The Relegation fight. Who is going to stay up and who's going down?
With just 4 games left from the majority of the teams in the bottom half of the table and with the weekends results tightening things up at the bottom. It looks like its going down to the wire about who is going to be relegated to the championship. As it stands, the bottom three consists of Sunderland on 25 points, Cardiff on 29 points and Fulham on 30 points. Sunderland currently have two games in hand over the teams above them but that does not guarantee them maximum points. Fulham and Cardiff picked up crucical wins over Norwich and Southampton to keep them in contention to beat the drop. Norwich are hovering just above the drop zone with 32 points and face a tough run in against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United in their final four games. West Brom and Swansea are just a point ahead of Norwich and have been struggling for form over recent weeks. West Brom in particular have dropped points from winning positions in consecutive home games. Aston Villa are also in the mix to be relegated being on 34 points and without leading goalscorer Christian Benteke for the rest of the season. So who will beat the drop? Can Sunderland, Cardiff and Fulham overcome the odds? Can Norwich get anything from their final games against tough opposition? Can Swansea, WBA and Villa regain some form to survive? Get involved.
