Liverpool will continue their push for a top four finish this Saturday when they take on Aston Villa at Anfield. Their last home clash of the season will mark their penultimate performance before the final showdown against Southampton at St Mary’s on May 28th.

The Reds must win both of their remaining fixtures to be in with the best possible chance to secure Champions League football. Although, banking six points may still not be enough.

If both of Liverpool’s top four rivals win their three games, they will qualify for the Champions League next campaign. Liverpool will be hoping at least one team slips up at some point though, as they may be able to sneak their way into the top four at the final hurdle.

Here’s a look at Man United and Newcastle’s remaining fixtures and when they both play their respective games in-hand.

Erik ten Hag and his men will travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on Bournemouth this Saturday. They will then play their game in-hand against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Thursday, May 25th, before rounding off their season at home against Fulham.

Newcastle are currently third in the Premier League table, but only ahead of Man United by goal difference. Their game in-hand will be played on Thursday, May 18th against Brighton and Hove Albion before returning to action on Monday to host relegation candidates Leicester City. Newcastle’s final game of the season is away at Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.
