Premier League final day: Champions League and relegation battles set to dominate

Champions League qualification and the battle to avoid relegation are the major issues at stake as the Premier League season concludes on Sunday.

Coronavirus prompted fears the campaign might not be completed but after 92 games in 40 days the top flight is set for a dramatic finale.

Leicester City host Manchester United with both teams and Chelsea competing for the two remaining top-four spots.

Two of Aston Villa, Watford and Bournemouth will be relegated.

Europa League qualification is also up for grabs, with Wolves and Tottenham battling for sixth place, which guarantees a European place next season.

Jamie Vardy is favourite to win the Golden Boot, while the Golden Glove is also up for grabs.

Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne will be hoping to match – or break – an assists landmark only previously achieved by Thierry Henry, plus the Premier League will bid farewell to a legend as De Bruyne’s City team-mate David Silva plays his final match in the competition.

Heartbreak and tears – who will go down?

Remember in normal times when the television cameras loved zooming in on sobbing fans after their club had been relegated?

With supporters unable to attend games because of the coronavirus pandemic, that is not going to happen this season.

But fans of Bournemouth, Watford and Aston Villa are preparing for a nerve-shredding day as their clubs look to avoid joining Norwich in the Championship.

After a long slog of a season, three teams separated by three points and with almost identical goal differences, are left to battle for one Premier League place.

Villa, who start the day outside of the bottom three on goal difference, visit a West Ham side who are now safe, 18th-placed Watford go to FA Cup finalists Arsenal, while 19th-placed Bournemouth are at mid-table Everton.
