The title has long been sewn up, the relegation places all but decided and the top four on the brink of conclusion, yet there is still plenty to play for on the final weekend of the Premier League.

There is still £10m or more in prize money up for grabs for six clubs in their final fixture of the season this Sunday.

Only a handful of clubs — Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Burnley — have had their financial fate determined regardless of what happens this weekend.

For the six clubs separated by just two points between 10th and 15th, this weekends result could be worth a new summer signing with £9.8m in the Premier Leagues end-of-season merit payments still on the line for Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Watford and Brighton.

West Ham, who could still finish as low as 17th and as high as 10th, have as much as £13.6m to play for against Everton at home.

As well as merit payments distributed based on where sides finish, the Premier League also pays club a £35.3m equal share of TV income, £39.1m in overseas TV payments and a £4.8m share of central commercial deals. The only other variable between clubs are the facility fees distributed to clubs based on the number of times theyve been on domestic TV in a season.

Every team is first paid a flat facility fee of £12.4m, regardless of how many times theyve been selected by Sky or BT, and then a further £1.14m is paid to clubs for every live TV game over 10 they have in the season.

That means Manchester United, who have been shown on TV 30 times this season, are still likely to receive more money than anyone else from the Premier League this season despite finishing second.

Jose Mourinhos side are set to earn £35.1m in facility fees to add to their £36.9m in merit payments and £79.2m in equally distributed payments, leaving them with £151.2m.

Runaway champions Manchester City, having only been shown on live TV 27 times this season including this weekends visit to Southampton, will likely finish with around £149.7m.

Seventh-place Burnley, who overcame the odds to secure a Europa League place this season, are estimated to finish with less money than the three sides directly below them in the league — Everton, Leicester and Newcastle — after only being selected for a live TV game seven times, the lowest of any team in the league.

West Hams strife-ridden season could not be perceived more differently from Burnleys campaign, yet as they were shown on TV 18 times they will finish with more money at £122.1m.
