Premier League 2017-18: 10 things you didn't know about this season

A graphic of the PL2 Player of the Season nominees

He settled instantly into the squad and kept 17 clean sheets across the course of the Premier League season as his team recorded the best campaign in the league's history.

No non-Man City player made more than 10 assists, with Tottenham pair Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, along with Manchester United's Paul Pogba, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Leicester's Riyad Mahrez the only other players to make it into double figures.

Needless to say, unless something insane happened, Liverpool would remain in the top four and Swansea would relegate.

Chelsea needed to win for any hope of a top four spot and that definitely didn't happen.

That result rendered Chelsea's match at Newcastle irrelevant to the Champions League battle and Antonio Conte's side went down 3-0 at St James' Park. The 19-point margin to second place Manchester United is also a record.

So it didn't matter that Southampton conceded late to lose 1-0 to City, meaning Pep Guardiola's side became the first team to post 100 points in a Premier League season.

Arsenal, whose head coach Arsene Wenger bid farewell to fans after 22 years in charge of capital club, bested Huddersfield Town 1-0, while Bournemouth came from behind to beat seventh-placed Burnley 2-1.

Here, we look at what lies ahead for the Premier League's top six. Arsenal already knew they were finishing sixth while Huddersfield Town was already safe from relegation but it was important to send Le Prof out a victor and they did just that.

But Xherdan Shaqiri's penalty gave Stoke victory at Swansea and the Welsh side will join Stoke and West Brom in the Championship next season.

Despite winning just seven matches all season, Southampton's upturn since the arrival of Mark Hughes sees them finish narrowly above Swansea and the Saints can now look forward to top-flight football next season - though there is work to do if they are to avoid the drop next year.
