TWITTER REACTS: The final day of the Premier League

Another Premier League season has been and gone, and what a ten months it has been.

Manchester City and Liverpool fought valiantly to bring us the most competitive title race we’ve ever had. Pep Guardiola’s side had to beat Brighton on the south coast to clinch the title by just a single point, making it two on the bounce.

Jürgen Klopp narrowly missed out on his first trophy in English football; his side’s 97 points is the highest tally of any team to finish second in the English top flight. Their 97 beat the previous record of Leeds United in 1970-71 (91).

It just wasn’t meant to be for Liverpool this year, but that did not dampen the spirits of their fans before or after the game.

Elsewhere in the top four there was no more movement; 3rd-place Chelsea dropped points with a draw away at Leicester, but this had no impact on the table as Everton held Spurs to a 2-2 draw at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Arsenal won away at Burnley, and the two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang caused a three-way tie for the Premier League Golden Boot. It is the lowest winning total (22) since Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov shared the prize with 20 goals each in 2011.

But arguably the biggest shock of the day was Manchester United’s bizarre 2-0 defeat to Cardiff City. The Bluebirds were already relegated, but they have gone down in style. Icelandic midfielder Aron Gunnarsson played his final game for the club, and his ‘Viking Clap’ send-off was spine-chilling.

The Premier League and the title races it creates seem to get better every year. This year’s will go down as one of the closest and hardest fought, and people took to Twitter to share their appreciation.
