Premier League confirms relegation focus with TV selections on final day


The Premier League has confirmed the television coverage for the final day of the 2022/23 season on Sunday.

The final games of a long and arduous top flight campaign are among us, with a lot of drama at the top of the table already sorted out. A lot of focus will be on the relegation battle, with two of Everton, Leeds and Leicester due to suffer the drop.

Here’s where the Sky Sports and BT Sport cameras will be on the final day of the season.

With the Premier League title race and the Champions League qualification spots all but wrapped up, Sky Sports and BT Sport have decided to focus on Sunday’s relegation battle with their pick of matches.

Southampton are already confirmed as relegated but two of Everton, Leeds and Leicester still need to join them on what will be an extremely nervy day for supporters.

All three sides are at home and will welcome TV cameras to capture the drama. Everton vs Bournemouth and Leicester vs West Ham will be shown on Sky Sports, while Leeds vs Tottenham will be on BT Sport.

CURRENT PREMIER LEAGUE TABLE, TOP SCORERS & UPCOMING FIXTURES

A victory for Sean Dyche’s side on the final day will secure Everton’s Premier League status no matter what else happens at Leicester and Leeds. Should they lose and one of Leeds or Leicester win, the Toffees will go down.

A draw would leave Everton on 34 points. A Leicester win and Leeds failing to earn three points would see Leeds go down in 19th with Everton 18th. Should Everton draw, Leeds win and Leicester don’t win, the Foxes would go down in 19th and 18th would be decided by goal difference. United would need to win by three goals to stay up.

In short, Everton have to win their own game or hope one of Leicester or Leeds do not to stay up. They’re in the driving seat ahead of Leicester, who need to beat West Ham and hope Everton don’t win. Leeds must beat Tottenham, need Everton to lose and Leicester not to win to stay up, or to win by three goals with an Everton draw.
