How can Leeds United avoid Premier League final-day relegation?

The final weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season will include a huge focus on the relegation battle.

Only one of Leeds United, Leicester City and Everton will be playing Premier League football next season as they fight for survival in a high-stakes finale.

Southampton have already been confirmed as relegated, with Steve Cooper's Nottingham Forest now safe.

Everton are battling to preserve their ever-present Premier League status, with 2016 champions Leicester suffering a disastrous slide, and Leeds parachuting in Sam Allardyce to save them in the run-in.

The fight for survival is so tight that goal difference could be the deciding factor if two teams are tied on points after 38 games played.

How can Leeds United avoid Premier League relegation

Leeds' final home game of the season pits them against Tottenham at Elland Road with the visitors already out of the race for the top six.

Jack Harrison's 90th-minute goal sealed a 2-1 final-day win at Brentford last season, to save Leeds from relegation, and they will need something similar this time.

Defeat or a draw against Tottenham would equal relegation, regardless of Everton and Leicester's results, as Leeds simply have to win.

Victory over Spurs would bring Allardyce's side on to 34 points, but if Everton beat Bournemouth at home, they will still be relegated.

A draw for Everton would bring goal difference into play and defeat to the Cherries would put Leeds above them by a point, providing the Elland Road club win.

Leicester are also in a position where they have to win to stand any chance of staying up, but they do have the best goal difference of the teams involved.
