Sunderland's Premier League survival plight was handed a monumental boost on Saturday after the Black Cats leapfrogged above north-east rivals Newcastle United following a 3-2 comeback win over Chelsea.
The Magpies could only clinch a 0-0 stalemate in their visit to Aston Villa, meaning they could be relegated as early as Wednesday, when Sunderland play host to Everton at the Stadium of Light.
Champions Leicester City officially finally got the chance to collect their Premier League trophy after defeating Everton 3-1 at King Power Stadium in the evening fixture.
Meanwhile, West Ham United suffered their first home Premier League defeat since August, falling 4-1 to Swansea City in their second-to-last match at Upton Park.
Manchester United's earlier 1-0 win at Norwich City means the Hammers' Champions League hopes look all but over, with Juan Mata sealing a slim victory for the Red Devils at Carrow Road in the early kick-off.
Crystal Palace also booked their first league win in almost a month after downing Stoke City 2-1, while Bournemouth hit back from a goal down to draw 1-1 against West Bromwich Albion.

Hammers Top-Four Hopes Shattered
With a Tuesday fixture against Manchester United seemingly on their mind, West Ham came unglued on Saturday. Goals from Wayne Routledge, Andre Ayew, Ki Sung-yueng and Bafetimbi Gomis sealed a dramatic win for Swansea.
To the Welsh outfit's credit, they were well worthy of all three points, and the Daily Mail's Lee Clayton could only ponder where the east Londoners went so wrong:
It wasn't even a West Ham player that grabbed their late consolation, as Swans youngster Stephen Kingsley finished into his own net, and BBC Final Score pundit Dion Dublin cited a lack of strike support as the reason for their downfall, per Match of the Day:
West Ham now remain five points below fourth-placed Manchester City with two games remaining in their campaign, and the Citizens can end the Hammers' top-four hopes with a win over Arsenal on Sunday.
It's been an incredible first season under Bilic, replete with memorable moments, but an apparent lack of experience and nous in these situations was clear in Saturday's capitulation.
Black Cats Claw Chelsea Down to Size
Sunderland fans may well have held some hope of a result going in at the break 2-1 down to Chelsea on Saturday, but not many may have expected manager Sam Allardyce's side to actually complete the comeback.
Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic netted either side of a Wahbi Khazri thunderbolt volley in the first half, but the worst was yet to come for the Blues, as touched upon by the Telegraph:
Far detached from the Jose Mourinho teams of years gone by, Chelsea struggled to retain their lead and allowed Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe two goals in the space of three minutes to turn the tie around.
Sunderland climbed out of the relegation zone thanks to their win, and with a game in hand over Newcastle, they can now have an almost poetic hand in their rivals' fate next week, per football writer Brian Durand:
Newcastle's limp 0-0 draw at already-relegated Villa was almost befitting of two sides who have failed to entertain much this season, while Sunderland's comeback showed the tenacity of a team fighting for their future.
Blues captain John Terry was shown his marching orders five minutes into added time after being issued a second yellow card, and Sunderland reaped the rewards of a persistent, season-defining display.
