Liverpool's trophy and Championship madness – Football Weekly Extra

We start by looking back at the key moments in the midweek Premier League fixtures, as Liverpool’s long wait to get their hands on the trophy came to an end in a extravagant, but fan-less display inside Anfield. We also look at Manchester United’s draw against West Ham and a big win for Aston Villa that puts survival into their own hands.

Then we move on to the finale of the craziest division in the world, the Championship, which saw West Bromwich Albion limp over the line after Brentford were beaten by Barnsley. We also discuss Swansea’s dramatic gatecrash into the play-offs at the expense of Nottingham Forest with a delirious Elis.

Finally, we take a look at the Championship relegation contest, AFC Bury’s reinstatement into the football pyramid and get Marcus’s view on an uncertain future for many footballers once this season ends.
