Just before we head into our last Premier League fixtures of the season, the main questions at the start of every season have now been answered.

These consist of; who will win the league and who will be relegated to the Championship. We now know the two ends of the table; Leicester City have been crowned champions of England, as we say goodbye to Aston Villa, Norwich City and Newcastle United, who have been relegated.

Undoubtedly there are still some class players within the three relegated teams, and here are our top five in no particular order.

Jordan Amavi (Aston Villa)

Jordan Amavi is a huge fan favourite at Villa Park, as the left-back showed huge signs of potential before damaging his cruciate knee ligament in November.

The France under 21 international has been out for the whole season since then, but has shown huge heart and passion to get Aston Villa back to the Premier League.

There are rumours that AC Milan could make a move in the summer which would be a huge loss to Villa fans.

Nathan Redmond (Norwich City)

Nathan Redmond is a huge talent at Norwich City after being signed from Birmingham City for just £2 million in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old winger has played over 100 games for the Canaries and petrifies most opponents with his lightning pace and quick feet.

After being regularly picked for the England under 21 International squad, this is a player who could actually see himself in the Premier League next season with several clubs interested.

Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle United)

After being signed from PSV Eindhoven last summer for £14.5 million, Georginio Wijnaldum has been a standout player in Newcastle’s team this season.

He came to everyone’s attention when he scored four goals against Norwich City in a 6-2 win at St James’ Park in October. The Dutch international's performances have dipped since the sacking of Steve McClaren, but many hope he can return to form under new manager Rafa Benitez.

The centre-attacking midfielder dazzles defenders with his excellent work-rate, quick feet and excellent finishing. Wijnaldum is another player who could also see himself staying in the Premier League with Manchester United being heavily linked as Louis van Gaal hopes to work with him once again.

Timm Klose (Norwich City)

After only joining the Canaries in January from VFL Wolfsburg, Timm Klose has received many plaudits over the last few months with some exceptional performances.

The huge centre-back has only played seven games for Norwich since joining them five months ago, but has already shown the heart and passion of a man who wanted to stay in the division.

After turning into one of the fan’s favourite at Carrow Road, Klose could prove a huge signing for Norwich next season, should they manage to keep hold of him.

Ayoze Perez (Newcastle United)

Ayoze Perez looks set for life with Newcastle in the Championship after rejecting interest from Real Madrid and FC Porto just over 20 months ago.

After signing from Tenerife in 2014, the Spanish striker has shown huge potential when playing for ‘the Toon’, and played a huge part in keeping Newcastle in the Premier League last season.

Perez's quick feet and vision would be a huge asset in the Championship next season, if United can fend off foreign teams wanting to sign him.
