After completing the penultimate round of Premier League games on Thursday, Sky Sports have made their TV selections for the final day, with three games scheduled to be broadcast live on Sunday.
The stakes are high as the 2021-22 season comes to a close, with the title and European places up for grabs and a relegation spot still to be found, with Watford and Norwich already down.
In a repeat of the 2018/19 season, leaders Manchester City have a game to go over Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola’s side host Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at the Etihad, while Jurgen Klopp’s four-time pursuers welcome Wolves to Anfield.
At the other end of the table, Leeds and Burnley are tied on 35 points, but the Clarets are 17th on goal difference.
Leeds meet Brentford in west London in the final game, while Burnley take on Newcastle at Turf Moor.
Three of the Premier League’s four Champions League places have already been awarded to City, Liverpool and Chelsea, with fourth and final place between north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal.
What matches are televised live in the UK?

Coverage for each live game begins at 2:30 p.m. Any game can be streamed on NowTV.
Highlights of all 10 games are shown game of the day on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 10.30pm.
Spurs are two points clear of their clash with already relegated Norwich City at Carrow Road and Arsenal host Everton in the Emirates, fresh from the Toffees’ mid-week relegation escape.
One from Spurs or Arsenal will join Manchester United or West Ham in the Europa League. United are currently sixth and two points ahead of West Ham, securing a place in the competition they won by beating Crystal Palace in 2017.
However, should they not win, West Ham could edge them down to sixth with an away win at Brighton as they hold a 10-goal lead over Ralf Rangnick’s side.
Both games of the title chasers will be broadcast live.
Manchester City were spooked by West Ham at the London Stadium last weekend but bounced back from a 2-0 deficit at half-time to earn a 2-2 draw. Riyad Mahrez had an opportunity to complete the comeback but saw a late penalty saved by Lukasz Fabianski.
Although that game highlighted City’s defensive vulnerability with Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias and John Stones all unavailable through injury, they are expected to deliver the result they need considering they have been at it this season have won 14 of their 18 league games at Etihad.

Liverpool will hope their former captain Gerrard can do them a favor by scoring an unlikely away win. It’s a tough challenge though as Villa have been in so-so form, winning just two of their last 10 league games.
The Reds also need to make sure they keep their end of the bargain by beating Wolves and like City these are strong favourites. At one point, Wolves were fighting for a spot in the top four, but their form has fallen off the cliff, as evidenced by a six-game winless streak.
The other game, shown live in the UK, involves Leeds, who are looking to win at Brentford to give themselves the best possible chance of staying in the Premier League.
Leeds are level on points with Burnley but 20 goals behind. If Burnley wins Leeds are as good as lost but better his result and they will survive.
