Leicester City captain Wes Morgan lived the dreams of many a supporter as he lifted the coveted Premier League trophy at the King Power Stadium after his side put up an impressive performance to brush aside Everton 3-1. It was undoubtedly the best moment of the weekend as the Foxes magical campaign reached its climax on an extremely emotional day, with many terming it as the greatest sporting achievement in history. Opera star Andrea Bocelli serenaded the stadium with a spine-tingling rendition of Nessun Dorma that left Claudio Ranieri emotional. This will live long in the memory of every football fan out there.
Elsewhere, Sunderland continued their great escape after coming from behind twice to beat Chelsea 3-2 in a thrilling encounter while Newcastle were left to ponder what went wrong as they were unable to defeat an already relegated Aston Villa to climb out of the bottom three. Alex Neil’s situation doesn’t look too good either after his side fell to a 1-0 defeat, courtesy of a Sebastien Bassong defensive error. Crystal Palace registered their second victory in 2016 by overcoming Stoke 2-1, while West Brom held Bournemouth to a score draw at the Goldsands Stadium and Spurs were defeated by a Steven Davis-inspired Southampton.
The biggest upset of the weekend came at Upton Park, where Swansea brought West Ham’s 15-game unbeaten home run to an end in a result few saw coming. It definitely wasn’t the farewell that West Ham had in mind in their penultimate game ahead of their stadium move next season.
