Arsenal Premier League season assessed: best player, best signing & more
Mail's Sami Mokbel delivers his view on our season.
Arsenal have ended this season in fifth place in the Premier League. This campaign had its own ups and downs. It's time to deliver an assessment of the past year in England. There is no doubt about the player of the season, however, Torreira or Leno could have been picked as a signing of the season as well.
Player of the season: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
"Consistently on the scoresheet for Arsenal. The 20-plus goals a season man they've craved for years. Special mention, too, to Alexandre Lacazette."
Best signing: Sokratis
"Just pips Lucas Torreira, whose influence has waned during the final months of the season. Sokratis is limited – but exactly the sort of central defender Arsenal required."
The Good: "Their 22-game unbeaten run at the start of the season had fans asking Arsene who?"
The Bad: "The long-term injury to Rob Holding, Danny Welbeck and Hector Bellerin cost Unai Emery's side dear."
The Ugly: "The home loss to Crystal Palace [2-3] in April which, for all intents and purposes, cost them a top-four slot."
