Premier League title and relegation battle comes down to final match

Manchester City will face Aston Villa for a do or die win to secure the Premier League Crown.

Eight of the ten ultimate encounters would have a lot resting on them as it appears currently.Β Although the focus will likely get on the quest for glory between Manchester City and Liverpool, thousands of euros will be in line elsewhere on the ladder. For Pep Guardiola’s Side, it’s simple math: conquer Aston Villa at The Etihad, and it won’t reflect what Liverpool finishes versus Wolves at Anfield.

Liverpool presently lags the leaders by a point and has a considerably poorer goal differential owning to their victory over Southampton. Simply put, the Merseysiders must prevail while praying City does not. Even a tie for Liverpool will not be sufficient if City lost, however a 6-0 City collapse along with a 5-5 Anfield tie would culminate in a playoff for the title.

Chelsea has been guaranteed in the final four following Arsenal’s surprise setback against Newcastle and their tie versus Leicester all but guaranteed the third position – they are three points and 18 goals above Tottenham. Spurs are still in the fourth spot after a strong ending to the campaign and Arsenal’s downfall. Antonio Conte’s side tops Arsenal by two points and has a goal differential of +24 to Arsenal’s +9.

Spurs possess a hold on the fourth spot and the Champions League if they tie at Norwich, who have officially been demoted. However, many Tottenham supporters are probably reliving the last night of the 2015-16 season, when they required a point at hopeless Newcastle to end second and, for the very first occasion in 20 years, end ahead of Arsenal. They were crushed 5-1.

Manchester United and West Ham United are set to feature in Europe, although it is unknown which group they will engage in. United’s sixth-place position and a spot in the last play-off phase to meet Arsenal or Spurs in the Europa League should be secured if they beat Crystal Palace at home. Which might send the Hammers in the seventh spot as well as in the Conference League. If United screw up to upset Palace, a triumph for West Ham at Brighton could be sufficient to keep them in sixth place, sidelining United to the third-tier competition,

Norwich and Watford commenced rehearsing for existence in the Championship a few weeks earlier, but the last spot in the bottom staircase is still up for grabs. Everton overcame Crystal Palace 3-2 on Thursday to prolong their Premier League stint to 69 seasons after a remarkable 3-2 turnaround triumph that triggered dramatic celebrations at Goodison Park.

Therefore their encounter in the Emirates is no longer under threat. This means it’ll be a last-day showdown between Leeds and Burnley, who pulled out of the relegation line with a point at Villa. Leeds, who play Brentford on Sunday, are conscious that they should better the Clarets’ outcome in their last home encounter against Newcastle since they are equal on 35 points but 20 goals adrift Jesse Marsch’s men. As a result, Burnley can merely mirror whatsoever Leeds produces to secure another Premier League campaign.
