Who is going to fall in Premier League relegation battle?


The Premier League title race may not go to the wire but the battle to beat the drop is set to go the distance.

Nine teams are in a relegation scrap with three months to go until the end of the season.

Southampton, Newcastle, Crystal Palace Brighton Bournemouth Aston Villa West Ham, Watford and Norwich all fighting for relegation to prevent.

Basement boys Norwich look like they were cut off eagerly, six points behind Watford and West Ham and seven out of safety, but with 12 games to go, anything can happen.

Here, Sportsmail looks at the games of the nine teams that are worried about surviving and assesses their chances of keeping up.

Saturday a massive series of diagrams starts for Ralph Hasenhuttl. For the next four weeks, they stand for all teams in and around them to ensure Premier League safety.

Southampton welcomes Aston Villa and Newcastle and makes trips to West Ham and Norwich in the coming weeks. It is imperative to get enough points on the board during that period.

The saints achieved good results this season against the so-called larger teams, including victories over Chelsea, Tottenham and Leicester, but are inconsistent against the teams in the lower half.

Great results in the coming month would ease the pressure. Now that Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United will follow in April, Southampton at least know that they have the potential to get something out of the games if necessary.

With striker Danny Ings in blister form with 15 goals this season and James Ward-Prowse returns from an injury, Southampton must stay away from danger.

Like the Southampton side, Steve Bruce is seven points free from the fall zone.

However, they have not won since January 18 when they captured a 1-0 shock over Chelsea.

But unlike the saints, they do not have a line of fire.

Joelinton, bought for a £ 40 million club record last summer, scored only one Premier League goal, which came in August.

Dwight Gayle could come in on Saturday for the trip to Crystal Palace while Andy Carroll is lying on the treatment table.

It is important that the magpies win again quickly as they face a tough race to play with Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool towards the end of the season.

An inability to score could very quickly narrow Newcastle's seven-point gap, but the fact that they were able to seal unlikely victories could help them.

The following four games are crucial to the Eagles season and in particular the next two where they face the team one place above them and the team one place below.

The matches against Newcastle and Brighton after the winter break are perhaps the biggest matches of the palace season.

The men of Hodgson are then confronted with a difficult period with meetings against Liverpool, Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester United.

If they struggle in the coming month, they will be dragged into the relegation scrap.

However, the feeling is that they have just enough about them to escape.

The side of Graham Potter has gone through a difficult period of late without victories this year.

Their last victory came on December 28 against Bournemouth.

After a terrible series of shapes, the seagulls now look over their shoulders.

Brighton has a number of difficult remaining games with Arsenal, Leicester, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City all to come.

Journeys to Norwich and Southampton stand out as major clashes in their run-in.

Brighton insured draws in their last two outings and so in any case does not lose and still adds points to the board.

Another positive point is that they have the best goal balance of the nine teams threatened with relegation.

The men of Eddie Howe have arguably the heaviest series of remaining fixtures.

The Cherries face Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Leicester and Manchester City in their last 12 games.

Bournemouth was in freefall to victories over Brighton and Aston Villa in recent weeks.

Saturday's match at Burnley is crucial to building self-confidence and gaining some momentum with the difficult fights that follow.

Prior to their home win against Brighton, they suffered defeat for the teams in and around them in the form of Norwich, Watford, and West Ham.

If Eddie Howe's side wants to stay on top, they have to collect points from the so-called big guns with not so many games against fellow wrestlers.

Dean Smith's side has a trip to Wembley to look forward to on March 1 but they are in 12th place in Southampton.

With two tough games to follow after the Carabao Cup final, it is vital that Aston Villa get three points on Saturday at St Mary & # 39; s.

Since their semi-final victory over League League against Leicester, they have suffered defeats from Bournemouth and Tottenham.

As a result, Villa are in a precarious position where Leicester, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal still have to play.

Villas are shaky at the back – they have awarded the most goals this season in the English top flight.

Villa has star Jack Grealish in their ranks, but they may need more than him to prevent them from returning to the championship right away.

The hammers are trapped in a rut after sealing a league win since January 1.

It seemed that that emphatic 4-0 win over relegation rivals Bournemouth would light their season, but David Moyes was struggling.

