Sheffield United and West Brom deep into Premier League drop zone; Fulham resurgence sparks survival hope, Brighton, Newcastle, Burnley, Southampton and Crystal Palace not safe.
Could Fulham maintain their purple streak and secure safety at the cost of Brighton or Newcastle? We evaluate the state of play in the battle for survival…
Sheffield United are currently 12 points adrift from safety at the foot of the table, with the Baggies eight points behind 17th-placed Brighton – but Fulham have hit form and sit level on points with the Seagulls, with one extra game played.
Only eight points divide the Cottagers in 18th and Crystal Palace in 13th, which leaves all the teams in between in danger of slipping into the second tier come May: Brighton, Newcastle, Burnley and Southampton.
