2005/2006 Premiership Finale

Today saw the end of the 2005/2006 Premiership. Although the race was won a couple of weeks ago by Chelski, there were still a few battles to be fought out in other places. Manchester United needed a win over Charlton in order to secure automatic qualification for the next Champions League. Fortunately they accomplished this with ease, cruising to a stylish 4 – 0 win. Arsenal needed a win over Wigan in order to have any chance of reaching 4th place (and a place in the Champions League qualifiers). Tottenham could have beaten them too it had the Spurs beaten West Ham, however a Henry hat trick saw the Gunners hold their end of the bargain, while West Ham’s Carl Fletcher and Yossi Benayoun secured their 2 – 1 victory over the Spurs. So the top four places in the Premiership, in descending order, go to:

1. Chelsea
2. Manchester United
3. Liverpool
4. Arsenal

Now with the bad news… down at the other end of the table, Birmingham have been unable to scramble out of the last 3, although this had been settled since last weekend, which means they’ll be joining their neighbours (West Brom), as well as Sunderland, in the championship next season. Sorry to all you Blues and West Brom fans! :(
