Stan Collymore predicts final day madness in Premier League as Leeds take on Brentford & Burnley welcome Newcastle
Stan Collymore has predicted that Leeds United will stay in the Premier League on the final day of the season on Sunday [22 May] as they travel to take on Brentford.
The Whites need to better Burnley’s result against Newcastle to avoid relegation to the Championship, and have been backed to pick up a point in a 2-2 draw in London.
Collymore has then backed the crazy-rich Magpies to smash Burnley at Turf Moor 3-1, meaning Leeds would stay up by the skin of their teeth later today.
Writing in his latest column for the Sunday People, as shared on Press Reader, Collymore made the big prediction for the final day around the grounds.
“One of the most entertaining games of the games of the day but no winners,” he said about Leeds. “A point could be enough to save Leeds, though.”
Moving over the Turf Moor, Collymore didn’t hold out much hope though: “The Magpies will bury the Clarets and potentially send them down.”
It has all come down to this.
Leeds know that they have to better Burnley’s result to stay in the Premier League, but they need to make sure they concentrate on themselves first against Brentford.
Concentrating too much on what our rivals are doing will take away from the fact that we have to take a positive result from London this afternoon.
Aston Villa didn’t do us any favours on Thursday evening, so hopefully, Eddie Howe can get a different tune from his side this afternoon, although Burnley do have home advantage.
Jesse Marsch will be keeping an eye on what is happening at Burnley, as if they are losing late on and Leeds are still drawing, he may aim to shut up shop to get a point.
This is going to be an afternoon full of twists and turns, and we have every last part of our body crossed that we are still a Premier League club when that full-time whistle blows.
