#6 More away game blues for Nottingham Forest?

Nottingham Forest managed to survive in the Premier League despite playing in the competition for the first time since the 1998-99 season. Their final game of the season is away to Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park and the Tricky Trees are looking to end their away game blues.

Steve Cooper’s side hasn’t won away from home in the league since a 1-0 win at Southampton on 5 January, a run that stretches back by nine games now, of which seven ended in defeats.

#7 Manchester United prepping for FA Cup final with a big win

With a 4-1 drubbing of Chelsea on Thursday, Manchester United have officially qualified for the Champions League. Now, their aim is to end their season on a high. Having started it all off with back-to-back losses, the Red Devils picked up thereafter and achieved a top-four finish in Erik ten Hag’s first season in charge.

United host Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday in their final league game and will be aiming to win big as it would be a huge boost ahead of their FA Cup final with Manchester City next weekend at Wembley.

#6 Arsenal looking to put title disappointment behind them

What was ultimately a disappointing title charge for Arsenal, who blew away the title race in the home stretch, are looking to end an otherwise impressive campaign with a win over Wolverhampton.

The Gunners have lost their last two games – a 3-0 home loss to Brighton followed by a shock 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest that crowned City as champions – risk losing for a third time in a row here.

However, the north London side has a 70% win rate on the final Premier League matchday, more than any side in the competition right now.

#4 Manchester City aiming to break the 90-point mark yet again

Unless Brentford pulls off a shocker on the final day, Manchester City is expected to hit the 90-point mark on the final day. They are currently on 89 points from 37 games with a third consecutive title in the bag.

The Bees won’t make it any easy for them, however, as a win for them could open up the possibility of swopping into European places, provided Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur both lose.
