Arsène Wenger signed off in style on Sunday when Arsenal ran out 5-0 winners over Burnley in his final home match in charge of the club.

It was an emotionally charged atmosphere inside the Emirates Stadium as the Frenchman brought the curtain down on 22 years and 1200 games as Gunners boss.

Before kick-off, the 68-year-old was given a guard of honour by both teams and Clarets boss Sean Dyche.

These were the scenes as the final whistle blew for the last time at the Emirates under Wenger’s stewardship.

But it wasn’t just Wenger who was saying goodbye to the Emirates on Sunday.

The Frenchman was then presented with a special gold Premier League trophy to mark Arsenal’s remarkable unbeaten season in 2003/04.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as he stood in the centre circle and basked in the adulation of the crowd.

And then, with a number of Arsenal legends in attendance, it was time for Wenger to address the Emirates Stadium faithful for the final time.

Merci and au revoir, Arsène. You will be missed.
