The Reds recovered from conceding within the first 30 seconds at St James’ Park to produce a comfortable 3-1 win over Newcastle to finish on a club-record 99 points.
It was, for a long time, a foregone conclusion that Liverpool would end the season as champions, having clinched the title with seven games to play.
But there were many other stories to tell on the final day, as sides battled for European qualification and against relegation.
Final Premier League Table
Who was relegated?
Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth
Norwich were already confirmed to be playing Championship football next season, and fell to a 5-0 defeat to Man City to further highlight the gulf in quality for the Canaries.
Elsewhere, Aston Villa were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham, but Jack Grealish’s goal was enough to keep the Villans up.
It was too little, too late for the Cherries having lost their mojo this season, and they return to the second tier for 2020/21.
Who is being promoted?
Leeds, West Brom and TBD
Swansea, Brentford, Cardiff and Fulham will contest those, with Rhian Brewster hoping to fire the Swans back to the top flight.
Who qualified for the Champions League?
Liverpool, Man City, Man United and Chelsea
United qualify and so do Chelsea, who beat Wolves by the same scoreline to book their place in Europe’s top-tier tournament.
Who qualified for the Europa League?
Leicester and Tottenham
When will next season start?
The new Premier League season has been confirmed to begin on the weekend of September 12/13, with the final round of games to be played on the weekend of May 22/23.
Liverpool now have a seven-week break before returning to action, with the transfer window to open on July 27.
