Premier League: Things to look forward to from the final Gameweek

Premier League 2016/17 has come to an end, with the last set of matches scheduled to take place tonight.


Well, Premier League title? WON

Teams to be relegated? DONE

Teams, to fight for a Europa League Spot? TAKEN

The only thing that people are fighting for is the third, fourth and fifth spot, which officially still happens to be open. A Manchester City win or a draw will assure them a top-4 finish. A loss will only bash them out provided Arsenal win by a big margin and Liverpool also gets a win. A Liverpool win will secure them a place in the top-4 next season, while a draw or a loss will endanger them while in that case, an Arsenal win will bash them out of the top-4 dream. To simplify, Liverpool needs to match Arsenal’s result to get to top-4. On the contrary, Arsenal will be completely dependent on the other two sides, as even a win won’t be enough provided City don’t lose, and Liverpool win. Let’s just hope and watch.

A farewell for the oldies. Chelsea will be giving the goodbye ribbon to a cult hero, their fan favourite, their bad boy, the one and only John Terry, and they are perhaps lucky to be playing the home game in his final game. Conte is expected to start him this week, as the whole of Stamford Bridge will be trying out something special for their captain.

Apart from that, Manchester City will be giving farewell to the oldest serving player in the side, Pablo Zabaleta. The right-back has been out of sort lately and a summer move to West Ham is quite imminent. We wish them the best wherever their soul converges to because at the end of the day football is about respect and passion.

Jose Mourinho might finally field his first team available players to finish off the season with a win and to replicate a similar performance in the Europa League final against Ajax. Mourinho recently said that “They are a Champions League team, they come from the Champions League.

“I always disagree with it. I don’t think a team should play two European competitions in a season. If you don’t qualify [for the Champions League] I think they should go home. We finish fifth [in the Premier League] last year. We went into the Europa League. We started the Europa League from beginning of season and we have to fight to get where we are.”

Well, whatever be it, tomorrow will be a sad day for football fans, as the Premier League will halt only to come back after three months. But don’t worry mates, as an exciting transfer window is in the offing and we will be covering every bit of it in style.
