Comments:

Final league position 2015-16: 18th Although they were relegated, Newcastle United - under manager Rafa Benitez - had now lost only one of their last nine home Premier League games (won five). The Magpies last scored five goals in a Premier League game in their 6-2 win against Norwich City at St James' Park on 18 October 2015. Aleksandar Mitrovic's goal was the 1,000th scored in the Premier League in 2015-16. Newcastle United also scored the 1,000th Premier League goal in 2013-14.

Comments:

Final league position 2015-16: 3rd Tottenham Hotspur finished in their highest final league position since 1989-90 when they also finished third in League Division One. Had Spurs avoided defeat on this final day of the season, they would have finished above Arsenal for the first time since 1994-95. They conceded five goals in a Premier League game for the first time since Manchester City's 5-1 at White Hart Lane on 29 January 2014. With 25 goals, Harry Kane became the first English-born player to finish as the Premier League's leading scorer since Kevin Phillips in 1999-2000. Ryan Mason was booked in the first minute of added time in the first half.
