Almost there

West Ham United can still avoid relegation even if they lose to Manchester United at Old Trafford next week.

Wigan's defeat at home to Middlesbrough this afternoon means that anything less than three points at Bramall Lane next weekend will see the Latics relegated - whilst Charlton have to beat both Tottenham (h) and Liverpool (a) to reach 39 points and overtake West Ham.

United took their tally for the season to 38 points with today's 3-1 win over Bolton, although Fulham's 1-0 win over Liverpool today virtually assured the Cottagers' safety.

The other United - Manchester - virtually wrapped up the League title today by beating Manchester City 1-0 at Eastlands this lunchtime.

Alan Curbishley will be hoping that Alex Furguson has his mind on the FA Cup Final when he selects his team for what will hopefully be a meaningless game for the home side.

Today's results

Fulham 1 Liverpool 0
West Ham United 3 Bolton Wanderers 1
Wigan Athletic 0 Middlesbrough 1

''Be fair, there is Newcastle United too; and I'm sure a score of others. I'm mean that plays into the arrogance of Man U fans who have said, there is only one Utd. as I read at Teamtalk.
