Arsenal experienced a painful night when they lost 1-4 to Pep Guardiola’s side. This result helps Manchester City to win the championship more than Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students. The Gunners’ efforts in the Premier League throughout the season risked going in vain.
Arsenal received small good news after losing to Man City. In the East Midlands, Nottingham Forest’s 3-1 win over Brighton not only improved the home team’s chances of staying in the Premier League, but also a significant result for Arsenal.
This result ensures Arsenal qualify for next season’s Champions League. This is the first time the Gunners have qualified for the Champions League since the 2015/16 season, when they finished second behind Leicester in the Premier League.
The London club have not played a Champions League match since the 2-10 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in the round of 16 of the 2016/17 season.
Last year, Arsenal could have attended the Champions League, but ultimately lost their place to neighbor Tottenham Hotspur. This season, the Emirates Stadium team has quickly completed this task as they aim to win the Premier League.
