And just like that, we are down to the final matchweek of the 2021-22 season.

Despite there only being one game remaining for all 20 teams, there are still multiple positional battles going on.

At the top of the table is a neck-and-neck fight between Manchester City and Liverpool. All City needs to do is defeat Aston Villa to repeat as champions. However, if they lose and Liverpool beats Wolverhampton, then the Reds will be hoisting the title. 

A few spots below lie Tottenham and Arsenal. Both teams are vying for fourth place, which would grant them a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League tournament. Arsenal had the advantage the last two weeks but lost both games. They’ll need 20th-place Norwich to defeat the Spurs and win against Everton themselves to reclaim fourth place.

Right underneath them sit Manchester United and West Ham. United is currently in sixth place, good for a UEFA Europa League qualification spot. The Hammers are two points behind in seventh, putting them in the UEFA Europa Conference League. A West Ham win and a United loss would swap the two sides.

The last positional battle is between Burnley and Leeds United for relegation. Norwich City and Watford are already confirmed to play in the EFL Championship next season, but no one wants 18th place. Both Burnley and Leeds have 35 points apiece, but the Clarets have the superior goal differential. Let’s see how that plays out.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Matchweek 38:
