Premier League’s thrilling final day drama

The Premier League relegation battle is set to take center stage on the final day of the season, as Everton, Leeds United, and Leicester City all fight to secure their top-flight status.

The Premier League has confirmed the live TV fixtures for Sunday’s crucial matches. While the title race and the battle for the top four may already be settled, the relegation dogfight promises high stakes and intense drama.

With all matches kicking off at 4.30 pm, Sky Sports will broadcast the clashes between Leicester City and West Ham, as well as Everton and Bournemouth.

BT Sport, on the other hand, will provide live coverage of the Leeds United versus Tottenham Hotspur encounter.

Currently, Everton finds themselves in the most favorable position, sitting on 33 points. A victory at Goodison Park would secure their safety.

Leicester City and Leeds United, both on 31 points, must not only win their matches but also hope for other results to go their way to avoid relegation.

Crucially, Leicester City holds a superior goal difference over their rivals, adding an additional layer of complexity to the situation.

For Everton, a loss combined with a Leicester City win would see them drop from the Premier League for the first time in its 31-year history.

Who will survive?

Sam Allardyce’s Leeds United, on the other hand, require victory over Tottenham Hotspur and must rely on Everton’s defeat and Leicester City’s failure to win.

The upcoming “Survival Sunday,” a term coined by Sky Sports for the dramatic final day of the 2004/05 campaign, is poised to put fans of all involved teams through a nerve-wracking experience.

Back then, Norwich City, Crystal Palace, Southampton, and West Brom fought desperately to avoid relegation, with only one team ultimately surviving—the underdogs, West Brom.

Sky Sports Main Event will begin its build-up at 4 pm, while the Sky Sports Football channel will kick off at 4.30 pm, following the League Two play-off final. BT Sport 1 will provide live coverage from Elland Road starting at 3.30 pm.

The Premier League’s fixture choices were influenced by last weekend’s outcomes, with Arsenal’s defeat to Nottingham Forest securing Manchester City’s title regardless of their remaining matches.

Liverpool’s draw against Aston Villa left them with a slim chance of overcoming Manchester United for a top-four finish, although mathematically, hope remains if the Red Devils lose to Chelsea on Thursday.
