Home (Position in Table) vs Away (Position in Table) ~ Score
Burnley (7th) vs Bournemouth (12th) ~ 1-2
A match with little effect as both clubs had already clinched safety for the following English Premier League season. Bournemouth though had a period in the season where many people doubted if they’d be able to stay above the relegation zone, but they did. The hosts would take the early lead in the 39thminute when a cross fell to the foot of Chris Wood who’d one touch the goal in. In the second half the hosts would start to put pressure on the back line of Burnley and after a sloppy pass, Joshua King ended up with the ball in the box before smashing into the far top corner for an equalizer in the 74thminute. Burnley’s defensive errors would cost them the game when Defoe picked off an easy error from the defense, then squaring it to Callum Wilson in the 93rdminute for the winner.
Crystal Palace (11th) vs West Bromwich Albion (20th) ~ 2-0
Crystal Palace early in the season and half way through the season found themselves in a relegation battle. But after a couple solid run of victories for the club they managed to finish in 11thplace with 38 points. West Bromwich on the other hand were very poor throughout the season and found themselves at the bottom of the table with only 31 points. With Wilfred Zaha scoring in the 70thminute and Patrick Van Aanholt scoring in the 78thminute, the defeat made West Brom’s eight-year stunt in the Premier League end.
Huddersfield Town (16th) vs Arsenal (6th) ~ 0-1
Huddersfield Town will get to enjoy another season in the Premier League after managing to stay above the bottom three with a crucial win coming against Watford and two draws with Chelsea and Manchester City in the final weeks. Arsenal will now go two seasons in a row without Champion’s League Football after finishing 6thplace in very common fashion. In the final match day, the Gunners got the victory after Aubameyang scored in the 38thminute.
Liverpool (4th) vs Bright & Hove Albion (15th) ~ 4-0
Liverpool’s EPL campaign wasn’t the most promising at times throughout the season, but their Champion’s League status is one to note. Finishing in fourth place in the Premier League they will already qualify for the Premier League, but now they are in position to win the Champion’s League when they face Real Madrid in the finals on May 26th. Brighton cannot have much to be disappointed about after finishing above relegation in their first season back to league after being promoted to the top league in England. The Mohamed Salah show may never stop and in the 26thminute he opened up the scoring, with the next goal for the Reds coming in the 40thminute when Dejan Lovern headed home a cross from Robertson. The scoring didn’t stop there either, Solanke and Robertson would both score in the second half to give the Reds an impressive 4-0 victory.
Manchester United (2nd) vs Watford (14th) ~ 1-0
Manchester United didn’t have much to play for as they’ve already qualified for the Champion’s League next season, but now will have a busy summer window. Manchester United would get all three points after a long ball fell to Juan Mata who scored it sideways to Marcus Rashford for an easy tap in.
Newcastle United (10th) vs Chelsea (5th) ~ 3-0
Newcastle United have made their comeback into the Premier League with style finishing in the top third and get an impressive victory for the final match of the season. Chelsea will now be without Champion’s League football after falling into fifth place meaning Europa League will have to be their European football. Newcastle would start the scoring in the 23rdminute when a deflected shot fell to Dwight Gayle for an easy tap in goal. In the second half Ayoze Perez would take over the scoring for the home side, netting his first goal in the 59thminute and his second in the 63rdminute. The match would end 3-0 as Newcastle United showed their dominance and putting more odds that Conte will be sacked as Chelsea’s manager.
Southampton (17th) vs Manchester City (1st) ~ 0-1
Southampton can consider themselves lucky to stay above the bottom three after a very important victory against Swansea City saved their season. Manchester City showed the importance of spending millions every window as they powered through the season netting 100 points. The 3 points wouldn’t come to City till the 94thminute when Gabriel Jesus would score the all-important goal to get them to the 100-point mark.
Swansea City (18th) vs Stoke City (19th) ~ 1-2
Swansea City and Stoke City are paying the price for continuous poor after poor seasons. Stoke City have managed to stay in the Premier League in the past by playing ugly football and stay in the middle bottom half of the table. This season their tactics haven’t worked and their spending on big name players proved to be disastrous too. In a match that didn’t have much meaning more than pride for the players Swansea opened up the scoring in the 14thminute when Andy King scored. Stoke City would knock back two goals with the first coming in the 31stminute from Badou Ndiaye and the second in the 41stfrom Peter Crouch.
Tottenham Hotspurs (3rd) vs Leicester City (9th) ~ 5-4
Tottenham’s impressive building of a club continues as they managed to finish in the top four and secure European football. Leicester City will probably never be able to repeat their fate of winning the Premier League and now will have to be a club who fights for a Europa League spot. In the final match of the season it would come down to Harry Kane in the 76thminute when he picked the ball up at the top of the eighteen and curled the ball into the side netting.
West Ham United (13th) vs Everton (8th) ~ 3-1
David Moyes completed his task when being hired as the manager of West Ham part way through the season, keep the club up and he did. Everton’s squad has a lot of potential for next season but will be losing Wayne Rooney. West Ham took the lead in the first half with a goal coming from Manuel Lanzini then Arnautovic struck a goal in the 63rdminute. Everton would get a goal back in the 74thminute from Oumar Niasse in the 74thminute but the home club would seal the victory in the 82ndminute when Lanzini scored in the 82ndminute.