After having suffered a defeat by Manchester City on Wednesday, they face the tough journey to leader Liverpool on Monday.

If they can get something from Anfield, it would be a huge self-confidence on the way to a massive game against Southampton

The Hammers still face rivals Tottenham and Chelsea, but get the chance to come out of the drop zone in April with matches against Newcastle, Burnley, Norwich and Watford.

Moyes led West Ham to Premier League security in the 2017-18 season and the club should have enough quality to prevent the drop this time.

The appointment of Nigel Pearson had the desired effect. 15 points from his first eight league matches have given them a huge chance to stay up.

In recent weeks, however, the Hornets have bumped into a few bumps without winning in four league games.

They have to regain speed and get something from Old Trafford on Sunday, that is exactly what they could do.

Watford won a 2-0 win over Manchester United in December and had the quality to give the Red Devils more trouble.

April can be an important time for the club with matches against Southampton, Norwich and Newcastle, especially as their season ends with clashes against Manchester City and Arsenal.

Pearson rescued Leicester from the drop-in 2015 and could unleash another major escape.

They were narrowly defeated last weekend by runaway Liverpool leaders.

The following games are made or broken for Norwich with Wolves, Leicester, Sheffield United and Southampton to play.

] The feeling is that Norwich is too far behind in this phase of the season.

They scored the joint lowest number of goals and awarded the second second highest. It seems that Norwich will again be in the second rank of English football.

10. Fred (newcomer)

After failing to hit the ground after his £ 52 million move from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018, there were many who shouted out the Brazilian like a & # 39; flop & # 39 ;.

But in his second season in English football, Fred seems to have found his feet and he begins to show the form that made him such a valuable resource in the transfer market 18 months ago.

Despite the fact that he has now strengthened his place in the side, something he could not do in 2018-19, Fred has ensured a vocal presence by demanding more.

He again put down an impressive display in the 2-0 win over Chelsea next to January by signing Bruno Fernandes and there is enough for fans to be hopeful to move forward.

The starting role at Chelsea was Fred & # 39; s 19th consecutive Premier League match and although it has taken a while, United fans now feel they see exactly what they have for £ 52 million.

9. Yerry Mina (four down)

The Everton defender drops four places after the 3-1 win at Crystal Palace.

Frankly, it would be difficult for the Colombian to improve – or even match – his headband that Everton set off against Newcastle.

The defense of the palace goal, where Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was the victim of criticism, played a role at Mina this week, but he remains a reliable member of the rear line for boss Carlo Ancelotti

He must be in top form in the coming weeks with the visit of the free-scoring Arsenal on Sunday, followed by Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.

<p> <noscript> <noscript>] <img id= Yerry Mina (left) is a reliable member of the defense, but faces severe trials in the coming weeks

8. Dani Ceballos (newcomer)

Like Fred, Arsenal is a borrower Dani Ceballos again a newcomer in this week's rankings after his screening in the route across Newcastle.

Despite not scoring in the 4-0 win, the conversation that left the Emirates Stadium was that Mikel Arteta has finally discovered the best – and most effective – position for Ceballos.

Before the game against Newcastle, Ceballos had not participated in a Premier League that started XI for Arsenal since a draw with Wolves in November. In a profound role alongside Granit Xhaka, Ceballos flourished, quickly recycling the ball and launched attacks in transition for Mesut Özil, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

His death is one of the most accurate in the team and is deeper, in a role that Santi Cazorla chose later in his career, Ceballos can play something that comes close to a quarterback for this ever-changing Arteta -side.

 Dani Ceballos excelled in a deep midfield role in the 4-0 match of Arsenal against Newcastle "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= 7. Sadio Mane (newcomer)

Not that his teammates, Jurgen Klopp or Liverpool supporters a needed a reminder, but in the event that they did, Sadio Mane proved again what is missing when he is out.

Returning from an injury on Carrow Road against Norwich, the Senegalese star came off the bench to win the game in what was for the most part a frustrating night for Liverpool.

Jordan Henderson, who offered acres of space in the middle circle, shot a ball to the edge of the Norwich box towards Mane, wedged between two defenders.

