  • Misery unites fans as Stoke make exit with limp victory

The Argentine is yet to win a trophy as coach and question marks remain over how long the extremely talented young core of the Tottenham team will stay together whilst earning significantly less than their rivals in the top six.

Gabriel Jesus' stunning last-gasp victor gave Manchester City a narrow victory over Southampton, taking Pep Guardiola's side to 100 points for the season - a feat never previously achieved in the Premier League. "All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City's shirt!"

Arsenal are set for the biggest change of all as after 22 years in charge, Arsene Wenger has stepped aside as manager.

They also broke the league record for the most wins in a single season - 31.

Kane fires Spurs into 3rd spot
Two minutes later, Lamela pulled one back as he tapped the ball in from close range and reduced the deficit to 3-2. Third place was sealed after Harry Kane and Erik Lamela both scored twice while Christian Fuchs sored an own goal.

"The important thing is in the games we tried, we tried, we tried", Guardiola added.

Swansea needed a 10-goal swing - beating Stoke and seeing Southampton hammered by Manchester City - to stay up.

Since the highest goal scorer and the keeper with the highest number of clean sheets are given the golden boot and golden glove at the end of each season.

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

The Racing back-up took the place of Dan Carter - the victim of a hamstring injury - on the bench just before kick-off . But Sexton responded with a penalty and Iribaren's fourth penalty was cancelled out by Nacewa's boot.

Andy King's goal gave Swansea hope of an unlikely final-day comeback, but Badou Ndiaye and Peter Crouch scored to ensure already relegated Stoke would not end the season bottom.

The champions' first meaningful chance of the game came in the 61st minute when Raheem Sterling thumped the ball against the post after it fell to him kindly from a deflected Kevin De Bruyne cross. Let us know what you think in the comments section.

Gabriel Jesus, on as a substitute, found space to lift the ball over goalkeeper Alex McCarthy in the fourth minute of additional time, prompting wild celebrations among City's players.

City are due to celebrate their title success with an open-top bus parade through the streets of Manchester today.
