It might not be a trophy but the millions on offer for securing Champions League football for yet another season as well as the pleasure of making sure that Sp*rs keep playing on Thursday nights is reason enough for anyone connected with Arsenal to celebrate. The team can be forgiven for going a little crazy after they secured fourth place yesterday at Newcastle.
After the match, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain tweeted a photo of the players in their dressing room and it is clear to see what the win meant to them all.
Often accused of not caring throughout the season, after defeat at White Hart Lane, Arsenal strung together a ten game unbeaten run, winning eight and drawing two, to claw back a seven point gap. Love how Giroud felt the need to hold his shirt up just in case we weren’t sure who he was.
