The top-four drama has made it to the last day where everything is on the line. Leicester City host the Red Devils on the final day of the Premier League. They both will be looking to secure top four finishes whereas Chelsea will face Wolves at the same time.

The Foxes stand fifth in the table currently, just one point behind third-placed United and fourth-placed Chelsea. Leicester looked destined to finish third as the games restarted but a poor form post-lockdown has put their hopes of a top four finish in jeopardy. A win or a draw could potentially see them climb up into the top four.

Manchester United salvaged a draw against West Ham United in their last outing. They looked very scrappy and tired against an in-form Hammers team. They will  have to pick up their form and will have to perform better against Leicester if they want to qualify for the Champions League.
