Premier League decide on unusual final-day scenario involving Man City and Arsenal that has only happened once

Premier League decide on unusual final-day scenario involving Man City and Arsenal that has only happened once

This will create something of a dilemma for fans.

Premier League fans have been left surprised by a final-day decision that has only happened once before in the history of the division.

Manchester City and Arsenal will do battle for the Premier League title on Sunday, with City two points clear of their rivals.

Pep Guardiola's side face West Ham at home, while the Gunners host Everton as the title race goes down to the wire.

While City are odds-on favourites to lift the trophy for the fourth consecutive time, neutral fans will be hoping for plenty of drama on the final day of the season.

Traditionally, all the major games from the final day of the Premier League season would be televised by Sky Sports, with the broadcaster cutting to non-televised games if significant goals or other moments occurred.

That changed for the first time last year, with BT Sport (now TNT Sports) showing live coverage of Leeds against Tottenham. The Whites had a slim chance of staying up before the game kicked off, and defeat to Spurs meant they returned to the second tier of English football.

But the broadcasters didn't share matches in relation to the upper echelons of the table, with City having been crowned champions ahead of Arsenal before the final game of the season.

However, this time around, their respective matches will be televised by different broadcasters.

Sky were given first pick of the fixtures, and decided they would host City's home clash against West Ham on the final day.

TNT took Arsenal versus Everton instead - meaning that the broadcaster could announce the Premier League title winners for the first time since they began coverage of Premier League fixtures.

At this stage, it appears that Sky or BT will not be able to cut to footage of each others' games during the live broadcast in the case of notable incidents - although this is yet to be publicly announced. SPORTbible have contacted both broadcasters and the Premier League for clarification.
