UTD STUMBLE TO SUMMIT AS MANCHESTER DERBY LOOMS

Manchester United 2-2 Swansea
An entertaining game at Old Trafford as the home side knew a win would send them top ahead of rivals City's game later. It was the perfect start when Mkhitaryan put them in to an early lead, only for struggling Swansea to bounce back and score to quick goals to take the lead. Rashford equalised to earn Utd a point, which would prove enough to send them top on goal scored...

Everton 1-0 Manchester City
...because Everton beat City thanks to Bolasie's goal in the strong sunshine on Merseyside. City were poor throughout and it sets up GW33's clash between City and Utd perfectly.

Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham
Chelsea won for the first time in five games to move back in to the top four and level on points with their opponents. Vertoghen put the ball in to his own net from an Hazard shot, before Cahill's first of the season in stoppage time sealed a crucial victory for the hosts. The race for the last two Champions League spots is really tight now, after Arsenal hammered Stoke and Liverpool drew at Palace.

Brighton 3-0 Leicester
Brighton took a huge step towards survival with a deserved 3-0 win over sorry Leicester. All the goals for the home sides were tap ins, but make no mistake they were y far the better side. Worrying times for Leicester who now slip to 17th, just four points above the relegation zone with the worst attack in the league bar rock bottom Watford.

Elsewhere, Watford's relegation looks all but confirmed after a goalless draw at home to Bournemouth. Burnley beat West Brom which opens up the three-horse race for 7th and a Europa League spot. Newcastle drew 2-2 with Huddersfield with the visitors maybe going away thinking this was a missed opportunity to close the gap on the teams above them, and West Ham beat Southampton to all-but secure their Premier League status.

CITY EDGE PAST UNITED TO GO THREE CLEAR; ARSENAL MOVE IN TO TOP FOUR FOR FIRST TIME, RELEGATION FIGHT INTENSIFIES

Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United
The game that was billed the title decider went City's way as De Bruyne scored the only goal of a tense game to ensure Man City went top of the table with a three-point lead with just five games remaining. De Gea had made a wonderful save from Gabriel Jesus on to the post, but Utd failed to mark from the resulting thro in and De Bruyne beat the Utd keeper despite his best efforts. The visitors pushed hard for an equaliser and struck the outside of the post twice from narrow angles, but City held on to celebrate a famous win.

Arsenal 3-2 Southampton
The Gunners move in to the top four for the first time this season after racing in to a three-goal lead against Southampton. The visitors gave them a nerve ending with two goals in reply, but Arsenal held on to leapfrog Liverpool and Spurs, who both lost. Everton won a drab Merseyside derby with a late Bolasie strike, whilst Spurs were well beaten at Stoke.

Brighton 0-4 Huddersfield
A stunning performance from Huddersfield sucked Brighton right back in to the relegation mix and now leaves the Yorkshire club just one point from safety.

Leicester 2-3 Newcastle
Huddersfield have a chance because Leicester threw away a two-goal lead to lose at home to Newcastle. Mahrez and Okazaki seemingly had Leicester the points at half time, but the Magpies had other ideas as Perez scored twice either side of a Gayle strike to turn the game completely on it's head and leave Leicester in all kinds of trouble.

Bournemouth 4-4 Crystal Palace
Finally, we couldn't do a round-up without a report on this game. Palace needed the points in their own relegation battle but found themselves 4-1 down to a free-flowing Bournemouth side who looked unstoppable for the majority of this game. However, Palace got some new found belief and two quick own goals later, they could smell a point in this - and the duly got it when Townsend fired home to level against all the odds. They could even have nicked a win, but Benteke completely missed his kick in the dying seconds as the game ended 4-4.

Elsewhere, Watford look down despite earning a late point against Burnley, whilst West Brom relinquish a top seven spot for the first time this season after a 0-0 draw at home to Swansea. Chelsea beat West Ham 2-0 to go third, with defeats for Spurs and Liverpool already mentioned aiding the Blues' push for Champions League football.

LATE GOAL NOT ENOUGH AS WATFORD RELEGATED

Huddersfield 1-1 Watford
A huge game at the foot of the table in which both teams needed to win. Watford knew a point would only be enough to stay alive if Crystal Palace and Brighton didn't draw - more on that later. Huddersfield took the lead with a crisp strike from Kachunga, and they looked to be heading for a vital three points but for a mate corner, in which Chalobah forced over the line just as the clock hit full time to keep Watford alive, at least for a few minutes more...

Crystal Palace 0-0 Brighton
A tense game at Selhurst Park finished goalless with both sides not creating too many clear cut chances, meaning both stay above the drop zone by three points but more importantly, relegated Watford.

Burnley 0-1 Leicester
Leicester got their first win in five games to put a three point gap between themselves and the relegation zone, thanks to Albrighton's goal at Turf Moor.

Tottenham 3-1 Manchester City
After winning the Manchester derby and almost sealing the title, City were well beaten at Wembley as Spurs ran riot to earn a massive three points and climb back in to the top four.

