So it looks set to be a battle for survival in the closing weeks of the campaign with two from possible three sides battling it out not to join Aston Villa in the Championship next season.
It will be two from Sunderland, Newcastle United and Norwich City who will be experiencing life out of the Premier League next term.
An upturn in form in recent weeks has seen Newcastle United give themselves a great chance of survival, and with bitter rivals Sunderland also in danger what a buzz it would be for either sides fans to relegate their rivals.
One thing is for sure though the battle will go down to the final day, and the fans will not expect anything less than 100% effort from the three sides in danger, and we all wait with baited breath to see who survives.
Our landlord here in The Tavern has been looking at the squad lists of the three sides in danger and has come up with a best combined PL relegation XI……..
