The latest permutations as the end of the football season approaches

The end of the football season is fast approaching and thankfully there is still so much to play for in all divisions.

If you’ve managed to lose track of who is still in the running for what, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our update on all the ongoing battles in the Premier League and EFL.

The Premier League

There is still so much to play for in the top flight this season. Liverpool and Manchester City have been going toe to toe in the race for glory over the last few months with neither side willing to budge. Tonight is arguably the biggest game left this season as Manchester City travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, knowing that a win for United will put their fierce rivals Liverpool in the driving seat for the title.

United’s pursuit of Champions League qualification is still in the balance this season with Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal also fighting it out for the two remaining top four spaces.

At the bottom of the table, Huddersfield and Fulham have already been relegated this season, leaving Brighton and Cardiff fighting to avoid the final relegation spot.


The Championship

Norwich can win the title if they beat Blackburn Rovers at home this weekend, whilst the battle for the other automatic promotion spot appears to be going in Sheffield United’s favour after Leeds dropped points against Brentford on Easter Monday. Sheffield United can seal their Premier League spot if Leeds drop points against Aston Villa on Sunday.

In the playoffs, West Brom have secured their spot and they will be joined by Aston Villa who are finishing like a train this season, winning their last 10 games in a row. The final spot could go to any of Derby, Middlesbrough or Bristol City.

Down at the bottom of the table, Ipswich and Bolton will be playing in League One next season and they look like being joined by Rotherham United.


League One

The top of League One is fascinating with four teams all in with a chance of winning the title or gaining automatic promotion. Luton Town are in position alongside Barnsley but they are being closely tracked by Sunderland and Portsmouth who both have a game in hand on the top two and take each other on this Saturday in a must-win game for both sides.

Charlton have secured their playoff place, whilst it looks like a battle between Doncaster and Peterborough for that final space.

Down at the bottom, any three from Walsall, Scunthorpe, Wimbledon, Plymouth and Southend will join Bradford in League Two next season.


League Two

Lincoln are Champions, whilst Bury, Mansfield, MK Dons, Forest Green and Tranmere are all battling for the two remaining automatic promotion spaces.

The final playoff place is again wide open, as Exeter, Colchester, Carlisle, Stevenage, Newport, Oldham, Crewe and Swindon can all mathematically qualify.

At the bottom of the table, just one team from Macclesfield, Yeovil and Notts County will survive this season.
