Premier League relegation battle LIVE: Results and reaction as Everton survive

The Premier League is set for a blockbuster final day as Everton, Leeds United and Leicester City all fight for a place in the top-flight next season.

The Toffees are in pole position to survive the drop, sitting 17th in the table with a two-point advantage over their relegation rivals. They face Bournemouth in this afternoon’s clash and with the Cherries already safe Everton have a strong chance of claiming victory.

Elsewhere, Leicester (18th) take on West Ham knowing that only three points - and an Everton loss - will be enough to keep them in the Premier League. The good news for Dean Smith’s side is that the Hammers are focused on their upcoming Europa Conference League final so may field a weakened team.

The final contender in this relegation battle is Leeds. They have arguably the most difficult challenge as they take on Tottenham. Home advantage can play it’s part and the Elland Road faithful will bring the noise. Like the Hammers, Leeds must win and hope Everton lose, the difference is that Spurs are also chasing three points as they have a chance to earn European football next season.

Follow all the action from the Premier League final day below and see which team avoids the drop:

Allardyce speaking to BT Sport on his future at Leeds

18:57 , Ben Fleming

“I don’t know. I can only come to that decision when I know if they want me and what the outlook and the strategy of the club are going to look like and what direction they want to go in.

“Those are some pretty big things that need to be talked about and sorted out before next season. If that’s all going in the right direction for me and the board then we’ll see.”

‘It’s professional suicide’ says Allardyce after Leeds United relegation

18:53 , Ben Fleming

Speaking to BT Sport after his side’s 4-1 defeat against Tottenham, Sam Allardyce was hugely critical of his side’s performance which saw Leeds relegated from the Premier League after a three-year stay.

He said: “It’s professional suicide - you prepare for a game and give the players tactics and then make huge errors. So we messed up again. We tried to fight our way back but messed up in a big way again because we couldn’t find the back of the net.

“We had 21 shots but two on target - that tells you everything about our capabilities of attacking - yes we can create opportunities but our quality of finishing was poor and then at the other end switching off and, in the end, Tottenham had better quality than we had.

“I wanted to go out with a sense of pride today but unfortunately I didn’t see that .”


Leeds’ relegation confirmed as Harry Kane hits double in Tottenham win

18:53 , Mike Jones

Leeds’ three-season stay in the Premier League is over after a 4-1 home defeat to Tottenham confirmed their relegation.

Harry Kane and Pedro Porro scored early in either half to put Spurs 2-0 up and, although Jack Harrison reduced the deficit, Kane struck a game-clinching second in what could be his last game for the London club.

Tottenham substitute Lucas Moura rubbed salt into Leeds’ wounds by waltzing through a porous defence in stoppage time to complete their misery.

How the final day played out as Everton survive and Leicester relegated with Leeds

18:47 , Mike Jones

The final day of the Premier League was always set to be a dramatic one at the foot of the table, with the last two remaining relegation spots the only major matter left to be concluded.

With Southampton already down, Leeds United, Everton and Leicester City were fighting it out to survive - with the Toffees in the driving seat at the beginning of the afternoon and knowing that a win for themselves made everything else irrelevant.

What unfolded though saw one side quickly out of the running and one doing their job, but needing to wait to confirm their future.

Here’s how the final day played out at the bottom of the league:

‘It’s relief’ says Coady after Everton secure survival

18:39 , Mike Jones

Everton’s Conor Coady gave a post-match interview saying that keeping the club in the Premier League was a big relief but they need to be better to avoid this feeling in the futer.

“It’s relief,” he said. “We don't want to make it a thing, we need to improve. It's the hardest season of my life, it's a lot of relief.

“We had a plan, we worked so hard, it’s important. Loads of pressure, but relief, this giant of a football club going down, you don’t want to be part of that. This club has to rise and get better now.

“It's been so hard emotionally, we have to be better. It needs to be better. I’m not imagining that [relegation], we are where we are. We don’t want this to happen again, it has to improve, this club is a giant.”

Leicester relegated from Premier League seven years after winning title

18:35 , Mike Jones

Leicester have been relegated from the Premier League to the Championship after a dramatic final day of the 2022/23 season.

Abdoulaye Doucoure’s thunderous strike earned Everton victory over Bournemouth, meaning Leicester’s win over West Ham was in vain.

The results left Sean Dyche’s side two points clear of the Foxes, with Dean Smith’s team unable to close the gap facing them entering the final game of the campaign.

The 2015/16 champions, who join Leeds and Southampton in next season’s Championship, started positively and a superb Harvey Barnes goal had them moving out of the relegation zone on goal difference after 34 minutes.

