What’s to play for in the Premier League on the final day?

0 Comments

With 37 matchweeks of the 2021-22 Premier League season in the books, so much is still to play for, from the title race all the way down to the relegation battle.

The title race is still on, the top-four race is still on, Europa League qualification is still up for grabs, as are two places in the top half (with six sides still in contention) and one spot in next season’s Premier League.

As we head into the final day of the 2021-22 Premier League season, culminating in 10 games played simultaneously on Championship Sunday (Watch live, on NBC’s family of networks and online via Peacock Premium), let’s dive into the details and betting odds for each and every race up and down the table…


Premier League title

What was originally thought to be a four-horse race quickly became a three-horse race, and by the frantic festive period was down to two: Manchester City and Liverpool.

The defending Premier League champions took the top spot for the first time all season back in matchweek 16 (Dec. 4), and they haven’t relinquished control since. At one point, their lead swelled to as many as 11 points (the Reds sat 3rd, behind Chelsea), and it looked like they might lift the trophy again before spring had even sprung. Then, they dropped a few points (nine, in two months’ time, from mid-January to late-March), and Liverpool began to play their games in hand.

They won. And they won. And they won, until they were separated by just a point. They played one another dead even in a riveting 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium to start April. Now, four days before Championship Sunday, the gap is one after Liverpool beat Southampton on Tuesday.

Regardless who comes out on top, we thank them both for an incredible season of brilliant football.

Premier League run-in: Title race

1st: Man City – 90 points (37 games) GD +72
2nd: Liverpool – 89 points (37 games) GD +66

Remaining games

Man City: Aston Villa (H)
Liverpool: Wolves (H)

Premier League title: betting odds

Man City -715
Liverpool +500

Top four (UEFA Champions League)

Just as water always finds its level, Tottenham and Arsenal (or is it Arsenal and Tottenham?) always seem to find one another. A north London derby demolition job saw Spurs pull to within one point of the Gunners, before going two points above them with a hard-fought win over Burnley on the weekend.

All of the pressure is now was squarely on Arsenal, who would have finished (no worse than) 4th if they had won their final two games. Not to over-simplify things, but it really was that simple. They lost to Newcastle on Monday, though, thus Tottenham will clinch Champions League qualification with a win or draw against last-place Norwich on Championship Sunday.

Elsewhere, Chelsea clinched a top-four place as a result of Arsenal’s defeat and all but guaranteed themselves 3rd place with a draw against Leicester on Thursday.

Premier League run-in: Top four

3rd: Chelsea – 71 points (37 games) GD +42 [Qualified]
4th: Tottenham Hotspur – 68 points (37 games) GD +24
5th: Arsenal –  66 points (37 games) GD +9

Remaining games

Chelsea: Leicester (H – RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS), Watford (H)
Tottenham: Norwich (A)
Arsenal: Newcastle (A – RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS), Everton (H)

Premier League top four: betting odds

Tottenham -2500
Arsenal +1400


Top six (Europa League)

Having already missed out on the top four, one of Manchester United or West Ham will finish 6th and qualify for the Europa League, with the other falling one tier further down to the Europa Conference League. Whichever side of north London fails to snatch 4th will also head to the Europa League.

Premier League run-in: Top six

6th: Manchester United – 58 points (37 games) GD +1
7th: West Ham United – 56 points (37 games) GD +11

Remaining games

Manchester United: Crystal Palace (A)
West Ham: Brighton (A)

Premier League top six: betting odds

Man United -556
West Ham +350


Top half

Sure, finishing in the “top half” might not sound like an important achievement to Man City, Liverpool or Chelsea fans, but imagine you’ve supported Brentford your entire life, went to see them play in the fourth division as recently as 13 years ago, and now, the Bees are potentially one win away from finishing in the top 10 of the top league in England the world in their first season in said league.

Oh, and the difference in Premier League prize money for finishing 9th (highest Brentford can achieve) and 14th (the lowest)? $14 million. It matters.

Premier League run-in: Top half

9th: Leicester City – 49 points (37 games) GD 0
10th: Brighton & Hove Albion – 48 points (37 games) GD -4
11th: Brentford – 46 points (37 games) GD -7
12th: Newcastle United 46 (37 games) GD -19
13th: Crystal Palace – 45 points (37 games) GD +3
14th: Aston Villa – 45 points (37 games) GD -1

Remaining games

Leicester: Chelsea (A – RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS), Southampton (H)
Brighton: West Ham (H)
Brentford: Leeds (H)
Crystal Palace: Everton (A – RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS), Manchester United (H)
Aston Villa: Burnley (H – RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS), Manchester City (A)
Newcastle: Arsenal (H – RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS), Burnley (A)


Relegation

Norwich and Watford have already seen their places in the EFL Championship confirmed for next season (to be replaced by Fulham and Bournemouth, so far), but there’s still one more place in the bottom three to be decided.

Leeds only just got back to the Premier League last season when they looked long for the division, and Burnley have perhaps flirted with danger one too many times. Everton have saved themselves on Thursday, leaving it to the Clarets and the Whites to scrap for the final place in next season’s Premier League on Sunday.

