The EPL season finishes this month with just three remaining fixtures and only three points separating the top three. Manchester United looked to have it in the bag until they lost 1-0 to Arsenal last Sunday, which has given Chelsea hope after they defeated Tottenham and moved to just three points away from the red devils. Now guess what the next fixture is? Yep...Manchester United vs Chelsea this Sunday 4:00pm live on Sky Sports 1. You literally couldn't write it! If Chelsea beat United the next two matches are going to be cup finals. After Chelsea, Man U face two teams fighting to keep out of relegation in Blackburn and Blackpool. Whilst Chelsea face Everton who are looking to just miss out on a European slot and Newcastle who currently reside 12th.
Arsenal can still mathematically win the title but it is looking very unlikely. They must concentrate on winning their remaining fixtures to prevent further disappointment with Manchester City jumping into 3rd. Arsenals two of three remaining fixtures are being shown on:

At the bottom of the league it's even tighter and undoubtedly will end in a last day relegation battle with West Ham and Wigan meeting on the last day of the season. With so much at stake in staying in the top flight, fans will have little nails left. West Ham United have had a troubled season and sit at the bottom of the table but just three points away from safety and face struggling Blackburn this weekend. Similar to the top of the table all three teams can still avoid relegation which is entertaining for a neutral and pure agony for the fans.
After 35 games three teams mathematically can still win the Barclay's Premier League or get relegated from it, with the 2010/11 season proving to be one of the most hard thought in years. Highlighting the current high standard of every team in the English Premier League.
