Fulham – Sheffield United: A bottom-three scrap is a must-win six-pointer for both Fulham and Sheffield United at Craven Cottage on Saturday (start time 3pm ET online via Peacock Premium).
Scott Parker’s Cottagers can pull within a win of 17th-place Newcastle by beating the Blades on Saturday.
A win means Sheffield United can potentially escape the basement. Blades are two points back of 19th-place West Brom, who visits Burnley earlier in the day.
It’s a huge one for the relegation picture. A Fulham win drags several teams into Premier League concerns. Anything less might just settle the scene at the bottom barring the greatest of great escapes.

Fulham has a win, three losses, and nine draws since Dec. 13, not enough wins to save their season but relief is in sight if some wins do arrive and Newcastle, Burnley, Brighton, or Palace underachieves. Sheffield United has lost two-straight but won three-of-five after going 17 matches without a win. Fulham 1-1 Sheffield United.
