Golden awards, fight for Europe and records mean there is something to play for in all 10 matches

The 2020/21 Premier League season concludes on Sunday with plenty still at stake for teams and players throughout the table. 

Indeed, there is something to play for in every match.

Arsenal are in contention for a UEFA Europa Conference League spot, but, because of their inferior goal difference to Tottenham Hotspur, they must beat Brighton & Hove Albion and hope Spurs and Everton fail to win their respective trips to Leicester City and Manchester City.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is aiming to become the first Arsenal player to score on the final day in four consecutive PL seasons.

Chelsea's top-four fate is in their own hands, but if they fail to win at Aston Villa they could drop out of a UEFA Champions League qualification place if results go against them. 

The Blues have a poor record against Villa in four final-day matches, losing three times and drawing once. 

Olivier Giroud has scored in seven consecutive matches against Villa and could become only the second player in PL history to find the net in eight in a row against an opponent, after Robin van Persie against Stoke City.

Joe Willock has the record of a Newcastle United legend in his sights. If the midfielder gets a goal, Willock will match Premier League Hall of Fame inductee Alan Shearer's club record of scoring in seven PL appearances in a row.

Leeds United hopes of UEFA Europa Conference League qualification rely upon them winning on Sunday and the three teams above them all losing, while achieving a goal-difference swing of 15 to Spurs.

Victory would also take them to 59 points, the highest tally for a promoted side since Ipswich Town's 66 in 2000/01.

After spending a season-high 242 days in the top four, Leicester could repeat last season's heartbreak and finish out of the UEFA Champions League qualification places if they do not beat Spurs.

They must hope for a win and a favour from Villa against Chelsea or Crystal Palace at Liverpool.  

Spurs can grab a UEFA Europa League spot if they win and West Ham United lose to Southampton.

Harry Kane is looking to be only the third player to finish a PL season with both the most goals and assists. 

He is level on 22 goals with Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot race and has 13 assists, one clear of Bruno Fernandes, in the running for the Playmaker award. Two goals on Sunday would also make Kane the joint-highest scorer in final-day matches, equalling the nine of Andrew Cole and Les Ferdinand.

Liverpool are aiming for a win that would guarantee them a top-four place, having returned there in midweek.

Salah's chase of a third Golden Boot continues as he faces a Palace team against whom he has scored five times in his last four meetings. He could be only the third player to win the Golden Boot in three consecutive campaigns, after inaugural Hall of Fame inductees Shearer and Thierry Henry.

Sadio Mane has a shot at scoring in an eighth consecutive match against Palace to match Van Persie's competition record.

Ahead of lifting the Premier League Trophy, Kevin De Bruyne is bidding for a third Playmaker award in four seasons, trailing Kane by two assists.

If Sergio Aguero is on the scoresheet in his final appearance for City, he would match the mark for most goals scored with one club, held by Wayne Rooney, with 183 for Manchester United.

Pep Guardiola can become the manager with the outright best record on the Premier League's final day. His 100 per cent record of four wins out of four is level with Chris Coleman.

Everton will be hoping to overtake Spurs for a UEFA Europa Conference League place. A win and other results going their way mean they could even finish in sixth, but they would also need a goal-difference swing of eight.

Sheffield United still have two incentives for their final Premier League match.

Defeat would make them the first Premier League team to lose 30 matches in a season, while going without a goal would make them the first top-flight side to fail to score at least 20 times in a campaign.

West Ham need just a point to secure sixth for only the second time in the Premier League, earning them a place in the UEFA Europa League.

Michail Antonio is only one behind Paolo Di Canio's club-record total of 47 Premier League goals.

Man Utd are aiming to become only the third Premier League team to go unbeaten away from home in a season, after the Arsenal sides of 2001/02 and 2003/04.

Fernandes will hope to make up a deficit of one assist to Kane for the Playmaker award.
