All eyes fall on the Northeast of England as Hull and Newcastle fight to avoid the final relegation spot.

The final day drama in the English Premier League has boiled down to two teams trying to beat the drop, with Chelsea already deemed league winners and the rest of the top four set in stone. A win for Newcastle against West Ham keeps the club in the Premier League, but anything less could hand a lifeline to Hull against Manchester United.

The Italian Serie A has a few more rounds to go, with AC Milan’s game against Torino highlighting the action there.

Back in North America, Liga MX playoffs are down to the second legs of the semifinals. Chivas host Santos Laguna after a scoreless first leg, while Pachuca holds a 2-0 advantage while visiting Queretaro.

The New York Red Bulls’ meeting with Eastern Conference foes the Philadelphia Union kicks off the MLS national coverage. The evening wraps up with San Jose Earthquakes hosting Orlando City.

  2. The end of this premier league season has been so anticlimactic that it has been uninteresting for weeks. Even the relegation race has not produced any drama. Playoffs would add a little spice to what has been a forgone conclusion for a while.

  3. Wifey… “do they (Stoke) have an extra player on the field?”.

    Shameful display in Gerrard’s final LFC game.

    • He has been consistently better than the club he plays for, so I think a change might be good. There are some EPL teams he could walk in and start for day one. And maybe even a move to a different league would be in the books.

    • I could understand Guzan on the bench if Villa were going to play Given in the FA Cup final and wanted to let the team play together for a couple weeks. But Guzan on the bench, Given not in the team and Steer starting – makes no sense. Guzan must have really done something to anger the new manager. I can’t imagine one bad pass against Man City, who they weren’t going to beat anyway, could result in guzan being shipped out.

  4. Sterling on the bench because of the drama around his contract talks and agent. Will LFC see a wholesale reboot of the squad this summer? Assuming Johnson, Lucas, Balotelli are gone in addition to Stevie G. Possibly Toure, Markovic too.

    So many needs for this squad to get back into the BPL top 4 and maintain that level. A consistent forward line partner for Sterling (if he stays) and Philippe, a new D mid with pace, new centerback pairing (IMO opinion Lovren and Skrtel do not mesh)…
