Manchester United and Chelsea football clubs sealed the Champions League places on Sunday as Bournemouth and Watford fell on a dramatic final day of the longest Premier League season.
Liverpool were crowned champions last month but there were many issues at stake in the final 90 minutes of a campaign that started on 9 August last year and was interrupted by a three-month coronavirus shutdown.
United finished third after a nervy 2-0 win in a Champions League shootout against Leicester while Chelsea ended in fourth spot after beating Wolves 2-0 thanks to two goals on the stroke of half time.
At the other end of the table, Bournemouth and Watford dropped to the Championship while Aston Villa fans breathed a huge sigh of relief after they got the draw they needed at West Ham.
Leicester, in fifth spot, will play in the Europa League next season where they will be joined by Tottenham, who drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace to leapfrog Wolves.
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea required just a draw to seal Champions League qualification for next term and two goals in first-half stoppage time gave them breathing space.
