LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Arsenal's 0-0 draw with Sunderland in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.

1. Sunderland secure their Premier League status

By this stage of the season, most Premier League matches are irrelevant because so many teams have nothing to play for. Yet this was a rare game where both had something at stake: Arsenal wanted to secure the final (guaranteed) Champions League place by finishing third, while Sunderland were fighting relegation.

WEST BROMWICH, England -- Three points on West Brom's 3-0 win vs. Chelsea in the Premier League.

1. Baggies show their style

If Liverpool chose R.E.M.'s "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" to prelude Steven Gerrard's send-off on Saturday, the Hawthorns' DJ selected the quartet's "Shiny Happy People" before their final home game of West Brom's season.

MADRID -- Three things from the Estadio Vicente Calderon, where Barcelona clinched the La Liga title thanks to a 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid on Sunday night.

1. First step of treble completed

Lionel Messi's goal midway through the second half has clinched the La Liga title for Barcelona, after a slow-burning afternoon of action saw Barcelona do enough to beat Atletico at the Calderon, meaning Real Madrid's 4-1 win at Espanyol counted for nothing in the race at the top.
