A pair of Top Seven tilts finish the Premier League weekend at 11:30 a.m. ET Sunday.

One of the matches, however, carries more significance in terms of what it means to the hosts.


Arsenal will host Burnley in Arsene Wenger‘s final home match as the Gunners’ manager (Watch live on CNBC and online via NBCSports.com).

“I try to focus on what’s most important, to win the game,” Wenger said “Over the years I’ve learned to disconnect from my emotions. Today maybe it will be a bit more difficult.”

Arsenal won’t have Mesut Ozil, and Burnley is without striker Chris Wood.
