Chelsea secured a place in next season’s Champions League despite losing 2-1 to Aston Villa after Tottenham Hotspur beat Leicester City 4-2 at the King Power Stadium.
The Blues had started the final day of the Premier League season in the third spot, knowing victory over Aston Villa would guarantee a place in the UEFA Champions League next season.
However, things got twisted for the Blues and needed their cross-town rivals, Tottenham, to do the job they failed to do themselves.
Liverpool, who started the final day of the Premier League in the fourth position, had to beat Crystal Palace to knowing the game between Spurs and Leicester could go either way. The Reds did justice and beat the Eagles 2-0 courtesy of a brace by Sadio Mane at Anfield to secure Champions League position next season against all odds.
The new Premier League champions, Manchester City, sent an even stronger language to Chelsea who they face on May 29, 2021, in the UCL final, putting five past Carlo Ancelloti’s Everton.
The win was sweeter as the Argentine goal poacher, Sergio Kun Aguero scored his final brace for Manchester City as he calls time on his adventure at the Etihad.
West Ham outdid themselves as David Moyes guided them to a spot in the Europa League for the 2021/2022 season after they beat Southampton 3-0 to finish above Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
