A BRILLIANT MATT Doherty cross for the winning goal helped Wolves beat Fulham 1-0 in the Premier League today.

The Molineux outfit are almost certain to finish seventh, after Leander Dendoncker headed home the Irish international’s cross in the 75th minute.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are four points clear of eighth placed Everton, who only have one game left, and six ahead of ninth placed Leicester, who have two matches remaining.

If Manchester City win the FA Cup final against Watford later on May 18, the team which finishes seventh will go into the Europa League qualifying rounds next season.

Meanwhile, Marko Arnautovic ended his 11-game goal drought with a brace in West Ham’s 3-0 win against Southampton at the London Stadium.

Arnautovic hadn’t scored for Manuel Pellegrini’s men since 5 January, but the Austria forward fired mid-table West Ham ahead in the 16th minute with a clinical finish from Mark Noble’s pass.

Arnautovic struck again in the 69th minute when he headed home after Arthur Masuaka’s cross was palmed into the air by Southampton keeper Fraser Forster.

Hammers defender Ryan Fredericks wrapped up the points in the 72nd minute with his first Premier League goal.
