Arsene Wenger: Arsenal years without trophies were my best

David Ospina needs Arsenal to supply "readability" as they seek for the managerial successor to Arsene Wenger, who will take cost of the Gunners for the ultimate time at Huddersfield on Sunday. "There's a contrast there because if you look at the audiences of the Champions League it is not fantastic". They know from the first game they have to be ready to fight.

Petr Cech is set to continue in goal despite shipping in three goals against Leicester in midweek. A new goalkeeper should be a priority in the summer but the need is perhaps even greater in defence.

Arsenal will be without captain Laurent Koscielny after the defender suffered a serious Achilles injury and will miss the World Cup with France.

There is uncertainty in midfield too.

But another message trailed from a plane toward the end of the game in northern England, one blaming owner Stan Kroenke for Arsenal's failure to win the title since 2004: "Kroenke - you're next". With Santi Cazorla also heading towards the exit, Arsenal are crying out for reinforcements. In recent years, Arsenal have become error-prone and tactically naive.

Two of the Premier League's punchy over-achievers meet at Turf Moor on the final day of a remarkable season for the Lancashire club.

That is not to say there are no tools to work with.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy continued his magnificent scoring record against Arsenal on Wednesday as he slammed home a penalty to help his side secure a 3-1 home win over the London club, who were reduced to 10 men in the first half.

The Foxes could have been out of sight by half-time, but Arsenal held firm and got their reward eight minutes after the interval when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled them level. Speaking in an interview uploaded on the official Facebook page of Arsenal Football Club, the French manager said that he regrets never visiting the country in his life.

The football will be a mere side story, with Arsenal immovable in sixth and Huddersfield already safe.

Aaron Mooy blasted a half-volley off the crossbar, but Arsenal were able to see out a fond farewell for Wenger, and end a seven-game losing run away from home in the league in the process. There will most definitely be a carnival atmosphere inside the John Smith's stadium because of this and the Huddersfield players will want to give the crowd something more to cheer.
