European places and relegation at stake in the Premier League last weekend

London –

The Premier League title has been decided and the Champions League places have been decided but a European place and relegation are yet to be decided on Sunday when the regular season ends.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle will join champions Manchester City in the Champions League next season. Liverpool and Brighton will finish fifth and sixth respectively to play in the Europa League.

This leaves three teams in contention for seventh place and the Europa Conference League. Aston Villa have 58 points, followed by Tottenham on 57 and Brentford on 56.

Unai Emery has seen Villa rise since taking the reins following the sacking of Steven Gerrard in October and while he was there they were just three points above the relegation zone. The Villa welcomes Brighton.

Tottenham faced Leeds in a duel that could have many goals. But a draw is enough for Spurs as they have an advantage over Villa on goal difference.

Brentford must beat City at home. Pep Guardiola could rest his starting lineup ahead of the FA Cup final and Champions League final.

“I’m a dreamer. I think anything is possible in football,” admitted Brentford manager Thomas Frank on Friday. “We just have to beat the best team in the world. At home, with this group of players, anything is possible.”

West Ham, who are in 14th place, can progress to the Europa League if they win the Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina on 7 June.


Everton, Leicester and Leeds are looking to avoid joining bottom line Southampton in relegation to the Second Division.

Everton are “safe” in 17th place with 33 units. Leicester and Leeds are in the relegation zone with 31 goals each, but Leicester are ahead on goal difference. All three play on Sunday.
