Wins over Bournemouth and fellow strugglers Swansea City put survival within touching distance and Southampton's top-flight status was confirmed on Sunday despite a last-gasp 1-0 defeat against champions Manchester City.

City finished 19 points clear of second placed Manchester United - the biggest title-winning margin in the Premier League era - to emphasis the gap between the runaway champions and the chasing pack.

Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal has denied claims that Sunday's 2-1 loss to Stoke City will be his final game in charge of the club.
