Arsenal were brought back down to earth against Aston Villa on Tuesday night.
After impressive wins over Liverpool in the Premier League and Manchester City in the FA Cup, the good feeling was back at the Emirates Stadium.
But following the defeat to Villa, there is now no doubt Mikel Arteta will be desperate to improve his squad this summer to get the club back into top-four contention.

With that in mind, here we take a look at all the latest rumours and gossip surrounding the Gunners.
Big Coutinho problem
Philippe Coutinho is believed to be one of Arsenal’s main transfer targets this summer but financing a deal could prove difficult.
Mundo Deportivo, cited by the Express, claims that the Brazilian’s big wage packet could prove to be a big stumbling block for the Gunners.
The playmaker is due to end his loan stint at Bayern next month and return to Barcelona, but the Catalan club are keen on selling him this summer to raise funds and reduce their wage bill.
Arsenal are offering €15m for young Sporting Lisbon winger Joelson Fernandes.
Portuguese outlet TVI24 report that Arsenal offered €15m for Fernandes, which the Portuguese club may consider despite his €45m release clause.
The 17-year-old is one of the most highly sought-after youngster’s in European football, with the tricky winger attracting no shortage of interest.

Edouard backed to succeed
Former Liverpool star John Barnes has backed Odsonne Edouard to succeed at Arsenal if the opportunity presents itself.
He told BonusCodeBets: “Odsonne Edouard is the top striker in Scotland and if (Pierre Emerick) Aubameyang was to leave Arsenal, then they will be looking at Edouard’s situation.
“However, if Aubameyang stays, then I don’t see him coming.
“I think if you look at any of the top players in Scotland that they could come down to England and be a success.
“He’s doing very well at the moment and could make the step up to the Premier League if he gets a move that’s right for him and works for how he plays.”
