We all know that Sunderland will probably see the EFL Championships rough edginess before any one else that is probably a given in there current plight but what about the other potential relegation candidates?
All of the teams in the graphic above have had pretty poor seasons of some degree even the Champions Leicester City have only picked up of late after Ranieri’s departure. Paul Clement and Marco Silva have come in late at Swansea and Hull respectively and Slavan Bilic isnt having the best of times at West Ham. The home form of Burnley has kept them in the league albeit Sean Dyche is still doing a marvellous job year after year. The saviour that is Sam Alladyce has come in and sorted out the Palace defence and with a win at Champions elect Chelsea on saturday they are confident and should be, of avoiding the drop. Middlesborough should be worried.
Sunderland, Swansea and Boro all have to playsone top 6 sides in there remaining games as do Hull but they have a bit of an easier run in than the aformentiond three.
Whatever the outcome, by my calculations going by points per game, the teams run ins, goals per game and expected points total come the end of the season, i believe it is the men who play on Humberside at the KCOM stadium who will survive the drop. But anything can happen and with Hull playing at Chelsea on the final day two major finishes could be decided.
