Arsenal hailed for missing out on the European competition.

Arsenal hailed for missing out on the European competition

Arsenal completed their Premier League season on a positive note as they beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 on Sunday.

However, the win was not sufficient to ensure European football for next season, and this has been praised as ‘brilliant news’ by journalist and fan Piers Morgan.

Progressing into the final matchday, Arsenal knew they were out of competition for the Europa League. The only probable way to qualify for Europe was through the Conference League, by finishing seventh.

Tottenham overcoming at Leicester City secured their north London rivals would finish eighth and miss out on Europe for the first time in more than two decades.

Before the match began, Morgan had tweeted what he thought of the final day. He said:

“If we beat Brighton and Spurs/ Everton both drop points then we will qualify for the new utterly pointless Europa Conference League for teams not good enough to get into either the Champions League or Europa League. Come on boys!!!!!”

Once the results had been affirmed and the Gunners missed to qualify, the journalist took to Twitter again, to express his opinions. This time he said:

“UPDATE: BOOM! We fail to qualify for the Europa Conference League!! Brilliant news.”

Failing to qualify for UEFA’s newly set competition could turn out to be a grace in disguise. It will allow the club to concentrate exclusively on the Premier League and try to climb up the table.

But it also suggests that manager Mikel Arteta will have no reasons if the team does the same way next season. Despite winning their last five league games, this season has been a severe setback for the Gunners.

For the development and financial health of the club, they should be playing in a European tournament, but their aim should be higher than the Conference League. Having not been a part of the Champions League since the 2016/17 season, the aim for 2021/22 should be to get there.

And without Thursday night football to bother about, Arsenal should give it their all and try to deliver a top-four. Arteta should use this summer as motivation to adjust and ensure the same mistakes are not repeated.
