The final day of the premier league season is here and we have it all to do on three fronts. The title race isn’t done but it’s firmly in City’s hands, the top four race can still swing wildly but can Norwich beat Spurs? Down the ladder, Burnley only need to match Leeds’ result but is it impossible?
Burnley and Leeds United are the only ones left to know their fate in the relegation dogfight, both sides forced a point in their respective last games and that may prove vital but Burnley has all the advantage in terms of goals difference.
Both teams have 35 points, the Clarets have a massive twenty-goal grace that makes the battle theirs if they both end their final day games on same points, it is clear and direct for Leeds United, they must better whatever it is that Mike Jackson and his team do on final day.
What can go wrong for Burnley?
A lot can go wrong at this stage for the Clarets. They’re at home to a very inspired Newcastle side. Eddie Howe’s boys beat Arsenal cleanly at St. James’s Park on Monday night to end their home season on a high but what are the odds that they will take their feet off the gas at Turf Moor on Sunday?
Burnley know that a point might not be enough, but they can lose and still survive considering the fact that Leeds United have it all to do at Brentford, but it’s safer to do your bit and move on, such that you don’t care about anything happening at the Community Stadium.
Can Leeds United save their own season?
Leeds United must beat Brentford to stand any chance of surviving the drop. But then, football is crazy and a point might just be enough, considering the fact that Newcastle can help them beat Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday.
As a matter of tradition, all games go down the same time, but expect to see lots of fans in the crowd on their mobile devices, trying to find out what happens at other ends. Leeds labored to a point at home in their last game against Brighton, they should be able to go a step further at Brentford.
Watford and Norwich are already relegated, who joins them in the championship next season? Leeds United fired Marcelo Bielsa in the course of the relegation battle, quite expected considering how bad the results were, but despite the odds, not many expected Burnley to axe Sean Dyches.
The final day is here and we expect lots of swings, it’s harder for Leeds United because of the massive goals deficit but if they can pull off a win at Brentford, they just might survive with Newcastle poised to continue their solid form.
Verdict: Newcastle to beat Burnley
Verdict: Leeds to earn a point at least at Brentford.
