The 2020-21 Premier League season is over, and it ended just like last season for Leicester City. On the final day of the campaign, Leicester City failed to deliver and will miss out on the UEFA Champions League again after finishing fifth. Liverpool ended up finishing in third thanks to their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, while Chelsea dodged a bullet, losing to Aston Villa but still managing to finish in fourth.

Here are the results and a look at those who qualified for Europe for the upcoming season starting in August.

Scores

Liverpool 2, Crystal Palace 0
Aston Villa 2, Chelsea 1
Tottenham 4, Leicester City 2
Manchester United 2, Wolves 1
Manchester City 5, Everton 0
West Ham 3, Southampton 0
Arsenal 2, Brighton 0
Newcastle 2, Fulham 0
Leeds 3, West Brom 1
Sheffield United 1, Burnley 0

Champions League

The four best teams in the Premier League make the Champions League, and the top four features no real surprises. City and United had already qualified entering the day, while Liverpool and Chelsea each controlled their own destiny. The Reds took care of business with the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace thanks to a Sadio Mane double, while Chelsea failed to win but still got in as Leicester could not beat Tottenham.

  • Manchester City (first place)
  • Manchester United (second place)
  • Liverpool (third place)
  • Chelsea (fourth place)

Europa League

Leicester still qualified for Europe despite missing out on the UCL, while West Ham are back in Europe for the first time since the 2016-17 season. That was a campaign that did not go well under Slaven Bilic as the Hammers crashed out in the qualifying stages to Romanian side Astra Giurgui. It was West Ham's first top-six finish since they finished fifth in 1999.

  • Leicester City (fifth place)
  • West Ham (sixth place)

Conference League

Tottenham will become the first English team to play in the newly formed Conference League after beating out their rival Arsenal for seventh place. It's far from where Spurs want to be, but after an up and down season, firing manager Jose Mourinho and losing the EFL Cup final, it could have been even worse. 

  • Tottenham (seventh)
