BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson has revealed his predictions for the final game of the season in the Premier League.

From Lawrenson’s prediction, Liverpool will seal the remaining Champions League spot, as he predicted a 2-0 win for Liverpool against Brighton and also predicted Chelsea will beat Newcastle by the same scoreline.

On the Chelsea game, Lawrenson said: “Chelsea have underachieved this season and I cannot see Antonio Conte being in charge of the Blues at the start of the next campaign.

“Unfortunately for Newcastle fans, it is not clear whether Rafa Benitez will still be their manager by then either.

“Benitez has done a great job and he will be happy if he gets some money to spend in the transfer market, so it is a no-brainer to try to keep him, surely.

“Newcastle have not picked up another point since they passed the 40-point mark a few weeks ago. They have lost four games in a row, but that doesn’t matter because it is job done – they are safe.

“I don’t see the Magpies returning to winning ways on Sunday, either. It would be just like Chelsea to put in a silky performance this week, but they have not done that often enough this season.”
