Arsenal 5-0 Wolves: Granit Xhaka scores a brace as Gunners run rampant in final game
So it was not the fairytale finish Arsenal hoped this fixture would be having spent much of the season chasing the Premier League title.
Thanks to Granit Xhaka though there was still cause for celebration in Arsenals season ender against Wolves.
With the Swiss midfielder set to leave this summer, Xhaka capped what is expected to be his final appearance with two goals, picking his last game in Arsenal colours as the perfect occasion to achieve that feat for the first time.
And with a slightly better finish from another chance he might have even had a first half hat-trick.
Still, by then he had already done enough to be centre stage and in position to earn the send-off he would have wanted and deserves after reviving his Arsenal career under Mikel Arteta, going from zero to hero.
