The final day of the Premier League is almost upon us, bringing with it a nail-biting climax at the top of the table. Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester City are all still with a chance of getting top four on the final day. On top of that, there are also Europa League and Europa Conference League places still to be decided.
Below, we’ve taken a look at the crucial games, where you can watch them and provide you with our predictions and best football betting odds for the Premier League final day.
As is traditional in the Premier League, and all other European and global professional sports leagues, all ten of the Premier League final day matches will kick off at the same time. You can keep up to date with the live Premier League scores this Sunday (May 23rd), with all games kicking off at 4pm GMT.
Will we see another moment as dramatic as the famous “Aguerrroooo” goal? There’s no league title to be won this coming Sunday, however with three teams battling it out for the two remaining top four sports there could certainly be a lot of final day drama.
Given the further easing of lockdown restrictions in England, you can now actually watch the final day Premier League matches down the pub. A number of lucky fans will also be able to watch their teams live in the stadium this Sunday as well!
For those of you staying at home though, you’ll be looking to find out where you can stream the final day of Premier League matches. If you want to have access to all ten matches on the last day of the Premier League this Sunday, then you’ll need to have a subscription to both Sky Sports and BT Sport. Sky Sports will be showing a total of seven final day Premier League games, with BT Sport showing the remaining three.
Sky Sports are showing the key games as they have Liverpool vs Crystal Palace, Leicester vs Tottenham and Aston Villa vs Chelsea. Additionally, Sky Sports will also show Champions Manchester City and three additional games.
If you’re not a subscriber of either Sky Sports or BT Sport, BBC will be streaming all of the highlights on Match of the Day on Sunday evening at 10.30pm GMT.
There are a number of UK betting sites that offer Premier League live streaming services to customers with an active bet on. Below, we’ve taken a look at the games that matter and what games have the best betting predictions and odds with the top UK bookmakers.
Manchester City have already been confirmed as Champions, meanwhile their neighbours Manchester United already have second place tied down. At the bottom of the table, Sheffield United, West Brom and Fulham have already been confirmed as the three relegated teams for the 2021 Premier League season.
There is a lot on the line however, with the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League places still to be decided.
There are three teams still fighting for the final two Champions League sports on the final day of the Premier League season 2021. Chelsea and Liverpool and now in the driving seat, with Leicester now on the outside looking in, having been in the top four for the entirety of the season.
For Chelsea, they know that an away win at Aston Villa will confirm their Champions League spot for next season. Liverpool and Leicester are level on points, however Liverpool have a superior goal difference of four. A win at Anfield vs Crystal Palace should all but seal their Champions League place next season, save for Leicester dishing out an unprecidented thrashing against Spurs.
Realistically, Leicester need to win against Spurs and hope that either Liverpool or Chelsea drop points in their games. It looks tough for Leicester – as well as going into the weekend outside of the top four, they are the only one of the three top four chasing sides who’s opponents still have something left to play for.
Whichever of the three above teams doesn’t make it into the top four, is guaranteed fifth place, and therefore the first Europa League spot. They will be joined by either Tottenham or West Ham, with the later being best poised to take the final spot. The Hammers sit above Spurs going into the final day and have a kinder fixture, as they play already safe Southampton, while Tottenham face top four chasing Leicester City.
In years gone by, this conversation would’ve ended with the above. This year, however, there’s something up for grabs for the team finishing in seventh place, who will go into the newly formed Europa Conference League. Spurs look poised to take this place if they miss out on the Europa League spot, as their closest rivals Everton place Champions Manchester City. If both teams drop any points at all, Arsenal could sneak in to grab that seventh spot – which would be the icing on the cake for Spurs’ poor season were it to happen.
All of the top UK bookies will be offering plenty of betting odds and markets on the Premier League final day this Sunday. As all ten games are kicking off at the exact same time, it’s the perfect day to stick on a good old fashioned acca with 888sport before you watch the results come in with a few pints.
Can Leicester avoid bottling it as they did towards the tial end of last season? Can Spurs salvage something from their season and at least be playing European football of some kind next season? Or will “it happen again” and we’ll see Arsenal leapfrog Tottenham at the last hurdle?
