Hello and welcome to the last day of the Premier League season. Thanks for joining me Jamie Redknapp
and my colleague Faustino Asprilla for live coverage of Hull City Vs Newcastle. We will now get underway.
: Faustino, you played for Newcastle, how do you think Shearer's done in his first proper year as manager?
FA: I think he's done a good job in getting them where they are in the league now. They've also had a nice cup run and made some good signings.
: Who do you think has been their best signing?
FA: I think Gabby Agbonlahor or Nicolás Gaitán because they've both had an effect on the pitch and with the fans. Gaitán has been great with his set pieces while Agbonlahor has been their 'super-sub'. It's tough but I think Gaitán because of his phenomenal work from set pieces.
: OK, we've just received the team lineups and will give you our analysis of the starting XI's.
: Faustino, let's start with Hull. They look very defensive with five at the back. Are they trying to prevent Newcastle from qualifying or are they just going how they normally do?
FA:Well Jamie, in most matches I've seen, Hull have used this formation. Newcastle will have to look out for Proschwitz and Vossen up front as they could score a couple if Newcastle don't defend well.
:Thanks for that Faustino, now let's look at Newcastle's lineup.
FA: They look like they're going back to as close to the team they were at the start of the season with Astori and Coloccini playing as center backs. The fullbacks are changed however with Santon and Debuchy out with injuries. Yanga Mbiwa and Rúben come in to replace them. A solid back four but Mbiwa is a little inexperienced this season and might be a bit shaky. They keep the same formation in midfield with Vurnon Anita keeping his role as a defensive midfielder, Hatem Ben Arfa and Moussa Sissoko in the center and Gaitán playing as an attacking midfielder.
: A very stong midfield there and they could cause a few problems for the Hull defense. Moving on to the strikers and we go back to the original partnership of Yoan Gouffran and Alessandro Matri with Gabby Agbonlahor on the bench. I'm told that we are about to kick off. We'll keep you updated throughout the match, as well as hearing the scores from Spurs and Arsenal. Without further ado, let's begin.
0': Hull City kick off the game.
20': Gaitán's free kick bounces off the bar and out for a goal kick.
24': Tim Krul makes a fantastic save as he tips Nick Proschwitz shot wide.
32': Yoan Gouffran flicks a ball on to Ben Arfa who shoots straight at Mcgregor.
45': Arsenal take the lead at Stoke through Olivier Giroud.
: The first half comes to an end with Newcastle having had the most chances. Anyone impressed you so far Faustino?
FA: I was impressed by Tim Krul, he made a great save and he has been the puppet master of his defense. Good display and I think Newcastle should have taken their chances.
: Thanks Faustino, let's go back to the game for the second half.
45': Newcastle kick off the second half.
49' Emanuel Adebayor gives Tottenham the lead.
: Yanga Mbiwa picks up a nasty injury and is replaced by Massimo Haidara.
80' Alessandro Matri misses a great chance as he puts the ball past the post. The score remains 0-0.
85': Olivier Giroud doubles Arsenal's lead over Stoke.
88': Emanuel Adebayer doubles Spurs's lead.
89': Jack Wilshere triples Arsenal's lead.
The match finishes 0-0.
: Newcastle have failed to win but Tottenham have only won 2-0 which means that Newcastle have qualified through goal difference! Faustin?
FA: I'm absolutely delighted for the lads, they'll be relieved to have qualified after looking shaky towards the end of the season. Great achievement in Shearer's first season.
: Here's a look at the final league table with Newcastle winning the race for 7th. From me, Jamie Redknapp and my colleague and former Newcastle player Faustino Asprilla, it's goodbye for now.
