Winners and Losers

Sunday brings the curtain down in the EPL with a champion still to be decided, the fate of one final relegated club to be determined, and third place ensuring next season Champions League football up for grabs. Some thoughts for the final day.

Man City will be champions. No shocker here. The Citizens are in full charge and I cannot see them being stopped at home to QPR. Man City are easily recommended as a Win here.

Man Utd will rue their final moments of madness against Everton a fortnight ago which will eventually cost them the title. They are going to Sunderland their heads low, and might not even get the 3 points at the Stadium of Light. A quick QPR goal at the Etihad might en-liven the Red Devils but I am not counting on it.

QPR will lose to Man City but in my opinion, won't be relegated. That's because I don't see Bolton going to win at Stoke City. It's true that the hosts have nothing to play for and are finishing the season with a whimper. Bolton could draw this game, but it's hard to see them grab the 3 full points they need to stay up. The Wanderers are going down on Sunday after some memorable years at the top.

Arsenal will grab third place for guaranteed next season UCL football. They need a win at West Brom and I think they will get it. Their main opponents for that coveted spot is Tottenham who also look set to win at home against Fulham. It's just that Harry Redknapp's men will regret having gone on a mad winless streak of late, that eventually will cost them third place. Arsenal and Tottenham are both recommended as draw-no-bets.

All these matches will surely provide drama on Sunday, and in the end, the winners and losers will agree that they got what they deserved from their season's work.

Win: Man City
Draw-no-bet: Arsenal, Tottenham
