  • THE BATTLE FOR THE TOP FOUR: Arsenal remain in the top four despite that goal - four minutes of injury time to play at St James' Park.
    5/19/2013 4:49:22 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1: Walcott surely to make it 2-0 to Arsenal, but in on goal he somehow pushes his shot onto the post. What a miss.
    5/19/2013 4:50:10 PM
  • GOAL - West Brom 5-5 Man United - Romelu Lukaku Anyone submitting their match reports early may come to regret it today, Lukaku gets his hat trick. This is the first ever 5-5 in Premier League history.
    5/19/2013 4:50:23 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1: Two minutes to play at St James' Park - Arsenal just hoofing it up field.
    5/19/2013 4:51:13 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1: Wenger barking directions - just a minute to play.
    5/19/2013 4:52:06 PM
  • FULL-TiME - Southampton 1-1 Stoke Michael Owen barely got a touch of the ball in his final professional match, both teams have finished comfortably in mid-table.
    5/19/2013 4:52:50 PM
  • Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1: Surely Arsenal are going to hold on. The four minutes are up and the visitors have a corner.
    5/19/2013 4:53:09 PM
  • FULL-TIME - Tottenham 1 Sunderland 0: It's all over at Tottenham. They've won.
    5/19/2013 4:53:35 PM
  • FULL-TIME - Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1: And it's all over at Newcastle as well - Arsenal have won and secure fourth place!
    5/19/2013 4:54:19 PM
  • FULL-TIME - Man City 2-3 Norwich That's it for a very strange season for City, outplayed at home. This is the first time any away team has scored three at the Etihad in the Premier League.
    5/19/2013 4:54:34 PM
  • THE BATTLE FOR THE TOP FOUR: Arsenal have done it then. With Gareth Bale scoring late on for Spurs, it was a nervy end for the Gunners but they held out against a lacklustre Newcastle side.
    5/19/2013 4:56:01 PM
  • FULL-TIME - West Ham 4-2 Reading A strong finish to the season for the East Londoners, Sam Allardyce will be pleased that they could win in style in front of their home fans.
    5/19/2013 4:56:04 PM
  • GOAL - Swansea - 0-3 Fulham - Urby Emanuelson A goal on the stroke of the final whistle and Fulham have shocked the South Wales side at the Liberty here. Swansea have not been on form at all since their League Cup victory in February.
    5/19/2013 4:57:41 PM
  • Full-Time Swansea 0-3 Fulham And it's all over there...
    5/19/2013 4:58:05 PM
  • FULL-TIME - Liverpool 1-0 QPR Jamie Carragher completes his final game for the club, it is a day full of emotion for the defender as he finishes an illustrious career. I'm sure Brendan Rodgers would have liked to have scored more against an awful QPR side, though.
    5/19/2013 4:59:42 PM
  • FULL-TIME - West Brom - 5-5 Man United Well that was surely one hell of a way to end it for Fergie, although he won't be too pleased with the way his side threw away a three goal lead. It was a great game for the neutral though and would be contender for first place on Match of the Day had this not been such a dramatic day.
    5/19/2013 5:01:54 PM
  • FULL-TIME Wigan 2-2 Aston Villa Wigan bow out of the Premier League with a draw at home, their fans can be proud of the way that they defied relegation for seven years on the bounce, they will be back.....
    5/19/2013 5:03:27 PM
  • FULL-TIME - Chelsea 2-1 Everton It was relatively easy for Chelsea in the end. All the hype for a potential play-off was quashed with a win at home. Both managers will depart their clubs going in different directions; Moyes is off to Man United, while Rafa Benitez's future is uncertain...
    5/19/2013 5:06:32 PM
  • PLAYER REACTION Theo Walcott on Spurs not making the final Champions League spot, "I'd like to say it's a shame, but it's not really.." Lovely words, Theo.
    5/19/2013 5:12:56 PM
  • MANAGER REACTION As Arsene Wenger reflects on yet another season in the Champions League next season, his attention turns to this summer's transfer window, "We will be out there in a very proactive way." Big words from the Frenchman as he may look to finally implement another title challenge from North London.
    5/19/2013 5:16:53 PM
  • PLAYER REACTION Michael Dawson - after Gareth Bale's goal "I thought we were in the top four after we had seen all the celebrations around the ground." The rumour that Newcastle had equalised had flown around White Hart Lane, it was not to be though
    5/19/2013 5:20:31 PM
  • It's worth pointing out that today was referee Mark Halsey's final game in the Premier League, he announced his retirement earlier this month.
    5/19/2013 5:25:43 PM
  • So there we have it, the 2012/13 Premier League season is over. While it's been a bit of a strange one - sackings galore, biting, Robin van Persie and Gareth Bale scoring ridiculous goals - next season will be even weirder. No Fergie, Moyes at United, maybe no Rooney or Bale, the return of the Special One, Conor Sammon could make his big Premier League comeback. You just never know, here's to next year.....
