We're into the final straight of the season across England's top four tiers, but there is still a lot to play for.

The Premier League title is wrapped up, but at the bottom of the table and lower down the footballing pyramid, there is plenty still at stake.

Here, we round-up who can still finish where in the Premier League and Football League.

Premier League

Every team has two or three games remaining, and after last weekend, the relegation battle is looking back ON.

Manchester City are champions, while Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham should all wrap up a top four position, barring a significant late collapse coupled with a run of Chelsea wins.

Arsenal are likely to beat Burnley to sixth place, with the losers of that race to go into the Europa League at the second qualifying stage - which starts on July 26.

Everyone from Crystal Palace in 11th and below can still be relegated, but it would take something dramatic for any of the teams above West Ham in 15th to be pulled back in to the dogfight.

Southampton, Stoke and West Brom are in real trouble but recent form suggests this race isn't over yet.

Wolves are Championship champions, while Cardiff are in pole position to secure the second automatic play-off spot, one point ahead of Fulham with one game to play. The team who loses that race will go into the play-offs with Aston Villa.

They will be joined by two more of Middlesbrough, Derby, Preston and Millwall, but Millwall need a unlikely nine-goal swing to sneak into the play-offs.

At the other end of the table, Sunderland's relegation to League One has been confirmed.

Burton and Bolton currently make up the bottom three. Every side up to Reading can still technically go down, which sets up an exciting final day of the season.

League One

Wigan and Blackburn have sealed the two automatic promotion spots, meaning Shrewsbury have had to settle for a place in the play-offs.

They will be joined by Rotherham and Scunthorpe, plus one more team from Charlton or Plymouth, though the former have three-point and six-goal advantage.

At the bottom, Bury and MK Dons are down. Northampton need a miracle to survive. They will be joined by one more of Oldham and Rochdale.

League Two

Accrington Stanley, Luton and Wycombe and wrapped up the three promotion spots.

Exeter and Notts County will be in the play-offs, joined by two of Coventry, Lincoln and Mansfield.

Chesterfield have been relegated from the Football League, and it is looking perilously likely for Barnet, too, though Morecambe are still not quite safe.
