Premier League relegation battle: Will Leeds, Leicester, Forest or Everton join Southampton in going down?

With the Premier League relegation fight entering its final stages, Nottingham Forest, Everton, Leicester, Leeds and all still find themselves in danger of dropping into the Championship along with Southampton.

Southampton’s 11-year spell in the Premier League has come to an end following their defeat to Fulham.

But who else will join them in being demoted to the Championship?

With just two weeks of the season, Nottingham Forest, Everton, Leeds and Leicester all remain in danger.

Forest (34 points) will finish the season with games against Arsenal and Crystal Palace. Everton (32 points) have two matches remaining against Wolves and Bournemouth.

Leeds (31 points) will need to take at least a point against West Ham (a) and Tottenham (h) – and then hope for a significant dent in Everton’s current goal difference were the Toffees to lose their remaining games – to have any hope of survival. To finish above Forest, Leeds must win at least one of those fixtures.

As for Leicester, their two-point deficit to fourth-from-bottom Everton means they have to find, at an absolute minimum, two points from their final games against Liverpool (h), Newcastle (a) or West Ham (h) to have any prospect of survival.
