Hull City have been relegated from the Premier League following the final round of matches.

In order to survive, The Tigers needed to beat Manchester United and hope that West Ham could do them a favour and win at Newcastle.

In the end, neither scenario transpired as Hull were held to a 0-0 draw by United - who had Marouane Fellaini sent off for a horror tackle on Paul McShane - and Newcastle ensured their survival with a 2-0 victory.

Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Gutierrez were on target for the Magpies after a goalless first half.

Steven Gerrard's last game for Liverpool turned into a nightmare as his side were hammered 6-1 by Stoke.

Incredibly, five of Stoke's goals came in the first half to give Reds boss Brendan Rodgers plenty to contemplate over the summer.

Gerrard scored a consolation for Liverpool in the second half but the goal was not enough to save his team's blushes.

Arsenal put their recent barren run in front of goal behind them with a comfortable victory over West Brom.

The Gunners led 4-0 at half time thanks to Theo Walcott's hat-trick and a goal from Jack Wilshere.

Gareth McAuley pulled one back for the Baggies after the break.

Didier Drogba played his last game for Chelsea as the league champions came from behind to beat Sunderland 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Steven Fletcher put Dick Advocaat's men in front before a Diego Costa penalty and two goals from Loic Remy sent the home fans home happy.

Frank Lampard put Manchester City in front against Southampton in his last game in the Premier League. Top scorer Sergio Aguero wrapped up a 2-0 victory for City two minutes before full time.

Leicester's fine recent form continued as they hammered already-relegated QPR 5-1.

Harry Kane found the net again for Tottenham as they secured Europa League football next season win a 1-0 win at Everton.

Danny Ings got the only goal of the game as Burnley gave their fans a rare Premier League victory to cheer with a win at Aston Villa.

In the day's final game, Marouane Chamakh got the only goal as Crystal Palace beat Swansea to secure a top-half finish.
