Premier League: Results, Final Table Standings, Who are Top-Four & Six
|Premier League LIVE: Latest Results, Final Standings, Who are 'Top-Four'|
Remarkable run-ins from both Chelsea and Liverpool saw them take control of third and fourth place, while Leicester City endured a nightmare sense of deja vu.
Leicester twice squandered the lead to lose 4-2 at home to Tottenham on Sunday as their Champions League dream was shattered. Jamie Vardy converted two penalties to give the Foxes 1-0 and 2-1 leads and, with Chelsea losing at Aston Villa, that would have been enough for Leicester to claim fourth spot.

Premier League - Final Table Standings
|Final 2020/21 Premier League Table|
EICESTER QUALIFY FOR EUROPA LEAGUE, SPURS MAKE CONFERENCE LEAGUE
Result: Leicester 2-4 Spurs
An absolute last-act implosion from the Foxes means that their charge for the top four ends in disaster - but their loss means it is Tottenham's gain!
Spurs, with some late heroics from Gareth Bale, finish seventh and will take part in the first-ever Europa Conference League next season.
Harry Kane - who may not be here to see it - grins like he has just won the lottery. West Ham sit between them, after their victory over Southampton, and will play in the Europa League too.
CHELSEA QUALIFY FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Result: Villa 2-1 Chelsea
Thomas Tuchel's side lose at the last to Aston Villa - but they have still made the top four. They will not need to beat Manchester City next weekend to assure their spot at the high table.
They have only been saved by the work of Tottenham elsewhere however, and that will be a concern for the German. With that European date with destiny looming, he has to refocus his side.
LIVERPOOL QUALIFY FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Result: Liverpool 2-0 Palace
The Reds keep their place in the European top tier!
Jurgen Klopp's side triumph thanks to a Sadio Mane double, and send Roy Hodgson packing in his final game with Crystal Palace. Fears the old Anfield supremo could spring a nasty surprise were unfounded in the end.
Mohamed Salah and James Milner both look triumphant. It is a fantastic result to end a fantastic final charge.
Man City 5-0 Everton
Sergio Aguero arrived a relative unknown and leaves arguably the greatest overseas player the Premier League has ever seen.
Manchester City are champions again and their celebrations will last long into the night at the Etihad Stadium today.
Pep Guardiola may be a little more reserved though - after all, the big one is still to come.
