Arsene Wenger sad as Atletico ruin his Arsenal farewell

France boss Deschamps upset for Arsenal crock Koscielny

Arsenal came up short against an organised Atletico defence that produced its 12th clean sheet at the Wanda Metropolitano by denying the Premier League side's attempts to cancel out Diego Costa's first-half victor.

The former Chelsea striker's goal proved to be the victor, following the 1-1 draw at the Emirates a week ago.

Instead, Wenger will wave goodbye at the end of his 22-year reign at Huddersfield as the Gunners travel to the John Smith's Stadium on the final day of the Premier League campaign.

The gunners managed just one shot on target to rescue a season that was not enough.

Diego Costa is back and fit to play for Atletico having watched the first leg from the substitutes' bench due to injury. "I believe we were a bit unlucky a few times", Wenger said.

"Looking at the chances over the two games the least we could say is we are very frustrated".

Atletico's 12th consecutive clean sheet in their new home ruined Wenger's aspirations for one final silverware.




Wenger was asked about his own future plans following the defeat but said he could not think about anything past the pain of dropping out of the competition.

"It's very sad, I'm very sad tonight".

Arsenal's away form doesn't invite optimism given they have failed to win away in their last nine domestic games.

Further details were not provided by the club during the game, but Wenger spoke in his post-match news conference and said he is hoping for "a miracle" for Koscielny, suggesting the issue is a rupture of the Achilles. 'We wanted to do it for him, had an unbelievable carrer, wanted to try our best for him to finish on the top, adds more to our disappointment.

In added time at the end of the first half Costa took full advantage of an Arsenal defence that already seemed like it was back in the dressing room.

Former Chelsea striker Costa outmuscled Nacho Monreal but fired into the side-netting before Laurent Koscielny was stretchered off in agony in the 11th minute with a torn Achilles which will rule him out of the World Cup with France. We missed a lot of opportunities and missed something in the final ball. 'Even very frustrated, as well, because when you go out of a competition and you had the performances in 180 minutes that we had, it very hard to take.
