After once again falling short in the league again, Arsene Wenger may have found the player who can lead Arsenal to their first Premier League triumph in 12 years.

Arsenal finished the Premier League season in second place after Tottenham suffered an incredible meltdown against Newcastle to hand the Gunners supremacy of North London

Arsenal's 4-0 victory over Tottenham heralded the 21st straight 'St Totteringham's Day', the name given to the date Spurs can no longer mathematically finish above Spurs.

The shock shake-up in the Premier League standings made for jubilant scenes on the Emirates pitch as Arsenal thanked their fans for - at time temperamental - support throughout a difficult campaign.

However despite the ectacsy of another St Totteringham's Day celebration, it was a five-year-old boy who stole the show.

Enzo Cazorla, son of Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, was filmed juggling with a ball during the on-pitch celebrations at the Emirates.

 At one point in the one-man highlight reel, Enzo nonchalantly chips the ball over Joel Campbell who attempts in vain to slide tackle the five-year-old.

Despite an up-lifting end to the campaign, the 2015-16 Premier League season will largely be regarded as a failure to many Arsenal supporters.

Arsene Wenger faced a number of fan protests calling for him to leave the club, with his transfer policy a particular bone of contention for frustrated Gunners.

With the addition of a new central midfielder the main priority for Arsene Wenger, perhaps the Frenchman will consider signing up the five-year-old prodigy.
