Leicester City: Avoid defeat in West London thanks to late strike

Leicester City: Avoid defeat in West London thanks to late strike

After the staggering events surrounding football in North London today, we must stay true with the norm, and let Arsenal fans have the last say. Thank you all for following!

Rafa no closer to clearing up his future at Newcastle. After a game like this, surely it must be hard not to stay?

More news from Old Trafford, now appears to be some sort of joke?

Ranieri refusing to shed a couple of drops after what has been an incredible season for his side.

Arsene Wenger not exactly happy, despite the way today panned out…

While Claudio Ranieri rambles to the cameras, let’s just enjoy this strike from England hopeful Danny Drinkwater.

Slaven Bilic was left to rue the missed opportunities as they surrendered fifth place to Southampton…

Jurgen Klopp commented on the selections he made after they drew 1-1 at West Brom.

Pardew urging Palace fans to see the bigger picture after their drubbing at Southampton.

Looks like we will have to wait for this saga to be over!

Pochettino understandably sounding like he’s killed a man in his post-match presser…

A hugely sentimental afternoon for Chelsea legend John Terry with his future still unclear. Its possible he played his last game at Stamford Bridge today, and Guus Hiddink managed his…

We’ll be back shortly with all the reaction…

And we have the full time scores on memorable afternoons for Newcastle, Arsenal, Stoke, Southampton and Everton!

Well, Piers, you got your wish…

The story of a remarkable afternoon in the North East.

Poor Tottenham. This was meant to be their day…

The rout is complete. Get the banners at the ready, Spurs have failed in their task again…

A perfect couple of minutes for the Saints! Slaven Bilic looking rather glum…

I’m at a loss for words…

Rolando Aarons! Ridiculous scenes in Newcastle. They will be BEGGING for Rafa to stay!

LEICESTER CANTERING TO THE TITLE IN STYLE! They are ten points clear as it stands…

This is QUITE the couple of minutes at the Emirates! Olivier Giroud nets a hat-trick to put Arsenal comfortably in second place!

Southampton look like they have fifth in the bag again, providing things stay the same in Stoke!

G’warn Tim! Enjoy it mate…

Newcastle extend the lead! A debatable penalty for a ‘trip’ on Sissoko and Wijnaldum tucks it home!

WELL WELL WELL. Put the St Totteringham’s Day celebrations on hold, as Mitro does a Mitro and nearly ends Kyle Walker’s career. Easy decision for Anthony Taylor.

Danny Ings comes on for Liverpool, and what a reception!

Now then, Southampton perhaps not so secure after all…

Things go from bad to worse for Palace, but jubilation for Southampton look set to finish fifth as things stand! Martinez crosses for Pelle to nut home.

Chelsea lead at home to the Champions Leicester – Fabregas tucks home the penalty!

Meanwhile Stan Collymore continues to be the fount of all knowledge…

HUGE goal at St James Park – Spurs are RIGHT BACK IN IT!

A THIRD goal of the second half at Watford as Deeney levels from the spot!

Imbula levels for Stoke! That means Southampton jump above West Ham on having a one better goal difference!

What is going on at Goodison Park?! Unsworth in dreamland!

Bloody hell! I bet that took them a while to come up with!

Well that didn’t last long. The Black Cats pounce back into the lead…

And we have our first goal of what promises to be a busy second half! Prödl draws Watford level.

Well, at least Stoke have something to be happy about…

The storyline so far? If not the United abandonment, then probably Arsenal fans joy on what has been dubbed “St Totterinhgam’s day”…

The goal of the first 45 minutes? Probably this sweet solo effort from Jordan Ibe…

What a first half! As it stands, Arsenal are in second, Spurs slip to third, West Ham up to fifth and Southampton knock United down to seventh!

Meanwhile Alan Brazil struggles to convey just how outraged he is about the security, you know, doing their job.

Things just got a bit more interesting at the Liberty Stadium as Swansea equalise moments before half time! Ayew’s free-kick evades Hart via a deflection.

Southampton take the lead at home! They push United down to seventh! Eight in eight for Sadio Mane!

Hold on to your hats folks, Everton might actually win a game of football!

Fair play Villa, this is something.

More joy for fans of North East clubs as Sunderland now take the lead at Vicarage Road!

MITROVIC DOUBLES THE LEAD FOR NEWCASTLE! I think we all know a song that’s pretty apt for this occasion…

Chelsea’s official Twitter failing to even acknowledge this. Great gesture from the Chelsea fans, but will it be enough to keep JT?

That goal at the Britannia (or should I say Bet365) puts Manchester United in sixth place as things stand, with Southampton just a goal away from putting them seventh. Meanwhile in Newcastle…

The goals are coming in thick and fast here! Now West Ham lead; Antonio the hero again…

Meanwhile in the West Midlands, Liverpool level thanks to Jordan Ibe. Described as a great individual effort…

Well played, Bwin, well played.

Arsenal second as it stands! Wijnalum puts the Toon in front, and you can sense the disappointment…

West Brom take the lead at home to Liverpool. Rondon reaches double figures for the Baggiest in all comeptitions!

