Just as some teams rejoice at their new status in the English Premier League with one more match to go, a few other other teams found the weekend uninteresting and filled with a mixture of sorrow and uncertainty based on their performances.
Manchester City’s last match of the season at Etihad, which serves as Manuel Pellegrini’s send-forth match was met with a heavy blow as Arsenal forced his side to a 2-2 draw, truncating their hope of finishing top four this season. Chelsea was met with a heavy blow as the black cats thrash them 3-2 to keep them in the ninth position of the table irrespective of what happens on last day of match.
Newcastle slipped back to the relegation zone after failing to score against Aston Villa, a goal was what Benitez men needed but it did not come and that meant going back with one more match left. Former title contenders Tottenham did not miss out in the shock as they were beaten at home by Southampton.
