It’s once again time to appreciate the most incompetent teams in the Premier League, from those who throw the ball straight to opposition to goalkeepers who can’t keep goal Welcome to the Guardian’s fourth annual index of ineptitude, its directory of disappointment and catalogue of clumsiness. Towards the end of the season, it is traditional to pick out the best the league has had to offer.

Alexandre Lacazette’s late double seals Arsenal rout against West Ham

Until the final 10 minutes it was tempting to wonder whether a few Arsenal supporters might even be impertinent enough to subject the tall, grey-haired man on the touchline – hands on hips, elbows out, wearing a worried look that has been seen here too often in recent years – to a smattering of boos at the final whistle.

Andy Carroll’s late strike for West Ham saves Joe Hart and stuns Stoke
