To me as a guy from the Netherlands....it's the fact that big clubs like Leeds and Everton could be relegated at the end of the season that makes the Premier League so damn awesome!!

Momentum is everything at this stage and Burnley have it. If Everton lose tomorrow it’s over for them.

I feel like Everton will go down.
In the unlikely scenario they stay up, Leeds will go down just because of the fixture list.
Burnley are staying up, you can come back here if I’m wrong with this.

Realistically Everton need to win 3 out of 6 to be in with a chance of staying up. Not going to happen.

Burnley will most likely survive - I think it’s really between Leeds and Everton.

When you directly compare the matches on paper, points in the bag and managerial savvy Leeds United should be ok.
However, now you see one of their lynchpins, i.e. Dallas getting a broken leg and Cooper injured again you begin to wonder how many more injuries can a team possibly have and survive.
No captain, no striker, no full back etc.
I fear for them.

If Everton don't take 9 points from Watford away and two home games against teams in mid table, they deserve to go down. If I had to make a prediction, I'd have Leeds going down just because I think they have the trickier run in and Everton will get a couple of wins to give them some momentum before Leeds play Brighton. I agree though it will go down to the wire.

Yerry Mina getting back to Everton might be for Everton getting 17th.

As for Leeds United missing their Swiss Army Knife in Stuart Dallas is a critical blow to the team.I listened to Jesse Marsch implying that Dallas knee injury is not good

I think a lot will depend on how Everton do with their game in hand.

If the Toffees are unable to get a win or at least a point against Chelsea at Goodison Park today then it makes their task of trying to survive in the Premier League all the more awkward.

And if they can't get the full 3 points against whoever their opponents are for that game in hand, then I am afraid that the signs are looking pretty ominous for Frank Lampard.

Especially when you consider that their closing day fixture is away at the Emirates against an in-form Arsenal side.

Jesse Marsch must be quite uneasy about the position Leeds United are now in.

Watford game was a must win for Burnley and they showed their strength in character to come back from a goal down to win 2-1 away from home and deservedly took the 3 points.

Burnley & Leeds both got a boost from sacking their manager - Everton got worse.

But Everton don't have many game's left against team's that still have something to play for (other than Burnley & maybe Arsenal on the last day) - which means they still have a chance to get out of it if their players bother to turn up.

Really it comes down to Lampard needing to prove himself as a manager - he'll never get another Premiership job if he takes them down - basically he's got 6 games left to save his managerial career - it's still in Evertons own hands.

But I think Lampard is a poor manager so it will be bye bye Everton.

Deffo between Leeds and Everton for the drop now, I reckon it'll go down to the last kick of the season at both ends of the it's shaping up to be the best finish to a season for ages.... I hate it when things are all decided with a quarter of the games left to

Looking bad for Everton!! Burnley on πŸ”₯

Looking at the remaining fixtures goal difference may well be the deciding facture. Those heavy defeats at the end of Bielsa's reign may have cost them big time.

Burnley due to schedule and form are favorites for 16th.

Both Everton and Leeds United has to play both Chelsea and Arsenal who are fighting for 3rd and 4th respectively.

Brentford are must wins for both Everton and Leeds United. I say the one who does worse against Brentford which is basically going to plan for summer 2022 transfer window will finish that appalling 18th spot.

I rather face Brentford than Arsenal on the season finale 10/10 times.Arsenal are in a top 4 race against Tottenham.If I was either team.

Burnley defend so well I just don’t see them going down at this point.

At the end of the day you want to see the biggest clubs, with the biggest fans and teams that generate money to the league and towns on away days from tickets sells, travel and audiences that watch on tv. So for me the league is a stronger place with Leeds and Everton in it. But it isn’t going to happen and it’ll be us that lose out due to our small squad, injures all season and no investment in January. Only thing in our favour is the amount of talented youngsters we have that will rip up the championship so we’re be back ALAW MOT πŸ€πŸ’›πŸ’™

Dyche going hasn't helped Burnley as much as their final fixture run-in has. They are playing against easier teams to beat than Everton and Leeds have got to contend with.

As a Leeds fan, feel if Everton get anything from the next 2 games they’ll manage it somehow, we are struggling to score bad

Still amazes me how good Everton looked when Duncan Ferguson was in charge for a few games. If they made him the manager instead of lampard Everton wouldn't be in this situation

Leeds have the tougher fixtures and a bad goal difference - Everton will stay up if they they can get at least a draw with Chelsea - Lose and I don't think they will get the momentum needed to stay up.
Burnley appear to be getting stronger and want to stay up.
My Brain says it's a Toss Up between Leeds and Everton - sorry Frank but you lost the Toss and Everton to be relegated
