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."

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.

Burnley's strong season came to a poor end as they were defeat 2-1 by West Ham at Turf Moor.

The Clarets took an early lead when Sam Vokes scored his 10th league goal of season, but a strike by Sofiane Feghouli four minutes later and a late header by Andre Ayew proved too much for the home side to overcome. Burnley were unlucky to concede what ended up being the winning goal as Tom Heaton did well to stop Emilison Fernandez but the ball dropped kindly to Ayew, who headed into a wide open net from inside the six-yard box. All things considered, though the results sees them finish in 16th, it was fine season for Sean Dyche's side. The club ends the term having picked up 33 of a possible 40 points at home, while securing top-flight football in consecutive seasons for the first time in the Premier League era.

Southampton's struggles continued as they dropped a 1-0 decision to Stoke City on the season's final day.

Manager Claude Puel has come under increasing fire as his side have limped down the stretch of the 2016-17 Premier League season. The Saints were never in any danger of relegation and finished in 8th position but Sunday represented their fifth consecutive home match without a goal. Given the amount of money spent on reinforcements like Sophiane Boufal and Manolo Gabbiadini, Saints supporters would have expected more and there have been increasingly loud cries for the French manager to be relieved of his duties. It will be an interesting summer at St. Mary's.

Leicester City came from behind to draw 1-1 with Bournemouth at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester needed to give a performance after their embarrassing defeat to Spurs on Thursday, but instead they started poorly, going behind in the first minute. With Josh King absent, it was Junior Stanislas who stepped up. He finished from close range after Schmeichel saved Mousset's original attempt. Leicester played their way into the game as the first half progressed, but they only got back on level terms after the interval. It was Jamie Vardy who grabbed the equaliser after a knock-down by Slimani. Vardy thought he had his side's second but it was disallowed as he was offside. The Foxes had a few good chances to grab all three points, but failed to convert. Instead, both sides earned a point. Leicester's title defence ended in a 12th position finish, while the Cherries have had their highest PL finish in 10th.

John Terry lifted his fifth Premier League trophy on his final day in Chelsea blue following a 5-1 win against Sunderland.

It was a precarious start for the newly-crowned champions after conceding a goal in the third minute to temporarily put a damper on the title celebrations. But Willian got Chelsea on the board in the eighth minute and it was off the the races from there with four goals after the 60th minute. Eden Hazard scored his 16th in the 61st, Pedro stole a goal in the 77th, and Michy Batshuayi scored two as a second-half substitute in stoppage time to conclude the scoring. But it was Terry's day as the long-time captain was taken off in the 26th minute to a roaring ovation and a farewell that ended in more Premier League silverware.

Romelu Lukaku scored from the penalty spot in the 58th minute as Everton lost 3-1 to Arsenal at the Emirates to wrap up the 2016-17 season.

The Belgian forward is widely rumored to be ready to move on to a club in the Champions League with former club Chelsea and former boss Jose Mourinho among those reportedly interested. Lukaku missed out on the Golden Boot after Harry Kane scored six goals over the final two matches but his age and regular contention for that honor means that Everton should recoup a massive fee if Lukaku is sold.

Like much of its season, Sunderland's final match of the season ended in disaster with a 5-1 loss to Chelsea.

Sunderland had a golden opportunity to play party-poopers at Stamford Bridge on a day that ended with champagne being splashed across the pitch by the title-winners. Javier Manquillo scored his first goal of the season in just the third minute to temporarily silence the home faithful who just wanted to see off John Terry and celebrate a fifth league title. But the lead lasted all of five minutes and the Black Cats, who were missing 11 first-team players to injury, later conceded four goals from the 60th minute on to finish bottom of the table.

Hull City's fate was already sealed but it was still a bitter pill to swallow in their final top flight match, getting manhandled 1-7 by Tottenham.

If one was at the KCOM Stadium today, you wouldn't have guessed the crowd were watching a relegated side getting beat by a lopsided score, but to the credit of Hull City supporters, the atmosphere was generally positive. Marco Silva nearly pulled off the impossible, and deserves much of the credit. Remember, this is a side that could barely piece together an 18-man squad on Matchday One. Sam Clucas scored a consolation goal in this one, his third of the season. The fact that left him just one goal short of sharing the team lead in that department (Robert Snodgrass having departed) tells you the story.
