United qualify for Europa League despite Zaha’s winner, Arsenal miss out on top four despite Everton win.

Arsenal recorded a comfortable 5-1 win against Everton, but had to settle for fifth on the final day.

Gabriel Martinelli’s penalty broke the deadlock on 27 minutes after a handball by Alex Iwobi.

Martinelli turned provider four minutes later, as he flicked on a corner for Eddie Nketiah to bundle in.

Donny van de Beek pulled one back for Everton in first-half stoppage time, tapping in a Dominic Calvert-Lewin cross. 

Two goals in quick succession from Cedric Soares and Gabriel put Arsenal firmly in control after the break, before Martin Odegaard added a late fifth.

Arsenal finish a place below Tottenham Hotspur on 69 points, two fewer than their north London rivals.

Everton, who guaranteed their Premier League safety in midweek, finish 16th with 39 points.

Wilfried Zaha’s first-half strike helped Crystal Palace beat Manchester United 1-0 but West Ham United’s 3-1 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion means United finish sixth and qualify for the UEFA Europa League.

Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp were denied by David De Gea before Zaha opened the scoring on 37 minutes.

The winger drove into the penalty area before shooting into the bottom-left corner.

Scott McTominay could only head straight at Vicente Guaita with 16 minutes remaining as United were unable to find an equaliser.

They end the season in sixth on 58 points, two clear of West Ham.

Palace finish 12th with 48 points in Patrick Vieira’s first season in charge at Selhurst Park.
