Manchester United vs Bournemouth - Sky Sports 1 - Sunday 15th May 2016

The Red Devils come into this fixture on the back of a 3-2 loss away against West Ham on Tuesday evening and that result has cost United dearly in their pursuit of Champions League football and they need to win here and hope Manchester City lose against Swansea.

United's form in the Premier League this season has been poor, they have won 18 matches this season but their poor form prior to the festive season has cost them a league title and potentially their place at Europe's top table.

It is incredible to think that United could finish as low as 7th providing that Bournemouth, Southampton and West Ham were all to win and that would be the final nail in the coffin of Louis Van Gaal who has had a poor season in charge.

The Jose Mourinho rumours are refusing to go away but he will hoping that United miraculously qualify for the Champions League if he is to take charge. United will be looking for their 19th win in 38 matches this season and their 12th win at home.

United remain the favourites in this fixture and are at 4/11 with striker Marcus Rashford at 100/30 to score first.

 

Bournemouth Striker Callum Wilson

The Cherries come into this match on the back of an drab result last weekend in the Premier League following their 1-1 draw against West Brom.

This has been an excellent season for Bournemouth, they have won 11 matches this season and they have played some excellent football at times but they have fallen just short of their usual high standards and once safety was confirmed they immediately dropped off.

They will be looking forward to the challenge of a second successive season in England's top flight and providing they keep the existing manager and players have a fantastic chance of staying up and progress to establish themselves as a Premier League regular.

Bournemouth have an poor record in their last six matches and they will want to win their remaining match to give their supporters one last final thing to cheer for in what has been an incredibly successful season.

They will be looking for their 12th win in 38 games this season and are looking to secure just their 7th away win of the campaign.

Bournemouth are the underdogs at 7/1 with Callum Wilson the first to score at 10/1.

Swansea vs Manchester City - Sunday 15th May 2016 - 15:00

Swansea
Today's fixture is at the Liberty Stadium

The Swans come into this fixture on the back of an excellent 4-1 win away against West Ham last weekend and that result was probably their best result of the season and has ensured that manager Francesco Guidolin was properly rewarded with a two year contract as Head Coach.

Swansea have a mixed record in their last six matches, they have won three of their last six against West Ham, Liverpool and Chelsea and also managed to draw against Stoke, with defeats coming against Newcastle and Leicester.

They will be looking to end the season on a high and with a few more summer signings they will look to challenge for the top seven next season and bring European football back to the Liberty stadium.

Swansea will be looking for their 13th win in 38 matches this season and their 9th win at home.

Swansea are underdogs in this match and are 19/4 on to win with Bafetimbi Gomis the first to score at 15/2.

Aguero
Aguero is still the main man for City

Manchester City come into this match on the back of a 2-2 draw against Arsenal last weekend, knowing that a win in this final fixture will guarantee a top four finish in Manuel Pellegrini's last season.

This has been a poor season for Man City in the Premier League, they have won 19 matches this season and they have played some excellent football at times but where Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have failed to turn in decent performances the league was there for the taking for Manchester City. Especially when you consider the riches and players at their disposal.

They are just ahead of struggling city rivals Manchester United this season and a win here will be enough to keep Manchester United below them in 5th position. This result will be excellent for the club as that means that in Pep Guardiola's first season in charge they are in Europe's elite competition and it keeps bitter rivals United relegated to the Europa League.

They will be keen to give Manuel Pellegrini an incredible send off and on a winning note, it's no more than the Chilean deserves given his excellent haul of trophies during his three years, having won the Premier League, the League Cup and seen the club progress to the Champions League Semi Finals.

They will be looking for their 20th win in 38 games this season and are looking to secure their 8th away win of the campaign.

They are the favourites in this tie and to secure the win they are 8/15 with Sergio Aguero at 3/1.

Chelsea vs Leicester - Sunday 15th May 2016 - 15:00

Diego Costa is the bookies favourite to score first
Diego Costa is the bookies favourite to score first

The Blues come into this fixture on the back of a 1-1 draw away against Liverpool on Wednesday evening and they will be looking to better that result with a home win against Leicester who have had an incredible season.

Chelsea's form in the Premier League this season has been poor, they have won 12 matches this season but their decline has been remarkable and coincided with Leicester's rapid rise. It is incredible to think that the former Premier League Champions will end the season in 9th position at best.

Chelsea come into this fixture in poor form having lost three of their last six matches. Guus Hiddink went from mid December until April without losing a fixture in the Premier League and having lost his first they have gone back to old and bad habits this season but have shown a bit more fight.

Antonio Conte will have one huge job on his hands come the start of next season. Chelsea will be looking for their 13th win in 38 matches this season and just their 6th win at home.

Chelsea remain favourites given the home fixture and are at 5/4 with Diego Costa at 4/1 to score first.

Ranieri
Title Winning Manager Claudio Ranieri

The Foxes come into this match in incredible form in the Premier League following their 3-1 win against Leicester last weekend.

This has been a fairytale season for Leicester, they have won an unbelievable 23 matches this season and they have been one of the greatest sides in the current Premier League era. In a plot twist they play last seasons Champions Chelsea and the club that Ranieri was sacked from back in 2004, making way for Jose Mourinho.

He was told repeatedly he would never win the league and he returns 12 years later due to receive a guard of honour and with his league winners medal intact.

They will be looking forward to the Champions League next year, mixing it with the top sides in Europe and with the Tinkerman at the helm and the retaining of crucial players there is no reason they can't cause a similar upset as they did this season.

Leicester do have an excellent record in their last six matches and they will want to win their remaining match to give their supporters something further to cheer. They have won four matches and drawn two and they have lost an incredible three matches this season, that is an incredible achievement and one they can be very proud of.

They will be looking for their 24th win in 38 games this season and are looking to secure just their 12th away win of the campaign.

Leicester remain underdogs despite winning the league so emphatically and are at 2/1 and Jamie Vardy is the favourite to score first at 3/1.
