Outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the introduction of a European super league, resisted for years by football's authorities, is "inevitable" and says Premier League matches will ultimately be moved to midweek.

But it's the way Wenger has got his Arsenal players thinking that the 68-year-old wants to be mainly remembered for.

Ospina is remaining tight-lipped on any last participant celebrations on the John Smith's Stadium, the place journey sick Arsenal, already assured to complete sixth, will look to select up their first level on the street in 2018.

Nearly 15 months ago, as the Arsenal fanbase grew increasingly split over whether Wenger should stay, a plane was flown over the Hawthorns as West Brom beat the Gunners 3-1.

Such a scenario would mean a massive reformation of the game, as the lucrative Champions League now schedules its games for Tuesdays and Wednesday evenings, with a majority of domestic league games played on the weekend.

Wenger has revealed that the long farewell to his reign as Arsenal manager has not been a completely enjoyable experience. Wenger was given gifts to mark the day and a guard of honour was once again formed for the Arsenal manager before kick off.

"Huddersfield have worked their socks off in the last two games - I can't think there'd be much left in the tank - so I'm tipping Wenger to sign off with a win". The structures of the club, the way you can influence individual players' lives as well.

The Gunners have a miserable record on the road in the Premier League this season to limit their ability to challenge for a top-four finish.

Whether Wenger will return to management elsewhere or settle for a director of football role with one of Europe's superpowers remains to be seen.

"I enjoyed some aspects of it, yes - and not all", he said.

"I will stay in football for sure".

Wenger made a beeline for the travelling Arsenal fans, bowing to them as they chanted his name - something the whole stadium took part in on 22 minutes, rising as one to applaud his 22-year tenure as Arsenal boss.
