The Battle of Super Sunday

This Sunday sees the (disrupted) Premier League season come to an end in the most exciting way possible. All 20 teams play on the same day, all ten matches played at the same time.

This year’s Super Sunday will be a nail biting, edge of your seat affair with a three-way battle for a top four finish and one of two spots in the Champions League (Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City) and a three-way relegation battle at the bottom (Aston Villa, Watford and AFC Bournemouth) with only one surviving to see another season in the English top-flight.

Premier League Table as it stands
(C- Champions, R- Relegated, GP – Games Played, GD- Goal Difference)




Battle for Top Four

The fight for a place in next season’s Champions League will be intense, especially with Manchester United traveling to rivals Leicester City. Here’s what each team needs in order to secure a top four finish:

Manchester United (at LC):

  • Win or a draw vs Leicester

    OR
  • Chelsea Lose vs Wolves

Chelsea (vs Wolves):

  • Win or draw vs Wolves

    OR
  • lose & Man Utd win at Leicester

Leicester City (vs MU)

  • Win vs Man Utd

    OR
  • Draw vs Man Utd & Chelsea lose to Wolves



Relegation Battle

The fight to stay in the Premier League might be just as thrilling, with three teams hoping the sporting Gods will sway in their favor. Here’s what each team at the bottom needs in order to see another Premier League season:

Aston Villa (at WH):

  • Better Watford‘s result

    OR
  • Draw vs West Ham & Watford draw vs Arsenal


Watford (at Ars):

  • Better Aston Villa‘s result

Bournemouth (at EVE):

  • Win vs Everton

    AND
  • BOTH Villa & Watford lose


Aston Villa and Watford are level on points (34), Villa currently sit above the Hornets on goal difference by a single goal, hence why they have to better each other’s results. Meanwhile Bournemouth sits 2pts behind them meaning they can only survive if they win and get all 3pts and their rivals both lose.

Whatever happens come Sunday one thing is guaranteed, an exhilarating day of soccer that we can all enjoy, along with many moments of shock, awe, horror, happiness, joy and despair.
