Premier League wrapup
Manchester City won its second league title in three seasons with a 2-0 win over West Ham on Sunday. Liverpool had its best season since 2008-09 when it finished second to the other club from Manchester, Manchester United.
Here's a look at five things you need to know about how the Premier League ended its season.
• After Manchester City lost to Liverpool on April 13, City was seven points adrift with two matches in hand. The club made the most of the last month of the season, going 5-0-1 in its last six matches and outscoring its opponents 16-6, trailing for a grand total of five minutes over that span. Liverpool, meanwhile, dropped points to Chelsea and Crystal Palace, clearing the way for City to claim the title.
• Manchester City came one goal short of setting the Premier League record for goals scored with 102. Chelsea still holds the all-time Premier League record with 103, set in 2009-10 when it last won the league. Liverpool also broke the 100 goal barrier, getting 101 on the season. It's the first time in Premier League history that two teams scored 100+ goals in the same season and the first time it's happened in England's top division since 1960-61 when three teams did so (Tottenham - 115, Wolverhampton - 103, Burnley - 102).
• Despite not winning the title, it was a great season for Liverpool. 84 points is its second best single-season point total in the Premier League behind its 86 points in 2008-09. Liverpool scored 101 goals, second-most in a single season in club history behind the 106 it scored in England's second division in 1895-96. The club also improved by 23 points from last season, the second-best single-season turnaround in Premier League history behind its 24 point improvement from 2004-05 to 2005-06.
• Manchester United's season to forget ended with several club-worsts in the Premier League era - points (64), finishing position (7th), goal difference (+21), wins (19) and losses (12). The Red Devils also will not participate in any European competition next season for the first time since 1989-90.
• Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff City were all relegated from the Premier League. That ends a 13-year run in the Premier League for Fulham, one of only eight teams to have participated in the Premier League every year since 2001-02. Norwich City returns to the Championship after scoring only 28 goals this season, tied for fourth-fewest in a Premier League season. Cardiff leaves the Premier League as one of only four teams to spend just one year in the Premier League along with Barnsley, Blackpool and Swindon Town. That list shrunk by one this season as Burnley will return to the Premier League next year for a second go-around after four seasons in the Championship.
