Funny what just one or two weeks can do for a team’s outlook on the season.

The Premier League run-in is here and the business end of the season will provide plenty of drama, as always, during the countdown to the final day on May 23.

When it comes to preserving Premier League status for another year, who needs what? Which teams will be scrapping away in the final seven games of the season?

Our weekly series, the run-in, keeps you fully up to date on all of the different battles going on up and down the Premier League.

Premier League relegation battle: The run-in analysis

Sheffield United has been relegated and Newcastle has eight points from their last 12 available as Steve Bruce’s side have improved massively since Alan Saint-Maximin returned from injury.

West Brom are 10 points from safety with four games left to play. Fulham are only slightly better, nine points adrift. Things are looking bleak.

Burnley have surged up the standings, while Southampton and Brighton have struggled to pick up points in recent weeks. Brighton have a horrible run-in, so if Fulham can get a run together the Seagulls may be looking over their shoulder.
