Everton managed to beat Bournemouth 1-0 at home on the final day of the season on Sunday.

Barnes fired the Foxes in front in the 34th minute and Wout Faes headed their second in the 62nd minute, but by then the crowd was aware that Everton had taken the lead and the celebrations were subdued.
Pablo Fornals pulled a goal back for West Ham in the 79th minute, but Everton’s win made the result immaterial and the final whistle was greeted with both applause and tears by the Leicester fans.
