Mikel Arteta is a huge injury doubt following the midweek win over Wigan, whilst Steve Harper is set to play his final game between the sticks for the Toon.

Chelsea can still surrender third if they lose to Everton at Stamford Bridge, and captain John Terry is once again unavailable after missing the Europa League final victory. Ramires is also suspended for the Blues.

Sir Alex Ferguson will lead Manchester United for the 1500th and final time against West Brom. Anders Lindegaard is set to start in goal, whilst Wayne Rooney’s potential non-selection is sure to take the headlines.

Liverpool host relegated QPR, whilst Premier League runners-up Manchester City welcome Norwich City to the Etihad Stadium.
