Danny Simpson and Jeffrey Schlupp let us in on the sheer, unadulterated joy of staying in the Premier League via

the medium of Instagram.

The Newcastle pressure cooker

Garth Crooks

BBC Sport on Final Score

"Somehow my instincts say Hull against Man United is better than Newcastle against West Ham. This group of Newcastle players have not coped very well in that pressure cooker atmosphere at St James' Park."

Leicester are staying up

Stuart Pearce

Former England left-back on Final Score

"Their spirit was good and I don't remember too many games where they were annihilated even though they lost. They were very unfortunate against Chelsea, they played extremely well and over the last 12 games they were in championship form. I'd written them off, so credit to Nigel and the players."

'This run has been extraordinary'

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson, speaking to BBC Sport: "It is a little more satisfying to get over the line with your own result. It's been a good old run for us.

"I think the key thing for us even in our darkest moments, and there have been a few, the players have continued to support each each other and believe in their own ability. That's difficult when people are questioning your integrity.

"We've developed as the season has gone on. This run has been extraordinary, but we've needed to do it, because a number of sides have picked up form. We've stuck at our job."

He added on Sky Sports: "There are always going to be doubts about managers. I may have intensified one or two storms, but I work the way I work, and you can either like me or lump me."

'We are nearly there'

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a very exciting match for both teams, with a lot of nerves, but both teams work so hard. We had more opportunities, but I think 0-0 is a good result.

"Leicester are a very difficult team to beat. They've lost one game in eight, we'd lost one in six. We were organised, but we needed more, and we got it when Adam Johnson came on. We hope to use him in our last two games and get more chances.

"We play Arsenal next, and they are an excellent team. We have to make it as difficult as possible for Arsenal and score a goal. Swansea did it. If you are organised, you will always get chances.

"The players gave everything. I cannot ask for more from them. I can live with that, but they are disappointed. We are almost there, but not quite."

Newcastle doomed?

Garth Crooks

BBC Sport on Final Score

"I don't think Newcastle will survive, St James' will be a cauldron next week, and they face a manager who can't wait to send them down."

Manager reaction

QPR 2-1 Newcastle

QPR caretaker coach Chris Ramsey: "The fans have been absolutely fantastic all season. It's important we got those two goals. It's gets us back to thinking good things in the summer.

"There was plenty of effort in the first half, but lacked that bit of quality. Leroy Fer has got that in his locker - he brings a little bit of extra flavour to our team.

"I think fans can see we will try our best and that we will try to put the club on an even footing. It's not up to me who stays and who doesn't stay."

Manager reaction

QPR 2-1 Newcastle

Newcastle coach John Carver: "It was a mad 10 minutes in the second half and that was hugely disappointing. I thought in first half we were in control. They weren't a threat, we were organised.

"We knew the result we tried to get today and had to get. We had to go for the win.

"Having lost, this is the best scenario with Hull losing. There's one game left and it's a do or die situation.

"We have to manage the pressure this week, focus and keep out of media spotlight. We've talked about some games in the last three, four weeks being the biggest and next week against West Ham is one of them."

Vince in London: Sorry but if Newcastle can't even get a point against QPR they should give up.

Advik, London: Wonder how the Newcastle fans who made sackpardew.com are feeling.

West Ham 1-2 Everton

Sam Allardyce must be sick of the sight of Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has scored against West Ham every time he has played against them for Everton. Allardyce called him a "jinx" in the post-match press conference.

For the Hammers they are in pole position to qualify for the Europa League via fair play after Everton's four yellows.

For Everton they are now in the top half of the table, swapping places with the Hammers but their poor discipline today may cost them a place in Europe.

Gerrard says farewell to Anfield

Chris Sutton

Former Norwich, Blackburn and Celtic striker on Final Score

"What a servant, what a player, but Liverpool are making a mistake in letting him go in my opinion."

If you want to follow Steven Gerrard's Anfield farewell you can do so via our

separate live text commentary. You've just missed the emotional pre-game stuff, so you'll have to make do with an actual game of football from now on.

'Spurs want to be in Europe'

Tottenham 2-0 Hull City

Mauricio Pochettino tells BBC Sport: "The first half was not easy because Hull are playing to survive. We're still in the fight to finish fifth. The fans needed that - it was a tough season for them too. I want to play in Europe next season - we need to win our one more game to be sure of getting in the Europa League and that is very important."

Tottenham 2-0 Hull City

Garth Crooks

BBC Sport on Final Score

On the Jake Livermore situation for Hull: "I thought Steve Bruce handled his post-match interview very well, but he must be extremely frustrated, there must be anger and he will feel let down.

"Players are paid extremely well-paid to keep themselves fit, so if you are going to fall from grace can you do it in the close season please?"

Hull close to the brink

Stuart Pearce

Former England left-back on Final Score

"The one thing you get from Brucey is honesty, he is genuine, and he knows he has a genuine bunch around him like Myler and Quinn, who got him up from the Championship. They'll concentrate and treat this as a one-off game."

