Unai Emery has failed to guide Arsenal to a top four finish in the Premier League in his debut season as manager.
The Gunners did not manage to overcome north London rivals Tottenham on the final day so have finished fifth in the table.
This means Arsenal have qualified for the Europa League and face a third successive season out of the Champions League.
However, not all is lost, as Emery can still guide Arsenal to Champions League qualification.
The north Londoners may have missed out on qualification through their league position, but they can still book a place in Europe’s premier competition this season.
But to do so they must beat another one of their London rivals in a match which will take place 2,853 miles from the capital.

The Europa League final pits Arsenal against Chelsea in Baku, Azerbaijan, with the winner clinching a place in the group stage of the 2019/20 Champions League.
Chelsea have already secured qualification for the Champions League, but they’ll be doing Arsenal no favours on May 29.
Maurizio Sarri wants to win his first trophy as Blues boss, and fans will love their club to not only win silverware, but also deny Arsenal a Champions League spot at the same time.
So, Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League are not over, but everything now rests on a one-off game against a local rival.
Win, and Arsenal are back among Europe’s elite. Lose, however, and it’s another season of Thursday night football for the Gunners.
