West Brom’s Premier League season continued with a draw against Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday.

A missed first half penalty, in fairness a ‘saved penalty’ by Bournemouth ‘keeper Artur Boric, meant West Brom had to settle for a one-one draw following a late Cherries equaliser.

Boruc’s early mistake was taken advantage of by West Brom with Salomon Rondon heading home the opener, but he redeemed himself when he turned Craig Gardner’s penalty onto the crossbar and saved the follow up.

Matt Ritchie equalised for Bournemouth in the final 10-minutes with Craig Dawson also denied an Albion winner by the post with it now eight-matches without a win.

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 7th May 2016
Norwich 0-1 Man Utd
Aston Villa 0-0 Newcastle
Bournemouth 1-1 West Brom
Crystal Palace 2-1 Stoke
Sunderland 3-2 Chelsea
West Ham 1-4 Swansea
Leicester 3-1 Everton

Sunday 8th May 2016
Tottenham 1-2 Southampton
Liverpool 2-0 Watford
Man City 2-2 Arsenal

Norwich (one-nil) are now on the brink of being relegated from the Premier League after Manchester United beat them at Carrow Road. Survival, with two-matches to play, is possible but looking unlikely now.

Whereas Sunderland (three-two) will now be favourites to stay up after a surprise win over Chelsea, which wouldn’t have been expected with that one many would have had as a ‘banker’ of a Chelsea win.

Newcastle (nil-nil) would have also been expected to have been a banker too when they went to relegated Aston Villa but a draw at Villa Park means Sunderland could be relegated if the Black Cats win in midweek!

The Premier League trophy was presented to Leicester (three-one) following a win over Everton at the King Power Stadium, with this of course confirmed on Monday when Tottenham could only draw with Chelsea.

If the title wasn’t already secured it would have been confirmed this weekend with Spurs (two-one) losing to Southampton, who keep a Europa League place very much on.

As for the Champions League with Manchester City (two-two) held by Arsenal this leaves qualification, in the week they went out at the semi-final stage leading up to this match at the Etihad Stadium, leaves Manchester United in command as far as finish fourth goes!

Who was the Albion MotM in this game?