Tottenham 2-0 Hull City

Hull midfielder Jake Livermore was this week suspended by the Football Association and his club following a positive test for cocaine. Manager Steve Bruce had this to say after being asked about the matter: "It has been unquestionably my hardest 24/36 hours in management. It is hard to put your head round things.

"As always you have to handle it and not let it affect people. We are hugely disappointed but we have to move on, dust ourselves down and prepare as well as we can in a tough week."

Leicester stay up...

Tottenham 2-0 Hull City

Hull manager Steve Bruce: "You can't come to Tottenham and create five or six good chances and not take one. We've switched off at the back and they have taken their chances.

"In terms of the way we played, no disrespect to Burnley but if we played like that against them our chances wouldn't be in the hands of others. We have to believe we can beat Manchester United next week.

"Six or seven of the players got me into the league a few years ago. They have big hearts. We've missed some of those big players during this season. We have a chance. Is there one final twist? Can we upset the apple cart. Lets hope we can do it."

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

There is a lot of loving for Nigel Pearson and his teams' super form as the season ends but what about Dick Advocaat.

Not only does he wear a designer coat and scarf on the touchline, he hasn't half pulled off a blinder since taking charge.

In the 7 games under Advocaat, Sunderland have picked up 11 points, as many as in the 14 previous Premier League games combined.

The Black Cats have two games - Arsenal and Chelsea - and need one point to stay up.

Gerrard's Anfield farewell

If it is reaction and chat about today's 15:00 BST Premier League kick-offs then stick right where you are as the players slowly circle the pitch waving to a small collection of fans who haven't headed off to beat the traffic. However, if you want to join in the Steven Gerrard shenanigans, we have a

separate live text on his Anfield farewell, along with an undercard featuring Liverpool v Crystal Palace.

QPR 2-1 Newcastle

Not too sure what to make of this Queens Park Rangers lap of honour at the end of their home season. Bizarrely, for a club heading down into the Championship, there are a lot of smiles on show in the stands. Charlie Austin is kicking a ball around with his son, manager Chris Ramsey is posing for pictures. It all feels a little bit odd.

'We've proved a lot of people wrong'

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

Leicester captain Wes Morgan: "We knew we had to keep calm. A point is a great result. To get from where we were 18 months ago to where we are know, I'm delighted. A lot of people wrote us off a couple of months ago, and I feel we've proved a lot of people wrong."

Phil, Fareham: In fairness to QPR, they clearly read my text at half time (16.04). I stand corrected.

Jon: A relieved Villa fan here, makes the result earlier slightly less worse but again, relying on teams below us for favours.

Red hair day

Tottenham 2-0 Hull City

Tottenham's Danny Rose has been explaining his goal, and his red hair colour, to Sky Sports after his side's 2-0 win over Hull.

"The hair is a mid-life crisis I think.

"Ryan Mason did brilliantly to find me, I've not caught it as sweet as I like but it went in.

"We needed that win massively. We needed that three points to help get Euopean football. We want a positive end to the season."

Aston Villa stay up

Aston Villa stay up

What about that for a day Aston Villa fans? Humiliated, hammered and hung out to dry in a 6-1 defeat at Southampton, yet confirmed as safe a few hours later. It's never dull this game is it? FA Cup final to come of course.

Tottenham 2-0 Hull City

John Hartson

BBC Radio 5 live at White Hart Lane

"It'll go down as a good win for Spurs, Hull were very spirited, they showed lots of endeavour, but they were brought down by two pieces of quality from Spurs. A great win for Spurs, a little bit deflating for Hull."

As it stands...

Shohidur Rahman: Sherwood did the job. Villa are safe. They have to now invest in the summer to avoid another relegation fight.

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

Nigel Pearson is typically Jekyll and Hyde at Sunderland. He's on the pitch with his players, simply clapping fans one moment like a man in control before flipping into a raging bull as he embraces his players seconds later. He just high-fived a player so hard it could be heard in India.

FULL-TIME

QPR 2-1 Newcastle

Some fans rush onto the pitch at Loftus Road. They have nothing to celebrate as they are already down but at least their last home game of the season ends in a win. Questions aplenty for Newcastle United.

If they draw next week and Hull City win, it won't be good enough.

CLOSE!

QPR 2-1 Newcastle

Newcastle free-kick, a good area, 25 yards out and central. Papiss Cisse hits it, rubbish. Catching practice for Alex McCarthy.

FULL-TIME

West Ham 1-2 Everton

Romelu Lukaku's late diving header gives Everton just their fifth away win of the season. It ends a run of consecutive defeats, in which they conceded five goals. West Ham say farewell to Upton Park this season with a defeat.

FULL-TIME

Sunderland 0-0 Leicester City

Leicester City's players are embracing, I'm talking big group hugs. As long as Hull don't turn their game with Tottenham around the Foxes are safe. And they are, it's all over at White Hart Lane. Leicester will be in the Premier League next season.
