Liverpool have clinched the EPL's final Champions League spot, Swansea's relegation was
confirmed and champions Manchester City finished with 100 points on a goal-packed final
day of the season.

Mohamed Salah scored his 32nd league goal of the campaign as Liverpool beat Mat Ryan's
Brighton & Hove Albion 4-0, securing fourth place, five points above Chelsea, who were
beaten 3-0 at Newcastle.

Swansea needed a miracle to stay up at the expense of Southampton but their 2-1 defeat at
home to already-relegated Stoke put paid to any dreams of survival.

Manchester City finished with a record points haul after a 1-0 win at Southampton, leaving
them 19 points ahead of Manchester United, who beat Watford 1-0, with Tottenham, who
edged out Leicester City 5-4, four points further back in third.

Liverpool warmed up for this month's Champions League final against Real Madrid with
goals from Salah - who won the Golden Boot as league top scorer - Dejan Lovren, Dominic
Solanke and Andrew Robertson sealing a place in next season's Champions League.

"Not many people would say we would get to the Champions League final, we are
progressing and learning from the manager, we have a good chance of winning trophies,"
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said.

"City have been amazing this season, they thoroughly deserve it but next year we want to be
closer to them and who knows, we could win it."

That result rendered Chelsea's match at Newcastle irrelevant to the Champions League battle
and Antonio Conte's side went down 3-0 at St James' Park.

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

But Xherdan Shaqiri's penalty gave Stoke victory at Swansea and the Welsh side will join
Stoke and West Brom in the Championship next season.

"It was an emotional day," Swansea defender Angel Rangel said. "We knew it was impossible
to stay up. We lost.

"It's been the hardest season. From start to finish we have been down there. It's been
unfortunate, because it's such a great club. We need to build again."

Gabriel Jesus grabbed the only goal deep in injury time to give Manchester City the win at
Southampton, who nevertheless stayed up.
