Chelsea are Premier League champions after beating Palace 1-0. Manchester City are 2nd with Arsenal still to play tomorrow sitting 3rd and Manchester United stay 4th 5 points above Liverpool with 3 games left.

Villa, Leicester and Sunderland all won meaning the fight to beat the drop with 3 games left is going down to the fire. QPR and Burnley both lost meaning they are drifting further and further away.

Burnley are bottom and are 8 points away from safety so they must win all 3 remaining games to stand a chance of staying up. QPR are 7 points from safety. Sunderland are 1 point from safety with Leicester and Hull 1 point out of the relegation zone. Newcastle’s poor run has seen them plummet and are now only 2 points outside the relegation zone along with Villa

Boxing

Floyd Mayweather beat Manny Pacquiao over 12 rounds Saturday night. For me though the big talking point is the so-called injury. Instead of just saying I lost fair and square Pacquiao and his camp are stating he had an injury which he suffered in the build-up. At the end of the day if it was so bad pull out and ensure you are fully fit or just admit you were beaten by the better man. In the ring after the fight Manny was stating he thought he won, and then he states he was injured. Question I ask is which was it did you think you won, which the stats say you didn’t or were you injured make your mind up.
