It will now go down to the final day of the Premier League season Sunday to determine whether it is Alex Iwobi and Everton or Wilfred Ndidi and Leicester City who will be relegated.
Everton are two points clear of relegation on 33 points from 37 games, while both Leicester City and Leeds are sucked in the drop zone with 31 points each.
Leicester City though enjoy a superior goals difference than Leeds.
Everton will be home to Bournemouth, Leicester welcome West Ham and Leeds will hope to beat Spurs in front of their fans Sunday evening.
Ndidi could be a doubt for Sunday’s showdown after injury forced him out in Monday night’s gutsy draw at Newcastle United, while compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho is fighting to be fit for this final battle.
Home wins for the three clubs will mean, Leicester City and Leeds drop down to the English Championship and Everton stage another Great Escape from relegation.
But should Everton fail to win, and Leicester or Leeds do, it will be ‘The Toffees’ who will be relegated.
Nottingham Forest are already safe thanks to the first-half goal by Taiwo Awoniyi that fell Arsenal Saturday in front of a rocking City Ground.
