Arsenal are set to end the season with their lowest points tally since 1995… despite being one of the few teams to beat champions Liverpool this term. It has been a campaign to forget for the Gunners who sit ninth in the Premier League table with only two games left.

Arsenal secured an impressive 2-1 win over newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool on Wednesday thanks to goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Reiss Nelson. Sadio Mane had given Liverpool a 20th-minute lead, but the game turned on its head due to individual errors from Virgil van Dijk and Alisson. Despite the win, 59 points is the maximum tally Arsenal can reach this season. Former Liverpool star Jermaine Pennantis ‘raging’ with Jurgen Klopp’s side for failing to get 100 points It means they will finish on their lowest points tally in the past 25 years when they ended the 1994/95 campaign in 12th place on 51 points in a 42-game season. Their worst tally since in a 38-game season yielded just 63 points in the 1995/96 and 2017/18 campaigns. Arsenal have endured a turbulent season with Arteta replacing the sacked Unai Emery last December. They were knocked out of the Carabao Cup and Europa League by Liverpool and Olympiakos respectively. Arsenal haven’t had a worse Premier League season since 1995 But Arteta’s men could still end the campaign with silverware as they face FA Cup holders Man City in the semi-finals on Sunday. The competition seems to be the Gunners’ best chance of playing European football next season with the club three places below Wolves in sixth in the hunt for Europa League qualification. Arteta admitted it was a ‘big concern’ over whether he would be financially backed in transfer windows to build a title-challenging squad. He said: “I don’t know. It is a big concern because you see how they build the squads. Getty Images – Getty Nelson scored the winning goal against a woefully below-par Liverpool “It is not magic, you need to improve with quality players in the squad. “You need a bigger squad to compete in this competition and that is going to be the challenge.” Arsenal will finish their Premier League season with games against relegation-threatened Aston Villa and Watford.,
