Only a wretched six week period in the final third of the season denied the Gunners a fourth Premier League title under the Frenchman - and a possible second Champions League final in three seasons.

That's the verdict of the Ham&High's Arsenal expert Jem Maidment on a season that promised so much, but delivered so little.