18:33 , Mike Jones

It was a day full of twists and turns but Everton earn their spot in the Premier League next season! Abdoulaye Doucoure’s wonderful strike gave Sean Dyche’s men the lead and that goal is enough to keep them out of the relegation zone.

It also dooms Leicester City to the drop. They defeated West Ham 2-1 but it wasn’t enough to keep them in the league.


18:28 , Ben Fleming

The full-time whistle blows and Leeds United’s three-year spell in the top flight is over. In truth, they needed a lot to go their way today but they never looked likely to turn things around after Kane’s goal in the second minute.

Porro added another two minutes into the second half and, despite Harrison’s goal, Kane’s second sealed Leeds’ fate before Moura’s solo effort in the final minute of added time wrapped up a miserable day for the Elland Road faithful.

Full-time: Leicester 2-1 West Ham

18:28 , Mike Jones

It’s all over at the King Power Stadium and Leicester have done what they needed to. West Ham have been beaten but the Foxes need a Bournemouth goal to stay up.

GOAL! Leeds 1-4 Tottenham (Moura, 90+5)

18:26 , Ben Fleming

It’s not to be for Leeds but what a moment for Spurs and Lucas Moura. It’s his last game in a Spurs shirt and he marks his cameo appearance in style with a wonderful solo effort.

GOAL! Leeds 1-3 Tottenham (Kane, 69)

18:01 , Ben Fleming

Whatever small hope that was conjured up by Harrison’s goal has disappeared in an instant. Leeds leave themselves wide open at the back and Spurs take full advantage with Kane netting his second of the game calmly passed Robles.

Silence around Elland Road.

GOAL! Leeds 1-2 Tottenham (Harrison, 67)

17:59 , Ben Fleming

67 mins: Well, maybe they do have some ideas! Harrison finds some space on the right and flashes a low effort across goal and into the far corner. They need so much to happen in other games to stay up but it’s a start.

Moments prior Kulusevski comes off for Sarr.

Leeds 0-2 Tottenham

17:58 , Ben Fleming

66 mins: Leeds are desperate for something to happen but there’s a complete lack of ideas out there on the pitch. Harrison jinks through a crowd of players but his clipped cross is not attacked by anyone in a white shirt and it drifts out for a goal kick.

Leeds 0-2 Tottenham

17:46 , Ben Fleming

Everton 0-0 Bournemouth

17:42 , Mike Jones

51 mins: Chance! Oh my, Everton should be in front. The ball bounces up inside the Bournemouth box and Demarai Gray is wide open.

He looks timid as he goes for the header and nods it down, straight at Mark Travers who turns it wide!

GOAL! Leeds 0-2 Tottenham (Porro, 47)

17:38 , Ben Fleming

Could that be that for Leeds? They conceded in the first two minutes of the first half and they’ve done so again in the second half.

Kane creates the goal with a wonderful bit of creativity, lifting it over Cooper in the middle of the park before sliding through Porro. He smashes it across goal and into the far corner and Leeds now have a mountain to climb.

GOAL! Southampton 3-2 Liverpool (Sulemana, 48’)

17:38 , Mike Jones

Kamaldeen Sulemana has another one! It’s a wonderful run from the Ghanaian winger who receives the ball on the halfway line, drives up the pitch, skips past a defender and curls onto into the top corner!

Second half: Back underway in the Premier League

17:36 , Mike Jones

The second half begins at Goodison Park, Elland Road and the King Power stadium and others. Leicester have jumped ahead of Everton but they could yet be relegated.

The last 45 minutes of the Premier League season kicks off around the country.

Half-time around the Premier League

17:31 , Mike Jones

Things are looking bleak at Goodison Park. Are Everton heading to the Championship?


Half-time around the Premier League

17:27 , Mike Jones

Leicester City have scored to get themselves in a position to stay up. They still need help from Bournemouth but it’s so far so good for Dean Smith’s side.

Everton have created a couple of chances but continue to struggle in the final third, Bournemouth look equally threatening and you feel if they score Everton’s chances of staying up evaporate.

Leeds are losing against Tottenham and have a mountain to climb.

Half-time around the Premier League!

17:23 , Mike Jones

As it stands:

17th: Leicester, 34 (-17 GD)

18th: Everton, 34 (-24 GD)

19th: Leeds, 31 (-28 GD)

20th: Southampton, 25 (-37 GD)

Half-time: Leeds 0-1 Tottenham

17:21 , Ben Fleming

A smattering of boos from the Elland Road faithful as the players head off for the break. Their behind after Kane’s second-minute strike and have created few chances of their own.

