The final day of the Premier League season is finally upon us – and fans could be in for one of the most dramatic top flight finishes ever. Manchester City are one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table and will secure their fourth title in five years if they beat Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon. But if the Citizens slip-up, the Reds will be crowned champions if they get the better of Wolves at Anfield.
Meanwhile, north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal will be battling to secure fourth spot. Antonio Conte’s men leapfrogged the Gunners last weekend as they beat Burnley, before Arsenal lost to Newcastle on Monday night. And Spurs go into the final day of the season two points ahead of Mikel Arteta’s team as they head to Norwich, while Arsenal host Everton.
There is still plenty to play for at the opposite end of the table as well as Burnley and Leeds will be doing all they can to avoid relegation to the Championship. The Clarets currently hold the advantage as they are above Leeds on goal different. So if the Yorkshiremen can’t better Burnley’s result, they will be condemned to England’s second tier.
The individual honours will also be decided this afternoon. Mohamed Salah currently leads the race to win the Golden Boot after bagging 22 goals this season, while Son Heung-min is hot on his heels after finding the back of the net 21 times.
And Manchester City and Liverpool goalkeepers Ederson and Alisson have both kept 20 clean sheets this term so will vying for the Golden Glove.
The final day of the season often throws up plenty of goals. So strap yourself in for the rollercoaster of emotions that could be set to play out across the country this afternoon.
