Leicester and Leeds relegated, pioneer Everton maintains in Premier League
Everton will also play in the Premier League next season. Only city rivals Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea otherwise made it through all the seasons since the thorough reform of the English league in 1992.
After an hour, Abdoulaye Doucouré became the savior of Liverpool’s second club. The Malian volleyed in the liberating 1-0 against Bournemouth, after which it was nail-biting for more than half an hour.
As a result, two former champions drooped in disappointment. Leicester City and Leeds United were relegated from the Premier League.
Leicester City, the great sensation of seven years ago, did win 2-1 against Conference League finalist West Ham United. And for a long time, veteran Jamie Vardy’s team was allowed to hope for a miracle due to the tie at Everton.
30 goals for Kane
Leeds United, England’s last champion before the introduction of the Premier League, seemed to have quickly given up hope against Tottenham Hotspur (1-4). Harry Kane made two and finishes six goals behind phenom Erling Haaland on 30 goals.
Manchester United secured third place through a win over Fulham (2-1). After Kenny Tete’s opening goal, Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty, then Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes repaired the deficit and gave United the win.
Cody Gakpo made his seventh for Liverpool, in the spectacular season finale on visit to previously relegated Southampton (4-4).
