Leicester City have been relegated from the English Premier League seven years after winning the Sensations. The Foxes won 2-1 (1-0) against West Ham United in the season finale – but since Everton FC also won, the 2016 champion has to start the bitter journey to the championship.
The Toffees, on the other hand, prevented relegation from the elite league for the first time with a 1-0 (0-0) win against AFC Bournemouth. Everton was one of the founding members 30 years ago. Abdoulaye Doucoure scored the much-celebrated goal at Goodison Park (57′).

England’s star striker Harry Kane (2nd/69th), Pedro Porro (47th) and Lucas Moura (90th + 5th) scored the farewell goals for the north Londoners, Jack Harrison’s goal (67th) was not enough for Leeds . As usual, Koch was in the starting XI.

In a wild game, Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool FC scored 4: 4 (2: 2) against Southampton, who had already been relegated. Fifth place for the Reds was clear before the game, so team manager Klopp missed out on the Champions League for the first time since his first season at Liverpool (2015/16).
Champions Manchester City lost their 1000th Premier League game in club history 0-1 (0-0) at FC Brentford. Before the finals in the FA Cup and the Champions League, team manager Pep Guardiola only sent a B-Elf on the pitch. Chelsea FC around national player Kai Havertz ended the messed-up season after the 1-1 (1-1) win against fourth-placed Newcastle United in twelfth place.
Homegrown players Harvey Barnes (34′) and Wout Faes (62′) scored for the hosts in Leicester. Pablo Fornals (79th) shortened for the “Hammers”. After the final whistle, the Foxes around striker Jamie Vardy shed tears.
