Sheffield united back in premiership

BY JOHN HUGHES

LONDON - Sunderland have been relegated from the top flight, despite producing their best result of a dismal season. Goalkeeper Kelvin Davis was inspired in a shock 0-0 draw at Manchester United, watched by a bemused biggest-ever Premiership crowd of 72,519.
United's st


umble left the way clear for Chelsea to retain the title. They won on the same day 2-0 at Bolton with goals by England stars John Terry and Frank Lampard.
Sheffield United will be back in the Premiership next season after a 12-year absence. They followed Reading in clinching the second automatic promotion place.
Veteran Dennis Bergkamp, 37 in June and dubbed the “Dutch Master,” set up Arsenal’s second goal and bent in the third himself in a 3-1 home win over relegation-haunted West Bromwich. The match was designated “Dennis Bergkamp Day” for the forward who leaves Arsenal at the end of this season after 11 years. But Tottenham stayed ahead of Arsenal in the battle for a Champions League berth by winning 1-0 at Everton with a Robbie Keane penalty.
Accrington Stanley are still celebrating promotion back to the Football League after a 44-year wait. The homespun Lancashire club’s revival after resigning from the League mid-season and then folding after going bust is being described as “bringing a smile to the face of English football.”
