Heading in to the final matchday for the 2019–20 season. Watford, Bournemouth and Aston Villa were fighting against relegation for the last remaining spot in the 2020–21 Premier League season. Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester United were all in the hunt for the final two Champions League spots. Wolves and Tottenham were in a battle to fill the 6th spot, and for a spot in the Europa League.

Overview

Managerless Watford were relegated from the Premier League on the final day of the season as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang inspired Arsenal to victory.

Brighton recorded their highest Premier League points total as they completed their campaign with an impressive win at Burnley.

Chelsea sealed fourth place in the Premier League to wrap up qualification for next season's Champions League with a comfortable victory over Wolves.

Tottenham secured their place in next season's Europa League with a hard-fought draw at Crystal Palace. The result sees Jose Mourinho's side leapfrog into sixth place above Wolves.

Bournemouth's five-year stay in the Premier League came to an end despite beating Everton at Goodison Park as Aston Villa's draw at West Ham meant they were relegated to the Championship.

Manchester United secured a place in the Champions League at the expense of Leicester City with victory at King Power Stadium.

Manchester City legend David Silva made his final Premier League appearance but Kevin de Bruyne stole the show as his side brushed aside already-relegated Norwich.

Champions Liverpool finished on their highest Premier League points total as they came from behind to beat Newcastle on the final day of the season.

Southampton overturned a half-time deficit for only the second time this season to end their Premier League campaign with victory over Sheffield United.

Aston Villa will play Premier League football next season after a draw at West Ham was enough to ensure they escaped relegation on the final day of the campaign.

Reliant on the result of the FA cup final, Arsenal could still qualify to the Europa League if they win. If Chelsea win then Wolves would qualify for the playoff stage and Tottenham would be given a automatic group stage spot.

Wolves could still qualify for the 2020–21 Champions League if they win the Europa League.

a. Manchester City were initially banned from all UEFA club competitions for the 2020–21 and 2021–22 seasons by the UEFA Club Financial Control Body on 14 February 2020 due to alleged breaches of the UEFA Financial Fair Play Regulations. The decision was appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 26 February 2020. That appeal was heard on 8 June 2020. The appeal was upheld on 13 July 2020, and the ban was overturned.
b. Since the winners of the 2019–20 EFL Cup, Manchester City, have qualified for the Champions League group stage by league position, the spot given to the EFL Cup winners (Europa League second qualifying round) is passed down to the sixth-placed team.
