Premier League final day LIVE! West Ham and Tottenham battle for sixth

West Ham are looking to end a stellar season on a high by beat rivals Tottenham to sixth place and qualifying for Europa League football.

A valiant effort to finish in the top four ended earlier in May but any European football next season must be viewed as a hugely impressive achievement, just a year on from a relegation battle and in the midst of a Premier League season like no other.

Southampton are the visitors today as Hammers fans return to the London Stadium to cheer on a first ever top-six finish in the Premier League, though Spurs are lying in wait for any slip-up.

A point is enough for West Ham, while Tottenham are at Champions League-chasing Leicester needing the Hammers to lose and to beat the FA Cup winners.

Further down the table, a Europa Conference League spot is not out of the question for either Everton or Arsenal.

Permutations

West Ham took a giant step towards the Europa League on Wednesday as they won 3-1 at West Brom, and now need just a point to confirm sixth place – and they may not even need that should results elsewhere fall in their favour.

A 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa leaves Spurs with it all to do – and Arsenal and Everton both remain in contention for European football, which should make for a thrilling final round of games.

Spurs must beat Champions League-chasing Leicester and hope West Ham slip up to finish fourth, while Everton must beat thrash Man City and hope West Ham get thumped to finish sixth, while just a Spurs draw will see them finish seventh.
