Will it be Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola who wins the title on Sunday?

There’s never been a campaign where it’s all still to play for on the final day and this Sunday promises to be the fitting conclusion to a superb season.

The final ten matches will all start at 4 p.m., but who is involved in the respective battles?

talkSPORT.com has a preview of what could happen on the final day…

The Premier League title, final Champions League spot, Europa League spot and relegation battle will be decided on the final day

How the Premier League table looks before the final day

Title race

The Premier League title race between Manchester City and Liverpool will be decided on the final day following the Reds’ 2-1 win over Southampton on Tuesday night.

It will be the ninth time the Premier League champions have been crowned on the final day of the campaign.

Both teams, led by Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, have pushed each other throughout the campaign and we are set for a thrilling final.

Defending champions City are a point ahead of the Reds – if they beat Aston Villa they will claim their fourth title in the last five years.

But if they draw and the Reds win, Liverpool will be crowned champions for the second time in three campaigns.

Liverpool must win to have any chance of winning the Citizens title, while a draw at home to Wolves and a win for Villa would give Guardiola’s side the trophy on goal difference.

Arsenal appear to have given Tottenham the lead

On Sunday, Tottenham and Arsenal are set to battle it out for the final Champions League spot.

Spurs are currently two points clear of the Gunners and face relegated Norwich at Carrow Road.

It’s pretty straightforward for Spurs – if they win, they’ll claim fourth place.

Even a draw, short of a 16-goal swing, would be enough for Antonio Conte’s side.

Meanwhile, after Arsenal’s back-to-back defeats to Spurs and Newcastle, their fate is no longer in their hands.

All they can do is beat Everton and hope Norwich only win their sixth league game this year.

It seems highly unlikely, but pressure is a fun thing, and all of those expectations could weigh on Spurs players.

West Ham could still seal sixth place

Manchester United currently sit in sixth place, which would be their lowest Premier League finish since the 2018/19 campaign.

But things could get worse for the Red Devils.

West Ham are two points behind Ralf Rangnick’s side going into the final day.

If the Irons beat Brighton they can still finish sixth and condemn the Red Devils to their worst year since 2013/14, when David Moyes ironically started as manager at Old Trafford.

West Ham have better goal difference, so if United draw or lose to Crystal Palace and the Irons win, they will be playing Europa Conference League football next year.

And given that Rangnick’s side have only won two of their last eight games, victory is certainly not guaranteed, and they might need a favor from Graham Potter.

Third team relegated

Leeds gave themselves hope last week with a draw

The relegation battle is between the two sides after Everton’s superb victory against Crystal Palace on Thursday.

The Toffees are finally safe from the fall, meaning it will be Burnley or Leeds who join Watford and Norwich in coming down.

Things couldn’t be tighter between the two rivals as they both head into the final day on 35 points.

Burnley host Newcastle on Sunday while Leeds are at Brentford and, to put it simply, whoever gets the better result will stay in place.

The Clarets also hold a massive 20-goal advantage over Leeds and that could actually count for an extra point.
