The Premier League this season has attracted a total of 16.3 million viewers, marking a year-on-year increase of 4%. When combined with viewership from the English Football League, Scottish Professional Football League and Women’s Super League, there is an overall increase in viewership by 9%.

Massive changes in commentary box for final day

Coverage on Sky Sports for the final day of the Premier League will commence at 3pm on Sunday. Broadcasting live from Etihad on Sky Sports Main Event, David Jones will be joined by Micah Richards and Jamie Redknapp to see if Manchester City can secure their fourth consecutive Premier League title.

Gary Neville will join Peter Drury in providing commentary for this potentially historic game. If West Ham United manages to pull off "the unlikeliest of upsets" at Etihad, Sky promises to broadcast the trophy lift from north London.

Kelly Cates and Jamie Carragher will cover Liverpool v Wolverhampton Wanderers as fans bid farewell to Jürgen Klopp at Anfield. Coverage from Anfield starts at 3pm on Sky Sports Premier League. The final European places are set to be decided as Chelsea takes on Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge live on Sky Sports Football and Arena.
