The race is on for the last two Champions League places, Europa League football is up for grabs and three clubs are clashing for 17th spot and safety.
The final day of the Premier League 2019/20 season is set to affect standings at both ends of the division with the race for Europa and the battle to avoid relegation yet to be decided.
Players and their coaching staff will have hoped that such a fate-defining showdown could have been avoided. But, the League’s tendency to drag down teams kicking has once again set up a series of clashes that are certain to live long in the memory.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City will hope to clinch the final two Champions League spots with one giant club braced for “heartbreaks” on an unimaginable scale.
Just below are Wolves and Tottenham who aim to finish in sixth and secure a Europa League position.
Down to the bottom are three clubs battling with every strength to preserve their top-flight status. Aston Villa may have pulled themselves out of the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Watford and Bournemouth are yet to experience deadline day delirium.
Will tears go down?
In the normal football times, television cameras enjoyed zooming in on sobbing fans after their club had been relegated. Now, with supporters unable to attend games because of COVID-19, zooming in on crying fans will not happen this season.
However, Watford, Bournemouth, and Aston Villa fans are preparing for a nerve-shredding day. Their clubs of choice look to avoid joining Norwich City in the relegation championship.
After a long season of hard work, three teams separated by three points and with almost identical goal differences are left to battle for one Premier League place.
With all games kicking off at 16:00 BST, expect tears to be flowing from around 17:50.
What to look out for
As the Premier League season comes to an end, will Liverpool finish the season with yet another record?
Klopp’s runaway champions are in the hunt for the biggest title-winning points margin. The record currently stands at 19 set by Manchester City in 2017/28 when they finished on 100 points and runners-up Manchester United got 81.
Meanwhile, Henry’s record of 20 Premier League assists in one season is under threat. Henry achieved the record in 2002/03 at Arsenal. But, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne needs just one more to go level with the Gunners legend.
Let’s wait and see.
