Arsenal has been able to salvage a satisfactory performance this year after they beat Premier League champions Chelsea a the FA Cup finale last weekend.

Wenger has been repeatedly criticised for Arsenal’s poor form this season when they were not able to finish in the top 4 position of the Premier League table. They fell just one point short of Liverpool.
