Each season, the final day of the Premier League season (or any soccer season) is met with drama and intrigue.
All 20 teams will play at 10 a.m. ET on Sunday, May 13, and every single game will be on a network channel. Only Schmeichel picked Spurs to finish in the top four.

It is a day for celebration on the blue side of Manchester – though Guardiola will most likely already be preparing for his side’s title defence next season.
“It’s incredible, 50 (points) at home and 50 away”, Guardiola, who went one better than when he oversaw Barcelona’s 99-point La Liga-winning campaign in 2009-10.
In Carrick’s time with United, he won 12 major trophies, and 18 total including F.A. Community Shields.
