Fulham thumped seven in their crowning game with Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson starting, Josh Sargent was relegated and injured with Norwich, Christian Pulisic continued his sub role with Chelsea while teenager Alex Mighten scored for Forest.

Everton 1 – 0 Chelsea

Christian Pulisic’s recent heroics against West Ham weren’t enough to earn himself a starting position in Thomas Tuchel’s lineup, however he was brought on in the 68th minute to try to make an impact in their loss at Everton.

Everton got the go-ahead goal just after halftime after a bad touch from Cesar Azpilicueta, and Richarlson was on hand to dispatch for the 46th-minute lead.

Chelsea mounted a comeback putting heavy pressure on their relegation-threatened hosts, but Jordan Pickford made incredible save after incredible save to thwart the London side.

Chelsea stay in third place in the Premier League and play Saturday against Wolves in their next fixture.

Aston Villa 2 – 0 Norwich

Josh Sargent experienced double-heartbreak on his Norwich return from injury, being forced off after 15 minutes, and watching Norwich get officially relegated from the Premier League.

Sargent had been sidelined for a month with an ankle injury, and was taken off in the 81st minute after having been brought on only in the 67th minute, after head coach Dean Smith’s gamble led him to aggravate the injury.

Aston Villa scored in the 41st minute from Ollie Watkins, a brilliant one-on-one goal. Danny Ings added the nail to the coffin in added time, his 93rd minute scrappy goal officially relegating Norwich to the Championship.

Sargent will likely be out for the rest of the season with four games left to play, with Norwich continuing heir death march against West Ham in their next outing on Sunday.

Fulham 7 – 0 Luton Town

Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson went the distance for Fulham as they smashed seven past Luton Town to be crowned Champions of the Championship.

Aleksander Mitrovic scored his incredible 43rd goal of the season in the 92nd minute to round off the scoring. Tom Cairney opened the scoring in the 29th minute, with Kenny Tete adding the second in the 39th minute. Fabio Carvlaho made it three in the 54th minute before Fulham ran rampant in the second half.

Mitrovic scored his first in the 62nd minute while Bobby Decordova-Reid scored another just three minutes later. Jean Michael Seri was a late substitution, and scored within minutes of being on the field, scoring in the 79th minute.

Fulham have one more game to play, having scored 99 goals this season. Up next is Sheffield United, where Mitrovic will hope to add to his record-breaking season, having scored the most goals in the Championship.

Nottingham Forest 5 – 1 Swansea City

Ethan Horvath was on the bench but teenager Alex Mighten was a second half substitute who scored in Forest’s thumping win over Swansea City.

It was a calamitous start for the visitors as Cyrus Christie scored an own goal after fumbling over his own goalkeeper, and shown a red for trying to deny the ball with his arm. The ball was adjudged to have gone over the line, so the red was rescinded to a yellow card and the 22nd-minute goal stood. 

Swansea pulled the game level just a few minutes later through Michael Obafemi, but it wouldn’t stick. Sam Surridge would go on to score a hat-trick with goals in the 48th, 52nd, and 69th minute to put the game to bed.

One last goal was up for grabs from the young Mighten, who fought his way to a scrappy goal to add the fifth.

Nottingham Forest face off against Bournemouth on Tuesday, a fight for second and automatic promotion.
