Fulham and Cardiff City bade farewell to the Barclays Premier League with a whimper as both suffered crushing defeats at Stoke City and Newcastle United.

Goals from Peter Odemwingie, Marko Arnautovic, Oussama Assaidi and Jonathan Walters sealed Fulham's fate in a 4-1 win at the Britannia Stadium. Kieran Richardson's late goal was rendered irrelevant as the Whites' 13-year stint in the top flight ended.

Loïc Rémy scored his 14th goal of the season to help end Newcastle's six-game losing streak and send catastrophic Cardiff down with a 3-0 victory.

Late strikes from Rémy and substitute Steven Taylor, coupled with Sunderland's shock win at Manchester United - their first since 1968 - ensured Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men will be playing in the Football League once again next season.
