And Now, The End Is Near….

Today by 5pm the curtain comes down on another Premier League season. Most games are being played purely for pride and with some players already having the thoughts of being lay on a sun lounger somewhere tropical, we could yet have some interesting results amongst the ‘dead rubber’ matches.

We already know Chelsea are Champions and they will lift the trophy after their game at home to relegated Sunderland. Middlesbrough and Hull City are of course also condemned to the drop. Back at the top end of the league, Spurs are certain of 2nd but 3rd and 4th and ultimately Champions League football is still to be resolved. Any two from Man city, Liverpool or Arsenal can mathematically fill the those places. Realistically, City and Liverpool are favourites but, anything can happen in football. We have already covered this here….. (prior to midweek fixtures)

A poll on Twitter has been running since Tuesday and 89% currently favour it to be Man City and Liverpool with 11% saying it’ll be Man City and Arsenal.

Golden Boot

Another thing to be resolved is who walks away with the Golden Boot. Helped largely by 4 goals on Thursday night, Harry Kane is now the favourite, but Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez who face each other will not have given up the ghost just yet.

1. Harry Kane 26
2. Romelu Lukaku 24
3. Alexis Sánchez 23
4. Diego Costa 20
5. Sergio Agüero 18

Golden Glove 

Never quite as well publicised, but nevertheless a big deal for a goalkeeper. Thibaut Courtois is guaranteed to win it having kept 16 clean sheets this season. However, if the Chelsea man was to concede tomorrow and Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris, currently on 15, was to manage another shut out, they would then share the award.
