats from the 2016/17 Premier League season

Despite a 3-1 victory over Everton on the last day of the season, Arsenal finished fifth after both Liverpool and Manchester City clinched emphatic wins over Middlesborough and Watford respectively.

"Don Conte" as he is affectionately called by Chelsea fans, the fiery Italian turned around a hard start to end the season champions with a comfortable difference of seven points.

Unfortunately for Wenger, he hasn't claimed a Premier League title since that historic season, leading to many of his own fan-base to turn on him.

Premier League champions Chelsea have reportedly held initial talks with Bakayoko's agents and want to up their interest in the France worldwide.

Providing they win a Champions League qualifier at the start of next season they will take their place in Europe's elite competition for only the second time in seven seasons, having missed out on Europe altogether this season. Past year we came close (to a trophy) but couldn't get over the line.

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech insists missing one year of the Champions League is not a problem but says the club must keep their star players if they want to return.

"For a few weeks we knew that's the maximum we can achieve and we did it".

"There is still a lot of room for improvement and hopefully we can continue that in the Champions League next season".

"Maybe (we are more attractive) but it's one thing saying you're coming to play in the Champions League and another proving you're good enough to play in it".

"He did extremely well and what he did [with] 26 years is absolutely exceptional because you look at what happens in the game, usually average life expectancy of a manager is 18 months, so our total is quite unusual".

Standing at 6'2, Spurs man Toby Alderweireld has established himself as among the best defenders in the Premier League in his three seasons on the British Isles.

RTÉ Soccer analyst Eamon Dunphy believes that Arsenal's transfer and recruiting policy is to blame for them finishing outside of the top four this year, rather than manager Arsene Wenger.

A new left-back is on Klopp's list of targets after Milner, a right-footed midfielder, deputised all season.

"Of course you want to avoid this drama", Wenger said.

Sixth-placed Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 after resting several players ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax Amsterdam in Stockholm.

They were so close to pulling it back, and they're the first team in Premier League history to have won 75 points and not qualify for the Champions League.
