It all comes down to this. The final day of the Premier League season will affect the standings at both ends of the division, with the race for Europe and the scrap to avoid the drop still yet to be decided.
Players and coaching staff alike will have hoped that such a fate-defining showdown could have been avoided, but the league’s tendency to drag down teams kicking and screaming has once again set up a series of clashes that are certain to live long in the memory.
Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester will hope to clinch the final two Champions League spots up for grabs, with one giant club braced for disappointment on an unimaginable scale. Just below, Wolves and Tottenham will aim to finish in sixth and secure a Europa League place.
And down at the bottom are three teams fighting with every sinew to preserve their top flight status. Aston Villa may have hauled themselves out the relegation zone after beating Arsenal, but Watford and Bournemouth may yet experience deadline day delirium.
