What To Expect On The Final Day Of Premier League
Premier League

It has been an exciting season as the Premier League reached its final day after a breathless 37 game weeks, we still do not have a champion.

Manchester City winner against Leicester City on Monday puts the Citizen in better position win the title back-to-back but Liverpool’s challenge isn’t over yet with just a point separating the two sides.

The intrigue goes beyond the title contenders as Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United locked it for the Champions League spot.

The title race

If Man City beat Brighton at the Amex they will be crowned champions on 98 points.

However, Liverpool must beat Wolves at home and pray that Chris Hughton’s side can become the first side to take points off City since Newcastle way back in January.

There are a couple of extraordinary results that could complicate matters.

City has a +4 goal difference advantage on Liverpool, meaning a 4-0 loss to Brighton and a 4-4 draw between Liverpool and Wolves at Anfield would still see Pep Guardiola’s side crowned champions.

Top four battle

Chelsea guaranteed themselves the top four finish after the victory over Watford last weekend and play their last game away to Leicester on the final day and if they can match Tottenham’s result that afternoon, they will finish third.

Tottenham needs a point against Everton in north London to make absolutely certain of their fourth-place finish – but Arsenal’s hopes of changing that are very slim indeed.

Even if Tottenham lose, Arsenal will need to beat Burnley at Turf Moor and secure an eight-goal swing to dislodge their neighbours on goal difference.

Europa League places

If Arsenal drop points against Burnley, Manchester United can leapfrog them into fifth place with a win over Cardiff and leave the Gunners finishing sixth for a second consecutive season.

United’s own Champions League hopes were brought to an end after a dismal draw at Huddersfield last week.

Watford can secure themselves a Europa League place if they beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

In such a scenario, whoever finishes sixth would have to begin their Europa League campaign in the second qualifying round during a time in the summer when many other teams are still away on pre-season.
