Relegation Run In

As we head towards the end of the 2019/20 season, it’s looking increasingly likely that we will witness a tough relegation battle.

While last night’s win saw the Hammers take a vital three points from Chelsea, there is still everything to play for as it looks set to go down to the wire.

Each of the bottom six teams has six games remaining, with the pressure mounting and every goal making a difference.

Here’s everything you need to know about the remaining fixtures that could determine relegation:

Brighton

Points: 33
Goal difference: -10

Average position of remaining teams to face: 9.83

Norwich (A)
Liverpool (H)
Man City (H)
Southampton (A)
Newcastle (H)
Burnley (A)

West Ham

Points: 30
Goal difference: -18

Average position of remaining teams to face: 13.66

Newcastle (A)
Burnley (H)
Norwich (A)
Watford (H)
Manchester United (A)
Aston Villa (H)

Watford

Points: 28
Goal difference: -20

Average position of remaining teams to face: 10.33

Chelsea (A)
Norwich (H)
Newcastle (H)
West Ham (A)
Man City (H)
Arsenal (A)

Aston Villa

Points: 27
Goal difference: -24

Average position of remaining teams to face: 8.66

Liverpool (A)
Manchester United (H)
Crystal Palace (H)
Everton (A)
Arsenal (H)
West Ham (A)

Bournemouth

Points: 27
Goal difference: -24

Average position of remaining teams to face: 7.16

Manchester United (A)
Tottenham (H)
Leicester (H)
Man City (A)
Southampton (H)
Everton (A)

Norwich

Points: 21
Goal difference: -35

Average position of remaining teams to face: 10.5

Brighton (H)
Watford (A)
West Ham (H)
Chelsea (A)
Burnley (H)
Man City (A)

What does this mean?

What this means it that statistically speaking, ranked from ‘easiest’ to ‘hardest’ fixtures remaining, we have:

West Ham
Norwich
Watford
Brighton
Aston Villa
Bournemouth

Of course… football tends to not follow the odds, hence the reason bookmakers are still going… but those in the bottom six that can capitalise on their remaining games will be able to pull away.

With everything left to play for, it’s certainly going to be an interesting few weeks ahead!


Until next time,
