If Burnley are to stave off the threat of relegation a home meeting with Stoke could be central to it. The Clarets need the Turf Moor form to return as they seek a first win in eight – the Potters are also three without a win but sit comfortably in ninth.

Four successive wins has taken Leicester away from relegation trouble with the Foxes now looking at a potential top 10 finish. Sunderland on the other hand are bottom of the Premier League – having won just once in 10 – and facing relegation.

A much needed first win in five for Watford eased relegation concerns at the weekend. The Hornets will look to build on this against a West Brom side that’s virtually assured an eighth place finish now.

Manchester United’s Old Trafford draw with West Brom on Saturday meant United dropped further off a Champions League spot. A win over Everton is a near must to keep those hopes alive; however, the Toffees are seeking a reaction to the Merseyside defeat in a bid to keep European aspirations alive.

Wednesday’s remaining fixtures will include Arsenal’s entertaining West Ham. The Gunners battled back twice to draw with Manchester City on Sunday but they now need wins – with losing four in a row this will be seen as one they should win…

A huge ‘six pointer’ at the KCOM Stadium will see Hull welcome Middlesbrough. Victory for the Tigers and they could move out of the bottom three – virtually relegating their opponents – but a defeat would see Boro move to within a point of their hosts and potentially within two points of safety.

Southampton are still considered by some as a club that could fear the threat of relegation should they go on a losing run? However, with them well placed in 10th a top 10 finish will be the more likely scenario – Crystal Palace on the other hand would simply take Premier League survival. Four straight wins has taken Palace out of the bottom four and they hold a four point cushion going into this round of games.

A goalless draw at the Liberty Stadium against relegation rivals Middlesbrough didn’t do Swansea too much good on Sunday. The Swans could drop into the bottom three if title chasing Tottenham – very much back in the championship race after a surprise Chelsea defeat – win for a fifth game in a row.

Chelsea look for a quick reaction to the surprise defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday. A second successive Stamford Bridge defeat and the seemingly champions elect could start to worry? Manchester City’s outside title hopes would be dependent on a win in London you would think, anything but and it’s definitely over for City.

Victory in the Merseyside derby moved Liverpool a step closer to Champions League football. The Reds might feel they’ve an outside chance of pushing for the Premier League but a win over Bournemouth – unbeaten in four and well set for another season of topflight football – at Anfield would be essential.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.
