Nottingham Forest put on a sublimely last day performance to maintain first spot. They are a point above Sunderland with the Roker Park team having to travel to Elland Road and beat FA Cup Winners Leeds to snatch the title, which was all but won by them half way through the season.
Forest easily brushed away a weak Coventry, a Coventry who have survived for another season in the First Division. Forest had not lost for their last 19 games of the season, 18 of those wins.
Stoke on the other hand have been relegated along with WBA.
Tottenham finished top of the rest in third with a super win over rival Arsenal, while the young Burnley side finished a very credible fourth.
Tottenham Hotspur 3
Tottenham needed a mere 10 minute spurt to beat Arsenal in this surprising end of season North London derby. In those 10 minutes of the second half, after a desperately edgy first half, Spurs scored three times and finished the game off.
