What's At Stake In The Final Week Of The Premier League Season?

The Premier League title race, the race for European spots, and the relegation battle are all coming down to the wire. There are only 13 games left, including three on Thursday before the final day on Sunday.

Arsenal lost 2-0 to Newcastle in the first twist of the week, giving Tottenham the lead in the Champions League race. On Tuesday, Southampton led Liverpool, a result that would have given Manchester City the title, but Jurgen Klopp’s side came back to win 2-1.

The battle for the Premier League title is between Manchester City  P:37, GD:72, Pts:90 and Liverpool P:37, GD:66, Pts:89.

Sunday: Liverpool v Wolves, Man City v Aston Villa (both 16:00).

Going into the final day, the situation at the top is clear. Manchester City will be crowned champions for the fourth time in five seasons if they defeat Aston Villa.

Liverpool must win to have a real chance of passing Man City, but if they beat Wolves and City drops points, Liverpool will take the title.

“Against this Liverpool side, you cannot win the league with four games to go,” Man City boss Pep Guardiola said. “You have to fight until the end. The big privilege is that it is at home and it is in our hands.

“We won’t look at anyone else – we’ll just try and win our game. I’m pretty sure the Etihad Stadium will be full and they’ll be supporting us.”

After Liverpool beat Southampton, Klopp said, “Of course it is unlikely because City play at home against Aston Villa, who play only on Thursday. That game will be tough against Burnley because they fight for survival.

“But it is football. I think the time when City became champion [in 2019] it was because of 11 millimetres. If someone wants us to be champion then we have to win first and Aston Villa need to get a point at City. It is possible, not likely but possible. That is enough.”

Who will be in Europe? Chelsea P:36, GD:42, Pts:70, Tottenham P:37, GD:24, Pts:68, Arsenal P:37, GD:9, Pts:66, Manchester United P:37, GD:1, Pts:58, and West Ham P:37, GD:11, Pts:56.

Sunday: Arsenal v Everton, Norwich v Tottenham (both 16:00)

Tottenham will qualify for the Champions League if they do not lose to relegated Norwich on the final day (presuming Arsenal do not win 15-0).

Arsenal must beat Everton and hope Tottenham loses.

The Gunners were in the lead a week ago, but they lost 3-0 to Spurs and then 2-0 at Newcastle to give Spurs the advantage.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka said, “If Tottenham lose and we win, you never know in football. We have to hope. Before the [Newcastle] game everything was in our hands. It’s a totally different game now. If you have to hope in football and in life it’s different.”
