Premier league matches played during match day 36 did not disappoint as we witnessed actions and intrigues just as was expected.

The race for qualifying for the Champions League next season got even hotter among Chelsea, Leicester city and Manchester United as the three clubs battled to register wins

Meanwhile Arsenal defeated Champions league to boost their chances of qualifying for the Europa league just as Tottenham continued their recent upturn in form with a 3-1 win over Newcastle United.

A lone goal by Oliver Giroud was enough to snatch victory over Norwich city for Chelsea as the Blues remained 3rd on the log.

Meanwhile, a 2-0 win win over Sheffield United by Leicester city meant they occupy the last automatic qualifying spot for the Champions league next season. A first-half strike by Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray's counter-attacking goal ensured the Foxes stay fourth, a point behind third-placed Chelsea with two games remaining.

Their win also means they qualified for next season's Europa League at least. The Foxes went ahead when impressive 19-year-old debutant Luke Thomas crossed low to set up Perez after 29 minutes.

They should have extended their lead after the break but on-loan United goalkeeper Dean Henderson was in superb form to deny Harvey Barnes twice after being put through by Jamie Vardy.

However, as the game hung in the balance, substitute Gray, who came in for Barnes, collected Vardy's pass and beat Henderson to finally seal the win after 79 minutes.

Manchester United are on the 5th position after goals from Marcus Rasford and Anthony Martial in both halves secured a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The win also means that Manchester United have now gone unbeaten in their last 19 games in all competitions (W14 D5) - their longest such run since a 29-game streak ending in November 2010 under Alex Ferguson.

Other results also saw Arsenal beat Liverpool at the Emirate stadium, the Champions went ahead in the first half but Arsenal turned the match around in a fantastic manner. Wolves could only manage a draw against Burnley and Southampton also securing a draw against Brighton.
