Premier League permutations: Everything that could be decided at the top and bottom this weekend

Premier League permutations: Everything that could be decided at the top and bottom this weekend

The Premier League is nearing its end – and we could still get drama at the top and bottom of the table.

There are now just nine days left in the season before all twenty clubs have played their 38 matches. After 760 matches, the 2023/24 season will end at around 6pm on Sunday 19 May, with three teams condemned to relegation, which will be a celebration for many others and only one will win the trophy.

But neither club will be leading the way, with two or three games left to focus on victory. While there are some who find themselves in the middle of the table with little left to fight for other than higher prize money that comes with higher rankings, there is a scrap brewing on both sides.

Will Manchester City or Arsenal win the title? Will Luton or Burnley bring in Nottingham Forest to miraculously escape the trap? Could Tottenham still guide Aston Villa to fourth place? And where will the remaining European places go? Here we look at the permutations for this weekend.

Can the title be decided this weekend?

No. That’s the short answer, but we may not have to wait much longer. Tuesday is the earliest day the Premier League title race could be over – and the defending champions are heavy favorites to secure a sixth title in seven seasons.

City may be second at the moment, one point behind Arsenal, but it is in their hands as they have a game in hand on their rivals. They will go ahead of the Gunners if they beat Fulham in an early kick-off at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
