BBC – Premier League results: Stoke relegated, West Brom still alive, Swansea lose
Stoke were relegated on the penultimate weekend of the Premier League season, with two of West Brom, Swansea, Southampton and Huddersfield to join them.
Stoke’s demise was confirmed in the early kick-off as they surrendered the lead to lose 2-1 to Crystal Palace.
Despite that they were just seconds from being relegated as Southampton led Everton in the late game, but the Toffees struck back for a 1-1 draw.

Elsewhere, Swansea lost 1-0 to Bournemouth, Ryan Fraser scoring to secure his side’s top-flight status and leave their opponents one point above 18th-placed Southampton.
Goals from Joao Mario and Mark Noble were enough for West Ham to see off Leicester 2-0, and their safety was confirmed by Southampton’s draw with Everton.
But Huddersfield are still in the mix to finish in the bottom three – they are just two points above Swansea with their game in hand – against champions Manchester City – on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Watford confirmed their safety with a 2-1 defeat of Newcastle, their goals coming from Roberto Pereyra and Andre Gray.
