EPL Final Day: Relegated Cardiff shocks Man United as Leicester holds Chelsea

Manchester United lethargic form continued as they fell 2-0 to relegated Cardiff at Old Trafford in their final game of the season.

Cardiff whose participation in the Championship had been confirmed last week was to take the lead in the 23rd minute through Nathaniel Mendez-Laing penalty before doubling their lead nine minutes after resumption via Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.

The result meant that United finished 32 points above eventual winners Manchester City and will miss the prestigious UEFA Champions League after finishing sixth on the log.

In other games of the day, Chelsea was held to a goalless draw by Leicester at the King Power Stadium to finish third as Spurs 2-2 draw against Everton ensured they cemented their top four spot.

Spurs held by Everton

Spurs took a third-minute lead through Eric Dier but goals from Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun had threatened to accord them another loss before Christian Eriksen came up with a goal fifteen minutes from time to ensure a share of spoils.

There was another thriller at Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace emerged winners in their eight-goal thriller against AFC Bournemouth.

Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi grabbed a brace as goals from Patrick Van Aanholt and Andros Townsend coupled by an own from Jack Simpson gave the home side the needed win this despite the visitors bagging their goals through Jefferson Lerma, Jordon Ibe, and Joshua King.
