The Gunners who lost 3-0 at Manchester City on Wednesday, took the lead through Nicolas Pepe in the second half. However, Lewis Dunk forced the ball in for 1-1, before Neal Maupay grabbed the winner late on.
However, they failed to find their post-COVID form after the restart and lost out to Manchester United and Chelsea, who will represent England in the Champions League along with Manchester City and Liverpool.
In the early kick off, Manchester City were held to a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United. Chelsea lost 1-0 to West Ham at Stamford Bridge, with Aaron Cresswell scoring the only goal in the second half.

"I say congratulations to Manchester City and we will fight again next season for this trophy."
The victory maintained Barcelona's 100% start in Group C and extended their lead over City to five points. And it was another miserable return to the Nou Camp for Guardiola.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Klopp was quoted by France 24 as saying: "Only City can stop City from wining the Premier League, to be honest. "We have to play our own game and get as many points as possible."
Last season, Manchester City beat Liverpool to the Premier League title on the last day with Jurgen Klopp's men losing only one match throughout the term. They have also not lost any game this season drawing only one after 12 games played.
City levelled when Sergi Roberto lost possession, allowing Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling to combine for Ilkay Gundogan to apply a simple finish.
