Premier League Final Day: The final day of the Premier League 2022–23 season concluded with the announcement of the final two results in the relegation fight and the chase for a spot in Europe. Abdoulaye Doucoure’s goal in the second half gave Everton the victory they required to stay in the league, although things were not always easy.

Prior to their 1-0 loss at Brentford, Manchester City had already won the Premier League title, with second-place Arsenal thrashing Wolves in north London. While Manchester United and Newcastle retained the third and fourth slots and qualified for the Champions League.
Everton supporters were briefly considering the possibility that they would lose after Leicester grabbed the lead in their game before Doucoure turned Goodison Park into a frenzy. A crucial stoppage-time Jordan Pickford save stopped a late Bournemouth goal that would have eliminated Everton.
Leeds United and former Premier League champions Leicester City will be down to the Championship along with Southampton. Leeds lost 3-1 against Spurs on the last day due to a porous defence, which was a microcosm of their season. And Leicester’s supporters were perplexed by the club’s quick slide as they fell agonisingly short of safety.
Spurs eventually failed to advance to the European stage because Aston Villa defeated Brighton to take seventh place. The last European spot was won by Aston Villa thanks to their victory over Brighton at home. That ensured a team that was previously in the relegation zone seventh place and a spot in the Conference League in 2023–24. Spurs and Brentford, who both failed to qualify for Europe, ended below Villa.
The finest game on the last day was at Southampton, when the lowest team clawed back from being down 2-0 to lead Liverpool 4-2 before the Reds salvaged a 4-4 draw and the fifth-place finish in the Premier League standings.