He produced a pirouette, bringing the ball down with his right foot before clinically shooting with his left side in the lower corner. That was all Liverpool needed to make 25 points clear in that phase and finally one step closer to the title.

 Sadio Mane showed Liverpool what they miss when he gets hurt with the winner in Norwich "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> <noscript> <img id= Sadio Mane showed Liverpool what they were missing when he was injured with the winner in Norwich

6. Son Heung-min (new entry)

The disappointing for Tottenham is that this is the last involvement of Son Heung-min for the season 2019-2020 can prove to be.

But if this was his last contribution, it could prove huge in their attempt to overthrow Chelsea in the race for the top four.

Villa, who scraped for points because they offered to prevent relegation, seemed to have done enough to keep Jose Mourinho & # 39; s side to a draw until Son incited the afterburners to stop it in the stopping time to win.

Davinson Sanchez fired a hopeful ball into the field and Bjorn Engels seemed to hit Son against the ball, only to miss his kick completely and Son ran without a penalty for 3-2.

 Son Heung-min's contribution at Aston Villa can be vital in the Champions League race "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> <noscript> <img id= The contribution van Son Heung-min at Aston Villa can be vital in the Champions League race

5. Virgil van Dijk (one)

With every week that passes, Virgil seems van Dijk to become increasingly impressive in a Liverpool shirt.

On Carrow Road, he won all three of his air duals and played more successful passes than any other player in the park, with 77.

He is imperious and is a vital cog in one defense that has now included 10 clean sheets in 11 games.

Despite the unanimous choice of PFA Players & # 39; player of the year last season, his capriciously consistent performance in what promises a record-breaking season means that his plea for back-to-back is getting stronger.

 Virgil van Dijk shows no fight because Liverpool looks unbeatable in the Premier League "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Virgil van Dijk shows a fight if Liverpool looks unbeatable in the Premier League

4. Roberto Firmino (two down)

It was surprising that Roberto Firmino, a player who seems to shine the brightest when he is not with Anfield, did not perform better in Norwich than he and dropped two points as such.

There were times, a no-look pass that sent social media into a spiral, but after seeing all eight of his Premier League goals arrive on the road this season, there was great expectation that he would to his count in Norfolk.

Most goals in a full league season without scoring at home are seven – that was Ryan Giggs in 2000-01.

But Firmino is unlikely to focus on that quirky record because he wants to achieve double digits before the season is over. Although not disappointing, given the expectations that await him, Firmino has had better days.

3. Mohamed Salah (no change)

Given the attention he attracts, often trapped in double opposition teams, Mohamed Salah a huge good even when he does not score.

The game had few chances, but Salah put on the gloves of goalkeeper Tim Krul and the Reds were unlucky when the rebound by Naby Keita failed.

While Mane received the winner, Salah continues to earn high praise for his contribution on and off the ball.

He is enjoying another fantastic season and while Liverpool keeps winning and showing no signs of mercy on the way to the title, Salah is safe in the rankings of power.

 The threat from Mohamed Salah means that teams throw double teams to try its impact "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> <noscript> <img id= The threat of Mohamed Salah means that teams throw double teams to try to limit his impact

2. Kevin De Bruyne (six years)

All talk has been about whether he will stay or go after the UEFA ban of two year on the Champions League for Manchester City.

It has dominated the news agenda and yet, when the rescheduled game against West Ham rolled on Wednesday, Kevin De Bruyne decided to give his speech on the field.

He supported an assistant for Rodri & # 39; s opener with its own purpose of serving as a reminder of the football world that he is currently at the height of his strength.

Even if Liverpool runs away with the league title, De Bruyne expects the biggest threat to the best stars of the Reds as a player of the year.

 Kevin De Bruyne continues to deliver outstanding performance while Manchester City continues to fight "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Kevin De Bruyne continues to deliver outstanding performance while Manchester City continues to fight

1. Jordan Henderson (no change)

While De Bruyne pushed him closer, Captain Jordan Henderson in Liverpool managed to hold second place for a second week.

The midfielder of England is a model professional and enjoys one of the best seasons of his career.

