Ferguson will be succeeded at Old Trafford by Everton manager David Moyes, who saw his team beaten 2-1 at third-placed Chelsea in his farewell after an 11-year reign.

The win for Arsenal sealed the final qualifying spot for the Champions League. That left London rivals Tottenham, who beat Sunderland 1-0, in fifth place and forced to settle for a Europa League place.
