Weekend in Numbers: Leicester City crowned champions and Norwich aim for an unlikely league double

Meanwhile, Arsenal aim to finish season on a high against Manchester City

As if the most remarkable season in the history of the Premier League was coming full circle, there was a strange symmetry to Leicester's title win on Monday.

Without the kick of a ball, Claudio Ranieri's men were crowned champions and for the second consecutive season the title was decided at Stamford Bridge. Not only that, Eden Hazard scored the decisive goal which meant Tottenham will continue their search for a top flight domestic title since 1961.

 

Leicester crowned champions, but Everton have plenty to play for

Pop open the champagne. Leicester have done it! Celebrations began at the start of the week and will likely continue until the end of the season. Claudio Ranieri's side will be crowned champions this Saturday night, with the formality of the Premier League trophy presentation gracing the King Power Stadium for the first time.

All eyes will be on Leicester, which might suit Roberto Martinez down to the ground. A disappointing season is likely to see him leave Goodison Park this summer, but the Everton manager will still aim to guide his team to a top table finish.

With three games remaining, Everton sit in 11th position and will need to pick up maximum point from fixtures against Leicester as well as Sunderland and Norwich, both sides fighting for Premier League survival.

Norwich target unlikely league double to boost survival chances

It's all too familiar for Norwich City. We're into the final stretch of the season and Alex Neil's men are scrapping for their top-flight status.

They're two points from safety and with three games remaining look to leapfrog Sunderland and Newcastle to send the pair to the Championship.

This weekend, they welcome Manchester United to Carrow Road aiming to complete a first league double over Louis van Gaal's side for the first time since the 1989-90 season.

The omens are not with Norwich; just two wins in their last 15 league games and have only won one of their last seven home games.

Arsenal aim to finish season on a high against Manchester City

Whatever fears there were with Arsenal finishing outside of the top four were allayed with their victory over Norwich and Manchester United's failure to beat Leicester at Old Trafford.

Arsene Wenger's side look to consolidate third place away to Manchester City this weekend.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have already lost five league games at home this season - as many as they had lost in their previous four league campaigns combined.

Arsenal have kept five clean sheets in their last seven league games and are unbeaten in their last eight.
