SUNDERLAND and Newcastle fans will be able to watch the final day action unfold after their games were both chosen for live Sky coverage.

Dick Advocaat’s Sunderland and John Carver’s Newcastle are battling with Hull City to stay in the top flight and it was no surprise to see all three games chosen to be screened live.

Sunderland travel to champions Chelsea and their match will be on Sky 1.

Kick-off at Stamford Bridge will take place at the original time of 3pm, with tickets for Sunday’s trip to west London sold out.

Hull City v Manchester United (Sky Sports 1) and Newcastle United v West Ham United (Sky Sports 3) will also be aired live.

Hull currently occupy the third and final relegation spot, with QPR and Burnley already relegated.

Newcastle are fourth bottom following their defeat at QPR, while Sunderland are fifth-bottom following their point at home to Leicester City.

Sky’s live fixtures are:

- Hull City v Manchester United, live on Sky Sports 1 from 2pm
