Almost half the teams in the Premier League can still not be guaranteed survival in what is looking set to be a very tight relegation battle.
Nine clubs battle in Premier League relegation scrap
A two-horse race will almost certainly decide the destiny of the Premier League title this season with Arsenal leading Manchester City – but almost half of the top-flight clubs are still battling to avoid relegation.
Last week’s results left bottom side Bournemouth and 12th-placed Crystal Palace separated by a mere six points and, incredibly, none of those teams in the mix meet this weekend.
For those not involved in the fight to stay away from the bottom three it makes for compelling viewing towards the end of a season and this campaign looks like being a blockbuster.
Unusually, no club has been cast adrift, meaning three from the bottom nine will fall.
