5pm, Saturday April 30th. That’s nearly it now for this season’s Premiership. Liverpool and Everton both dropped points today – Everton losing at Fulham 2-0, Liverpool only managing a draw at home to Middlesborough. Bolton play this evening against Chelsea.
Everton are on 58 points and can get a maximum of 67. Liverpool are on 55 and can get at most 61 points and Bolton go into their Chelsea fixture on 54 points, with a maximum of 63 available to them.
One more win for Everton means that Liverpool could then only overtake them on goal difference – currently Liverpool’s is superior at +12 to Everton’s +5.
Bolton and Everton meet on the last day of the season. If Bolton win against Champions-elect Chelsea later tonight they will move ahead of Liverpool by 2 points and would be one point behind Everton. For Bolton to then ensure they stay above Liverpool at the end of the season they would need to take six points from both their remaining games. A win and a draw could leave them level on points with Liverpool (assuming Liverpool manage to win their last two games) – Bolton’s goal difference is currently +6 to Liverpool’s +12.
