And that's me done too.

Head here for all the reaction to the final day of the Premier League season.

FULL-TIME

Arsenal 3-1 Everton

And that is it. The final full-time whistle of the Premier League season.

Arsenal miss out on the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Arsenal 3-1 Everton

Deep into stoppage time, Ross Barkley flashes an effort wide from outside the Arsenal box. Last rites time...

GOAL - Arsenal 3-1 Everton

Aaron Ramsey

What a finish, in every sense. It might not matter, it might be one of the final kicks of the season, and it might only be his first of the campaign, but this is lovely from Aaron Ramsey. Edge of the area, right-footed, curled into the top corner. Delicious.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Should be three! Alex Iwobi through on goal, somehow only putting his effort at the feet of Joel Robles. Hector Bellerin, meanwhile, continues to play like Stanley Matthews.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Arsenal threaten for the first time in a while. Alex Iwobi tries to get on the end of a cross from the right, but just isn't tall enough.

SUBSTITUTION

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Enner Valencia is booed as he is replaced by Arouna Kone. It's not his fault that Laurent Koscielny tackled like a fool.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Arsenal are pinned back, but are defending well. Arsene Wenger is on his feet, patrolling the touchline. He's got his suit jacket on now. He looks like he's off to a funeral.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

If it's now a dead rubber, no one has told Hector Bellerin. He's still up and down the right like one of those bunnies from the batteries advert. I'd forgotten that Arsenal only had 10 men.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

I'll be honest, it's not very interesting any more. Arsenal know that the jig is up. Arsene Wenger almost can't bring himself to watch. He's probably wondering how many defenders he'll have for the cup final.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

The balloon has popped at the Emirates. Granit Xhaka off, Francis Coquelin on. The challenges are still flying in, mind. Rob Holding has stuck one on Enner Valencia.

Gabriel Jesus

It doesn't matter.

Gabriel Jesus adds the fifth - and it is Sergio Aguero who provides it.

Aguero turns on the gas down the right, looking up to intelligently pull back to the young Brazilian.

He gets a touch of luck with a dodgy first touch, then brilliantly pokes in over a jumping Watford defender on the line.

GOAL - Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Romelu Lukaku

No mistake from Romelu Lukaku, who slots left-footed to the right of Petr Cech.

Game on?

It barely matters, Arsenal aren't making the last four.

PENALTY

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

It never rains, does it?

Penalty to Everton, a Nacho Monreal handball. Clear as day.

GOAL - Liverpool 3-0 Middlesbrough

Adam Lallana

Fire up the theme music, that is surely Champions League nights back at Anfield.

From a Middlesbrough corner, the Reds break at speed and in number.

After an initially disappointing cross, the ball breaks back to Adam Lallana who saunters through and slots past Brad Guzan.

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

I tell you what, Ashley Williams is a lucky boy. A trip on Danny Welbeck after already being booked. After a conflab involving pretty much every player on the field, Michael Oliver keeps his cards in his pocket.

Meanwhile...

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

Gabriel is being carried off. It was a poor challenge, in truth, Gabriel wrapping his legs around Enner Valencia, but coming off worse. Per Mertesacker is on.

GOAL - Liverpool 2-0 Middlesbrough

Philippe Coutinho

And the collective frown is finally turning around at Anfield.

Philippe Coutinho lines up his effort and sends a low skidding effort round the wall and inside Brad Guzan's far post.

The keeper was unsighted, but down slowly anyway.

The whole atmosphere has lifted.

Liverpool celebrate

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

The big defender has his head in his hands. There's worse news for the Gunners, too...

Now, what's happened here? Gabriel has gone in on Enner Valencia and stayed down, clutching his knee. There are calls for a stretcher...

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

Could have been three! Danny Welbeck denied by Joel Robles, Mesut Ozil then denied on the rebound by the Everton keeper. Alexis Sanchez was pulling the strings. The man is a puppeteer.

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Football Focus

Koscielny will regret that for the rest of his career, he will now miss the FA Cup final. Wenger's got other replacements but nobody as good as Koscielny.

It happens, you can't do anything about it now. It was stupid but he isn't that type of player.

SUBSTITUTION

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

Everton make a change. Gareth Barry on, Idrissa Gueye off. Back under way...

HALF-TIME

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

Arsenal lead, but the Emirates is deflated with news of that Liverpool goal.

At half-time, the Gunners are not making the top four.

GOAL - Liverpool 1-0 Middlesbrough

Gini Wijnaldum (45 mins)

Relief rips around Anfield.

Gini Wijnaldum bursts into the box, takes a touch to steady himself and then lets rip with an absolute blockbuster.

It flashes past Brad Guzan and inside his near post before the Boro keeper has time to flinch.

Jurgen Klopp is bent double with relief, clenching both fists and every facial muscle he has.

Remember how I said it was goalless at Anfield?

Koeman has put Barkley on and it has opened up even further and Arsenal are doing really well going forward. If they were to score though, Everton, to help their Merseyside rivals, it will get very hairy at the Emirates.

Arsenal 2-0 Everton

As half-time approaches, it's still Arsenal that look the more likely. In the Emirates sunshine, it's open, with Hector Bellerin covering miles on the Arsenal right.

It feels like most eyes are on Anfield, where it remains goalless.

GOAL - Watford 0-4 Man City

If Walter Mazzarri hadn't already been sacked then he would have been fired at half-time. This is a shambles.

But...City have been majestic. Fernandinho wriggles through some weak challenges in the home penalty area, keeping his balance - and his head - to fire in low from six yards.

City have decided to leave the final-day drama to Liverpool and Arsenal.
