Huddersfield Town 0-1 Arsenal: Poacher Aubameyang gives Arsene Wenger winning send-off

The north London club have been sifting through a number of high profile names since Wenger announced his 22-year association with the club was to come to an end at the conclusion of the season, with the likes of Patrick Vieira, Joachim Löw, Luis Enrique, Julian Nagelsmann and Jorge Sampaoli now reportedly cut from the process.

For his final Arsenal line-up, Wenger has opted for the back four of Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding and Sead Kolasinac, with Granit Xhaka, Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey forming the midfield three for Arsenal.

Wenger walked over to the away section and bowed in appreciation before the game, then went back out to greet them again after the final whistle.

Wenger, who had been afforded a warm reception laced with complete respect when disembarking from the team coach and before kick-off, saw his team handed a fiery reception on it as Wagner's side started brightly.

"If he decides to go, I will be so sad but I will understand his decision because it's his career, his life, his family, and I am not the right guy to say you don't have to do that".

"This game isn't just about Arsenal's away-day blues and Wenger's final Gunners goodbye".

Having spent the last two seasons enduring abuse from Arsenal fans frustrated by their club's failure to win the title since 2004, Wenger's farewell tour has been played out to a soundtrack of praise. It was understandable as it has been a long season for them and they have been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League. Arsenal sent him out in style in their last home game, thrashing Burnley 5-0 in an appropriately Wenger-ball style.

A plane even flew over the ground with a banner trailing behind reading: 'Merci Arsene, we'll miss you too'.

It was as heartening as it was moving and their magnamous gesture should be applauded by every Arsenal fan.

And the Gabonese striker also became the fastest Gunner to 10 Premier League goals, netting in his 13th match.

He said: "I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and quality".

"I believe I had an impact on the club as a whole because the club today is a strong position", he said. "As a kid, I learnt about the country's special resistance, a non-violent resistance, and I was certainly impressed by that".

'I've had offers, yes of course. "As I've said many, many times I will remain an Arsenal fan above all and that's what's most important for me".