As things stand, they are down unless they can turn this game around and results in other games start going their way.

Half-time: Everton 0-0 Bournemouth

17:20 , Jack Rathborn

45+3 mins: Save! Everton swing the ball into the penalty area but Mark Travers punches it away from Yerry Mina. The ball comes out to Alex Iwobi who rolls it into the feet of James Garner.

Leeds 0-1 Tottenham

17:18 , Ben Fleming

45+1 mins: Ayling wins the flick-on from the long throw-in and Rodrigo gets on the second ball around the penalty spot. He’s got a lot to do from there but can’t generate the power nor the accuracy and the header goes well wide.

Half-time: Leicester 1-0 West Ham

17:18 , Mike Jones

Leicester City could not have asked for a better first 45 minutes. Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Iheanacho have been brilliant and they combined to get the Foxes ahead.

As it stands they’re ahead of Everton and will remain in the Premier League. There’s a big 45 minutes to come at the King Power Stadium.

GOAL! Aston Villa 2-1 Brighton (Undav, 39’)

17:15 , Jack Rathborn

Deniz Undav is having quite the day. He’s had a goal disallowed already then finds the back of the net once again. This one is flagged against him on the pitch but VAR overturns it and Brighton have one back!

Everton 0-0 Bournemouth

17:10 , Mike Jones

38 mins: Penalty shout!

Just before Leicester scored at the King Power stadium Lloyd Kelly brought Demarai Gray down inside the Bournemouth box at Goodison Park.

Everton wanted a penalty but the referee says Gray went down too easily and waved for play to go on. As it stands Everton are in the bottom three.

Leeds 0-1 Tottenham

17:10 , Ben Fleming

37 mins: Wober wins a header at the near post from the corner but Forster is able to tip the looping effort over the bar.

17:07 , Ben Fleming

35 mins: McKennie receives the ball on the edge of the box but it’s a speculative effort from the American which drifts harmlessly wide.

GOAL! Leicester 1-0 West Ham (Barnes, 34’)

17:05 , Jack Rathborn

34 mins: Huge, huge goal from Harvey Barnes!

He brings the ball down the left wing before cutting inside and sending it to Kelechi Iheanacho. Barnes continues into the box and collects the return pass before slotting past Fabianski’s outstretched arms to put the Foxes in front!


Southampton 2-2 Liverpool (Sulemana, 28’)

17:03 , Mike Jones

What a comeback for the Saints! 2-0 down to 2-2. Kamaldeen Sulemana has his first Southampton goal to bring them level, slotting in past the Liverpool goalkeeper.

Leeds 0-1 Tottenham

17:03 , Ben Fleming

31 mins: It’s fair to say the life has been somewhat sucked out of this Leeds crowd but there has been precious little to shout about since Koch’s early chance.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-1 Newcastle (Trippier OG, 27’)

17:02 , Mike Jones

Leicester 0-0 West Ham

16:56 , Mike Jones

24 mins: Lovely hold up play from Kelechi Iheancho sees him receive the ball just inside the penalty area. His back is to goal but he manages to lay the ball off to Harvey Barnes who cuts in from the left.

Barnes shoots but drills a low effort straight at Lukasz Fabianski who clings onto it.

GOAL! Southampton 1-2 Liverpool (Ward-Prowse, 19')

16:55 , Mike Jones

James Ward-Prowse pulls one back! With Southampton already relegated the England midfielder will have quite a few suitors over the summer and he’s doing himself no harm by trying to get the Saints back into this match.

Leeds 0-1 Tottenham

16:54 , Ben Fleming

21 mins: Leeds are certainly not leaving things to chance and throwing plenty of numbers forward. Kristensen is left in a two-versus-one against Kulusevski and Son but does superbly to prevent a goal-scoring opportunity.

Up the other end, Forshaw’s long-range effort is deflected behind by Sanchez.

GOAL! Man Utd 0-1 Fulham (Tete, 19’)

16:53 , Jack Rathborn

18 mins: Still goalless at the King Power Stadium but Kelechi Iheanacho has come close for the home side. He blazes a shot from the front edge of the box past the opposite post but it’s a good sign for the Foxes.

This could turn into a big score.

Everton 0-0 Bournemouth

16:38 , Mike Jones

6 mins: These opening stages aren’t going Everton’s way as Bournemouth sweep forward again down the right wing. A cross is whipped over to Dango Ouattara who rises above James Garner and nods the ball across to Jefferson Lerma.

