Swansea City will join West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City in the Championship next season, with their relegation from the Premier League confirmed on Sunday.

4 - Dunk is the only player with more than one own goal this season and racked up a remarkable four - against Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Swansea - to equal the Premier League record set by Martin Skrtel for Liverpool in 2013-14.

By matching rivals Manchester United's result on the final day of the season, they maintained their 19-point winning margin - the biggest in the Premier League era, overtaking a benchmark that has stood for 18 years.

City have finished the campaign on +79, beating the old record of +71 set by Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea title-winning side back in the 2009-10 season.

Substitute Gabriel Jesus's 93rd-minute lob - virtually the last kick of the season at St Mary's - ensured City became the first English top-flight team to amass 100 points.

"There were two scenarios if we went down or we stayed up".

Victory was not enough to take Liverpool up to third place, which was claimed by Tottenham with a stunning 5-4 win over Leicester in what may be their final game at Wembley before moving to their new stadium at White Hart Lane.

"We showed the kind of football we couldn't show the last few games".

Chelsea is off to the Europa League, and in poor form ahead of next week's FA Cup Final against Manchester United.

The win breaks our Club record of 31 wins in a single season, which we managed under Kevin Keegan in 2001-02 in a 46-game campaign in the second tier of English football.

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.

Swansea paid tribute to long-serving custodians Angel Rangel and Leon Britton before kickoff. I would imagine the club have had discussions probably ever since I walked through the door in terms of what they would do.

West Brom's stay in the Premier League ended with a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, for whom Wilfried Zaha and Patrick van Aanholt scored.
