Review
This was our last game of the season, even though most of the rest of the legue had already finished theirs. West Ham needed two wins to stay up and they got their points here - with a 19th-second goal from Leroy Rosenoir - and needed a win away at Liverpool to avoid relegation but lost that 5-1 to go down. Then of course came the last day of the season. Liverpool in second place were at home to leaders Arsenal. Liverpool were three points ahead with a +4 Goal difference, and Arsenal won 2-0 at Anfield to win the title on goals scored.
