The premier league 2021/22 season has finally ended with Manchester City being crowned champions on the final day. Here is the round up of the final day results.
Manchester City 3-2 Aston Villa
Manchester City staged a stunning late comeback with three goals in five minutes to beat Aston Villa and win the Premier League as their title chances looked to be slipping away amid dramatic scenes at Etihad Stadium.
Leicester 4-1 Southampton
Leicester secured eighth place in the Premier League with an entertaining final-day victory over Southampton at the King Power Stadium.
Goals from James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and two from substitute Ayoze Perez ensured James Ward-Prowse’s penalty for Saints was a mere consolation.
Burnley 1-2 Newcastle
Burnley were relegated from the Premier League on a dramatic final day as a home loss to Newcastle United condemned them to the Championship.
At the start of the day, Burnley were above Leeds on goal difference, but Jesse Marsch’s side won 2-1 at Brentford to end the Clarets’ six-year spell in the top flight.
Liverpool 3-1 Wolverhampton
Liverpool’s hopes of winning a quadruple were ended on the final day of the Premier League season as a tense victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers proved too little to deny Manchester City the title.
Brentford 1-2 Leeds
Leeds United claimed a dramatic added-time victory against nine-man Brentford to secure their Premier League survival.
Jack Harrison’s late strike from the edge of the penalty area sealed the win and in the end comfortably avoid the drop by three points as a result of Burnley’s defeat by Newcastle.
Norwich 0-5 Tottenham
Tottenham secured Champions League qualification, denying north London rivals Arsenal in the process, with an emphatic victory over already-relegated Norwich at Carrow Road.
Arsenal 5-1 Everton
Manager Mikel Arteta said he was “in pain” after Arsenal missed out on Champions League qualification despite a comfortable victory over Everton on the final day. Arteta’s side needed to beat Frank Lampard’s men and hope Tottenham lost at already relegated Norwich, but Spurs’ 5-0 win at Carrow Road meant the Gunners missed out on a top four-spot for a sixth successive season.
Brighton 3-1 Westham
West Ham manager David Moyes said he was “angry with his players” after their Europa League hopes were ended by defeat at Brighton.
The Hammers took the lead through Michail Antonio’s blistering first-half strike but will have to settle for a place in the Europa Conference League after Brighton staged a rousing second-half comeback at Amex Stadium.
Crystal Palace 1-0 Man Utd
Manchester United ended the season with their lowest ever Premier League points tally after being beaten at Crystal Palace in front of new manager Erik ten Hag.
Former United winger Wilfried Zaha scored the winning goal in the first half, latching onto a through ball and turning Diogo Dalot before drilling a low finish into the corner.
Chelsea 2-1 Watford
Ross Barkley’s late header ensured Chelsea finished the campaign with a narrow victory against relegated Watford at Stamford Bridge.
Barkley, making his 100th appearance for the club in all competitions, nodded Reece James’ cross past Hornets goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann to earn the Blues all three points – four minutes after Dan Gosling had grabbed a late equaliser for the Hornets.
