It would be an understatement to say it has been an eventful season for Arsenal.
There have been disappointing results on the pitch, protests off it and plenty else besides.
Simon Collings assesses the 2020-21 campaign at Emirates Stadium.
The season in one word | Disappointing
Star of the show | Bukayo Saka
The teenager has been the only bright spark in an otherwise dismal season. Looks a star in the making and a leader too.
Biggest disappointment | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The forward has struggled with issues on and off the pitch, which have made it a very difficult season for him.
Most improved player | Emile Smith Rowe
Started the season on the fringes of the squad and is now a first-team regular. A new contract beckons.
Game to remember | Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea (26/12/20)
Arsenal were at rock bottom before they beat Chelsea on Boxing Day at home. The win breathed life into the season.
Game to forget | Arsenal 0-1 Burnley (13/12/20)
One of the few games fans were allowed in for and one to forget. Defeat meant Arsenal had lost four straight league games at home for the first time in 61 years.
Rising star | Folarin Balogun
Made his debut for the club and scored twice during the Europa League group stages. Arsenal worked hard to tie him to a new contract.
Mikel Arteta has endured an exceptionally difficult year and is losing fan support. Cannot afford a slow start next season.
Angry and disappointed. They want the owner, Stan Kroenke, gone and are losing faith in Arteta too.
Grade | E
Not a complete failure of a season, but very close to it. The development of young players, and reaching the Europa League semi-finals, spare Arsenal getting an F.
