10 players to watch on the last day of the Premier League season

Ryan Giggs 2

Arsenal, Cardiff City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Southampton, Sunderland and West Ham United feature.

With one of the most exciting Premier League seasons drawing to a close this weekend, it appears everything is decided but the title race, and even that would take a remarkable final day twist for it to head somewhere other than the Etihad Stadium for Manchester City to lift their second crown in two years.

But there is still a chance of an upset. This weekend could see certain former players upsetting the apple cart, some are trying to impress on the last day of their loan spells, some could be on the end of a summer of speculation, and others may be having their swansong. Here are ten 10 players to look out for on the final day:

Ryan Giggs

Who knows what the future will hold with Ryan Giggs? Will he play beyond this season or does he feel it's time to call it a day? He played against Hull City in midweek so he might not feature against Southampton, but the United interim boss might give us a clue by how he comes across on the touchline.

Andy Carroll

Some are saying that Carroll is Liverpool's only hope to win the Premier League title. The man Liverpool signed for £35m, only to be sold to West Ham United looks as though he could be the biggest threat to Manchester City closing out the Premier League title. The Red half of Merseyside will be praying for Carroll, and the rest of the ex-Liverpool contingent in the Hammers' side to come up with an unlikely victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Yaya Toure

Some Manchester City fans will have feared the worst a few weeks ago when he limped off at Anfield against Liverpool, but since his return City have looked unstoppable, and you would think if they somehow conspire to lose the league title on Sunday then Toure must have had an off day. Don't be surprised if the Ivory Coast midfielder scores the clincher.

Adam Lallana

Lallana's future has been the subject of much speculation this season with several top clubs said to be interested in the Southampton midfielder, including this weekend's opponents Manchester United. Will it be the Englishman's last appearance in a Saints shirt?

Fabio Borini

Borini has spent this season on loan at Sunderland from Liverpool and the Mackems have taken the Italian to their hearts. He has come up with some big goals for them this season and will be keen to keep up his pretty good form to show those on Merseyside that he is worthy of being included in their first team plans for next season. He also comes up against one of his former clubs in Swansea City. 

Jordan Henderson

Henderson returns from suspension this weekend, and his three match ban could be one of the reasons the title has slipped from Liverpool's grasp. But the energetic and the very creative midfielder is back to try and help the Reds to a final day victory, then who knows what might happen elsewhere?

Loic Remy

Remy is another player whose future is a little uncertain as the man on loan at QPR has been linked with clubs other than Newcastle United. He will be keen to get on the scoresheet to prove himself yet again. It may be the perfect way to sign off his time in the North East if he isn't going to be on Tyneside next season. 

Steven Caulker

With Cardiff City already relegated there is nothing much to play for, but there has been talk of Caulker leaving the club for either Liverpool or Tottenham in recent weeks. They come up against Chelsea this weekend who could still finish the season as runners-up. If the defender wants a move to keep him in the Premier League, he has the ideal opponents to show his credentials against.

Eden Hazard

If Hazard plays for Chelsea this weekend it will make for fascinating viewing given the comments from Jose Mourinho lately, implying that the Belgian wasn't a team player. He was lively in the second half against Norwich City, but with an end of season game, one wonders how Hazard will play and whether it will be good enough for his boss.

Jack Wilshere

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said the midfielder could be available for this weekend's trip to Norwich City, who are practically relegated. Wilshere has been sidelined with a broken foot for a fairly lengthy period and a good run out this weekend could put him in contention for a place in the side's FA Cup final team against Hull City.
