Arsenal players react on Twitter to finishing second, Mesut Ozil trolls Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal players also said goodbye to Mikel Arteta.

It has been an eventful final day in the Premier League and one of the more interesting and impressive positional movements saw Arsenal overtake their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur into second place in the league table.

Arsenal were comfortable 4-0 winners against Aston Villa, with Olivier Giroud bagging a hat-trick and Mikel Arteta claiming a monumental fourth – although it has also been credited as a Mark Bunn own goal – on what will be his final appearance for the Gunners.

With that in mind plenty of the Arsenal first-team and some of their youngsters took to Twitter after the game to wish Arteta well in the future – as well as Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini, both of whom did not play but are also leaving this summer.

Here are some of the best:

Mesut Ozil ended his assist drought today and he was also over the moon with the comfortable result.

But, despite not winning any silverware himself this season, he was quick to remind Tottenham just who finished second in the Premier League after all this campaign:

Arsenal will now be looking to strengthen over the summer and finish above Spurs again next term whilst Tottenham will be kicking themselves for throwing away the bragging rights.