It was his long ball that Mane chose for the winner in Norwich and he exudes a calmness when frustration seems to creep into the people around him.

The 29-year-old is the heartbeat of this Liverpool team and is on track to establish itself in club history after winning the Champions League. One of the most improved and impressive players in the Klopp era.

Rory McIlroy rules himself out of proposed Premier Golf League that would rival PGA Tour


The more I have thought about it, the more I don't like it & # 39 ;: Rory McIlroy closes off the proposed Premier Golf League that would compete with PGA Tour and would have £ 180 million in prize money

  • Premier Golf League proposed 18 event season and £ 183 million prize fund
  • New tournament has had a setback with Rory McIlroy withdrawing
  • ] Northern Irish insisted on maintaining the autonomy of his career

Rory McIlroy has delivered a potentially fatal blow to the proposed Premier Golf League by excluding itself from participating in a separate circuit.

According to the proposals outlined by the World Golf Group in January, 48 players would compete in a season with 18 events and a total prize pool of £ 183 million.

The tournaments would be 54 holes instead of the traditional 72 and there would be an individual and team league format, with the weekly individual winner claiming USD 2 million £ 1.5 million from the £ 7.5. m wallet.

<p class= Rory McIlroy has withdrawn the newly proposed Premier Golf League over schedule concerns

Chances of success, the PGL should have like & # 39; the world's number one McIlroy and Tiger Woods among its players.

However, apart from excluding himself, McIlroy also believes that Woods would not be interested in playing so many events.

& # 39; The more I have thought about it, the more I don't like it, & # 39; McIlroy told reporters in a press conference prior to the WGC-Mexico championship.

& # 39; The only thing I appreciate in my position as a professional golfer is the fact that I have autonomy and freedom over everything I do.

& # 39; This (week) is a perfect example. Some boys made the choice this week not to come to Mexico. If you play in this other golf competition, you don't have that choice.

& # 39; I recently read something that said that if you take the money, they can tell you what to do, so if you don't take the money, they can't tell you what to do.

& # 39; I think that's my thing – I've never been told what to do and I like that autonomy and freedom about my career and I think I should give up by playing in this other competition. I'm ahead of me. & # 39;

McIlroy acknowledges that he may have to change his attitude if he is the only player against the competition, but believes that the opinion is currently & # 39; very divided & # 39; is between the game's star names.

& # 39; My position is that I am against it until a day can come when I cannot be against it, & # 39; added the four-fold big winner. "If everyone else goes, I may not have a choice, but at the moment I don't like what they represent.

& # 39; Tiger & # 39; s 44, he has two young children. He said openly last week that he wants to play 12 times a year, this competition proposes 18, so he won't do it. & # 39;

 McIlroy also believes the American star Tiger Wooods will choose the 18-competition competition "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= McIlroy also believes that the American star Tiger Wooods will choose the 18-event competition

The concept of an & # 39 World Golf Tour & # 39; has existed for more than 20 years, with former world number one Greg Norman unveiling his plans in 1994, but that did not get a grip.

& # 39; I would like to be on the right side of history with this, just a bit like Arnold (Palmer) was with the entire Greg Norman thing in the 90s, & # 39 McIlroy added.

& # 39; Money is cheap, money is the easy part. It should not be the driving factor. For some people it is and we are professional golfers and we are playing golf here to earn a living, but in the end I appreciate my freedom and my autonomy over everything else.

I appreciate many other things about money and that is my position on this. & # 39;

    City play West Ham in the Etihad Stadium tonight for a trip to Leicester on Saturday.

    Guardiola will be confronted with questions for the first time tonight since UEFA banned the club for two years for breaches of financial fair play.

    West Ham boss David Moyes says he & # 39; more than confident & # 39; , he can get his club out of relegation, but complained about the loss of valuable preparation time caused by the rescheduling of tonight's match.

    I can't remember a team that showed Liverpool the same intensity level as Atletico. They were fierce with their defensive, well organized, sharp and aggressive. Liverpool was a bit off.

    I thought this Atletico side was not as strong as last year, but it turned out that they still have a wish.

    It is a lesson for the Premier League. Liverpool earned the right in the league last season, and they will have to do it again.
