Stoke relegated from Premier League after Palace defeat

After a decade in the top flight Stoke City were relegated from the Premier League on Saturday when they blew a one goal lead to lose 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace. Paul Lambert's side are second bottom, three points from the safety zone, but with only one game remaining they are doomed. With fourth-bottom Swansea and third-bottom Southampton playing each other in midweek, it is impossible for Stoke to collect enough points to avoid slipping into the Championship. Stoke spent 10 seasons in the Premier League, but a…

Chelsea crowned Premier League champions after win at West Brom

WEST BROMWICH: Chelsea secured the Premier League title on Friday after substitute Michy Batshuayi's 82nd-minute goal earned Antonio Conte's side a hard-earned 1-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion. The Belgian striker's goal took Chelsea 10 points clear of second-place Tottenham Hotspur, who have only nine points left to play for. It is Chelsea's second title win in three seasons, their sixth in total, and comes at the end of former Juventus and Italy coach Conte's first season as manager. Conte, who claimed three…

Manchester United extend unbeaten run with 3-0 Leicester rout

LEICESTER: Manchester United continued their push for a top-four finish with a comfortable 3-0 victory at champions Leicester City on Sunday, extending their unbeaten Premier League run to 15 games. Henrikh Mkhitaryan open the scoring with a cool finish after he galloped onto Chris Smalling's header in the 42nd minute and, with Leicester's defence still recovering, Zlatan Ibrahimovic added a second two minutes later. Juan Mata stroked home their third goal after some delightful link up play with Mkhitaryan in the 49th…

Premier League: Mignolet denies Chelsea, Watford stun Arsenal

LONDON: Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet went from zero to hero as Premier League leaders Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw at Anfield, while Arsenal's title challenge was torpedoed by Watford's shock 2-1 win on Tuesday. Antonio Conte's Chelsea grabbed the lead in the 25th minute when David Luiz cheekily took a quick free-kick that flashed past Mignolet, who was caught out while he lined up his defensive wall. Mignolet looked bewildered that the Brazil defender's effort wasn't ruled out, but referee Mark Clattenburg…

Premier League: City thrashed by Everton, Ibrahimovic rescues United

MANCHESTER: Pep Guardiola suffered the largest league defeat of his managerial career as Manchester City were thrashed 4-0 by Everton, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic's late equaliser gave Manchester United a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Sunday. Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas put Everton in control at Goodison Park. Teenager Tom Davies scored a fine first goal for Everton in the closing stages and debutant Ademola Lookman completed the rout after coming on as an 89th minute substitute. It was another chastening…

Fans name goalpost as man of the match

LONDON: West Ham fans were so relieved by their team's 1-0 win over Hull that they named a goalpost as man of the match after the woodwork saved the Hammers three times. A Mark Noble penalty gave Slaven Bilic's side the three points in the Premier League clash at the London Stadium but Hull hit the woodwork on no less than three occasions from Andrew Robertson (twice) and Dieumerci Mbokani. "With 57 per cent of the vote congratulations to The Post on securing today's Man of the Match award!," tweeted West Ham after the…

Premier League: Fabregas earns Chelsea perfect 10, City and Liverpool win

LONDON: Chelsea maintained their stranglehold on the Premier League by beating Sunderland 1-0 on Wednesday to register their 10th successive win and move six points clear at the top of the table. Cesc Fabregas's first-half strike ensured the Blues took full advantage of Tuesday's slip-up by second-placed Arsenal to leave Liverpool, 3-0 winners at Middlesbrough, and Manchester City, who beat Watford 2-0, to keep up the chase. Manchester United continued their recent improvement with a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace and…

Premier League: Williams stuns Arsenal, Leicester brought low

LONDON: Ashley Williams's 86th-minute header ended Arsenal's 14-game unbeaten run and kept Arsene Wenger's side from the Premier League summit as Everton claimed a much-needed 2-1 win on Tuesday. Arsenal would have provisionally supplanted leaders Chelsea on goals scored with victory and took a 20th-minute lead when Alexis Sanchez's free-kick deflected in off Williams. But Seamus Coleman equalised with a 44th-minute header before Williams's first Everton goal ended his team's five-game winless run and sent Ronald…

Premier League: Liverpool and Manchester United thwarted in dramatic finales

LONDON: Premier League heavyweights Liverpool and Manchester United were caught by late sucker punches in two games that finished far more dramatically than they began on Sunday. Juergen Klopp's Liverpool wasted a chance to return to second place in the table, a point behind Chelsea, twice surrendering a two-goal lead before losing 4-3 in added time in a thriller at Bournemouth. United dropped two points at Everton after Marouane Fellaini conceded an 89th-minute penalty soon after the former Goodison Park favourite had…

Premier League: Mourinho sent off on bad day for Manchester United as Arsenal win again

MANCHESTER: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent off for the second time in a month on Sunday as the controversial coach watched his side draw 1-1 at home to West Ham United and lose more ground in the Premier League title race. On an afternoon when Arsenal moved within three points of top spot after Alexis Sanchez scored twice in a 3-1 home win over Bournemouth, Mourinho's hopes of seeing United roar back into contention foundered amid more Old Trafford drama. At the end of last month the Portuguese was…