Premier League run-in: Relegation

16th: Everton – 39 points (37 games) GD -19 [Safe]
17th: Burnley – 35 points (37 games) GD -18

——————————————————–

18th: Leeds United – 35 points (37 games) GD -38

Aston Villa vs Burnley final score: Clarets battle to crucial point

0 Comments

Burnley battled to a draw at Aston Villa as their Premier League fate is in their own hands heading into the final game of the season.

[ MORE: How to watch Premier League in USA

Ashley Barnes’ penalty kick right on half time put Burnley ahead but Emiliano Buendia equalized early in the second half. Nick Pope put in a superb display in goal for Burnley to keep Villa at bay and Wout Weghorst could have won it late on.

With the draw Burnley move out of the relegation zone on goal difference as they have 35 points, the same number of points as Leeds United and both teams have one game remaining.

That means as long as they match or better Leeds’ result on the final day they will be a Premier League team next season. Villa have 45 points.

Three things we learned from Aston Villa vs Burnley

1. Burnley battling until the end: This Burnley side will never, ever give up and they’ve shown that for so many years under Sean Dyche. In fact they’ve got even scrappier since Sean Dyche was sacked and caretaker boss Mike Jackson came in. With three wins and two draws in his seven games in charge the Clarets are hanging in there and have given themselves a chance of survival heading into the final game. If you had to bet on one Premier League team to scrap to get a point or win at home on the final day, Burnley would be right up there towards the top of the list. They can do this against Newcastle.

2. Villa’s Gerrard revolution needs new energy: He rested a few key players in Ings and Coutinho but this performance summed up that Villa need new energy and some big additions over the summer. Gerrard has said he has a very even squad and he only wants to add quality if he brings new players in. It looks like some new players out wide and at center back will be a priority for the Villa manager who has lost a little momentum after his fine start when he took charge back in November. Villa have won just two of their last 10 games.

3. VAR drama goes against Burnley: They can feel hard done by as Ashley Barnes’ effort in the second half looked to have hit the arm of Lucas Digne and they could have had a penalty kick, plus Matty Cash’s throw-in before Buendia’s goal was definitely a foul throw but somehow VAR didn’t intervene. Even the red card on Lowton late on was checked by VAR but stood and Burnley could appeal it. Burnley’s fans were incensed with the decisions and let’s see how big of an impact it has but in all fairness Barnes was lucky to escape a red card for an early elbow on Mings. Maybe these decisions canceled each other out?

Man of the Match: Nick Pope – Two great stops to deny McGinn in the first half, then a brilliant save to deny Bertrand Traore.


Pope stands tall

Villa started well as Nathan Collins had to hack clear as Burnley were under severe pressure early on but the Clarets did settle down and Dwight McNeil almost got in at the other end.

Nick Pope made a fine save to deny John McGinn’s curler from a short corner as Villa pushed to take the lead.

[ VIDEO: Premier League highlights ]

At the other end after a corner was cleared McNeil’s shot looked to be heading in but Villa’s Matty Cash cleared.

Pope then made another fine stop to deny McGinn as Burnley’s goalkeeper stood tall.

Burnley’s lead short-lived

Right on half time Burnley were awarded a penalty kick as Maxwel Cornet turned in the box and Buendia brought him down. Barnes slammed home the spot kick to send the away fans wild.

Just after half time Buendia made up for his mistake as he equalized. A cross from the right from McGinn was perfect for Buendia and his low volley squirmed past Pope and went in.

Villa were much better after equalizing but Burnley stood firm and then had a big shout for a penalty kick but no penalty was awarded via VAR for handball on Lucas Digne.

Late chances galore

Substitute Danny Ings almost won it for Villa late on but his low shot flew inches wide, then Pope denied Bertrand Traore brilliantly as he pushed his header away.

Burnley should have won it late on as Emiliano Martinez somehow saved at the near post, then the ball dropped to substitute Wout Weghorst but his shot was somehow blocked by Tyrone Mings.

Substitute Matt Lowton was then sent off in stoppage time for a reckless challenge but Burnley held on for a point.

Aston Villa vs Burnley: The relegation-battling Clarets find themselves occupying the third and final relegation place ahead of their trip to Villa Park on Thursday (Watch live at 3 pm ET, on Peacock Premium).

ASTON VILLA v BURNLEY STREAM LIVE

As things stand, Burnley (34 points – 36 games played) sit 18th and would currently be relegated to the EFL Championship next season, but the Clarets, like 16th-place Everton (36 points), have a game in hand on 17th-place Leeds United (35 points – 37 games). Those games in hand will be played nearly simultaneously on Thursday. For Burnley, it’s a question of whether or not they have earned a seventh successive season in the Premier League. Leeds would like to stick around for season no. 3, while Everton have been in the top flight of English football since 1954.

Aston Villa (44 points – 13th place) are well clear of the relegation scrap down at the bottom of the table, hoping to make a bit more headway in an even tighter battle in the middle. Steven Gerrard’s side could to 15th in a worst-case outcome, or climb as high as 9th if they win their final two games and results elsewhere go their way.
