Manchester United out of Europe barring a miracle, Chelsea complete comeback

All the big teams won their matches on the last day:

  • Manchester City defeated West Ham 3-1.
  • Arsenal beat Everton 2-1.
  • Liverpool won 2-0 against Wolves.
  • Tottenham triumphed 3-0 over Sheffield.
  • Chelsea edged Bournemouth 2-1.
  • Manchester United secured a 2-0 victory against Brighton.

The only top team to lose was Aston Villa, who were already assured of fourth place, suffering a heavy 5-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

London-based teams like Crystal Palace and Arsenal finished the season in top form, with six wins and a draw in their last seven matches.

The European competition spots were finalized, although the FA Cup final still holds the potential to shuffle some of the places:

Champions League:

  • Manchester City (champions)
  • Arsenal
  • Liverpool
  • Aston Villa

Europa League:

Conference League:

FA Cup implications

The FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United could impact these placements.

If City wins, Chelsea will move to the Europa League and Newcastle will enter the Conference League.

If United wins, they will play in the Europa League, and Chelsea will remain in the Conference League, leaving Newcastle without a European spot.

Relegation to the Championship

The relegation battle concluded without last-minute drama. Sheffield United, Burnley, and Luton Town were relegated and will play in the Championship next season. Despite point deductions for Nottingham Forest and Everton, they avoided the drop.

Leicester City and Ipswich Town have been promoted to the Premier League. The final promotion spot will be decided at Wembley between Leeds and Southampton.
