Chelsea can claim the Premiership title on Monday after beating Bolton 2-0.
The Premiership crown looks destined to remain at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea beat Bolton 2-0 at The Reebok, while Tottenham and Arsenal both won as the race for fourth place reaches its climax.
In the day's early kick-off, goals from John Terry and Frank Lampard either side of half time saw Jose Mourinho's side claim maximum spoils from a comfortable trip north.
Chelsea can claim the title on Monday if Manchester United fail to beat Tottenham and they pick up a win from their game with Everton.
Robbie Keane's dream season continued at Goodison Park as his 33rd minute penalty was enough to secure Spurs a crucial three points against Everton.
Arsenal were made to work hard for a positive result over West Brom at Highbury, eventually claiming a 3-1 victory mainly thanks to the introduction of Dennis Bergkamp from the bench.
Arsene Wenger's side took the lead in the 44th minute when Alexander Hleb registered with a well taken effort but in the second period, a calm Nigel Quashie finish gave West Brom hope in the 72nd minute.
Bergkamp was summoned and set up Robert Pires to restore Arsenal's lead just four minutes later, before adding a sublime third in the final stages.
Portsmouth have moved above Birmingham and are now out of the drop zone after a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough at Fratton Park, as Gary O'Neil's 54th minute winner proved enough for Harry Redknapp's side.
A cleverly taken Luis Boa Morte double gave Fulham the points against capital rivals Charlton at Craven Cottage.
The Portuguese flyer gave his side the lead on the quarter of an hour mark with a deceptive free kick before Jason Euell scrambled a leveller in the 26th minute.
Parity would prove short-lived as Boa Morte grabbed his second following a fine individual run, after half an hour of what was a lively contest.
An Alan Shearer double, the first from the penalty spot, helped Newcastle to a 3-1 win over Wigan.
Newcastle had gone behind to an early Jimmy Bullard free kick but a goal apiece from Shearer and Titus Bramble gave Newcastle a half-time lead, wrapped up by the former in the 66th minute.
Shaun Newton's assured first half strike saw Uefa Cup chasing West Ham claim a win over Manchester City.
