This past Sunday was Championship Sunday, the final match day of the 2014-15 EPL season. If you missed it here is a brief recap. Theo Walcott netted a hat trick as Arsenal steam rolled West Brom. Danny Ings scored the only goal of the match to give relegated Burnley a win over Aston Villa. League champions, Chelsea, beat Sunderland 3-1. Swansea City fell 1-0 to Crystal Palace. Tottenham were 1-0 victors over Everton with Harry Kane scoring the only goal. Hull City tied 0-0 with Manchester United, which was not enough to keep them in the Premier League. Leicester City destroyed QPR, who are also not going to be in the EPL next season, 5-1. Southampton lost to Manchester City, 2-0, meaning that they just fell short of playing in the Europa League. Newcastle United were victorious over West Ham United, 2-0. Stoke City shocked Liverpool, crushing them 6-1, but even with that terrible result the Reds will be in the 2015-16 Europa League. The 2014-15 English Premier League season has drawn to a close. Congratulations to Chelsea on winning the title. The EPL will return on August 8th.

Here is a brief recap of the first legs of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. Juventus stunned Real Madrid, beating them 2-1 (first leg). Barcelona destroyed Bayern Munich, 3-0, with Lionel Messi netting a brace (first leg).

Now for the second legs. Cristiano Roanldo converted a penalty in the 23rd minute to put Real Madrid ahead of Juventus in the match and on aggregate, but in the 57th minute former Real player, Álvaro Morata, scored to tie the match and send the Old Lady (Juventus) through to the UEFA Champions League Final (on aggregate). Bayern beat Barcelona, 3-2, but it wasn’t enough to send them through. Barcelona advanced on aggregate (which was 5-3) and will play Juventus on June 6th in Berlin to decide who will take home the trophy.

Here is a brief recap of match day 36’s Premier League action. Although Everton dominated the match, Sunderland won, 2-0. Aston Villa beat West Ham United, 1-0. Danny Ings’ goal in the 62nd minute gave Burnley a 1-0 win over Hull City. Sadly (for Burnley fans), it is confirmed that they are one of the teams that will be relegated to the Championship. Riyad Mahrez netted both goals in Leicester City’s victory against Southampton. Newcastle United tied West Brom, earning a valuable point that could be what keeps them in the EPL. Stoke City shocked Tottenham, crushing them 3-0. It wasn’t pretty, but Manchester United managed to pick up a (2-1) win and an important three points against Crystal Palace. QPR played horribly against Manchester City and were clobbered, 6-0. That loss also was confirmation that they will not be playing in the EPL next year. Chelsea drew Liverpool in a very dull match. Arsenal were unable to find the back of the net and ended up losing 1-0 to Swansea City. Well, that’s all for match day 36’s Premier League action.

Here is a brief recap of match day 35’s Premier League action. Newcastle United lost to Leicester City, 3-0, expanding their winless streak in the EPL to eight games and putting them only two points above the relegation zone. Christian Benteke netted a brace in Aston Villa’s win over Everton. After Steven Gerrard missed a penalty for Liverpool in the 79th minute, which would’ve put them ahead 2-1, it looked like they were only going to tie QPR, but in the 87th minute Gerrard redeemed himself by scoring the winning goal of the match. Sunderland beat Southampton, 2-1, with both of their goals coming from penalties. Swansea City were 2-0 victors over Stoke City. Burnley, who were one man down from the 23rd minute fell to West Ham United, 0-1, and currently sit last place in the table. Even with just 20% possession, West Brom managed to beat Manchester United, 1-0. Crystal Palace were unable to upset Chelsea, losing 1-0, confirming that the Blues are the 2014-15 EPL champions. Manchester City won 1-0 over Tottenham. Arsenal dominated against Hull City and deservedly won, 3-1. That’s all for match day 35’s Premier League action.
