How can Manchester City win the title?

If Man City beat Brighton by any scoreline, they will retain the Premier League trophy as they are already one point ahead of Liverpool.

A draw for City will be fine as long as Liverpool lose or draw their match against Wolves, while if City are beaten by Brighton they must rely on Wolves to defeat Liverpool to become champions.

How can Liverpool win the title?

Any defeat for Liverpool means they cannot claim the Premier League crown.

A draw against Wolves would win Liverpool the title if Man City lose to Brighton by at least four clear goals.

Winning against Brighton would move Liverpool onto 97 points. They will win the title if City draw or lose their match on the south coast.

Who will claim the final Champions League qualification place?

Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all guaranteed to finish in the top four, with Arsenal and Tottenham battling it out to claim the final spot.

Tottenham will finish in the top four if they win or draw against Everton regardless of Arsenal’s result.

The Gunners can only overtake Spurs if they beat Burnley and Tottenham lose to Everton, and there is an eight-goal swing. If this happens, Arsenal will finish ahead of Spurs on goal difference.

Who will qualify for the Europa League

Whichever one of Arsenal or Spurs fails to finish in the top four will instead qualify for the Europa League.

They will be joined by Manchester United, who are guaranteed to finish inside the top six.

Wolves have secured seventh place in the Premier League so could also qualify for the Europa League, though only if Manchester City beat Watford in next week’s FA Cup final.

If the Hornets claim silverware at the Wembley showpiece, however, they will qualify for Europe instead of Wolves.

Who has been relegated?

The relegation fight has already been determined heading into the final day, with Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff failing to secure top flight survival. The latter two drop back down to the Championship after just a single season in the Premier League.
