If Southampton win...
West Brom would be relegated.
Southampton will move to 16th on goal difference, above Huddersfield. They can then be sure of safety by avoiding defeat against Manchester City on Sunday.
Swansea would remain in the relegation zone and need to beat Stoke in their final game - while Huddersfield or Southampton slip up - to stay up.

If it's a draw...

Southampton would stay 17th. They would then stay up if they beat Manchester City or match Swansea's result on the final day.
Swansea would go down if they lose on the final day, but stay up if they better Southampton's result.
West Brom would need to win their final game, and hope both Southampton and Swansea lose.

If Swansea win...

West Brom would be relegated.
The Swans would move to 16th and would be sure of safety by avoiding defeat against Stoke on Sunday.
Southampton would drop into the relegation zone and would need to beat Manchester City on the final day while hoping Huddersfield or Swansea slip up.

Just looking at the saints win odds 2.4. I really hope so, but that seems a bit short - this is gonna be bloody close!

Jeeezz what a nervy night this is gonna be!
If you've got emotional/fan skin in that game, it sure is. In terms of quality of the two sides lining up, I would say, it's priced about right. Given that all likely come down to who has the biggest balls and keeps cool at key moments, who bloody well knows. Anybody's guess, I'd say.

I tell you who looks a bit short to me though. PSG trading at 1.04, and liable to hit 1.03 by kickoff. Might just be priced right for fulltime, and it's as close to David vs Goliat in a football match of big importance as you'll ever see, but it's a good opportunity for the first part of the match. I'll freeley admit to knowing nothing about Les Herbiers. But there can be no doubt, they will be very, very compact and will leave absolutely everything on the field in what will likely be the only game of the magnitude in their careers. Toss in that PSG will likely take the win as a given and that they haven't exactly been firing as usual since going out of the CL. They'll probably end up with a big win, but the first goal might just be a bit of time coming.

They were pushing saints hard - only a tiny bit of respite for us in the last few mins of the half

Ok Saints. For the first time of the season you need to learn that the ball needs to enter the other teams goal and don’t concede. Got it! ⚽️

Have you all sobered up yet 8-) What a difference a goal makes. Did you all have that moment when you woke up this morning and remembered you don't have to worry anymore?

Some loose change on @140 must seem tempting, enough to drown your sorrows several times if the worst happens. I had £1 on cpfc at about 500, just in case. Never been so happy to lose a bet. :)

Chelsea look a good lay @ 1.23

Huddersfield desperately need a point and if they played like they did against City then they could even win this

No brainer at that price for an overrated Chelsea side

Hardly a no brainer, imho.

Chelsea:
- beat them 3-1 in the reverse fixture this seson
- badly need points to qualify for next year's Champions League
- won their 5 last games in all competitions

I say dutch the following correct scores: 2-0, 3-0, 3-1. It pays £1.90 for every £1 staked.
