WITH most of the issues settled at the top of the table the attention turns to the fight to beat the drop.
Any three from eight can be relegated but it looks one to go along with West Brom and Stoke.
And if he's not careful that one will be Mark Hughes's Southampton – leaving the boss tagged with taking down two sides having spent most of the season at Stoke.
The Saints face a massive match at home to south-coast rivals Bournemouth today and it looks a must-win for Sparky.
He's guided Southampton to one win and three defeats in the league and they've conceded three goals in four of their last five.
Bournemouth aren't in great form with no clean sheets in 10 but would take great delight in adding to their rivals' doom and gloom and look massively under-rated at 21-5 with McBookie. That makes the Cherries draw no bet attractive at 27-10.
Southampton have won three out of 21 at home yet are a best 3-4 with BetStars and that makes little sense.
West Brom are unbeaten in three under Darren Moore including a win at Man United and a draw against Liverpool.
They need three wins to stay up but it could be the end of the road at Newcastle today with the home men again a little short at 9-10 with Marathonbet.
Stoke on paper have the toughest assignment at rampant Liverpool at lunchtime and Paul Lambert will be hoping Jurgen Klopp fields Steven Gerrard's kids.
Klopp's likely to rest some stars but there are reports Mo Salah will start in a strong line-up. Back Liverpool -1 at 5-6 with Paddy Power and if Salah is in there take him to score first.
Crystal Palace are almost safe and are 11-10 at McBookie to confirm a great escape under Roy Hodgson by beating Leicester at home. Both can score at 3-4 with betfair.
Burnley have won five out of seven and I'm on them at 14-11 to beat Brighton who are winless in six – and that's a big price for a side sitting just four points behind Arsenal.
It will be Arsene Wenger's final trip to Old Trafford but bookies aren't giving anything away with United no bigger than 4-9 at bet365.
In the Championship it's another big day with Cardiff fighting Fulham for second and four or five sides battling for the final two play-off places.
Aston Villa v Derby and Middlesbrough v Millwall are two massive matches and two homes are possible.
Cardiff face a tough test at a Hull side who have gone goal crazy in recent weeks – netting four or more in three of their last four.
Goals could be the way to go here – Hull drew 5-5 at Bristol City last week – and over 2.5 pays 4-5 at Marathonbet.
At the other end of the table Burton v Bolton is massive with the home side two points behind their visitors. Burton have lost just one in five – 5-0 against Hull – and I fancy their chances at 6-4 with betfair.
Former Ross County striker Liam Boyce hit the last-gasp winner that relegated Sunderland last week and he is 7-1 at betfair to break the deadlock.
In League One Plymouth lie two points outside the play-offs and face a Rotherham side who have made it in and could rest players. Derek Adams's side can't afford to slip up and are 6-4 at Ladbrokes.
Scunthorpe sit sixth and are 21-10 with bet365 to win at doomed MK Dons.
Accrington need a point at home to Lincoln to clinch the League Two title while the Imps will seal a play-off spot with a draw that pays 12-5 with William Hill.

- Liverpool -1
