Unai Emery has had a mixed first season at Arsenal.

Emery led his side to 70 points in the league, seven points more than the season prior.

However, it wasn't enough to secure Champions League qualification.

Arsenal eventually missed out on the top four in agonising fashion, finishing one point below bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

But, despite that disappointment, they still have a chance to finish the season with silverware and secure qualification to next season's Champions League.

The Gunners meet Chelsea in the Europa League final next week in a game that will make or break this season.

With one game of their season to go, who have been Arsenal's standout performers? And who have struggled?

One Arsenal fan split the players into groups based on their performances this season and took to Reddit to share his opinion.

And this is what they came up with...

Unai Emery could yet lead Arsenal to Champions League qualification

Excellent: Bernd Leno, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Above average: Aaron Ramsey, Laurent Koscielny, Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Average: Saed Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira, Sokratis, Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka, Unai Emery

Below average: Petr Cech, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil, Alex Iwobi

Petr Cech is placed in the 'below average' category

Less terrible: Shkodran Mustafi

Terrible: Carl Jenkinson, Mohamed Elneny, Stephan Lichtsteiner

Injured: Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Eddie Nketiah

Denis Suarez: Denis Suarez

So according to user Burakalaka99, Leno, Lacazette and Aubameyang have been the club's standout performers this season.

There's not too much argument there.

Koscielny, Ramsey and Maitland-Niles head the best of the rest, but it seems that the Arenal fan has not been particularly impressed with anyone else.

Emery makes it to the 'Average' group alongside new signings Sokratis, Torreira and Guendouzi.

Mesut Ozil hasn't had his best season for Arsenal

Ozil is Arsenal's most high profile player but he's judged to have a 'below average' season.

Somehow, Mustafi has just escaped the 'Terrible category', which features Jenkinson and Elneny.

Suarez has played so little but when he has played he's been anonymous, meaning he's given a whole new category by himself at the bottom of the pile.
