Down at the bottom, Nottingham Forest secured their survival with a 1-0 victory over Arsenal, which crowned Manchester City as champions.
Leeds United’s defeat at West Ham ensured that the relegation battle will go down to the final day.
Everton secured what could be a crucial point with a 1-1 draw at Wolves on Saturday.
And Leicester City now they must win at Newcastle tonight or their hopes may be just about over.
With just six days to go before the climax of the campaign, supporters are anxiously awaiting to discover how their team finishes.
However, fans can now take a look at what is in store for them over the next 12 months after Ladbrokes released their predicted final Premier League table for next season.
They believe that the top two will remain unchanged – with City once again piping Arsenal to the title.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who look almost certain to miss out on the top four this term, are predicted to make a return to the Champions League with a third-placed finish with Manchester United making up the top four.

Newcastle can secure Champions League football later if they get at least a point against the Foxes, but the bookies do not fancy them to repeat that feat next year.
In fact, despite Chelsea’s dreadful campaign this term, they are predicted to finish ahead of the Magpies in fifth.
That outcome would still be a huge disappointment to the Blues should they miss out on the top four again.
Despite a new manager set to come in, Tottenham are only expected to finish seventh while Brighton make up the top eight.
Aston Villa are set for a ninth-placed finish while Brentford, even though they will be without suspended Ivan Toney for a large chunk of it, are also predicted to record a second-straight top half finish.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “We’re expecting another record-breaking summer of spending in the top-flight, but City will once again head into a Premier League campaign as odds-on favourites to top the table this time next year.”
He added: “Arsenal were huge outsiders to be anywhere near top spot some 10 months ago, but Mikel Arteta’s men will head into next campaign as joint-second favourites as things stand.”
