Leeds and Leicester join Southampton in the Championship
Abdoulaye Doucoure was the hero for Everton on the final day.
A win was what Everton needed on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday to avoid relegation to the Championship and that is exactly what Sean Dyche’s side got.
Toffees midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure scored a stunning second-half goal to keep his team in the top flight for another season.
Doucoure let fly from outside the box to score his first goal at Goodison Park in 20 months and his ninth ever Everton goal.
Leeds and Leicester relegated
Everton’s narrow victory over Bournemouth means that Leeds United and Leicester City have been relegated to the Championship.
Tottenham put the final nail in Leeds’ coffin with a 4-1 win at Elland Road. At the King Power Stadium, Leicester beat West Ham 2-1 but it was too little too late for Dean Smith’s side, who return to the Championship after winning the Premier League seven years ago.
