English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: Sunday 19 May 2024

EPL title race goes to wire between Manchester City and Arsenal on dramatic last day of English Premier League season on Sunday.

The English Premier League title race is going all the way to the wire, as Sunday marks the final day of the season for all 20 top flight clubs.

All ten EPL matches kick off at 16.00 (BST), creating the traditional hopping around the grounds as the campaign comes to its climax.

It’s reigning champions Manchester City and challengers Arsenal who are vying for top spot.

And both will back themselves to secure one last victory in the final push, with the pair enjoying home comforts as the curtain comes down on domestic football ahead of the 2024 European Championships in Germany.

City have their destiny in their own hands as they prepare to face West Ham, for whom veteran boss David Moyes takes charge for the final time.

Pep Guardiola and his side know that a win at the Etihad Stadium will guarantee them yet another Premier League crown against a Hammers team that are guaranteed to finish ninth – while City will otherwise also be EPL kings if they match Arsenal’s result.

The Gunners have a home assignment against Everton, who have finished an agonizing season with a flourish having pulled away from relegation danger despite their points deduction for financial misdemeanors.

Mikel Arteta is going all out to pip his mentor and countryman Guardiola to the finishing line.

But with a two-point deficit to make up, his charges can only take care of business at the Emirates Stadium before casting a nervous glance towards the north west.

Emotions will be sky high at Anfield, meanwhile, as Liverpool bid farewell to legendary coach Jurgen Klopp following a glittering spell on Merseyside for the inspirational German.

Visitors Wolves aren’t in particular need of midtable points with half an eye on the beach, leaving the way clear for the Reds – who will finish third and qualify for the Uefa Champions League no matter what – to say an emotional goodbye to Klopp and his staff.

Joining Klopp’s successor Arne Slot at the top table of European football next season is Unai Emery, who has completed a remarkable turnaround at Aston Villa in less than two years at the helm.

Villa go to Crystal Palace with a fourth-placed finish in the bag and with dreams of ending a four-decade wait to return to the top tier of continental action about to become reality.

The same cannot be said of Tottenham, who travel to long-since relegated Sheffield United with work still to do to finish fifth.

Ange Postecoglou has cut an increasingly irritable figure in the Spurs technical area, with his side fading badly at the back end of his debut campaign in the English game, but they remain odds on to limp over the line in South Yorkshire.

Hot on their heels, somewhat incredibly, are London rivals Chelsea, who host Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has engineered a fine finish to the season, including four straight victories coming into the grand finale, with a fifth against the Cherries giving them the opportunity to pounce on any Spurs slip up at Bramall Lane.

Newcastle are lurking just down the road in west London and likewise looking to pull the same trick on the Blues above them, with Brentford their hosts.

Eddie Howe’s men looking to be finishing on a high but one point from their last possible six has left them playing catch up in their bid to pinch a top six place in the Premier League table.

It was Manchester United who put the boot in on Wednesday night, sealing a 3-2 Old Trafford success that drew them level on points with the Toon Army.

The Red Devils go to a Brighton side that has largely given up the ghost in recent weeks, with a three-point haul giving them a good chance to leapfrogging the Tynesiders into seventh, despite losing a staggering 14 EPL matches coming into the final weekend.

At the wrong end of the standings it’s goodbye to minnows Luton, unless they can pull off a mathematical miracle at home to Fulham.

Bright young coach Rob Edwards has earned plenty of top flight respect beyond the old school confines of Kenilworth Road, but a three point gap to safety and a massive goal difference deficit looks set to condemn the Hatters to an immediate Championship return.

And it’s a hat-trick of instant relegations for last season’s promoted trio, as Burnley bow out of the EPL with a home game against a Nottingham Forest team that should survive relegation by the skin of their teeth.
