Hooligan's Daily: Hull's loss ends relegation race with Tigers going down

Yesterday's Scores
Premier League

Crystal Palace 4-0 Hull City
(Zaha 3', Benteke 34', Milivojevic PK 85', van Aanholt 90')

West Ham 0-4 Liverpool
(Sturridge 35', Coutinho 57', 62', Origi 76')

Tottenham 2-1 Manchester United
(Wanyama 6', Kane 48')-(Rooney 71')

Manchester United are now officially out of the top four race thanks to this loss. Their only recourse for the Champions League would be taking down Ajax in the Europa League final. Meanwhile, Liverpool continues to control their own top four fate. A win in their final game of the year or anb Arsenal loss will send them to Europe next season. Same goes for Manchester City, who have a pair of games left.

On the other end of the table, Hull City's loss officially closes the relegation race. The Tigers will join Middlesbrough and Sunderland in the Championship next season with Newcastle and Brighton coming up in their place so far.

La Liga Alaves 3-1 Celta Vigo
(Garcia 5', Feddal 18', Deyverson 37')-(Aapas PK 78')

(Prieto 31', Bautista 85')-(Hernandez 45', Recio 75')

Villarreal 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Real Madrid remains in control of their own destiny at the top thanks to an extra game remaining. They are tied with Barcelona on points, but their midweek match at Celta Vigo would give them the lead once again.

Serie A Inter Milan 1-2 Sassuolo
(Eder 70')-(Iemmello 36', 50')

Bologna 3-1 US Pescara
(Destro 8', 90+1', Di Francesco 48')-(Bahebeck 24')

AS Roma 3-1 Juventus
(De Rossi 25', El Shaarawy 56', Nainggolan 65')-(Lemina 21')

Roma's defeat of Juventus keeps the title race open with two matches left to play. Juve have a four point advantage over their Roman rivals, so they would still have to drop points twice in order to lose out on the trophy at the end. Italy is the only one of the big leagues with two weekends remaining.

Ligue 1 AS Monaco 4-0 Lille
(Falcao 6', 69', Silva 45', Alonso OG 89')

Bastia 2-0 Lorient

(Thomasson 16', Sala 51', 78', Nakoulma 69')-(Deaux 74')

Nice 0-2 Angers
(Ndoye 35', Ekambi 90+3')

St. Etienne 0-5 Paris-Saint Germain
(Cavani 2', 72', Moura 38', 78', Draxler 90')

PSG are trying hard to keep the chase alive, but they are going to gall victim to Monaco's goal difference. The high flying Monégasques hold an unbelievable +73 goal difference, which makes them impossible to catch. The title isn't technically official, yet. But it should be before the final day of the season as Monaco will host St. Etienne on Wednesday, where a draw will be enough to end PSG's four year stranglehold on Ligue 1. It will be their seventh title overall, and their first since 1999-2000 and since returning to the top flight in 2013.
