With the Premier League relegation fight now in its final week, Everton, Leeds and Leicester all find themselves in danger of dropping into the Championship along with already-relegated Southampton.
Southampton’s 11-year spell in the Premier League came to an end following their defeat to Fulham, but who else will join them in being demoted to the Championship?
With just one week of the season remaining, Everton (17th – 33 points), Leicester (18th – 31 points) and Leeds (19th – 31 points) all remain in danger.
You can watch the final battle for Premier League survival live on Sky Sports on May 28, with Everton vs Bournemouth and Leicester vs West Ham both to be shown live, with kick-off at 4.30pm.
Everton will be certain of surviving if Leeds fail to beat Tottenham and Leicester don’t beat West Ham on the final day.
As it stands, Leeds need a win to have any hope of staying up and could still be relegated even if they beat Tottenham next Sunday and Everton don’t beat Bournemouth because Leicester sit above them in the table on goal difference.
Leicester have to beat West Ham to have any hope of avoiding relegation, and hope Bournemouth can take something from their final-day game at Everton, and that Leeds don’t manage the unthinkable and overturn their nine-goal superior goal difference.

In the event that Leicester don’t win on Sunday, goal difference could yet prove decisive in a head-to-head fight to avoid the drop between Everton and Leeds.
Were Everton to draw with Bournemouth and Leeds to beat Tottenham then they would both finish the season on 34 points.
At present, Leeds’ goal difference is -27 and Everton’s -24. Were Leeds to win by three clear goals on the final day and Everton to draw, Leeds would then finish above Everton on account of goals scored.
