Who will avoid Premier League relegation and who is set to fall? Mail Sport’s CHRIS SUTTON offers his predictions for the final Premier League weekend
- Chris Sutton has given his verdict on the Premier League’s final weekend
- Everton will beat Bournemouth to maintain their status in the English top-flight
- While Manchester City will once again impress in London against Brentford
The 2022/23 Premier League season is in its final lap as the weekend prepares to rubber stamp the end of another English top-flight campaign.
The title has already been decided with Manchester City closing in on a third consecutive crown with a week to go, but there is still plenty to fight for.
Everton, Leicester and Leeds are locked in a three-way relegation fight, but only one of them can avoid the dreaded drop to the Championship on the closing day of the season.
Meanwhile, Arsenal, Manchester United and shock contenders Newcastle have wrapped up the remaining Champions League qualification spots behind City.
Mail Sport’s Chris Sutton gives his Premier League predictions for the final weekend of action.
Man City have wrapped up the Premier League title heading into the final weekend
Sean Dyche’s Everton will beat Bournemouth to retain their place in the Premier League
Arsenal 2 Wolves 0
It’s a dead rubber but Arsenal will still end the season in style in front of their home supporters.
Aston Villa 1 Brighton 1
Villa beat Brighton earlier this season but I’m not sure they will do it tomorrow. The Seagulls may field a rotated side but they are still on the rise after securing their golden ticket to Europe.
Brentford 1 Man City 2
Completing the league double with Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions will cap a brilliant season for Brentford. It’s close, but I expect City to finish.
Chelsea 0 Newcastle 2
Newcastle may be on the beach having secured their place in the Champions League but they will still have too much for Chelsea. The Blues have been miserable this season.
Crystal Palace 2 Nottingham Forest 0
I’m not sure many could have done a better job than Roy Hodgson at Palace and his side should end the season with a win at home.
Everton 1 Bournemouth 0
It will be a nervous day for Sean Dyche and his team if this game is close I think. But I think they will have enough to succeed and survive.
Leeds boss Sam Allardyce looks lost when it comes to rescuing his side’s defence
Man United clinched Champions League qualification heading into the final weekend
Leeds 1 Tottenham 1
Even Big Sam looked at a loss on how to shore up Leeds at the back. I don’t see them winning against a Spurs side that has been hot and cold all season.
Leicester 2 West Ham 1
Dean Smith gambled that they could draw at Newcastle, win this game and stay up. The first two parts may go to plan but the third is out of their hands.
Man United 2 Fulham 1
There were plenty of fireworks when these sides last met and, although Marco Silva’s side will do it again this time, United should have more than enough for them.
Southampton 0 Liverpool 2
The Saints owe their fans a big performance after a dismal season but I don’t think they will deliver. Jurgen Klopp’s side will end up with a comfortable win on the south coast.
