The 2021-22 Premier League campaign reaches its conclusion this weekend – and there is still plenty to be decided at both ends of the division.

One point separates leaders Manchester City and Liverpool at the summit, while Leeds United and Burnley are battling to avoid the one remaining relegation spot.

The fourth and final Champions League qualification place is also up for grabs, with Tottenham two points better off than fierce rivals Arsenal in the battle for fourth.

Manchester United are still not assured of a Europa League place, meanwhile, as seventh-placed West Ham sit just two points behind in a Europa Conference League berth.

Ahead of an action-packed final day of the season, test your top-flight knowledge with our Opta-powered quiz. You’ll find the answers at the bottom.

1. Chelsea hold the record for the biggest victory on the final day of a Premier League season. Can you name the side they beat 8-0 at Stamford Bridge in 2009-10?

2. Bukayo Saka will become the second-youngest player (20 years, 259 days) to play every match for Arsenal in a single Premier League campaign should he feature against Everton. Who is the youngest player to have been used in every game for the Gunners in a single season?

3. Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has scored six goals on the final day of the Premier League season. Who is the only active player in the division to have scored more?

4. Liverpool are unbeaten in all six of their closing day league games under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds’ most recent defeat on matchday 38 came against Stoke City in 2014-15, in what was Steven Gerrard’s final game for the club, but what was the scoreline that day?

5. Should Tottenham hold off Arsenal, Antonio Conte will become the fifth manager to finish in the top four of the Premier League with two different clubs. Kenny Dalglish, Rafael Benitez, Jose Mourinho and which other manager have previously achieved that feat?

Answers:
