THE FACTS

As it stands: Despite the loss against Southampton, we will finish second in the Premier League with a draw at Newcastle on the final weekend of the season. We travel to St James' Park on Sunday week (May 15, 3pm). Arsenal's draw at City means City can no longer catch us and a top three place is now guaranteed. Arsenal are now two points behind but we have a better goal difference of plus-13. Arsenal face Villa at home.

New goals record: Heung-Min Son's goal took us to 68 for the season - a new record for the club in the Premier League era.
