With only 6 matches left to be played, it's safe to say that the League is heading to its showdown with a lot of dramas expected to unfold.

As it stands now, nothing has been confirmed in the league except for Sheffield United who officially has been relegated to the Championship league.

Everything is still open for teams to claim with Manchester United still hopeful of winning the Premier League title despite Manchester City's huge lead against them. Manchester City is currently on top of the Premier League with 11 points ahead of Man United and only needs to win 3 out of their last 5 matches to officially claim the league title.

On the other hand, the top four race is getting hotter with five teams fighting for the remaining 2 European slots with Manchester United and Manchester City officially confirmed for next season Champions League competition.
