Friday 7 May

Leicester 2-4 Newcastle

Newcastle stunned Leicester to inch closer to survival and deal a potentially damaging blow to the Foxes’ Champions League hopes.

Callum Wilson struck twice in a shock 4-2 win at the ragged hosts to all but secure the Magpies’ Premier League status.

Caglar Soyuncu’s error gifted Joe Willock an opener before Paul Dummett’s first goal in over five years doubled the visitors’ lead.

Wilson’s second-half brace lifted the Magpies to 13th, despite Marc Albrighton and Kelechi Iheanacho scoring late on for Leicester.

They will be safe if Fulham fail to beat Burnley on Monday but can now only go down on goal difference as they face the Cottagers on the final day of the season.

Leeds 3-1 Tottenham

Leeds dealt Tottenham’s Champions League hopes a major blow with an impressive 3-1 win at Elland Road.

Son Heung-min cancelled out Stuart Dallas’ early opener, but Patrick Bamford fired Leeds back in front before half-time and substitute Rodrigo’s emphatic finish sealed a deserved victory.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side were off colour in last week’s defeat at Brighton, but bounced back to turn in another scintillating display against one of the Premier League’s ‘big six’.

They climbed back into the top half of the table, while Tottenham now face a fight to qualify for even a Europa League place after their first league defeat under interim boss Ryan Mason.

Sheffield Utd 0-2 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace earned the win that mathematically secured their Premier League survival as they overcame already-relegated Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Christian Benteke’s early goal and Eberechi Eze’s late clincher ensured Roy Hodgson’s side won 2-0 in the rain on Saturday to end a three-match losing run.

The Eagles were all but safe before arriving in Sheffield but this victory made absolutely sure.

Man City 1-2 Chelsea

Sergio Aguero missed a penalty as Chelsea came from behind to snatch a 2-1 Premier League win at the Etihad Stadium and delay Manchester City’s title-winning party.

Victory over the side they will face in the Champions League final in three weeks’ time would have seen City confirmed as Premier League champions for the third time in four years on Saturday.

But despite taking a first-half lead through Raheem Sterling, record goalscorer Aguero then embarrassingly fluffed his lines from the spot and Hakim Ziyech levelled for the Londoners after the break.

Marcos Alonso then grabbed the winner deep into injury time from a Timo Werner cross.

Liverpool 2-0 Southampton

Liverpool kept their faint top-four hopes alive but the unconvincing manner of the 2-0 victory at home to Southampton does not bode well for their Champions League aspirations.

Jurgen Klopp’s side stumbled over the line for only a second league win at Anfield in 2021 thanks to Sadio Mane’s first-half header and Thiago Alcantara’s first goal for the club in the 90th minute.

At this stage of the campaign results rather than performances are the preference and considering Liverpool’s woeful home record this year, this was a welcome boost after conceding late equalisers in their previous two matches.

Wolves 2-1 Brighton

Morgan Gibbs-White denied 10-man Brighton the chance to secure Premier League safety after Wolves’ late show.

The midfielder’s last-minute strike earned a 2-1 comeback win at Molineux following Lewis Dunk’s game-changing red card.

The Seagulls skipper was sent off after the break for pulling back Fabio Silva, having given the visitors a first-half lead.

Adama Traore levelled with 14 minutes left and Graham Potter’s side had been in complete command until Dunk walked.

Aston Villa 1-3 Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s comeback kings did it again as Manchester United overcame Aston Villa to delay Manchester City’s coronation.

Fresh from sealing their place in the Europa League final against Villarreal, the Red Devils turned their focus to Villa Park as they kicked off an unenviable run of three Premier League matches in five days.

Bertrand Traore’s stunner had Villa dreaming of a first home league victory against United since 1995, but Solskjaer’s side dug deep and secured a 3-1 triumph – a competition record 10th comeback win of the season.

West Ham 0-1 Everton

Dominic Calvert-Lewin dashed West Ham’s dreams of the Champions League as Everton battled to a 1-0 win at the London Stadium.

Calvert-Lewin’s first-half strike was enough to secure three points for the Toffees and keep them in the hunt for Europe.

It was Everton’s 11th away win of the season, with only their poor home form preventing them from being in the mix for the top four themselves.

Hammers manager David Moyes turned Everton from relegation candidates to the Champions League in 2005, but his chances of repeating the trick with West Ham are now fading fast.

Full match report

Arsenal 3-1 West Brom

West Brom’s Premier League relegation was confirmed as Arsenal returned to winning ways to sink Sam Allardyce’s side.

