    As the Premier League season draws to a close, so does our time together on today's live text.

    Here's a recap of some title race content to keep you busy:

  4. Spurs secure Champions League spot

    Tottenham 2-2 Everton

    Champions League finalists Tottenham sealed a fourth-place finish in the Premier League as they ended their campaign with an entertaining draw with Everton.

    Tottenham knew a point was enough to secure one of the Champions League places for a fourth successive season under manager Mauricio Pochettino, but Spurs missed the opportunity to record back-to-back third-place finishes as Chelsea were held by Leicester.

    Eric Dier capitalised on poor Everton defending to open the scoring after just three minutes as he was given ample time and space to convert Erik Lamela's corner.

    The visitors recovered well from their slow start but took until the 69th minute to level through Theo Walcott's fine finish.

    Cenk Tosun put Everton ahead three minutes later, but Christian Eriksen's sublime free-kick after 75 minutes earned Spurs the point they required.

    The result sees Everton match their eighth-place finish of the previous campaign in Marco Silva's first season in charge.

  5. Liverpool title bid was only first step - Klopp

    Liverpool "tried everything" to win the Premier League title but finishing second to Manchester City was "only the first step", says manager Jurgen Klopp.

    The Reds beat Wolves 2-0 to finish on 97 points; the highest ever points tally for any runner-up in any of Europe's top five leagues.

    "We wanted to write our own history and we did," Klopp told BBC Sport.

    "The team made so many big steps in the last year. We made a much bigger jump development wise."

  6. Man Utd bow out of lacklustre season with home defeat to Cardiff

    Nathaniel Mendez-Laing scored twice as relegated Cardiff City won on their final Premier League appearance to heap more misery on Manchester United.

    Mendez-Laing opened the scoring for Cardiff from the penalty spot after being brought down in the box by Diogo Dalot, before scoring his second after the break.

    Goalkeeper Neil Etheridge proved the visitors' hero as he foiled several United chances on a frustrating day for the hosts, who fielded six academy graduates.

    Defeat means United have won just one of their final seven games of the season as city rivals Manchester City won the Premier League title for the second season in succession.

    Cardiff travelled to Old Trafford just a week after confirmation of their relegation to the Championship and looked set to bid farewell to the top flight with a whimper as United dominated the opening exchanges.

    But it was United who finished the match with their tails between their legs, unable to defy a resolute Bluebirds defence as they rained chance after chance on Etheridge's goal.

    Cardiff's victory was their first over Manchester United since 3 April, 1954, when manager Neil Warnock was just five years old.

    Check out the match report from Old Trafford here.

  7. Stat attack

    Liverpool's tally of 97 points would have been enough to win the Premier League in all but one of the previous 26 seasons of the competition (2017-18).

  8. Stat attack

    City's haul of 98 points is the joint-second highest for any team in English top-flight history (converting to three points for a win) - only City themselves have ever earned more (100 in 2017-18).

  9. The Man United fan with Man City's Aguero on his replica shirt?

    A Manchester United fan with 'Aguero' on the back of his shirt? Really?

    Well, it's true. One man at Sunday's defeat by Cardiff wore his club's colours... but with the surname of Manchester City striker Sergio on the back.

    After spotting it and capturing the proof, journalist Si Lloyd tweeted the image with the words: "Just delete this club."

    It turns out there was a bit of a misunderstanding though…

    Head here to find out why.

    Manchester United
  10. Stat attack

    No side has ever previously lost just one game in a top-flight season and not won the title - the previous record was also held by Liverpool in the 2008-09 season (two defeats, finished second).

  11. 'City have an amazing team spirit'

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Former Manchester City defender Sylvain Distin has just been speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live:

    "They have an amazing team spirit. I think that’s really important. It’s one aspect that’s lost in football these days."

    On Vincent Kompany's goal against Leicester: "You can't reduce the title to one game. There is no goal that is more important than others. Every single goal they scored and didn't concede is as important than the others."

    On Kompany's contract situation: "He deserves to stay because of what he represents to the club. I''m sure he's a very important influence in the dressing room. It's difficult for him now to play every game."

    On Chris Hughton: "I'm disappointed personally. I think he did a really good job. The players respected him. They've done well and remaining in the Premier League was their target and they achieved that."

  12. How the final day played out...

    Title race aside, there was the small matter of 18 other teams in action yesterday.

    Here's how the final results played out.
