Premier League Final Day

This is it, the Barclays Premier League will be decided tomorrow as there are so many battles from the Manchester battle to be champion to the three-way battle to be in the Champions League to the two teams fighting for one spot in the Premier League. So, what will happen Sunday.

The battle for the Champions League spots.
There are three teams battling for a guaranteed Champions League spot and a qualifying stage Champions League spot that could go to Chelsea as a guarantee if the Stamford Bridge club wins the Champions League. Arsenal is in third one point ahead of Tottenham and two ahead of Newcastle as Arsenal only has to win to keep third and be in next year's Champions League. Arsenal has a tough trip to West Brom as Roy Hodgsen's side will look to send Hodgsen out on a high note with a win. Robin van Persie will look to have a big game to carry Arsenal to the Champions League as I think Arsenal wins 2 to 1 thanks to a RVP double. Tottenham needs to win to keep at least fourth and they can claim third if they win and Arsenal doesn't. Tottenham hosts a Clint Dempsey-less Fulham side and I think Tottenham will cruise to a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Gareth Bale, Emmanuel Adebayor, and Jermaine Defoe. Newcastle needs a win and a loss from Arsenal and a draw/loss from Tottenham to take third but they face a difficult trip to Goodison Park to take on Marouane Fellaini and Everton. This should be an excellent match that should be a high scoring thriller as I see Newcastle winning it at the end 3 to 2 thanks to goals from Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse who will get the winner. All three of these teams have had godd seasons but the finish will be in this order: Arsenal, Tottenham, Newcastle.

Who wins the Premier League and who gets relegated.
Because of the overlap between Manchester City looking to win the Premier League while QPR is looking to stay up, we have combined both the title battle and the survival battle. Bolton has to take on Stoke City as the only they will survive is if they win and QPR loses. However, I think Stoke City and Bolton will end up with a 1-1 draw and Owen Coyle's side will be sent down to the Championship joining Blackburn and Wolverhampton. So, who will win the title?
Manchester United has to win and have Manchester City to lose/draw or United can get a draw and have City lose as those are the only two ways they can win the Premier League. United has a tough trip to take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light as United will do everything they can to win but United will win 3-1 to get the big three points they need to have a shot. Manchester City has an interesting matchup as they hosts survival hopefuls QPR. Both teams have something they want and City will look to win their first league title in 43 years. This should be an exciting game as City will get an early goal from Sergio Aguero before David Silva puts away a second goal to seal the game and the title while QPR will stay up due to the draw by Bolton at the Britannia Stadium.
The blue half of Manchester will be celebrating this year as City will hold off United while QPR will survive in the Premier League with Bolton going down to the Championship.
