Arteta, 34, joined the club in 2011 and made 150 appearances, scoring 17 goals.

Rosicky, 35, signed in 2006 and was given an award for 246 appearances and 10 years of service before the Gunners' final-day win over Aston Villa.

Manager Arsene Wenger described the pair as "two exceptional players and influences in the dressing room".

'An incredible season'

Southampton 4-1 Crystal Palace

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "A difficult game, Palace played well but we were very clinical. It was not our best game, but the belief and the fight till the last seconds brought the three points. 

"Last season was a very special one, but I don't know what I have to say about this season. 63 points and fifth in the table, it is incredible."

Koeman went on to tell BBC Sport's Simon Brotherton he was "very happy" at St Mary's, and that he will talk with the club's board next week about their ambitions saying "expectations for next season will be great."

Was the Guardiola news handled well?

Swansea 1-1 Man City

Manchester City

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "One of the most difficult things to finish this season was after they announced this club will change [manager] next season, was the atmosphere inside the team.

"Of course it is not easy for a team when you are in that moment involved in all competitions, it is not easy for the players to read every day that ’11 players will go out, these are coming, these are finished’, that is why we are so proud of them, that they tried in the way they could, of course it is not easy to do it."

'Two goals were harsh'

Southampton 4-1 Crystal Palace

Palace boss Alan Pardew: "I thought our performance was good, actually. I think two shocking decisions gifted them two goals, I don't think its a penalty, contact outside, and I think it is a blatant push for the second goal. 

"We obviously protected a few (for the FA Cup final), but they (Southampton) are in good form and deserved to win. 

"The first priority was to get a result, we lost but the second was to come through unscathed. We have no injuries, and no-one sent off so we should be OK."

'We let ourselves down'

Swansea 1-1 Man City

Manchester City

Joe Hart, speaking to BBC Sport: "It is not what we set out to do at the start of the season but we will have to take it (fourth place).

"It was a strange day, getting the job done, barring a  mathematical freak, we have Champions League football next season.

"At the start of the season, well into this season we were well in the title race, but we let ourselves down, we will take positives of a trophy and semi-final of the Champions League, which was history for our club and we have Champions League next year and we have to take that.

"I have enjoyed our time under Manuel, it was important we finished off a good three years working with him."

I can't believe I've just been watching the same team! Too little too late lads but well done to the Newcastle supporters, all that passion and commitment in the stands pity it's not been on the pitch this season! Now we want to know will Rafa stay??

Frustrated Newcastle fan!

Been a Spurs fan for the 50 years since we last won the league but losing 5-1 today, and going all Spursy again suggests to me we are more likely to go backwards again next year! Finishing 3rd w Arsenal 2nd makes the season a disappointment overall!!!



Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Leicester City

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri tells BBC Sport: "It was a warm welcome for me, it was fantastic at the beginning and the end. I enjoyed the match too, both the teams wanted to win the game.

"A draw is OK because we have only lost three times this season and that is an amazing achievement.

"I have told the players it is better if they stay with us one year more and experience the Champions League."

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Leicester City end up winning the Prem Lge as convincingly as Bayern won the Bundesliga... Both finish with a 10 pt lead. Incredible. #LCFC

'If it was basketball we'd have been 20 points clear'

Stoke 2-1 West Ham

West Ham United

After a quick hug with Stoke attacker Marko Arnatoutovic, Slaven Bilic is ready to speak to the Match of the Day cameras....

"Basically, the most important thing today was to win no matter how and that we didn't do. We're disappointed to lose sixth place in the last game of the season," says the Croatian.

"But it was still a great season for us. It makes us proud.

"I'd like to congratulate Stoke - they took their chances. But it is hard to take this defeat. For the whole game we played much better football. You have to take 50% of your chances. I said to my players at half-time if it was basketball we would be 20 points clear.

"Despite losing, I'm happy because we played really good football and were totally dominant in a difficult game."

On supporting Manchester United at Wembley next week (see 17:24 entry): "I expect them to win. It will be hard but they are favourites."

Slaven Bilic was left disappointed by his side's failure to achieve sixth place

'Important I got a new contract'

Swansea 1-1 Man City

Swansea City

Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin: "It was not a simple moment when I arrived but our players and staff have worked very hard and we have finished well in the table and that is the most important thing.

"It is important for me that I got a new contract, I am happy and hope to do well next season. We have a good squad with a lot of depth and have shown that many times and deserve our position."

Swansea manager Francesco Guidolin

'A typical end of season game'

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester


Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink: "It was a typical end of the season game where there was nothing at stake. We were sloppy after the penalty and they got the equaliser.

"Until December, there were big worries as the club were one point away form the relegation zone. My first task was to get away from that and in two months we were out. As a second target, we wanted to go further and get to the top-four.

"As long as the youngsters don't say, hey grandad it's time to go, I still want to carry on.

"John Terry and the club are in contact and that is good. We must not rock the boat. In Holland we say, don't disturb the hen that is sitting on the egg."

