Two African players made an impact as Arsenal played their last home game for the 2017/2018 English Premier League season.
The game at the Emirates was also the last at the venue for long-serving manager, Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman leaves Arsenal after twenty-two years in charge.
Gabonese international Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scored the first and last goals of a 5 – 0 thrashing of Burnley in front of a full house.
Academy product and Nigerian international Alex Iwobi also put up a man of the match display and scored a goal. The other two goals were by Kolasanic and Lacazette.
Wenger was given a guard of honour before the game started. He returned after the final whistle to do a lap of honour around the Emirates.
He is Arsenal’s longest serving and most successful manager. Scores of his former players were at the Emirates for the send off. The hashtag #MerciArsene has been trending on twitter.
The club gave Wenger a miniature golden trophy that was handed to them for the record unbeaten season run in 2003/2004.
