EVERTON VS NORWICH CITY

Norwich were relegated after one season back in the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday night, when Sunderland won their game in hand, over Everton. Everton have won just one of their last eight league games and, on Wednesday, were beaten 3-0 at Sunderland, which puts further pressure on Roberto Martinez, the Everton manager.

MAN UNITED VS BOURNEMOUTH

Manchester United suffered a blow to their hopes of finishing in a top-four place and qualify for a Champions League place in the 2016-17 campaign on Monday night when they lost 3-2 to West Ham in the final ever game at the Boleyn Ground. United need City to lose at Swansea and beat Bournemouth to finish fourth.

SOUTHAMPTON VS CRYSTAL PALACE

Despite winning 2-1 at Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday, Southampton dropped to seventh in the Barclays Premier League following West Ham United's dramatic 3-2 win over Manchester United on Monday in the last ever game at the Boleyn Ground. Crystal Palace, though, have much to play for; next Saturday they play Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

STOKE CITY VS

WEST HAM

West Ham are bidding to finish sixth and claim a place in next season's Europa League after three wins from their last four league games. But if Stoke win and Chelsea lose at home to Leicester, the Potters can equal their best ever finish in the Premier League of ninth.

WATFORD VS SUNDERLAND

Sunderland sealed their Premier League place and at the same time relegated Norwich City and local rivals Newcastle United with a comprehensive victory over Everton on Wednesday night. A draw is the most probable result; Watford have entertained Sunderland 17 times in total, winning five and losing four, while eight have been stalemates.

WEST BROM VS LIVERPOOL

Liverpool remain eighth in the Premier League and are within three points of sixth-placed West Ham with a game left. The last two league meetings between these teams ended in draws, but in nine Premier League visits, Liverpool have won five and lost just two. Albion have gone eight league games without a win, taking just three points from a possible 24.
