Granit Xhaka scored twice for Arsenal for the first time - in his 297th appearance for the club

Arsenal recorded a thumping win over Wolves to end a fine Premier League season with a flourish at Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta's side, who were already assured of second place, ended the campaign on 84 points - the Gunners' highest points tally since the 'Invincibles' team took the title with 90 in 2003-04.

Their unexpected and exciting title challenge may have collapsed in recent weeks, but the hosts looked back to their best and were helped by passive opponents.

Granit Xhaka, who has been heavily linked with a move to the Bundesliga, set them on their way when he nodded in Gabriel Jesus' early cross from the right.

The Switzerland midfielder, who posted a 'Thanks You Gunners' message on Instagram prior to kick-off, stroked in a second from close range to bring up Arsenal's 100th goal of the campaign in all competitions after Wolves defender Max Kilman inadvertently deflected the ball into his path.
