Wins for Arsenal and Manchester City ensure final-day tension

Wins for Arsenal and Manchester City ensure final-day tension

A quick refresher: the fourth-place team wins a spot in the Champions League playoffs while the third-place team is guaranteed a spot in the group stage.

A 1-1 draw between Arsenal and Everton, who were themselves once chasing qualification for the Champions League, and a 2-0 defeat for Liverpool against Middlesbrough will mean both clubs finish on 73 points, with an identical goal difference of positive 31 - 75 scored and 44 conceded.

The title is done and dusted, the relegation battle is no more, the top six is set in stone; so the only real matter of concern going into the final day of the English Premier League is the battle for a top four place.

If Arsenal draw 1-1 with Everton, and Liverpool lose 2-0 to Middlesbrough, there would be a play-off between Arsenal and Liverpool to decide who finishes fourth to enter the Champions League qualifying round.

Manchester City closed in on third place after sweeping past West Bromwich Albion 3-1 on Tuesday, while an Alexis Sanchez double helped Arsenal to stay in the hunt for at least fourth with a 2-0 win over relegated Sunderland. That being said, if they have saved their best performance for the final day of the season, Arsenal fans will be hoping the play-off is scheduled for Friday 26 May.

Ian Wright is backing Liverpool to beat Middlesbrough and secure a place in next season's Champions League competition.

Liverpool have only qualified for either the Champions League or Europa League three times in the last five seasons, missing any European action in the 2013/14 season and this season (2016/17).

Liverpool also have a home game, but while Arsenal play a team in seventh place in the league and one that almost threatened the top six, the Reds host the already-relegated Middlesbrough.

"We have to defend well, we have to be good organisationally, we have to create chances and we have to score goals". Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are all vying for two spaces in the league table.

Rooney's stellar United career is in danger of fizzling out after a season of frustration and he is unlikely to make the starting line-up in the Europa League final against Ajax next Wednesday.

In this situation, Arsenal will finish 5th as the losing team will get the 4th place.

Arsenal beat Everton 1-0. He obliged with two headers and a penalty, for which he had been upended, in the fifth, seventh and 83rd minutes although Arsenal, for whom Charlie Buchan played his final game, denied Everton with a last-gasp equaliser.
