That meant Chelsea will not be playing in Europe's elite competition for the second season in three years.

There had been a slim chance that Chelsea could leapfrog the Merseysiders if they won, Liverpool lost and there was a huge swing in goal difference - but Antonio Conte's side suffered a humiliating loss at Newcastle.

City also added another landmark by winning the league by a record 19 points from local rivals Manchester United.

Hodgson secured Palace's safety with a game to spare. Mohamed Salah's Premier Leaguerecord 32nd goal in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Brighton sealed a top-four finish and earned him the Golden Boot.

- Two more players joined the 100-goal club during the season.

A sensational run to the Champions League final, including a 5-1 quarter-final humiliation of City, has proven Liverpool's ability to beating anyone on their day under Jurgen Klopp. He also became the first African player to score 30 times in a single Premier League season.

Chelsea ended the season without even a whimper, and in the Europa League.

United have been good enough for second best to City this season, but have failed to enthral their supporters with many unhappy at manager Jose Mourinho's brand of football.

"OK, we are 25 points in front so it's hard to say he was hard (to play against) in the end - but he was because they beat us".

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. "I think it's a record that will stay long".

This win lifted City to 100 points, making them the first team to ever reach the milestone.

Pep Guardiola's Sky Blues recorded 32 victories in the league this season. 32!