Lerma meets the pass and smokes it over the crossbar!

Everton 0-0 Bournemouth

16:36 , Mike Jones

3 mins: As news comes through of a goal in the match between Leeds and Tottenham, Bournemouth’s Dango Ouattara drives down the left wing before slipping the ball inside to Dominic Solanke.

He shifts to the right and looks to play in Ryan Christie but the forward loses possession on the edge of the penalty area.

GOAL! Leeds 0-1 Tottenham (Kane, 2)

16:33 , Ben Fleming

The worst possible start for Leeds who find themselves behind inside two minutes. Porro finds some space down the right flank and is found by the pass. He drifts inside and offloads it to Son.

Son drives into the box but feeds Kane who, on perhaps his last game for the club, smashes home past Robles.

Kick off! Premier League final day

16:31 , Mike Jones

The last 10 fixtures of the Premier League season get started. Leeds, Leicester and Everton are all fighting to remain in the top-flight with Aston Villa and Tottenham vying for seventh and a spot in the Europa Conference League.

There’s sure to be lots of drama to come as the Premier League heads to it’s conclusion. Who will be relegated, who will stay up?

Premier League relegation battle

16:28 , Mike Jones

A final update on the permuatations before kick off:

If Everton beat Bournemouth they survive with Leeds and Leicester relegated.

If Leicester win and Everton lose they will stay up with the Toffees and Leeds being relegated regardless of the result at Elland Road. The Foxes will also stay up if they win and Everton draw due to their better goal difference.

If Leeds win and both Everton and Leicester lose then they will stay up with the other two clubs going down. If Leeds win and Everton draw then the Whites would need to be victorious by four or more goals to stay up on goal difference (provided Leicester also fail to win).

Manchester United vs Fulham

16:26 , Mike Jones

Antony will probably be fit for the FA Cup final after his ankle problem proved less damaging that Manchester United initially thought.

The winger came off in Thursday’s 4-1 win over Chelsea with an ankle problem manager Erik ten Hag said he thought was “serious” but scans provided good news for United.

"We have all seen he came out last Thursday, so it's quite soon, but we think it's not too bad," Ten Hag said. "He probably will be available for the cup final next week.

"We've all seen how he came off and it didn't look great but the first assessment is not too bad, there is a good opportunity he is available for the cup final."

The Brazilian, an £86 million signing from Ajax last summer, has scored eight goals in 44 appearances for United.

Leicester vs West Ham

16:25 , Mike Jones

Jamie Vardy has scored seven goals in eight Premier League appearances on the final day of a season but starts on the bench this afternoon.

Declan Rice is set to play his 204th Premier League match for West Ham, moving him joint-fifth alongside Steve Potts in the club’s leading appearance makers in the competition. Will it be his final league for the Irons?


Leicester vs West Ham

16:22 , Mike Jones

Leicester boss, Dean Smith, is without a win in six Premier League meetings with David Moyes, drawing one and losing five.

However, James Maddison has been directly involved in 19 Premier League goals this term, with 10 goals and nine assists, more than any other Leicester player.

He starts for the Foxes today.

Bournemouth started a day bottom of the table as recently as 11th March but have already secured a spot in the top-flight next year.

They have conceded a club record-equalling 70 Premier League goals this season. Only four teams have conceded more often in a campaign and avoided relegation.

Everton have lost their final league match in five of the last six seasons but Sean Dyche has won six of his eight Premier League matches as a manager versus Bournemouth, losing the other two.

However, he has lost on the final weekend in each of his last five Premier League seasons, with four of those defeats coming at home.

Harry Kane has scored on the final day in each of the past five Premier League seasons.

But, Tottenham are winless in nine away games in all competitions, drawing two and losing seven.

Leeds have lost on the final day in just one of their last 15 top-flight seasons (seven wins, seven draws).

Although that 1-0 defeat to Chelsea came when they were last relegated from the Premier League in 2003/04.

If the first 11 have presented a problem, the greater warning came on page 11. Page 11, that is, of Everton’s annual financial report.

“Conditions indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt about the group’s ability to continue as a going concern,” it read. Those conditions, in the curious way Everton phrased it, were “if the assumptions in the relegation scenario were not achieved”.

Their assumptions were that a storied club, founder members of the Football League and the club who have played more top-division games than any other in England, would stay up.

With one game to go, they are one place above the relegation zone, their fate in their hands but dicing with disaster. A win against Bournemouth will keep Everton up.

Anything else would doom them if Leicester win; lose and Leeds would leapfrog Everton with a victory of their own.
