Whilst the Premier League title may have been decided a very long time ago and the places for the Champions League continually hotting up with each gameweek that passes, there is another intriguing battle at the wrong end of the division.
No football club ever wants to be in-and-around the relegation zone at any moment of the season, however there will always be three unfortunate clubs to suffer the fate of having to miss out on top-flight football for at least a season.
Throughout time, there have been a number of clubs who have had the misfortune of suffering relegation from the Premier League and have never been able to work their way back up to the promised land, with the likes of Leeds United (who finally might do it), Nottingham Forest, Charlton Athletic, Sunderland and even Bradford City just a handful of those teams yet to make it back to where they used to be.
The relegation battle can also provide bettors with an interesting proposition when making a wager, with Thailand Online Casino providing them with the opportunity to find the best odds from sportsbooks and casinos.
Norwich City are already down for a fifth time (a Premier League record), but who will be joining them once the 2019/20 campaign is finished? Here we take a look at those still in the fight for survival and look at the fixtures they have left to play.
The Villans have a huge task on their hands, with the likes of Everton away (Thursday), Arsenal at Villa Park and fellow candidates West Ham United away on the final day of the season. They still have a four-point swing to overturn heading into the class with the Toffees, however whether they will be able to overturn that and achieve more points than their rivals will be an accomplishment too hard to achieve.
The Cherries put themselves in a great fighting chance with their impressive 4-1 dismantling of Leicester City and with games against Southampton and Everton, sides who have nothing to play for, they could be in an excellent position to escape the drop.
The Hornets face West Ham United on July 17 in a massive six-pointer as a win for either side will likely secure their status in the Premier League for another year, although the Hertfordshire club would have felt safer if they had come out of their game against Chelsea with something. Watford also face Manchester City and Arsenal, therefore will want to come away from the London Stadium with all three points.
West Ham United
The Hammers have games against Watford, Manchester United and Aston Villa remaining to keep their place in England’s top division. With two of them against fellow relegation rivals and the other against a side desperate to keep their challenge for a Champions League spot, things could be hugely tricky for David Moyes’ side in the final few days.
Brighton & Hove Albion
Although the Seagulls would feel safe where they are, they still can go down. Graham Potters’ have matches against Southampton, Newcastle United and Burnley left to play, and with the three aforementioned sides not having too much to play for, they will fancy their chances of survival.
