10 UP 5 Bournemouth: Eddie Howe has worked wonders at the Vitality Stadium as the injury-depleted Cherries are up to 38 points and surely safe for next season.

13 UP 1 West Bromwich Albion: Saido Berahino is finally back in the side and showing flashes of his form from last season with the Baggies still in the hunt for a top-ten finish.

source: 16 UP 2 Norwich City: Some solid performances have seen the Canaries climb out of the relegation zone, with their next three matches against sides also fighting for survival.

17 DOWN 2 Sunderland: Jermain Defoe has six goals in his last ten appearances and must continue scoring to keep Big Sam’s men up.
