Liverpool into Champions League, Man City reaches 100 points

Another Chelsea record to fall was the 103 goals amassed by Carlo Ancelotti's 2009/2010 title winners as City's free-scoring season took them to 106 at an average of almost 2.8 a game.

Dejan Lovren added a second before Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson scored their first goals for Liverpool to complete a routine victory in its last match before playing the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26. But even that was unlikely to change.

Burnley v Bournemouth, Newcastle United v Chelsea.

Carlos Carvalhal - nearly certainly in charge of Swansea for the final time - said a football miracle was needed, but there seemed a chance when King slotted home after 14 minutes and the Stoke defence seemed likely to concede at every opportunity. And that's exactly what happened.

The 24-year-old has made a big impression since his £35million arrival from Benfica, featuring in all but the last two games of their triumphant Premier League campaign.

Liverpool would pull away and win 4-0, sealing their top four spot and clinching a Champions League berth. Tottenham Hotspur are third in the table but Liverpool have a chance to overtake them.

England striker Marcus Rashford scored the only goal in midfielder Michael Carrick's final match before retiring to join the club's coaching staff.

After Chelsea failed to beat Huddersfield Wednesday, it meant that Tottenham had locked up a top four place.

That smashed the previous best run of 13 games in a single season set by Chelsea past year and Arsenal in 2001/02.

On the other end, Swansea needed to hit the ground running and they did in the beginning. "Premier League, 100 points, it's a massive achievement". Still needing a double digit change in goal differential, it was going to be tough.

Swansea ended the season with just 28 goals scored, good for joint worst with Huddersfield.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes it will be quite some time before any team beats the 100 points his side reached in the final minute of their triumphant Premier League season.

It also waved goodbye to Arsene Wenger, at least at Arsenal.

So that is the Premier League season.

Mohamed Salah broke the Premier League scoring record for a 38-game season as Liverpool qualified for the Champions League on a busy final day of the season.

Crystal Palace condemned already-relegated West Brom to last place with a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park.

"We'll have to wait and see. Wins at home, wins away - everything was ideal this season and we finished the way we deserved to finish".
