ARSENAL FINISHED THEIR Premier League campaign on a high with a 3-1 win away to Burnely, less than three weeks before their Europa League final date with London rivals Chelsea.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the visitors off the mark on 52 minutes to score his 30th goal of the season in all competitions.

The Gabonese international then doubled Arsenal’s lead just after the hour mark to score his 22nd Premier League goal of the campaign – drawing him level with Liverpool duo Mo Salah and Sadio Mané in the race for the Golden Boot.

West Ham leapfrogged Watford on the final day of the season to secure a top-half finish following their 4-1 win at Vicarage Road.

Mark Noble book-ended the scoring for the visitors, grabbing his first after a quarter of an hour and wrapping up the win on 78 minutes.

Gerard Deulofeu had pulled the Hornets back into the game after Manuel Lanzini put the Hammers 2-0 ahead.

However, Jose Holebas’ red card shattered any hopes of a West Ham comeback and Marko Arnautovic scored his side’s third before Noble rounded off the victory.

Crystal Palace emerged on the right side of an eight-goal thriller against Bournemouth at Selhurst Park, with Roy Hodgson’s side running out 5-3 winners.

The home side raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to a Michy Batshuayi brace and Jack Simpson’s own goal.

Jefferson Lerma and Jordan Ibe pulled it back to 3-2 for Eddie Howe’s side before Patrick Van Aanholt added a fourth the Eagles.

Joshua King struck to reduce the gap to one goal, before Andros Townsend settled the game on 80 minutes.

Shane Long featured for the opening 45 minutes of the game, but it was Nathan Redmond who put the home side ahead four minutes before the break.
