After an unprecedented pause in proceedings, the Premier League finally grinds to a halt
The Premier League season reaches an exciting climax on the final day of the season as teams jostle to fill the remaining European and relegation spots. Indeed, after the red party at Anfield on the night Liverpool finally lifted their first Premier League title in 30 years, the most important races at either end of the table present a tasty Super Sunday ahead.
Chelsea and Manchester United require a point each from their final game to secure top four, however the Blues losing to Wolves at home would leave Lampard’s men hoping United lose their game away to Leicester City who are only a point behind.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have dropped off in recent games, having been in immense scoring form since the restart have won only two of their last five matches. With Jamie Vardy (23 goals) looking to consolidate his first Golden Boot award at 33 years, can depleted Leicester find enough to upset United in a shootout for a top-four place at the King Power Stadium?
Kevin de Bruyne’s 19 assists is one short of Thierry Henry’s record of 20 from the 2002-03 season. The Belgian is likely to be crowned PFA Player of The Year and would be looking to seal a wonderful personal campaign against relegated Norwich.
Lower down the table is the equally exciting battle to avoid the relegation abyss. Aston Villa, after seven points from the last available nine, are looking for the points at London Stadium that would consign Watford and Bournemouth to joining Norwich in the Championship.
Would there be a final twist somewhere in-between? It’s all set up and the Premier League never fails to excite.