Meanwhile…breaking news from Old Trafford. This is not good.

THAT IS THE GOAL THAT CITY WANTED – Iheanacho continues to impress. Mike Dean overrules the linesman who put his flag up. Brave call, but either way City lead!

And the first goal of the day goes to Arsenal! No surprises here, its Giroud compiling the misery…

Wonder if it went by the name of Jose Mourinho?

We have our first typo of the day! Cheers Villa!

A stand full of happy Mackems!

Worth noting that Jack Wilshere is making his first start for the Gunners since the last game of last season!

As we approach kick-off in our ten 3:00pm games, a moment of class from Chelsea as they congratulate their former coach…

These are worrying scenes. Meanwhile it has been announced there will be NO change to the kick-off time at the Liberty Stadium.

Oh dear, this doesn’t sound too good. Hopefully precautionary. How will City be feeling right now knowing that their fourth-place rivals will have 45 minutes knowing their circumstances?

It WAS getting busy. But seriously, we hope everything at Old Trafford is resolved quickly and nothing serious comes of it…

The whole stadium at Old Trafford has been evacuated due to a security alert! Kick-off has been moved back 45 minutes! What is it with United and delaying kick-offs?

Big fan of this from West Ham. Any kind of graphical statistical comparison scores highly in my books…

Not Premier League, but well done to Millwall on a textbook away play-off first leg. They won 3-1 at Valley Parade against Bradford to put themselves firmly in the driving seats for Friday’s return leg. Plymouth hosts Portsmouth later tonight, that finished 2-2 after the first 90 minutes…

Fresh from their Boleyn farewell, here’s the Hammers team for their trip to Stoke…

And on to the final team news for the final games of the season! Here’s Mark Hughes’ Stoke City side. Now that’s a proper graphic…

Meanwhile, in Scotland, the Champions are celebrating in style! What a moment for Jack Aitchison!

Big Sam makes NINE changes to the starting XI that beat Everton on Wednesday night…

Watford, who were soundly beaten by Norwich in midweek, return home to face the already safe Sunderland. A possible last home match for Ighalo?

In fairness, we expected a weakened team from Liverpool ahead of their big European final. This will be interesting…

Tony Pulis names the following team as they welcome Liverpool to The Hawthorns. They’ve even got a cool little video too!

David Unsworth and Joe Royle are in caretaker charge of the Tofees today, who could finish as low as 16th depending on results. Relegated Norwich meanwhile search for a bit of pride…

Everton: Howard, Baines, Stones, Jagielka, Pennington, Barry, McCarthy, Davies, Mirallas, Lukaku, Dowell

Norwich: Ruddy; Pinto, Martin, Bennett, Olsson; Redmond, Dorrans, O’Neil, Jarvis; Naismith, Jerome.

This could have been Newcastle’s big day, but instead there will be a damp atmosphere at St James Park as Spurs look to close out second place.

Newcastle: Darlow, Taylor, Janmaat, Dummett, Mbemba, Tiote, Wijnaldum, Sissoko, Colback, Townsend, Mitrovic

Spurs: Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Mason; Lamela, Eriksen, Son; Kane.

Southampton and Crystal Palace line-up like this…

Saints: Forster; Bertrand, Cuco Martina, Fonte, van Dijk; Wanyama, Tadic, Oriol Romeu, Mané, Davis; Long.

Palace: Speroni; Ward, Mariappa, Delaney, Souare; Mutch, McArthur, Jedinak (c), Puncheon; Gayle, Adebayor.

And here is the team for the doomed Villains. The graphic, much like their players commitment this season, is questionable at best…

Arsenal line up like this ahead of their final game of another ‘what could have been’ season…

Chelsea looking to end a disappointing season by putting a dampener on the Leicester celebration, if that’s even possible. Will this be a farewell for Matic, Ivanovic and possibly more?

The Foxes party bandwagon rolls into West London, and it lines up like this:

Awww, isn’t this sweet? In fact, the last time Chelsea lost at home to Leicester (in 2000), Ranieri took over at Stamford Bridge the following day. There is an element of ‘full-circle’ about today’s return for the Italian…

Swansea meanwhile make four changes. A damning sign for United fans?

Manchester City continue the partnership of Aguero and Iheanacho in their starting eleven:

Hart, Sagna, Otamendi, Mangala, Clichy, Fernando, Fernandinho, Navas, De Bruyne, Iheanacho, Aguero

Eddie Howe makes a few changes with his Bournemouth line-up…

Speaking of United, here is the line-up for Louis van Gaal’s boys. No Memphis again…

Manchester United will look to snatch fourth place if they can beat Bournemouth and get a favour from Swansea City, while Arsenal are looking to stop Spurs finishing above them for the first time since 1994. They need to beat Villa and hope Tottenham slip up at Newcastle. Team news for all games is expected shortly!

Hello and welcome to TEAMtalk’s live coverage of the final round of games in the Barclays Premier League. The top spot and bottom three places are already decided, but there is still plenty to play for in the ten 3:00pm kick-offs.
