Manchester City showed the nerves of champions by overcoming Newcastle 2-0 on Sunday while Manchester United kept up their end of the bargain by beating Swansea by the same scoreline later that day.
Elsewhere, Arsenal drew 3-3 with Norwich on Saturday while Liverpool signed off on their home campaign with a 4-1 drubbing of Chelsea on Tuesday.
This week we have players from Norwich, Wigan, Sunderland, City, QPR, Fulham, United, Liverpool and Arsenal.
We've gone with a 4-4-2 formation.
GK: John Ruddy (Norwich)
Not sure if you'll agree with John Ruddy's inclusion in our Team of the Week this week. After all, this is a keeper who did concede three goals over the weekend as Norwich drew 3-3 with Arsenal. However, if you watched the game then you may think his inclusion is actually totally justifiable.
Ruddy made a string of unbelievable saves during the game to keep Arsenal in check and ensure that the game remained close - and he was rewarded for his efforts as team-mate Steve Morison popped up to grab a deserved equalizer for the Canaries with the full-time whistle approaching.
RB: Antolin Alcaraz (Wigan)
In terms of the magnitude of a goal scored; there can't be too many bigger this season than the one Antolin Alcaraz managed to bag on Monday against Blackburn. The defender, who started Monday's game against Rovers as a right-back, nodded home in the 86th minute to secure a 1-0 win for Wigan.
The three points confirmed Premier League safety for Wigan while at the same time it condemned Rovers to the npower Championship.
LB: Phil Bardsley (Sunderland)
Martin O'Neill has shaken up the Black Cats since his arrival and he has managed to get the best out of certain players by playing them out of position - and this was the case for Phil Bardsley against Fulham on Sunday.
Despite the 2-1 defeat, Bardsley was quite excellent against Fulham and got himself on the scores sheet as well. It was a lovely goal too. He smashed the shot past Mark Schwarzer in the Fulham goal after playing a neat one-two with a team-mate.
CB: Vincent Kompany (Manchester City)
Following Papiss Demba Cisse's incredible goals against Chelsea, a Newcastle supporting friend of mine has been telling anyone within earshot that the Toon striker is unstoppable. It just goes to show you how good Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has been this season because he kept the ‘unstoppable striker' fairly quiet for the most part of his side's 2-0 win over Newcastle.
CB: Anton Ferdinand (QPR)
QPR are fighting for their Premier League life at the moment and at this stage of the season they'll need their key players to stand up and be counted. And that's what Anton Ferdinand did for QPR on Sunday against Stoke as he stood out as a rock in what is a very leaky looking defence.
A clean sheet always gives you a chance at winning games, and in the 88th minute Ferdinand went up for a corner and flicked the ball on for Djibril Cisse to score the winner. QPR stay alive for now but play Manchester City in the last game of the season.
LM: Clint Dempsey (Fulham)
American Clint Dempsey started the game for Fulham against Sunderland on the left flank but he was everywhere for his team on the night.
Dempsey has reportedly been attracting the interest of Arsenal and Liverpool with his performances this season and it's not hard to see why as he notched up yet another strike against the Black Cats to reach 50 Premier League goals in his career. He's the first American to reach this milestone.
How good was Dempsey? Well, if you watched Manchester United's 2-0 win over Swansea on Sunday you'll know that Ashley Young was superb on the wing, but Dempsey was even better and he keeps the England international out of our Team of the Week for now.
RM: Antonio Valencia (Manchester United)
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's impressive trophy haul proves he gets things right more times than not. However, we still can't fathom why the Scot would choose to not start Antonio Valencia in last month's crushing Manchester derby defeat.
Restored to the starting line-up for Sunday's game with Swansea, Valencia dominated the wing and created several chances for his team-mates as United went on to win 2-0 to keep the title race alive heading into the final round. United had 28 shots - their second highest number in the league this season - against Swansea.
CM: Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool)
Liverpool ended a season of misery at Anfield with a morale boosting 4-1 win over Chelsea. Central to the win was youngster Jonjo Shelvey who played a pivotal role for the Reds in winning the ball back and launching counter attacks for team-mate Luis Suarez to take advantage of.
He also scored a peach of goal on the night. A half-volley into the open goal from way out which as my colleague commented "is harder than it looks!".
CM: Yaya Toure (Manchester City)
Manchester City nerves were at an all-time high with Sunday's game against Newcastle still deadlocked at 0-0 on the hour mark. City manager Roberto Mancini then threw on Nigel De Jong in the 61st minute to push Yaya Toure further up the pitch. Big players step up at big moments and Toure delivered with an accurately placed shot from long range to give his side the lead. He wrapped things up with a second goal - lofting the ball into the net from close range.
ST: Robin van Persie (Arsenal)
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie rescued the Gunners once again with two goals in the final 20 minutes to get a point from their 3-3 draw with Norwich. In truth, the Dutchman could have and probably should have had a hat-trick but it shouldn't take away from what he did do which was score two goals over the weekend.
Plus, his finish from a beautiful pass by Song (how many times has this happened this season!) was exquisite.
ST: Luis Suarez (Liverpool)
What's happening? This is now two weeks in a row where Luis Suarez gets into our Team of the Week. However, even Chelsea fans must admit the Uruguayan was in mesmerizing form during their 4-1 win over the Blues.
No goals to show for his work but he definitely ran rings around the Chelsea defence and it was his trickery which essentially opened the scoring for Liverpool after he forced Michael Essien to score an own goal inside 19 minutes.
Special Mention: Djibril Cisse (QPR)
We can't go away this week without mentioning the last gasp goal by QPR's temperamental striker Djibril Cisse. The Frenchman came on for Mark Hughes's side in the 50th minute against Stoke to provide a much needed spark in a toothless looking QPR attack.
His goal in the 88th minute sank Stoke and also set football fans up for a very interesting last weekend in the Premier League indeed as QPR can confirm safety if they can get a result against Manchester City which would in turn hand Manchester United the title should they get the necessary result against Sunderland. Game On!
