Sheff Utd's relegation to the Championship would be confirmed on Saturday if they lose to Newcastle United.

If the Blades are defeated, they would still be on 16 points, 10 points behind Forest, and with only three matches and nine points to play for, confirming their relegation.

If Sheff Utd draw against Newcastle then they would also be relegated if Burnley draw or win against Manchester United.

That is because Burnley face Nottingham Forest on the final day of the season, and both teams cannot lose the match. One of them would be guaranteed to reach 27 points, exceeding Sheff Utd's best possible total of 26.

If Sheff Utd beat Newcastle, their relegation would not be confirmed on Saturday. But it could be rubber-stamped on Sunday if Forest match or better their result in Newcastle when they host Manchester City