The Baggies are the eighth club Allardyce has managed in the Premier League but a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium means the former England boss has been relegated from the division for the first time.

The writing had been on the wall for some time and, despite a good start here, goals from Emile Smith Rowe and Nicolas Pepe had them on the ropes. Matheus Pereira reduced the arrears with a memorable strike but Willian’s first Arsenal goal from a late free-kick sealed the Baggies’ fate.

Fulham 0-2 Burnley

Fulham were relegated from the Premier League following a 2-0 home defeat to Burnley.

Scott Parker’s men went into the game needing a win to avoid the drop, but yet again struggled in the final third and were unable to find the breakthrough.

Ashley Westwood slid the ball home to give Burnley a first-half lead, with Chris Wood’s effort from distance following soon after as the Clarets secured their place in next season’s top flight.

Man Utd 1-2 Leicester

Caglar Soyuncu’s thumping header gave Leicester’s top-four hopes a huge shot in the arm as they condemned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s scratch Manchester United side to the defeat that saw Manchester City crowned Premier League champions.

The hosts’ 10 changes at Old Trafford gave Brendan Rodgers’ stuttering outfit a great chance to get their Champions League qualification push back on track ahead of playing in their first FA Cup final in 52 years.

Leicester took that opportunity as they won a league match at Old Trafford for the first time since 1998, with Soyuncu sealing a 2-1 triumph after Mason Greenwood had cancelled out Luke Thomas’ stunning early volley.

Full match report

Southampton 3-1 Crystal Palace

Danny Ings scored twice – including his 100th goal in club football – as Southampton picked up only a fourth Premier League win of 2021 by coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace 3-1.

Saints top scorer Ings stylishly marked his return from a two-game injury absence by registering either side of a goal from strike partner Che Adams.

Christian Benteke had put Palace ahead inside just two minutes, while Eagles captain Luka Milivojevic squandered a first-half penalty to restore the visitors’ advantage.

Chelsea 0-1 Arsenal

Jorginho’s misplaced back-pass helped gift Emile Smith Rowe the only goal as Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 to stop the Blues moving third in the Premier League.

Italy midfielder Jorginho’s miscued pass left the out-of-position Kepa Arrizabalaga scrambling across goal, with the Spain stopper forced to parry off the line.

Smith Rowe capitalised on a rare Chelsea error under Thomas Tuchel and slotted home, for Arsenal’s third-straight Premier League victory.

Aston Villa v Everton, 6pm on NOW via BT TV

In a quirk of the re-arranged fixture list, Aston Villa and Everton meet in the Premier League for the second time in 12 days as Dean Smith’s side host Carlo Ancelotti’s men at Villa Park.

Villa took the spoils at Goodison Park when Anwar El Ghazi’s late winner secured the three points after Dominic Calvert-Lewin has cancelled out Ollie Watkins’ opener.

It capped a frustrating run of home form for Everton who are without a win in four matches on Merseyside. Yet away from Goodison, The Toffees are a different prospect with 10 points from a possible 12 in their previous four on the road.

The 1-0 win over West Ham means Everton are back in the conversation for the European places and another away victory would see them leapfrog Tottenham and move into seventh place – the final Europa League qualification spot.

The hosts Villa were beaten 3-1 at Old Trafford last time out despite taking the lead through Bertrand Traore. Smith was less than impressed with the officiating, labelling the decisions to award United a penalty and send Watkins off as “pathetic”.

The Villa boss will hope to have far less to say about the referee come full time on Thursday as his side look to propel themselves into the top half – quite an achievement for a team who stayed up by just one point in 2019/20.

Man Utd v Liverpool, 8.15pm on NOW via BT TV

It’s the fourth game of Manchester United’s run of seven fixtures in 20 days as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men play the rearranged fixture against rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

After the initial game was postponed due to fan protests, with hundreds breaking into the Theatre of Dreams, United now face Liverpool on Thursday evening just two days after defeat to Leicester which handed the Premier League to Manchester City.

While Solskjaer chose to rest players against The Foxes, he may be tempted to play a stronger XI against Jurgen Klopp’s men in a fixture that will mean a whole lot more to the supporters.

For Liverpool it’s a huge game in the hunt for Champions League qualification. Chelsea’s surprise home defeat to Arsenal opens the door for Klopp’s side who have two games in hand on The Blues.

After a goalless draw in the league and a 3-2 thriller that went the way of United in the FA Cup, Liverpool will hope to avenge their rivals come Thursday night.
