Premier League 2022-23: Exciting final day looms as key battles hang in the balance

Three teams battle relegation and six teams compete for European football

With only 12 matches remaining, the Premier League 2022-23 season will finally commence this weekend. Manchester City are the confirmed winner and finish ahead of Arsenal. The championship battle has ended, but the relegation battle is still going on. Everton, Leeds United, and Leicester City have a huge task on hand. Of these three teams, two will definitely go down. There are also a few European places that are yet to be decided.

As the Premier League heads into the final weekend, let’s look at what remains to be decided in the final matches.

Relegation Battle – Everton, Leicester City, and Leeds United

All eyes will be on the relegation battle between these three teams. Southampton are the only team to be relegated from the top division this season. Two spots remain, and three teams have a chance to go down. Everton sits 17th in the league table and have a two-point lead over these two opponents. Leicester City have a superior goal difference compared to the other two teams. These teams are dependent on each other’s results to guarantee a place in the Premier League. Everton have the advantage and could survive this battle.

Final UEFA Champions League spot

The race for the top four is still on. Manchester City and Arsenal will finish first and second, respectively. Newcastle United have also made it to the Champions League and are guaranteed a top-four finish. However, their position is still not confirmed, as Manchester United are knocking on their doors and looking to finish third. Another team that can make it to the top four is Liverpool. Manchester United have a three-point lead over Liverpool and are only one point behind Newcastle United. They have a game in hand over these two opponents. If Manchester United win or earn a draw against Chelsea, they will finish in the top four.
