The final day: Who can overtake us?

So the final day is upon us and our loss to Tottenham as well as Leicester's win over Arsenal last night means we can't finish any higher than our current position of tenth. Of course, the important thing is that we are safe, but who can deny us a top half finish should we drop points against Chelsea?

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are one of three points level on points with us and their goal difference is only one worse than our's (and they've scored more goals). They're also unbeaten in five games but despite the fact they host an already relegated West Brom side, the Baggies are also in good form since sacking Alan Pardew so hopefully they do us one last favour before heading to the Championship and ensure Palace fail to better our result (then again, if we get the same results but Palace win by more goals or we lose by more, they will finish above us).

AFC Bournemouth

Bournemouth are also on 41 points but their form isn't quite as good as Palace's and their goal difference is five worse than ours. Like Palace, they have a dead rubber game but it will tricky for them as they travel to a Burnley side, who's fans will most likely be in party mood as the Clarets have qualified for the Europa League.


Watford are the lowest ranked team with 41 points and realistically, will need to better our result on Sunday to finish above us as their goal difference is eight worse than our's. The Hornets travel to Old Trafford so that's very unlikely.

Brighton & Hove Albion
