Premier League:

Hull, Burnley, Portsmouth - relegated

Chelsea will win the league if they at least match Manchester United's result on the final day.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham have qualified for the Champions League.

Manchester City, Aston Villa and Liverpool have qualified for the Europa League. If Fulham win this season's Europa Cup they would be invited back as holders.

The top three national associations in UEFA's Fair Play League are given an extra Europa League place and the last table showed England in third place. The latest standings show Arsenal top followed by Tottenham, Fulham, Manchester United, Chelsea and Burnley.


Newcastle United - champions

West Bromwich Albion - promoted

Nottingham Forest, Cardiff City, Leicester City, Blackpool - play-offs

Plymouth Argyle, Peterborough United, Sheffield Wednesday - relegated

League One:

Norwich City - champions

Stockport County, Southend United, Wycombe Wanderers - relegated

A win for Leeds at home to Bristol Rovers would confirm their promotion but anything less than a win would open the door for four sides. Millwall host Swindon Town with both sides just a point behind Leeds, while Charlton travel to Oldham with two points separating them and Leeds. Sixth placed Huddersfield travel to Exeter knowing that they need to win by four goals or more and hope none of the other teams above them win. All five teams are guaranteed at least a play-off place

Tranmere Rovers currently occupy the final relegation place and travel to Stockport on the final day knowing they just need to better Exeter's result at home to Huddersfield. Gillingham will go down if they lose to Wycombe and both Tranmere and Exeter win.

League Two:

Notts County - champions

Rochdale, Bournemouth - promoted

Rotherham United, Aldershot Town - play-offs

Darlington - relegated

Morecambe, Dagenham & Redbridge, Bury, Port Vale, Chesterfield and Northampton Town will contest the final two play-off places.

Grimsby must beat Burton Albion to avoid relegation and hope Barnet lose to Rochdale.

Cheltenham could still go down if both Grimsby and Barnet win and they lose to Accrington Stanley at home and there is a six-goal swing with the Mariners.

Blue Square Premier:

Stevenage Borough - promoted as champions

Oxford United will play York City in the play-off final on May 16.
