Just like that, 38 thrilling weeks of football is a thing of the past.

The 2021-22 Premier League season is officially over following a hectic Championship Sunday with several teams playing for something.

At the top of the table was a narrow battle for the championship. Manchester City had a one-point lead over Liverpool entering Sunday's games and simply needed a win to secure their fourth title in the last five years.

It didn't look good when they trailed Aston Villa 2-0 with 20 minutes to play, but there's just something about City on the final gameday. The Sky Blues came back and won 3-2 to claim the title, which was huge considering Liverpool beat Wolves 3-1.

Then a few spots below lied Tottenham and Arsenal. After losing the advantage for a UEFA Champions League spot, the Gunners needed to handle Everton and hope already relegated Norwich City pulled off a miracle against Spurs. The former happened, as Arsenal thrashed the Toffees 5-1. However, Spurs were also relentless, winning 5-0 to claim fourth place.

Despite losing, Manchester United also booked a spot in the UEFA Europa League to join Arsenal after West Ham also lost. The Hammers finished seventh for a spot in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

The last major battle on the table was for relegation. Everton had confirmed their safety with a comeback win against Crystal Palace on Thursday, so it was between Leeds United and Burnley for 18th place. Jack Harrison scored a late goal in stoppage time to secure Leeds' spot in the PL while Burnley fell to Newcastle. The Clarets will join Norwich and Watford in the EFL Championship next season.
