This time around, Premier League's top four were decided on the final day.Manchester City have all but secured the fourth place, as their 1-1 draw with Swansea should be enough to put them out of range of their city rivals Manchester United, whose final match had to be postponed due to a security threat. Following the latest results, the Red Devils would need to win 29-0 in their final game in order to overtake City and ensure Champions League football next year.

Considering United's ineffectiveness that has troubled them all year long, it is hard to imagine anything remotely similar happening.

Leicester City have already been crowned champions earlier which made their encounter with Chelsea a rather dull affair that eventually ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

Meanwhile, the London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, who will now take up the second and the third place, had contrasting fortunes in their final matches – the Spurs were battered 5-1 by Newcastle and Olivier Giroud led the Gunners to an easy 4-0 over Aston Villa.

Newcastle United, Norwich, and Aston Villa relegated

There was nothing Newcastle, Norwich, or Aston Villa could do on the final day, as their fates had already been decided earlier in the season – they are all relegated to the Championship.

Aston Villa and Norwich (4-0 to Arsenal and 3-0 to Everton, respectively) ended their seasons with yet another unsurprising defeat. Considering their performances in the Premier League this year, it is not hard to see them struggle even in the Championshipunless a host of changes is implemented over the summer transfer window.
