Premier League final day permutations: The title battle
The major honours – and disappointments – are still to be decided. As we approach Sunday’s final round of Premier League fixtures, there is still much up for grabs.
City host Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa on the final day. The legendary Liverpool midfielder would love to pick up three points to end his side’s season – and potentially do the Reds a favour in the process.
On the other hand, Klopp’s side host Wolves at Anfield on Sunday. Victory for Liverpool, and a draw or loss for City, would hand the title to the Reds.
However, if Guardiola’s side can match or better Liverpool’s result, the Premier League title will remain at the Etihad Stadium for the second consecutive year.
North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are vying for the final Champions League place.
Two points separate the sides, meaning that Arsenal have to win at home to Everton to have any chance of finishing in the top four.
But even if Tottenham draw against Norwich, their far superior goal difference makes it incredibly unlikely that the Gunners would leapfrog them.
If the Hammers can win against Brighton on the final day- and the Reds fail to win- they will earn themselves a spot in next season’s Europa League. However, United only need to match West Ham’s result to qualify.
Regardless, both teams will be competing in Europe next term. The club that finishes in seventh position will claim a spot in the Europa Conference League.
Everton sealed their Premier League survival after beating Crystal Palace 3-2 at Goodison Park on Thursday. After being 2-0 down at half-time, they embarked on a three-goal comeback.
The battle to avoid relegation is now between Burnley and Leeds. On Thursday, the Clarets drew 1-1 with Aston Villa, meaning they are above their rivals on goal difference. With a far worse goal difference, Leeds will have to better Burnley’s result to stay in the Premier League for next season.
