After months of drama, we have reached the conclusion and final matches of the Premier League season. And we still do not know who the champions of England will be. 

However, Manchester City are the strong favourites to score their second championship in three years. A draw at home against West Ham is all they need to give them the title and glory.

But if they slip, a win by Liverpool against Newcastle at Anfield will give the Reds their first domestic league championship in 24 years.

For the first time ever, all 10 final Premier League games will be available to watch on US TV, across NBC's umbrella of channels.

Here is a list of the final week of Premier League fixtures, with predictions, and how you can catch all of the action:

Manchester City vs. West Ham

Unless we see one of the greatest football shocks of all-time, the Premier League title will be on its way to the blue half of Manchester on Sunday.

Any positive result will see Manchester City crowned champions at Manuel Pellegrini's first attempt at title glory in England.

West Ham have nothing to play for, but former Liverpool player Andy Carroll might fancy doing his former club a favour and give them a chance at winning the championship.

Only a West Ham victory can truly help the Merseysiders who are in second place, behind City by two points, per BBC Sport.

Adam Shergold of the Mail Online wrote about the possible shock scenario on Wednesday. He said:

Liverpool took a financial hit of £35million when they let Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing go to West Ham back in August. Both were expensive acquisitions who failed to make the grade at Anfield and, with better options available, Liverpool decided to cut their losses.

Now, the two rejected ones could repay that lost money by helping the Hammers to a win over champions-elect Manchester City on Sunday and deliver the title to Merseyside for the first time in 24 years.

Anything but a City win looks unlikely, especially after they defeated Aston Villa 4-0 on Wednesday without getting into top gear.

But football is a strange sport, and Liverpool can have hope until the final whistle is blown on Sunday afternoon. 

Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for a miracle after his team's luck has evaporated in such short time.


Liverpool vs. Newcastle

It should have been the day that Steven Gerrard lifted the Premier League trophy above his head—and it still might be.

But Liverpool's hopes of title glory have slipped through their fingers since their recent defeat at home to Chelsea.

The Reds have managed to score an amazing 99 goals this season, per Squawka, and have been one of the best teams to watch anywhere in Europe in 2014.

But their weak defence has let them down just at the point of totality, and it seems like they will have to be content with second place.

This is an amazing achievement considering their performance from last year, but every fan of the Anfield club will be mourning what should have been a glorious occasion. 

Newcastle have been decidedly average this season after an electric start. It is questionable whether Alan Pardew will still have a job at St James' Park next season. He will have to rebuild if the team has any chance of penetrating the top six.


Southampton vs. Manchester United

It has been a monumental season for both clubs in 2013-14: For Southampton, it has been glorious; for Manchester United, a calamity.

The reigning champions have collapsed after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, and with the tenure of David Moyes terminated by the Glazer family, the team now awaits a new manager. 

However, a victory over their south coast hosts could see United end up in sixth position, leapfrogging Tottenham and taking the final Europa League spot. 

It would be a bizarre end to United's campaign as they look to write off the year and rebuild for the future.

Southampton have been mainstays in the top 10 all season long and are guaranteed 8th position in the table. Newcastle are six points behind them and cannot reach them.

United are likely to field a strong side in what could be the last game for the club for Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra and Ryan Giggs.

Nemanja Vidic will say his farewell to the travelling United support as he leaves to join Inter Milan.
