Premier League relegation picture as Burnley, Nott’m Forest and Luton fight for survival

0

The Premier League season is coming to a close and there are still three teams battling to avoid the two relegation places that remain. 

Sheffield United are the only club whose relegation from England’s top-flight is confirmed but there are still Burnley, Luton Town and Nottingham Forest hoping to avoid joining the Blades.

Meanwhile, we already know two teams that will replace them from the Championship as
Leicester City and Ipswich Town sealed their promotions

in the past few weeks. 

The Championship playoffs will decide the third and final Championship team that will compete in the Premier League in the 2024/25 season.

The Sporting News takes a look at the three teams’ scenarios and the overall relegation picture.

Chris Wilder’s side already have an unwanted piece of history to their name having conceded the most goals in a 38-game season. They are set to surpass Swindon Town’s Premier League record of 100 goals against in the 1994/95 season when the division had 22 teams, having drawn level with the Robins. Only Leicester in 1908/09 (102) and Darwen in 1891/92 (112) have conceded more in an English top-flight season.

The Blades avoided becoming the
new worst team in league history

as they surpassed the record for the lowest Premier League points tally. That slice of ignominy still belongs to Derby County’s 11-point campaign of 2007/08

Their season has been marred by heavy defeats both home and away. They suffered a humiliating 8-0 loss at home to Newcastle in September, a 5-0 defeat away at Burnley, and a demoralising 6-0 thrashing at home to Arsenal in March, where they conceded five goals in just 40 minutes.

Remaining fixtures – Everton (A), Tottenham (H)

Burnley, despite picking up some momentum in recent weeks, face a daunting task against Tottenham who are still clinging on to thin hopes of
catching Aston Villa for the final Champions League place

.

Vincent Kompany’s team must win at Spurs to have any chance of survival in a potentially nerve-shredding final-day showdown against Nottingham Forest at Turf Moor.

Remaining fixtures – Tottenham (A), Forest (H)

Rob Edwards’ side have seemingly become everybody’s second team this year as they’ve stuck to their word of taking the game to the opponent and caused discomfort to some of the league’s big guns.

But will that be enough to keep them up? A trip to West Ham who, have recently announced David Moyes will be departing at the end of the season and have nothing to play for could play in Luton’s favour. 

The other chance of picking up points comes in a similar situation where they’ll be backed by a home crowd on the final day against Fulham, another team sitting comfortably in mid-table.

Remaining fixtures – West Ham (A), Fulham (H)

Forest find themselves in a position that would see them retain their Premier League status next season as they sit one place above the drop zone, three points above Luton and with a far superior goal difference. A win against a resurgent Chelsea at home would effectively rule out relegation, while results elsewhere this weekend could also remove all jeopardy from their trip to Burnley.

Remaining fixtures – Chelsea (H), Burnley (A)
