The Premier League put a bow on its remarkable season with a 100-point flourish from Man City, and a new single-season scoring mark.
It also waved goodbye to Arsene Wenger, at least at Arsenal. All that and more in the PL roundup.
Southampton 0-1 Manchester City — RECAP
Gabriel Jesus‘ stoppage time winner — man, does this club play to the final season’s whistle — made sure Man City added “first 100-point club” to its list of amazing accomplishments.
Liverpool 4-0 Brighton and Hove Albion — RECAP
Mohamed Salah set the new Premier League scoring record, while Dejan Lovren, Andy Robertson, and Dominic Solanke also scored to lead Liverpool back into the UEFA Champions League regardless of the final against Real Madrid.
Huddersfield Town 0-1 Arsenal — RECAP
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang became the fastest Gunner to 10 Premier League goals and notably has status as the last player to score in Arsene Wenger’s time at Arsenal.
Newcastle United 3-0 Chelsea — RECAP
Newcastle fans are dreaming of the transfer market after Rafa Benitez put another fine line on his resume with a demolition of the Blues. Ayoze Perez scored twice and Jonjo Shelvey also scored to clinch a Top Ten finish for the Magpies, who were in a relegation battle deep into the season. Chelsea is off to the Europa League, and in poor form ahead of next week’s FA Cup Final against Manchester United.
Swansea City 1-2 Stoke City — RECAP
Spirit remains at Stoke despite its relegation, as it dragged Swansea down with it. An early goal for Andy King was long forgotten after Badou Ndiaye and Peter Crouch gave the traveling Potters support a win in their final Premier League match for at least 15 months.
Tottenham Hotspur 5-4 Leicester City — RECAP
Don’t tell these clubs they had nothing to play for…
Harry Kane became the second Premier League player to score 30 goals this season, as Spurs trailed 1-0 and 3-1. They also were level at 4 following Jamie Vardy‘s second of the night when Kane completed his brace.
What a way to end a season.
West Ham United 3-1 Everton — RECAP
David Moyes‘ Irons hammered his former club, in doing so embarrassing former West Ham boss Sam Allardyce. The Toffees spent big this season and hired Big Sam to fix their season and lead them back into European contention. He largely failed. As for Moyes, has he reclaimed his Premier League mojo?
Burnley 1-2 Bournemouth — RECAP
Crystal Palace 2-0 West Bromwich Albion — RECAP
Manchester United 1-0 Watford — RECAP