Manchester United 1-1 West Brom
However, United couldn't capitalise on City's defeat as ex-Red Devil Jonny Evans struck late to earn WBA a point at Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, West Ham lost a seven goal thriller against Stoke, who are now safe. The Hammers maybe still have a bit of work to do, but should survive with a seven point gap from the drop zone. Chelsea scored a stoppage time penalty to draw at Southampton and stay third, whilst Liverpool moved above Arsenal - who lost at Newcastle thanks to a Dwight Gayle hat trick - by beating Bournemouth. Swansea beat Everton 2-0 to keep their slim survival hopes alive.

THINGS LOOK BLEAK FOR SWANSEA AND HUDDERSFIELD

Defeats in GW35 have left Swansea and Huddersfield in deeper relegation trouble as the writing looks on the wall for both clubs.

Swansea fought valiantly at leaders Man City but succumbed to Aguero's 18th strike of the season, leaving them six points from safety with a worse goal difference.

Huddersfield had got their GD back within giving them a fighting chance, but they were completely overpowered by a dominant Chelsea who look to claim third spot.

It's as you were in the title race, whilst there's still all to play for in the top four race despite all Chelsea's rivals dropping points.

SWANSEA RELEGATED; MAN CITY REMAIN ON COURSE FOR TITLE, HUDDERFIELD FACE IMPOSSIBLE

Swansea 0-1 Chelsea
Hazard scored the only goal of the game as Swansea were relegated from the Premier League. After their loss, Crystal Palace just had to avoid defeat to send the Welsh side down, and they beat Leicester with a stoppage time goal to seal Swansea's fate. Chelsea remain strong favourites for third, but face Liverpool at home next.

West Ham 0-1 Manchester City
A goal of the season contender as Walker scored his first of the season with an arrowed shot from the edge of the box which went in off the crossbar and post to keep City top with two games to go.

Manchester United 1-0 Arsenal
City responded after United had briefly gone top by edging Arsenal at Old Trafford. Rashford scored the only goal as Arsenal's Champions League hopes look all but over.

Huddersfield 1-1 Everton
A controversial, late penalty earned Huddersfield a point against Everton to keep their survival hopes alive. However, the point now means they must win one of their remaining two fixtures - Man City (a) and Arsenal (h). They face a near impossible task and will be relegated if they don't at least match either Brighton or Leicester's result in GW37.

MANCHESTER CITY ARE CHAMPIONS

Manchester City have won the 2017/18 Premier League title after thrashing Huddersfield 4-0 at the Etihad. Two goals from Aguero helped them to an easy victory, although they had an early scare when Kachunga hit the post with the score still goalless. City's win meant United had to win, but they were beaten 3-1 at Brighton who ensured their survival at the same time, and sent the City fans in to raptures back in Manchester.

Well done on completing the season in record time and pleased to see that we survived. I string my league out to finish when the actual season ends. What's next ?

Thanks, much appreciated and hope you’ve enjoyed reading the reports, albeit if they were a little nervy at times as a Brighton fan! You can rest easy tonight :D

World Cup next. I plan to finish this season sometime over the Easter weekend, then have a month off to rest and prepare the stadium for the big event in Russia.

As for club football next season, I’m dubious to do another full PL season. I’m edging towards a Champions League with the top four from my league, plus some already pre-confirmed teams from across the continent. Nothing is decided yet though - the only definite is this summer’s World Cup.

TOP FOUR RACE GOES TO FINAL DAY

After the Premier League title and relegation were decided earlier in GW37, it was left to the best of the rest as the chase for Champions League football goes to the last day of the season.

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool
Salah sneaked on to the top scorers list after scoring against his old club, before Firmino made sure of the points with the last kick of the game. It means Liverpool must beat Brighton on the last day at home, and hope for dropped points from either Chelsea or Spurs to finish in the top four - a draw won't be enough doe to their inferior goal difference. Chelsea will still guarantee a top four spot if they win their last game.

West Brom 0-1 Tottenham
Chelsea and Spurs just need to win their final games. West Brom were dominant throughout this game, but Spurs scored with their only shot on goal as WBA left Eriksen free in the dying seconds and he made no mistake to put Spurs in control of their own destiny. WBA remain 7th but only on GD, and will need a win with Everton and Burnley still in with a shout of making the Europa League.

GW38 order of play will be revealed shortly. Stay tuned.

CHELSEA STUMBLE AS LIVERPOOL AND SPURS REACH CHAMPIONS LEAGUE, BURNLEY DEFY ODDS TO FINISH 7TH

Chelsea were left frustrated as their final day draw at Newcastle meant they missed out on the Champions League at the expense of Liverpool and Tottenham.

Liverpool had beaten Brighton before Chelsea's draw, and Spurs completed their job with ease to finish third.

Burnley hammered Bournemouth with their performance of the season, and the other results went perfectly for them as Everton lost at West Ham and West Brom were beaten at Crystal Palace.

Here is the final table, and we hope you have enjoyed the 2017/18 Premier League subbuteo season.
