Layouts for the last round of the Premier League

There is a notch at the bottom of the table – one departing has not yet been determined!

The Premier League is one of the few tournaments where the championship intrigue still lives. However, there are also other questions. We study the layouts before the final round of the championship of England.

Who will be the champion

Two clubs claim the title – Manchester City and Liverpool. Josep Guardiola’s team is one point ahead of the opposition and all they need to do to win the league title is beat the unmotivated Aston Villa at home. The club from Birmingham is now coached by the legendary former Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard, but this fact is unlikely to somehow confuse the leader of the Premier League. In case of equal points, the fate of the title will be determined by the goal difference, which is much better for City (+72 vs. +66). Liverpool in the final round plays at home with Wolverhampton, who will not reach the European Cup zone in any way.

It is important to note that Villa have not taken points away from Man City since 2007 (when Birmingham won 2-0). So Liverpool need to count on a real miracle. There is a fantastic alignment in which the teams of Klopp and Guardiola will have to play the “golden” match. We wrote about it a few days ago.

Who will qualify for the Champions League

It is already known for sure that Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will represent England in the Champions League next season. In fourth place will be either Tottenham or Arsenal. A little over a week ago, Mikel Arteta’s team was four points ahead of their principal rival, and now they are two points behind him. In the final round, Tottenham plays away with Norwich (the last place in the Premier League) – he will definitely start the next season in the Championship. Arsenal in the 38th round will host Everton in London, which recently retained a place in the elite division.

The team of Antonio Conte is enough not to lose to the worst club in the championship, and then he will take fourth place. Tottenham have a huge advantage over Arsenal in total goal difference (+24 vs +9). It is impossible to imagine Arteta’s side beating Everton 15-0. Arsenal need to score three points and count on the defeat of Tottenham.

Who will take sixth place

Manchester United are currently sixth in the table, two points ahead of West Ham. The Mancunians will play the final match of the season away from Crystal Palace, while David Moyes’ team will go to Brighton.

If Manchester United and BX finish the season with the same number of points, then the advantage on goal difference will be on the side of the capital club. The sixth team of the championship will play in the Europa League, and the seventh in the Conference League. It is already known that Erik ten Hag, who will head Manchester United in the summer, will attend the match against Crystal Palace. Perhaps this fact will be an additional motivation for the club, and he will keep the sixth line in the table. Otherwise, Cristiano Ronaldo will have to play in the Conference League.

Who will be relegated to the Championship

Norwich and Watford are definitely leaving the elite division. Everton, who scored a comeback in the game with Crystal Palace (3:2), avoided hassle in the final round. The third team to be relegated to the Championship will be Burnley or Leeds. Now they have 35 points each, but Burnley have a much better goal difference. Thus, Leeds will retain a place in the Premier League if they play better than the competitor in the last round. Burnley are waiting for a home meeting with Newcastle, and Leeds will go to visit Brentford. These matches, like all others on the tour, will take place on May 22. Burnley have not played in the Championship since the 2015/2016 season and Leeds last visited in 2020.
