The race to secure the final two Champions League qualification spots from the Premier League is going to the last day of the season.
And two of the three teams still in contention will be going head to head: Leicester and Manchester United both won on Thursday to ensure their meeting on July 26 will have plenty riding on it – notably tens of millions of pounds in potential Champions League prize money next season.
Leicester’s 2-0 home victory over Sheffield United was followed hours later by a 2-0 win for United at Crystal Palace. It left the two teams tied on points with two games remaining, with fourth-place Leicester only ahead by virtue of a superior goal difference.
Before their final-day showdown at King Power Stadium, Leicester are away to Tottenham on Sunday and Man United host West Ham on Wednesday.
If Leicester and United both win those games, they realistically could find themselves in third and fourth place, respectively, because Chelsea — currently one point ahead of them in third place — are away to champions Liverpool in their penultimate game.
Aston Villa’s hopes of staying up received a big blow after they conceded a late goal to draw 1-1 at Everton, while Brighton are almost sure of another season in the top flight after a 1-1 draw at Southampton.
