With the Champions League and relegation spots yet to be confirmed, there’s bound to be drama when the 2019/20 Premier League season comes to a close on Sunday. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the Premier League final day.
What still needs to be decided?
Two months later than scheduled and with no fans in the stands, Sunday will see the curtain finally come down on the 2019/20 Premier League season. Liverpool may have already been crowned champions but there is still plenty to be decided at both ends of the table on the final day.
Just one point separates Manchester United and Chelsea from Leicester in the battle for a top four spot. The Foxes face United on the final day in what is effectively a straight shoot-out for Champions League qualification. Chelsea will hope to pick up all three points at home to Wolves, although it will be no easy task, especially with Nuno Espírito Santo’s side locked in a battle of their own to secure a Europa League spot.
Meanwhile, two from Aston Villa, Watford and Bournemouth will join Norwich in the Championship next season. Villa go to West Ham, who have already guaranteed their safety, while Watford and Bournemouth face tough trips to Arsenal and West Ham respectively.

With some teams already ‘on the beach’ and others with little reason to play defensively, the final day of the season traditionally produces significantly more goals than the average throughout the rest of the season. 36 goals were scored on the final day last term. That’s an average of 3.60 goals per game, compared to the seasonal average of 2.82.

Arsenal v Watford
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road earlier this season and has found the back of the net against the Hornets on a further two occasions.
Burnley v Brighton
Since their first Premier League campaign in 2017/18, no side has had more 0-0 draws in the competition than Brighton (11).
Chelsea v Wolves
Chelsea have won eight of their 11 Premier League fixtures against Wolves, losing twice and drawing once.
Crystal Palace v Spurs
Spurs’ last four final day league fixtures have produced 27 goals – almost seven goals per game.
Everton v Bournemouth
Everton have won all four of their Premier League home games against Bournemouth, netting 12 goals in the process.
Leicester v Man Utd
United have won 18 of their 27 top-flight meetings with the Foxes, drawing seven and losing just twice.
Man City v Norwich
City’s only defeat in their past 11 final day Premier League games came at home to Norwich in 2012/13.
Newcastle v Liverpool
Mohamed Salah has been involved in five goals in his last four Premier League games against Newcastle (4 goals, 1 assist).
Southampton v Sheffield Utd
Saints have lost just one of their eight matches since the restart, taking 15 points out of a possible 24.
West Ham v Aston Villa
Aston Villa haven’t won their final league match in any of the past eight seasons, drawing two and losing six.
The race for the Golden Boot
Jamie Vardy goes into the final day in pole position to claim his first Golden Boot. Danny Ings is hot on his tail, however. The in-form Southampton striker needs a brace against Sheffield United to equal Vardy’s tally, assuming he blanks against United.
