In recent Premier League campaigns, we've been treated to some outstanding end-of-season drama.
Sergio Aguero's 94th minute winner against QPR to seal the 2011-12 title for Manchester City was the most incredible clincher in the Premier League era, while other run-ins have also been memorable: Chelsea sealed the title in 2009-10 with an 8-0 victory on the final day, and Manchester United's 2013 triumph was clinched with a Robin van Persie strike that was voted goal of the season.
