Premier League Weekend Wrap Up

Manchester United is now on the brink of clinching the title after their home victory over Chelsea.  With a 6-point lead United needs merely one point in the next two matches to regain their status as Premier League champions. 

Liverpool continues their scorching hot play as they destroyed Fulham 5-2.  This victory combined with Tottenham's draw against Blackpool pushes the Reds into 5th place which is the final European spot in the league.

At the bottom of the table, Wolves jumped outside of the relegation zone with a 3-1 win over West Brom.  Despite the loss, 13th-placed West Brom is safe from relegation, but every team below them has some work to do if they want to return to the Premier next year.

After the jump I will recap my predictions from the weekend.

There is one midweek match on Tuesday.  Here is my prediction:
