5 things Mikel Arteta got disastrously wrong this season as Arsenal bottle top four
Arsenal have secured European football - but it's not the competition that Gunners fans had been dreaming of after moving four points clear of Tottenham with only three fixtures remaining.Mikel Arteta's side had been in pole position to claim the fourth and final Champions League spot, but a collapse during the business end of the season has seen them settle for the Europa League.

Three things Mikel Arteta got but one he got wrong as Arsenal battle to Watford victory
Arsenal took a huge stride towards playing Champions League football next season as they beat Watford 3-2 away from home to move into the top four.It was an electric start at Vicarage Road as Martin Odegaard calmly slotted his effort past Ben Foster inside six minutes, before Cucho Hernandez equalised with an acrobatic effort just six minutes later.After assisting Odegaard, Bukayo Saka grabbed a goal of his own with a fantastic strike that ended a move of his own making, as he won back the ball before being set up by Alexandre Lacazette.Lacazette was again the provider but this time for Gabriel Martinelli shortly after the break, as Arsenal continued to look dangerous on every attack.But Watford did grab a late consolation through former Tottenham star Moussa Sissoko to make the end of the game uncomfortable for Arsenal, but they held on to secure all three points.Here Daily Star Sport take a look at what Mikel Arteta got right, and what he got wrong as Arsenal jump above Manchester United into the top four.What Arteta got right...Saka has been a revelation for Arsenal since coming through the academy, and he has quickly become one of the most senior players in the squad, even though he is only 20-years-old.His start against Watford was his 99th under Arteta, and the England international was clinical from the off as he provided a brilliant assist for Odegaard's opener, before putting Arsenal ahead before the break.His pace and energy continues to be a menace for defenders, and Watford's January signing Hassane Kamara was torn apart all game by the youngster.Saka's future is bright, but he is a star already, and he is usually involved in anything positive that comes Arsenal's way, and his performance against Watford was

Arsenal's refusal to activate Alexander Isak's release clause makes perfect sense
Arsenal’s attempts to sign a striker on transfer deadline day ended in failure after the club decided against activating Real Sociedad target man Alexander Isak’s release clause.The Gunners made a late move to swoop for Isak after missing out on Dusan Vlahovic, who joined Juventus in a £63million deal in the last week of the transfer window.They entered negotiations with the La Liga outfit, only to be quoted the clause for the minimum buyout fee written into his contract.La Real reportedly demanded Isak’s £77m release clause to be paid in full and informed Arsenal they would not accept a lower amount.According to The Athletic, the north London club deemed the amount to exceed his actual market value and withdrew their interest, focusing on other targets.The 22-year-old has scored eight goals in 25 appearances across all competitions, but only four in 18 La Liga outings.Isak, a Sweden international, has been tipped as the nation’s biggest attacking talent since Zlatan Ibrahimovic and caught the eye with some impressive performances at Euro 2020.While technical director Edu Gaspar may have been right to decline to pay the clause, the Brazilian will have some feelings of regret after failing to add a striker to Mikel Arteta’s squad before the transfer window shut.The club also approached Espanyol about a move for 12-goal striker Raul de Tomas, but were again told to pay his release clause, revealed to be €75m (£63m) by the club’s president.Soon, it became apparent that Arsenal would not be signing a striker, which means Arteta must cope with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah until the end of the season.Both strikers can leave on free transfers at the end of the campaign as their contracts expire in June, which could
