Last night, Newcastle United and Manchester United played out what was hopefully the last dreary match of the 2010/11 Premier League season.
And while Javier Hernandez's unsuccessful penalty appeal in stoppage time was the only notable moment in a tepid encounter, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson could rue his side's inability to break down a stubborn Magpies defence.
The 0-0 result means that the leaders will be keeping a close eye on the tonight's two games as Chelsea have a final fling at pulling off what is surely Mission Impossible–defending their title—and Arsenal clash with Spurs at White Hart Lane knowing that only a victory will keep their hopes alive of winning a first trophy in six years.
There are six games remaining for most teams. Among these are 12 derbies, two clashes between the top four sides and one between the bottom four.
In the context of the previous 32 rounds, there is every chance that the championship, European places and relegation struggle will be decided on the last matchday, Sunday 22 May—especially as there are only eight points separating Aston Villa in 10th place from rivals Wolves in 20th.
So what will make the last five weeks of the season memorable? In this slideshow, I give you ten reasons to witness what could be a spectacular end to a dramatic season.
