So it didn't matter that Southampton conceded late to lose 1-0 to City, although that did mean Pep Guardiola's side became the first team to post 100 points in a Premier League season.

Crystal Palace condemned already-relegated West Brom to last place with a 2-0 win at Selhurst Park. Blues' fans watched as the Magpies won 3-0, as Liverpool ran riot early to clinch the final Champions League place (fourth place, 75 points) with a 4-0 win.

They also broke the league record for the most wins in a single season - 31. Cardiff City was promoted to the Premier League.

"It was an emotional day", Swansea defender Angel Rangel said.

"It was an emotional day - all we wanted was to win for the fans", he said.

Come out to the Old Town Pub in Bordentown on Saturday, May 26, with myself and the crew of Box to Box Football, to watch the UEFA Champions League Final.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger signed off after 22 years and 1235 games in charge with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbing the victor. Then Stoke scored twice in their final Premier League game and that settled the relegation battle.

Gabriel Jesus' goal at the 90+4 mark gave Manchester City a 1-0 win over Southampton.

Vitor Belfort Makes It Official, Leaves His Gloves In The Octagon
After the loss, former UFC champion Belfort placed his gloves down on the mat to signify he was retiring from the sport. The Brazilian legend was on the final fight of his UFC contract and is not expected to re-sign with the promotion.

"And our rhythm was not so high because of course the last week we trained not too much".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the final scorer of the Wenger era, sliding in to convert Aaron Ramsey's cross in the 38th minute for the only goal.

"Whether that is managing or not".

Given the fact that they've been away from White Hart Lane, I think anywhere in the top four should be considered a success.

There was never much chance of that but City's thrilling season was capped by another piece of individual brilliance, with Gabriel Jesus producing a superb lobbed victor in the 94th minute to spark wild celebrations.

It was Sir Alex Ferguson's United who previously held the record, having finished 18 points ahead of second-placed Arsenal in the 1999-2000 season, and City needed Fergie time to finally find a breakthrough deep into stoppage time at St Mary's. Jesus removed his shirt and twirled it in celebration in front of City's supporters.

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.
