Comments:

Final league position 2020-21: 13th After announcing his departure two days earlier, this was the last of manager Nuno Espírito Santo's 199 games in charge of Wolverhampton Wanderers in all competitions (won 95, lost 55). Wolves had now lost on the final day of each of their last four league seasons. They had now lost three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since November 2018. Wolverhampton Wanderers named eight of a possible nine substitutes.

Comments:

Final league position 2020-21: 2nd Manchester United remained unbeaten in their away games throughout a league season for the first time in their history. They became the third team to remain unbeaten away from home in a top division season after Preston North End in 1888-89 in League Division One and Arsenal in 2001-02 and 2003-04, both Premier League. The Red Devils became the second team in Europe's top five divisions to remain unbeaten in away games in a season but not win the title after Perugia in Italy's Serie A in 1978-79. Anthony Elanga became the 19th teenager to score in the Premier League for United; the most players at a club in the competition except for Arsenal (20). Manchester United were awarded a penalty after 45 minutes following a VAR review.
