See all the action from the weekend's Premier League action.


West Ham eased to a 3-0 victory over Cardiff on Monday to seal a 5-0 aggregate win and book their place in the Championship playoff final.

Already leading 2-0 from the first leg in Wales, West Ham extended their advantage when Kevin Nolan headed home from close range on the quarter-hour.

Ricardo Vaz Te made absolutely sure there would be no slip-ups when he scored West Ham's second of the afternoon before halftime.

And Nicky Maynard rounded off the scoring in fine style with a thumping finish in the final minute.

West Ham will face Blackpool or Birmingham in the Wembley final on Saturday May 19.
