Results elsewhere combined with a West Ham United victory on Saturday to secure the Irons’ status as a top-flight side, ending the prospect of relegation.
David Moyes’ side picked up a comfortable victory away to Leicester City, winning 2-0 away from home.
With Swansea also losing to Bournemouth and Southampton drawing at Everton, it means that West Ham have finally beaten the drop to the English Championship with two games remaining.
Fans were obviously delighted with the result and performance away to the Foxes, with Marko Arnautovic drawing particular praise.
The forward has been instrumental in the club’s bid to avoid relegation and over the last six games alone has scored three goals and provided two assists.
That’s part of a 15 direct goal contribution for the season, consisting of 10 goals and five assists.
Supporters believe he has been the difference between going down and staying up and took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his West Ham impact this season…
Marko Arnautovic has well and truly kept us in the premier league this season ⚒⚒⚒

Mental to think that without the form of Arnautovic alone we’d have been down by now.
What a day for him, helps keep the team up, a former team down, the catalyst in all we’ve done leading up to now.
24m, a steal.

West Ham survived this relegation battle because of the fans.
The players have also stepped up!
We must keep Arnautovic! What a player! I've also been impressed with Mario of late! He is growing into the club…. ⚒️
