Arsenal's hope to play in Champions League next season dashed while Pep Guardiola won his fourth EPL titles.


The final round in the Premier League did not see any unexpected results. Arsenal which was already two points adrift from Spurs, easily hammered Everton 5-1 at their home turf but it was not enough to bump up their position to the fourth. Their contender, Spurs also ran rampant against Norwich City and won 5-0 on the road.


The Gunners opened the scoring through a penalty from Gabriel Martinelli before Eddie Nketiah once again scored to add his tally this season. Danny Van De Beek managed to reduce The Toffees' deficit in the game before the interval. In the second half, Mikel Arteta's side extended their lead as Cedric Soares, Gabriel Magalhaes and Martin Odegaard bagged one goal each.


Arsenal vs Everton 5-1

Goals: Gabriel Martinelli (27), Eddie Nketiah (31), Cedric Soares (56), Gabriel Magalhaes (59), Martin Odegaard (82); Danny Van De Beek (45+2)

Arsenal: Aaron Ramsdale – Rob Holding, Gabriel Magalhaes, Nuno Tavares, Cedric Soares -  Mohammed Elneny, Granit Xhaka (Albert Lokonga 63), Bukayo Saka (Nicolas Pepe 78), Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli – Eddie Nketiah (Alexander Lacazette 67)

Everton: Asmir Begovic –  Jonjo Kenny, Braithwaite, Michael Keane, Alex Iwobi, Mason Holgate – Demarai Gray, Abdoulaye Drocoure (Danny Van de Beek 37), Tom Davies (Isaac Price 78), Delle Alli (Anthony Gordon 67) – Dominic Calvert Lewin


Meanwhile, Manchester City dramatically secured their EPL title to sum up their rather disappointing season. Guardiola's men smashed Aston Villa 3-2 despite being two goals behind. Poland international Matty Cash gave The Villans a lead in the first half. Next, Barcelona loanee Phillipe Coutinho who just agreed his move to Birmingham next season doubled their lead on 69th minute. However, seven minutes later, the wind began to change as The Citizens broke the deadlock. It was Ilkay Gundogan's brace plus Rodri's long range shot which overturned the scoresheet. It is the fourth Premier league for Pep Guardiola since his arrival in 2016.


Based on the final standings, The Champions League berths belong to Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham. It will stay the same even if The Reds wins the UCL this weekend. Meanwhile, The Gunners and Manchester United go to Europa League, a real setback for CR7 for sure but a slight improvement for Arsenal's young guns who missed European campaign this season. Last but not least, the Europa League semifinalist, West Ham have to play in Conference League in 2022/23.


At the bottom three, Burnley have to end their EPL campaign this season despite already signing Dutch international, Wout Weighorst, since they were beaten 1-2 by Newcastle United. At the same time, Leeds managed to survive after snatching a 2-1 win over Brentford. The Clarets will go down alongside Watford and Norwich City.
