Home / Observatory / Sport / Video: English Premier League: Final Day Roundup


We give you a condensed roundup of all the action from an action-packed final day of the English Premier League (EPL) and don't forget to check out all the highlights and goals in the video below.

Mohamed Salah broke the Premier League scoring record (for a 38-game season) and, with goals from Dejan Lovren, Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson, helped Liverpool finish fourth and qualify for a spot in next seasons Champions League.

Salah found the net 32 times this season, surpassing such greats as Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez, ultimately earning him the Premier League player of the year honours.

Liverpool needed only a point to stay clear of Chelsea but it ultimately made no difference as the Blues slumped to a 3-0 loss at Newcastle for a fifth-place finish. The victory was not enough to take Liverpool up to third place though, that was given to Tottenham after their 5-4 win over Leicester in what was likely their final game at Wembley before moving to their new stadium at White Hart Lane.

Kane, who scored twice, ended the season with 30 goals, which makes this the only 38-game season in which two players have scored 30 or more goals.

With the win over Chelsea, Rafael Benitez's Newcastle finished 10th in the table after Dwight Gayle's opener and Ayoze Perez' brace sunk Antonio Conte's side.

On the other side of the table, Swansea needed to beat Stoke and Southampton to lose to Manchester City with a huge 10-goal swing to avoid being relegated. After taking a 1-goal lead, Swansea eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat and a place in the Championship next season.

Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt scored a goal each for Crystal Palace, thus securing their opponents, West Brom, relegation from the Premier League.

With Manuel Lanzini scoring twice, David Moyes' West Ham managed a 3-1 win against Sam Allardyce's Everton.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal in Manchester United's victory over Watford, while Callum Wilson's 93rd-minute strike gave Bournemouth a 2-1 comeback win at Burnley.

Wenger's final farewell

It was all smiles for Arsene Wenger as Arsenal was victorious at Huddersfield after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's first-half goal. This brought Wenger's 22-season Arsenal career to an end with both sets of fans applauded him in the 22nd minute of the game while two planes flew overhead, dragging messages of support for the Frenchman.

He leaves behind quite a legacy, with 1,235 games across all competitions, 828 of them in the EPL. He won 17 trophies; three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, including two Doubles, with his most memorable achievement that stunning unbeaten season in 2003-04. His longevity in the EPL will perhaps never be matched as next in line is Bournemouth's Eddie Howe an incredible 16 years behind Wenger.

Manchester City's "magnificent seven"

Gabriel Jesus scored in injury-time to dispatch Southampton but, more significantly, made the champions, Manchester City, the first team in Premier League history to reach 100 points.

Record Man City
Most points 100 95 
Most wins 32 30

They also finished with Phil Foden as the youngest player to receive a Premier League winner's medal at 17 years 350 days old.

For just the third time in Premier League history, all three promoted teams avoided relegation, with Newcastle finishing 10th, Brighton 15th and Huddersfield 16th.

With the league done, all eyes turn to Saturday and a shot for either Chelsea or Manchester United to take home the FA Cup.
