The 2021/22 Premier League campaign has officially come to an end following the final set of 10 fixtures on Sunday, and what a wild ride it was. We had action at both the top and the bottom of the table and at the Emirates, we saw six goals as Arsenal ran out 5-1 winners over Everton.

Today, we’re going to take a look at a few things we learned coming away from the North London battering.

Arsenal soar, Everton on the beach

Arsenal knew that their chance of securing a place in the top four and Champions League football was probably gone, but they went out there and did their job anyway. They stuck five past Everton and did so with a real hint of ‘what could’ve been’ for the fans to digest, whereas Everton already seemed to be on the beach. Given that they’d sealed survival earlier in the week, that’s hardly surprising.

Gunners have potential

Martinelli, Nketiah, Cedric, Gabriel, Odegaard. Those were the goalscorers with Saka and Pepe helping out with a few assists, showcasing just how much talent currently resides in this squad. They’ve got a lot of problems that need to be resolved throughout the course of the summer transfer window but Mikel Arteta is the right man in charge, and a Europa League campaign may not be the worst thing for them.

Toffees need work

Everton are going to lose some big names during the summer and we wouldn’t be surprised if they lose Frank Lampard either, given how negative the fan response has been to his time in charge. Yes, it was a nice moment for them to celebrate on the pitch when they avoided relegation, but that can’t become the norm. They have to start looking forward instead of backwards and that begins in the board room.
