The 2019/20 Premier League season reaches its climax on Sunday and the fight for the remaining two top 4 places will rage on and be settled on the last matchday of the season.
Manchester United finally moved into the top 4 with one game to go due to superior goal difference. Chelsea moved down to 4th while Leicester City remained in fifth.
The Red Devils may not have done themselves any good by drawing 1 all against West Ham at Old Trafford but we’ll know better after the blast of the final whistle at the King Power Stadium against a Leicester side who’ll seal a place regardless of other results if they win.
Chelsea, on the other hand, played out an entertaining 5:3 result against Premier League champions Liverpool, although they were on the losing side. They face Wolves at Stamford Bridge in the final game of the season on Sunday.
One positive for Leicester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea is that they all have their top 4 destinies in their hands and must work it out on the pitch.
Chelsea need just 1 point to make it to next season’s UEFA Champions League regardless of other results but they face a Wolves side who need all 3 points to guarantee a place in the Europa as Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur are hot on their heels.
Therefore, the Blues have a game on their hands but have the quality to see it through coupled with their home advantage.
A loss for Chelsea will see them relying on a Manchester United win against Leicester at the King Power. With Man United’s recent form, the Blues must do all they can to stop Nuno Espirito and his men from springing any final-day surprises at Stamford Bridge.
Man United needs a draw against Leicester but a win will see them finish third. However, if they lose to the Foxes, they’ll have to rely on Wolves beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and this is a very big ask.
Leicester need a win at home to guarantee their place in next season’s UCL. A loss for them means they are out, irrespective of Chelsea’s result while a draw for them means that Chelsea must lose against Wolves for them to go through.
All games will be played simultaneously, so teams will have to focus on their games on the pitch. Regardless, their ears will be on the news of events at stadiums that concern them.
Chelsea should do enough to qualify as long as they don’t underrate Wolves while Manchester United will face a fierce fight from Brendan Rodgers’ men.
