Premier League relegation battle: The run-in analysis

Sheffield United has been relegated and Newcastle has eight points from their last 12 available as Steve Bruce’s side have improved massively since Alan Saint-Maximin returned from injury.

West Brom coughed up a lead late on at Aston Villa as they are now nine points from safety with five games to go, while Fulham have lost points in heartbreaking fashion recently and are now seven points from safety.

Burnley have surged up the standings, while Southampton and Brighton have struggled to pick up points in recent weeks. Brighton have a horrible run-in, so if Fulham can get a run together the Seagulls may be looking over their shoulder.
