TV bosses ignore Newcastle's last day Euro bid as Magpies snubbed for Jurgen Klopp farewell

Newcastle United's final day encounter with Brentford was overlooked by TV chiefs on the final day broadcast list.

The Magpies could still finish the season in sixth place if they emerge victorious against the Bees with their Europa League dream not over yet. And they only have to better Manchester United's points tally to land seventh place and potentially secure a Europa Conference League place.

But after TV bosses got together to decide the final day of the season live fixtures, Newcastle fans who can't make it to Brentford have been left disappointed. Inevitably, the top picks were the games that will decide the destination of the Premier League title race with Sky Sports choosing Manchester City's home clash with West Ham United at the venue where the Premier League trophy has been lifted for the last three seasons.

TNT Sports were always going to opt for a title deciding game and they will present live coverage of Arsenal against Everton at the Emirates Stadium. But Sky Sports' other two picks made for interesting reading as they preferred Chelsea's home game against AFC Bournemouth, with the Blues needing just a point against the Cherries to seal their Europa League place.

And rather than going for Newcastle's trip to Brentford, the game which could see the Magpies book their European slot, the Sky Sports broadcast trucks will be pulling up outside Anfield. For on Merseyside, Sky Sports were keen to be there to see out Jurgen Klopp's final game in English football against Wolverhampton Wanderers, even though there is nothing at stake other than sentiment from a Reds point of view.

Of course, goal flashes will be available throughout the day but after Newcastle lost to Man United in front of the Sky Sports cameras it felt like TV broadcast officials see the excitement elsewhere on what could be a dramatic final day shoot out.
