Everton failed to pick up points at home to Sunderland as they were unable to find the net after going down to 10 men due to a red card issued to Tim Howard in a 0-1 final.

In a stretch of favorable fixtures, investment in the Toffees backfired today as all the major players disappointed in one way or another. Lukaku failed to find the net, Barkley didn't get the start, Mirallas was subbed off at halftime for an unknown illness, Baines didn't start as some anticipated, and of course, the Howard sending off. Look for a bounce back performance this weekend when they face off against Southampton this weekend at Goodison Park.

Manchester United have been handed an injury boost ahead of their Europa League final with Ajax.

United duo Marouane Fellaini and Chris Smalling, who were absent for the final game of the Premier League season with Crystal Palace, trained on Tuesday morning with the squad at Carrington before the team flew out to Stockholm. Victory in the final will see United qualify for the Champions League next season, and thus define José Mourinho's first year in charge at Old Trafford.

Bournemouth starlet Lewis Cook has received praise from his manager Eddie Howe after some good performances in the final weeks of the season.

Cook appeared five times for the Cherries towards the end of the season before missing the final day clash with Leicester as he is representing the England U-20s at the World Cup in South Korea. Cook arrived to the south coast club ahead of the 2016/17 season in a £7 million deal with Leeds United, and started the first PL game of the campaign before enduring a frustrating season on the periphery. However, Cook's displays since returning to the field off the bench in the GW33 defeat to Spurs have been promising. The highlight was the 20 year old supplying an assist for Junior Stanislas against Burnley. His manager favourably compared the Yorkshire man to Jack Wilshere, citing his comparable creativity, control and pace aided by an aggression similar to that of Harry Arter. Howe added: "Lewis is a very special talent... In a short time in the team, he really has been very productive." It sounds like Cook may be more central to Howe's plans next term.

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has said that his future will be decided in the next fortnight, one way or another.

His manager at Atleti, Diego Simeone, had previously admitted a move away from the club was possible but this is the strongest statement yet from the player himself. When asked to rate his chances of moving to United out of ten, Griezmann said "Six". He went on to rate his chances of staying put and signing a new contract at "Seven". He completely ruled out a cross-city move to Real Madrid. Sky's Spanish Football expert Guillem Balague has claimed that Griezmann is holding out to discover if United will play in the Champions League next season before coming to a decision. Balague expects United to trigger the Frenchman's buyout clause of €100 million to make the deal go through.

Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe is on the verge of joining Premier League side Bournemouth.

Defoe, 34, is believed to have opened talks with Eddie Howe's side immediately after Sunderland's final game of the season at Stamford Bridge in order to secure a move. The England international has a clause in his Sunderland contract which allows him leave on a free transfer if the club were relegated from the top flight. After scoring 15 PL goals this campaign, Defoe is said to be aiming to match or better his current wage, with The Guardian's David Hytner reporting that the veteran forward has been offered £20 million including a signing on fee for a three year contract.

Jack van Gelder, the host of Dutch sports television channel Ziggo Sport, claims Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been carrying a secret injury for almost two months.

Following the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, Van Gelder told Ziggo that Pogba’s return "went well" before going on to suggest the 24-year-old had been receiving treatment from Dutch physiotherapist – Leo Echteld – for the past eight weeks to help cure a troublesome hamstring injury. Pogba played a little under 45 minutes on Sunday having missed the two previous matches following the death of his father, as Jose Mourinho carefully manages his £89m star ahead of Wednesday night’s Europa League final against Ajax. United made seven changes for the visit of Sam Allardyce’s men on the final day and it was one of those newcomers, Josh Harrop, on his senior debut, who set the home side on their way to victory with a stunning opening goal.

Arsène Wenger has been left sweating on the fitness of Shkodran Mustafi with Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista likely to miss next weekends’ FA Cup final.

The German international was a notable absentee from the Arsenal line-up against Everton and it wasn’t until after the game that the reasons behind his omission was known. Mustafi is being treated for concussion after the centre-back complained of a headache and dizziness following the 2-0 win over Sunderland. But while it was initially thought that he would be okay to face Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday, the problem could be a little more serious, and his availability cannot be guaranteed at this stage. With Koscielny suspended and Gabriel [knee] ruled out after he was stretchered off yesterday, Wenger could be forced into playing Monreal alongside Rob Holding and Per Mertesacker with Kieran Gibbs returning to the side having recovered from a thigh injury.

Mousa Dembele will miss Tottenham’s end of season trip to Hong Kong as he is scheduled to undergo foot surgery this week.

The 29-year-old has struggled during the latter part of the season due to a persistent foot problem and the club have taken the decision for the midfielder to go under the knife in an attempt to cure the long-standing injury. It’s hoped that Dembele will be ready to return for the start of pre-season at the beginning of July. Kyle Walker will be included in the squad, even though he is being heavily linked with a summer move away, and in spite of missing the 7-1 win at Hull because of an ankle issue. However, Danny Rose [knee] and Erik Lamela [hip] will not be a part of the travelling group after the pair had more surgery earlier this month. In addition, Harry Winks [ankle] remains on the sidelines.

The David Moyes era at Sunderland has come to an abrupt end after the manager handed in his resignation on Monday.

The Black Cats were the first team relegated from the Premier League this season and finished last on just 24 points from six wins, six draws and 26 losses. After just one year, Moyes couldn't reverse the one-and-done trend after stints at Manchester United and Real Sociedad. Said chairman Ellis Short in a statement: "Having worked tirelessly throughout the campaign to avoid relegation from the Premier League, David has chosen to leave the club without compensation, which is testament to his character. In the days ahead we will take some time for reflection, and then focus on recruitment and pre-season as we prepare for our Championship campaign. We wish David well in the future."

Manchester City defender Gael Clichy confirmed that he will not return to the club next season.

In an interview with "Sky Sports" at a fan Q&A event, Clichy said that he has played his last game at City when asked whether he would play alongside Joe Hart next year: "It's hard. I'm not sure whether or not Joe will be here next season, and I won't be here next season." Clichy's contract is up this summer and looks to be the second City defender to confirm his exit with Pablo Zabaleta receiving a sendoff last week at the Etihad. The Frenchman joined from Arsenal in 2011 and won two Premier League titles with the side.

Leicester City has announced the departure of defender Marcin Wasilewski after four years at the club.

The 36-year-old was a key part of the club's title-winning team last season as the first defender off the bench, which lead to a contract extension, but the defender made only one appearance in the Premier League this season. He will now leave the club on a free transfer, four seasons since his move from Anderlecht. Said manager Craig Shakespeare: "Marcin’s been an absolute pleasure to work with over the last four years. The influence he has had and the contribution he has made goes beyond what people see on the pitch. He’s one of the best professionals I’ve ever worked with."

Tottenham finished the season on a very positive note as Harry Kane scored a hat trick for the second time in three days and Spurs got goal-happy, ripping apart Hull City 1-7.

Kane scored seven goals in less than 72 hours. Incredible. He finishes the season with 29 goals in league play alone and grabs his second straight Golden Boot. It looks pretty safe to say, this is no one-season wonder, as the away supporters chanted during the dazzling display. Too many goals to provide detail, but Dele Alli, Victor Wanyama, Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld also got on the score sheet. Christian Eriksen provided a pair of assists as well as Kieran Trippier, who looks poised to try and claim the right back role next season with Kyle Walker heavily linked to an exit from the club in the summer. According to Opta, Spurs +60 goal difference is the highest in league history for a non title-winning side. The future certainly looks bright enough though.
