Predict the Premier League: Stoke are the champions and Arsenal beat the drop

Bookmark and Share

Stoke City went into the final weekend of the season with a 19-point lead over Manchester United's Peter Lee but there was no dramatic twists and turns in this title race. United recorded nine points on the final day to Stoke's seven, but the Potters clinched the title with 17 points to spare.

Phil Eccleston will see his name etched on our coveted trophy alongside previous winners. Last season it was Manchester City's Callum Rothwell who won it on the final day and the season before that Wolves stole it right at the death. Mr Eccleston had no such problem. He had the red and white ribbons tied on the trophy from September!

Aston Villa's Frank Pattison, who endured an awful season on the pitch under Alex McLeish, finished the season in third place on 282 points, five points clear of Blackburn's Terry Kennedy, who himself finished 10 points clear of Fulham's Neil Springate on 267.

At the foot of the table though it was a remarkable day for Arsenal's Don McMahon. His nerves must have been shredded at the Hawthorns as Arsenal held on to third place in the league and his points haul of nine saw him avoid the drop ahead of Everton's Chris Goodwin.

Everton did finish ahead of Liverpool's Mark Williams to compound their misery, taking the Reds down with them, but Swansea's Jim White propped up the table, despite ending the season with 10 points.

Here is the final table of the 2011/12 season.
