The Premier League season reaches its conclusion on Sunday, with Manchester City in pole position for the title after their midweek win over Aston Villa.

Coupled with Liverpool's late collapse at Crystal Palace on Monday, Manuel Pellegrini's team now need just a point from the visit of West Ham United to be crowned champions.

Liverpool will continue to battle for the Premier League crown when Newcastle United are the visitors to Anfield on Sunday.

Chelsea are out of the title race, but they will be looking to end the season on a high at already-relegated Cardiff City.

Arsenal will be looking to build momentum ahead of the FA Cup final with a win at Norwich City, who are effectively down after Sunderland's midweek victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Manchester United complete a disappointing season when they travel to Southampton, while Everton are at Hull City.
