Bournemouth and Stoke both secured their Premier League status following a well-fought game at Vitality Stadium.

The draw, coupled with Hull’s 2-0 defeat at Sunderland, ensured both sides will remain in the top flight.

Stoke took the lead in the 33rd minute when Lys Mousset inadvertently headed into his own net, before Junior Stanislas equalised when he swept home.

Mame Biram Diouf poked in to make it 2-1 but Joshua King’s close-range finish earned a precious point for the hosts.
