Well the final week of the action has come to a close as we bid farewell to what has been a fantastic fantasy premier league season and as the dust settles on round 38 we take one last look at the weekend’s action in our usual Monday’s Managers Notes.
Heading into round 38 it seemed to be all about Arsenal and Tottenham, with both sides expected to go all out to secure the fourth and final Champions League fantasy investment in the sides looked wise but as we have learnt over the season you can never be 100% sure and once again we were all left a little disappointed as both sides scratched out a 1-0 win.
Those two games a side there were still plenty of points on offer on Sunday, so let’s have one last look at where they came from.
Lukaku Reminds Chelsea He Is Still There
They say that the last day of the season always throws up a surprise or two and while most the places that mattered had already been decided there was still one surprise to be found on the final day of fixtures.
Bale Couldn’t Save Tottenham
Gareth Bale was once again on the score sheet as he scored another stunning late winner for Tottenham, but despite his side’s 1-0 win over Sunderland it was not enough to win the battle to qualify for the Champions League on Sunday.
Mata Returns For One Last Flourish
Going into the last weekend of the season Chelsea knew that their Champions League position for next season was secure and having already won the Europa League Sunday’s game with Everton was of little importance.
West Ham Finish Strong As Nolan And Carroll Shine
Heading into Sunday’s fixture with Reading we expected to see Andy Carroll continue his good run of form, but one that we didn’t expect was the performance by Kevin Nolan as the Hammers ran out 4-2 winners.
Arsenal Stumble to Fourth Spot
As Sunday approached all the talk was about just who would get the fourth and final champions league place and with the Gunners heading to St James Park it was expected that they would cruise to victory, it wasn’t the case.
City Fall Apart On Final Day
They do say that on any given day that anything can happen, especially in football. Sunday turned out to be one of those days as the former Champions Manchester City fell apart and lost out to the Canaries at the Eithad.