Guus Hiddink has come to the end of his time as interim manager

Guardiola announcement hurt

Swansea 1-1 Man City

Manchester City

Manuel Pellegrini to BBC Sport: "I wanted to win the Premier League this season, but the atmosphere from February when the club announced the new manager was maybe not the best atmosphere, we lost two important games at home when we were three points behind the leaders.

"The only option we had today was that we needed to get the point to get Champions League for next year."

'No pizza tonight'

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Leicester City

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri tells Sky Sports: "The emotion is fantastic, it was a good atmosphere and I want to say thank you our fans and the Chelsea fans. It was amazing.

"It was important to finish well and it was a good match. Both teams had great chances and well done to the players. They made a lot of sacrifices in the hot weather to keep pressing.

"Our strength is to be a unit and fight for each other.

"We have to realise what has happened and then look back on our season.

"No pizza tonight - our chairman has invited us for dinner."

'It hurts a lot'

Newcastle 5-1 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Christian Eriksen speaking to Sky Sports: "It hurts a lot (not to finish second). The last four games we needed one more point and we can only blame ourselves for the last four games.

"It is maybe good to have a break now and concentrate on other stuff and keep our head really open for next season and be even better."

Forest Green 1-2 Grimsby Town

It's game on now in the National League promotion final. Forest Green have pulled a goal back but Grimsby still lead 2-1.

There's 18 minutes to go with a place in League Two for the victors at Wembley.

Live radio commentary is available on the BBC Sport website here.

Does that sound more positive than you were expecting, Newcastle fans?

Benitez: 'My heart says stay'

Newcastle 5-1 Spurs

Newcastle United

Rafa Benitez speaking to Match of the Day: "I said before the game that I am really pleased with the fans, the staff, and people here.

"My heart is telling me yes (to stay), it is a great opportunity, city and club but my brain is saying to analyse what is going on.

"I am really open to talking and see what happens. I have been in football all this time you want to be sure people love you and if you work hard that they recognise that you are trying your best and I have this here.

"I knew that every day when I walk in the streets. Everyone is so positive and the atmosphere today doesn’t surprise me too much. They were supporting for 90 minutes, I knew it would be like this and that is why I am so open to keep on talking."

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez is considering whether or not to stay at the club

'We can do it again next season'

Chelsea 1-1 Leicester

Leicester City

Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater: "Today summed us up. We always want to come back and win the game.

"It took me 38 games to score, I hit it cleanly and it ended up in the back of the net.

"Everything has come good at the same time and it is showing. We have a massive team spirit.

"We won the Premier League under Claudio Ranieri, it is an emotional and great day for him.

"I don't see why we can't do it again next season. I would love to be included in the England squad."

Stoke 2-1 West Ham

Slaven Bilic always seems to wear the expression of a man who has just found out that his partner has left him. So it's no surprise the dishevelled West Ham manager is hardly full of life after his side missed out a European place - for now at least.

"We must hope Manchester United win," he says. More quotes to follow...   

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic couldn't disguise his frustration

The race for Europe

So Manchester City got the job done with that point at Swansea to qualify for the Champions League. Somewhere in Bavaria, Pep celebrates like he has just won the lottery.

That means Southampton have secured a Europa League place, with City's spot for winning the League Cup going to sixth place. Saints are guaranteed a top-six finish, even if Manchester United beat Bournemouth, after West Ham lost at Stoke to finish seventh. 

The Hammers might still have European football to play at the Olympic Stadium if Manchester United win the FA Cup final next weekend.

And Liverpool, despite finishing eighth, will be in the Champions League if they beat Sevilla in Wednesday's Europa League final.

'Worst day as a manager'

Newcastle 5-1 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino: "First of all I would like to apologise to our fans, I think they don’t deserve all that happened today on the pitch and I apologise. It was a shame and diffcult to understand

"In the last couple of weeks when you do not play with 100 per cent it is impossible to win games and after Chelsea something happened. We cannot manage games in the right way.

"I am very disappointed because our fans don’t deserve it, it is difficult to go tonight and see my boys and my wife. I think it is unbelievable and we are very disappointed.

"We had the possibility to stay second and how we lost and how we gave to the opponent that is relegated, in the first and second half, they score three goals with 10 players it is the worst day as a manager and I feel very disappointed. We need to be sure that never happens again and need to improve our mentality. We were on holiday and that is the reality."

Mauricio Pochettino was disappointed with Tottenham's performance

A dreadful record...

Arsenal 4-0 Aston Villa

243 - Aston Villa led for just 243 minutes this season, less than any other team in Premier League history. Bleak.

Southampton 4-1 Crystal Palace

Ronald Koeman looks proud as punch as he walks around the St Mary's pitch with his players. But, with Everton said to be circling, will he still be there next season? If Europa League football, and a second half of the season only bettered by champions Leicester, won't tempt him then surely nothing will...
