In a season full of surprises could we see one more?

It has been, arguably, the most exciting Premier League season in the history of the competition, a season full of shocks and surprises at both ends of the table and as we come to the final day should we expect anything less than a thrilling and entertaining end.

With the relegation places all but sealed unless Norwich can score 17 goals and the top 4 finalised we are left only with the battle for the title between Manchester City and Liverpool.

After seemingly blowing their title chances Liverpool will be hoping for West Ham to do them a favour and go to the Etihad and win, something that even the most optimistic Liverpool fan would struggle to foresee.

However with rumours circulating that Sam Allardyce is destined to be sacked after the match it would be all the more motivation for him to go out with a bang. Comments made by Allardyce during the week stating “from a personal point of view I’d like to see Gerrard win it” are also sure to instil hope in the hearts of all of Liverpool.

Man City have been inconsistent and prone to shock results this season, Sunderland being an example of this, so with all the pressure in the world on their shoulders knowing anything but a defeat will see them crowned champions could they crumble.

Liverpool themselves are home to Newcastle and will expect a routine victory to keep any hopes of being crowned Premier League champions for the first time since its formation.

City go into the game with a fully fit squad according to Manuel Pellegrini and are massive favourites to secure the title for the second time in three years but in a season full of shocks and surprises could former Liverpool men Downing and Carroll have the final say and send the title to Merseyside?

Whatever happens Sunday is sure to be an exciting finish to the season and either team would undoubtedly be worthy winners of what has been a remarkable season.
