West Ham are in the hunt for a Europa League spot, but nothing doing so far against Southampton. Leeds have had a Harrison goal ruled out of offside against West Brom. Don’t worry, the goals are coming…
Crystal Palace force Liverpool on the backfoot with Alisson making two vital stops. This will be eventful as both sides are going for it.
Away we go in 10 games. We are in for a finale to remember!
With 10 games on the go, expect a flurry of goal alerts rather than my eloquent chit-chat, for which I can only apologies – or say you are welcome… 20 mins to go.
Obviously the other big news is that fans are back to roar on their sides (well, the home ones at least). Aguero and City will get an ovation, and depending on results, Anfield and Leicester may have a party. Aston Villa could be the Champions League King (Power? sorry!) makers as they take on Chelsea in the top-four battle.
Manchester City have been absolutely mobbed by jubilant fans as they come off the bus for their final game of the season at the Etihad. Pep has quite a smirk on his face – and well deserved.
“It has been some season for City as they got back to the top of the pile. It has been tough for Liverpool with their injuries, but we are sure to have a thrilling 90 minutes, with the Reds, Leicester and Chelsea all pushing for the top four,” says Craig Leader, manager of Crown & Lion, Byblos Barsha Heights. He’s not wrong.
I would be here all day with 20 team sheets, but the big news so far is Sergio Aguero starts on the bench for City as they face Everton for the Argentine’s final game at the Etihad. Kyle Walker, Fernandinho, Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus all start. Hopefully no injuries ahead of the Champions League final next week.
So let’s take a look at the rundown. All games kick-off simultaneously across England, with a full card of 10 clashes kicking off at 7pm.
Arsenal v Brighton
Aston Villa v Chelsea
Fulham v Newcastle United
Leeds United v West Bromwich Albion
Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur
Liverpool v Crystal Palace
Manchester City v Everton
Sheffield v Burnley
West Ham v Southampton
Wolves v Manchester United
We also have the added bonus of the new Europa League Conference race — while not as attractive as its big brothers, it is still a European ticket.
We know that Manchester City are champs — they will be lifting the trophy a little later. We know Sheffield, Fulham and West Brom are down, but there are teams still fighting for a massive amount today as Chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool push for the coveted top-four slots and Champions League football next season.
Hello and welcome to the big finale to another -unlike any other — English Premier League season.
