The Premier League season concludes on Sunday with all 10 matches kicking off at the same time and plenty still at stake.

The title has been wrapped up by Manchester City, Manchester United are certain of second place, while the bottom three teams have also already been determined.

However, Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester City are battling it out for the two remaining Champions League spots as they face Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Tottenham respectively.

There are also the Europa League and Europa Conference League berths to be sorted on a bumper day of football.

If you’re looking for some extra drama, why not give our Opta-powered quiz a go? You’ll find the answers at the bottom of the page…

1. Nicolas Pepe is looking to score in three successive games in all competitions for the first time in his Arsenal career. Can you name the only Arsenal player to be directly involved in more goals than the Ivorian’s 19 (14 goals, 5 assists) this season?

2. Chelsea have lost their last league game in just one of the previous nine campaigns. Which side did the Blues go down 3-0 to on the final day of the 2017-18 season?
