Match reports from every Premier League game: Heartbreak for Tottenham as Arsenal clinch fourth place
Chelsea finish third with victory over Everton
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.
