Olivier Giroud scored a hat-trick to guide Arsenal to a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa at the Emirates as we finished above Tottenham in second position in the table.

Here are my ratings:

Cech   6/10 | Only called upon to make a couple of routine saves to secure his 16th clean sheet which sees him win the Golden Gloves.

Bellerin  7/10 | Another fine display down the right saw Hector pick up his fifth assist of the campaign with a superb ball for Giroud.

Gabriel   5/10 | Not at his best as the Brazilian was caught out several times by Andre Ayew.

Koscielny   6/10 | A solid performance from Koscielny who still looks more comfortable next to Mertesacker.

Monreal   7/10 | Made a crucial interception to keep it at 1-0 and provided the assist for Giroud’s opener with a lovely cross.

Coquelin   5/10 | Seemed to be off the pace a little, which is understandable given he hasn’t played recently.

Wilshere   6/10 | Drifted in from his right wing position and was involved in some good moments. Missed a great chance to score though.

Cazorla  7/10 | It was like he was never away. Controlled possession in the middle of the park and instigated attacks.

Ozil   7/10 | Created a number of chances but only provided one assist taking his season tally to 19, meaning he just misses out on the record.

Sanchez   7/10 | A lively performance showered with sublime touches and a few frustrating moments. Went close to scoring on a couple of occasions.

Giroud   9/10 | Finished off a frustrating campaign with a superb hat-trick. When he’s on form, he’s a real handful. He just needs to be more consistent!


Elneny  6/10 | On to shore things up in midfield.

Arteta N/A | Great to see him say goodbye. Looked to have scored the fourth but will go down as an own goal.

Campbell N/A | On too late.

So our win combined with Tottenham’s 5-1 thrashing at Newcastle means we finish second in the table. It’s been a disappointing campaign over all but at least we retain our bragging rights in North London and can celebrate St Totteringham’s Day for the 21st consecutive season.
