Victory over Burnley will leave Liverpool's Champions League hopes in their own hands
Victory over Burnley will leave Liverpool's Champions League hopes in their own hands

If drama is what you are looking for at the end of the Premier League season, turn your attention to Liverpool's clash with Burnley tonight.

There are six top-flight games on the menu but none have more riding on them than the Turf Moor clash, where the Reds can move into the top four with one game remaining.

Everton vs Wolves (6pm, Sky Sports)

Everton host Wolves in their final home game of the season looking to avoid a 10th Goodison Park defeat.

The Toffees’ woeful record on their own turf has cost them a real chance at finishing in the top four, with rock-bottom Sheffield United the latest side to leave with three points last Sunday. 

But Wolves’ recent record at Everton is poor and a 3-1 success in February 2019 is their only win in nine visits.

Yerry Mina (back) will return for the hosts but Raul Jimenez (head) will not be risked for the final two games of Wolves’ campaign.

Newcastle vs Sheffield United (6pm, Sky Sports)

Revenge is on Newcastle’s mind as they look to avenge their defeat at Sheffield United in January — when the Blades recorded their first win of a dismal campaign.

Steve Bruce’s Magpies have won three of their last six games to help avoid any relegation drama and have netted seven goals in their past two outings during a frenetic end to the campaign.

But the Blades will take confidence from their 1-0 victory at Everton, where Daniel Jebbison, 17, scored to give them just their second away win of the season.

Fabian Schar (suspended) joins six other Magpies on the sidelines, while none of the six sidelined first-teamers will return for the visitors.

Tottenham vs Aston Villa (6pm, Sky Sports)

All eyes will be on Harry Kane as he plays for the first time since it became clear he wants to leave Tottenham this summer.

Aston Villa are the visitors in a game Spurs need to win to keep their potential top-six finish in their own hands — but the focus is now on Kane and the reaction of the home crowd.

Spurs will be desperate to avoid finishing seventh and playing in the inaugural Europa Conference League, while Villa need six points from their final two games if they want to finish in the top half of the table.

Serge Aurier (groin) may be available for Spurs and Tyrone Mings (knee) is expected to be in Villa’s squad.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal (7pm, BT Sport)

Roy Hodgson will wave goodbye to the Selhurst Park faithful for the final time as Crystal Palace host London rivals Arsenal.

Hodgson, 73, is taking a step back from full-time football management after four years in charge of his boyhood club and will be desperate to sign off with a victory.

But the Gunners have won their last three games and Mikel Arteta needs that momentum to continue ahead of a crucial summer in his Arsenal tenure.

Luka Milivojevic and Patrick van Aanholt (both personal reasons) and Nathaniel Clyne (illness) could be involved for Palace, while Arsenal will be without the departing David Luiz (thigh).

Burnley vs Liverpool (8.15pm, Sky Sports)

Liverpool head to Turf Moor knowing victory over Burnley will leave Champions League qualification in their own hands ahead of Sunday’s finale against Palace.

Alisson Becker’s dramatic stoppage-time winner at West Brom kept their top-four dreams alive and three points tonight would move them above Leicester on goal difference heading into the final day.

While Burnley won 1-0 at Anfield in January, they have lost five of their last six home games with Liverpool and have not completed the double over them in 91 years.

Nick Pope (knee) and Dale Stephens (ankle) are touch and go for Burnley, while James Milner (unknown) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (ill) are the only two of the Reds’ 10 absentees who might feature.

West Brom vs West Ham (8.15pm, Sky Sports)

West Ham must beat West Brom and arrest a run of one win in five games if they are to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League alive.

Three points from their final two games should be enough to ensure they are playing European football next season — but the Hammers will be desperate to leapfrog Spurs and force their London rivals into the Europa Conference League.

The Championship-bound Baggies have only won twice in their past 16 meetings with West Ham and will still be reeling from Alisson’s winner at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

Neither side will welcome back any injured players, while Hammers star Declan Rice may struggle to play 90 minutes after returning from a spell on the sidelines at Brighton on Saturday.
