Manchester City could retain the title if they win against West Ham United

On the last day of the Premier League 2023-24, Pep Guardiola’s team take on West Ham. If they make a mistake, though, Arsenal, who are two points below their title rivals, will be waiting in the wings to take home the title as they face Everton.

To have any hope of winning their first championship in twenty years, Arsenal have to win. If they succeed and City and West Ham draw, the trophy’s final destination will be determined by goal differential, with Arsenal sitting at +61 vs City’s +60.

European qualification situation

Champions League football has been secured by Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Aston Villa; but, the Europa League and Conference League spots are still up for grabs

Currently, Tottenham can qualify for the Europa League with a fifth-place finish, and they will do so if they win over Sheffield United, who is relegated, on Sunday.

Chelsea, the only team capable of catching Spurs, will advance into fifth place if they defeat Bournemouth at home in the event that Spurs lose at Bramall Lane.

However, if Newcastle triumph at Brentford and the Cherries win at Stamford Bridge, they will go up to sixth place. Manchester United and the Magpies are tied for points, but because of their worse goal differential, it is unlikely that they will be able to pass Chelsea.

But there’s a catch: City and United meet on Saturday, May 25, at Wembley, and everything hinges on the FA Cup winners, who will be awarded a spot in the Europa League.

The team that finishes sixth in the Premier League will get a spot in the Europa League if City wins the FA Cup and is assured a spot in the Champions League.

Consequently, the Conference League spot will go to the team that finishes seventh, which is now Newcastle. However, if United wins against Brighton and Eddie Howe’s team loses to Brentford, they would move above Newcastle.

Premier League Relegation battle

The Hatters trail Nottingham Forest by three points, however, their goal differential is -31 as opposed to Nuno Espirito Santo’s team’s goal differential of -19.

Luton would need to defeat Fulham at home, hope that Forest loses at Burnley, and create a 12-goal difference swing in order to survive.
