Five things we learned from the PL

Manchester United affirmed their place in the Champions League next season with a 2-1 triumph over Arsenal, yet the race for a main four complete underneath them headed up as Chelsea jumped on a goof by Liverpool at home to Stoke.
Marouane Fellaini

At the opposite end of the table, the fight to maintain a strategic distance from the drop likewise heightened as triumphs for West Brom and Southampton mean no side has yet been consigned with only two days of the season to go.

Here, AFP Sports takes a gander at five things we gained from the Premier League end of the week:

FELLAINI BALL BEARS FRUIT FOR MOURINHO 

With consideration centered for a great part of the day on Arsene Wenger in the restricting hole on his last visit to Old Trafford as Arsenal chief, Jose Mourinho didn't miss the opportunity to take the spotlight when the shot came.

Mourinho, arms outstretched, pivoted to confront the Manchester United fans and media and held his posture for a few seconds in festivity after Marouane Fellaini's stoppage-time victor.

The Portuguese's football has regularly been condemned for lacking innovation or exictement this season, however his sending of the enormous Belgian as a battering ram in the end arranges demonstrated profoundly successful.

Minutes sooner, Fellaini had likewise hit the post as Arsenal's failure to adapt to the physical approach underlined why they have attempted to contend at the best end of the association in Wenger's last decade in control.

CHELSEA'S CHASE IS ON 

Half a month prior even Chelsea's own players appeared to have surrendered any expectation of Champions League football at Stamford Bridge next season.

In any case, a late-season lurch by Liverpool in the class, with their brains particularly centered around achieving the Champions League last this week, has revived trusts in the Blues.

A 1-0 win at Swansea took Chelsea to inside six purposes of Liverpool with an amusement close by and with Jurgen Klopp's men to visit Stamford Bridge one weekend from now.

Liverpool do, however, appreciate the protection of a much prevalent objective distinction so triumph at home to Brighton on the last day of the season will seal a best four wrap up.

ROY'S REVIVAL COMPLETE AT PALACE 

Roy Hodgson has once in a while been said as a possibility for chief of the year grants, yet the previous England director can claim to have made as great a showing with regards to as anybody outside Pep Guardiola at tenacious champions Manchester City this season.

No side had ever gotten off to a more regrettable begin in the Premier League than Palace's keep running of seven straight annihilations without scoring an objective.

Quick to reestablish some credit to his notoriety after England's humiliating Euro 2016 exit to Iceland, Hodgson, 70, went up against the test and a 5-0 whipping of Leicester on Saturday took the south Londoners up to eleventh in the table, six focuses clear of the assignment zone.

WEST BROM RUN FILLED WITH REGRET 

West Brom fought off assignment for a moment straight end of the week with a 1-0 win at Newcastle to paw to inside five purposes of wellbeing with only two diversions remaining.

The Baggies have now won the same number of focuses in four diversions under guardian chief Darren Moore than in 18 matches amid Alan Pardew's disastrous four-month rule - a run that still looks set to sentence them to assignment.

Moore's short spell has yielded a well known win at Old Trafford and returning from 2-0 down to hold Liverpool a weekend ago.

In any case, a fine run additionally raises the lament of imagine a scenario in which he had been given the shot half a month sooner as the club stuck by Pardew until the point that it was past the point of no return.

NO LET UP FOR RECORD-CHASING CITY 

With the Premier League title wrapped up two weeks prior and the World Cup approaching for the majority of Manchester City's stars, it would have been simple for Pep Guardiola's men to down apparatuses in the last a long time of an essential battle.

In any case, on the proof of Sunday's 4-1 destruction of West Ham, the champions are resolved to complete in style as they offer to modify the record books.

City's walk around east London, including strikes from Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho and a possess objective from their previous safeguard Pablo Zabaleta, gave them a Premier League record-equalling 30th win this season, while likewise taking them to 102 alliance objectives this term.

City aren't done yet, requiring two objectives and three focuses from their three outstanding diversions to break the Premier League single-season objective and focuses records, which are at present held by Chelsea.
