Gareth Bale's late wonder goals have spurred Tottenham on all season and put them in contention for Champions League qualification at the start of today - but even one of those wasn't enough to secure a top four finish for his side.
While Spurs won 1-0 at home against Sunderland, the three points they picked up were not enough due to the result at St James' Park.
A goal from Laurent Koscielny was the difference as Arsenal also won 1-0 against a lacklustre Newcastle side.
It meant that Arsenal finished one point ahead of their bitter rivals in the final standings.
Meanwhile, Chelsea secured third place in the league with a 2-1 home win over Everton.
It was a final day of the season packed with goals, the most notable match of all coming in Sir Alex Ferguson's last game. With Manchester United winning 5-2 at the Hawthorns, West Brom were to stage a dramatic comeback, with the game ending 5-5.
