Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen, for the final installation of Bleacher Report's 2011-12 season commentary for the English Premier League with me, Karl Matchett.

After a long, hard, 37-match slog for all 20 Premiership teams, it has all come down to this final round of fixtures.

At the very top of the pile, Manchester City need a home win to record their first ever Premier League title and their first league championship trophy since 1968.

At the very bottom, QPR need a single point to ensure they remain in the division for at least another season, in so doing that condemning Bolton Wanderers to relegation and in all probability Manchester City to having to suffer in second spot, watching rivals Manchester United pip them to the trophy at the last.

Goal difference could well play a key part in the final league standings come full time in all the matches—rest assured I'll keep you up to date on all the scores elsewhere, and the as-it-stands league table.

As ever, you can get involved by leaving your comments below and I'll reply in-blog. Keep it right here, folks, for all the best build-up, in-game live action and post-match reaction.
