Barring a miraculous finish to the season in the West Midlands, West Bromwich Albion is headed back to the Championship.

[ RECAP: Brighton 1-1 Spurs ]

Stoke City and Southampton need a lot of help to avoid their fates, too, in what was once an incredible logjam in the race to avoid the drop.

How can relief come to the Potters and Saints? Well, to get alliterative: Winning in Wales. Both sides face Carlos Carvalhal‘s Swansea City, whose five-point advantage on both could shrink with consecutive matches against Man City and Chelsea before Bournemouth and the aforementioned battlers.

Huddersfield is seven points clear but has a rough run-in, facing Man City, Chelsea, and Arsenal over the final eight days of the season. We’ll include them, but the Terriers’ desperation could be enough against at least one of those sides: Only Arsenal could have their European qualification in jeopardy if Burnley stays hot and Atletico Madrid knocks the Gunners out of the Europa League.

Crystal Palace (34 points) and West Ham (35) could still be dragged into the fray by losing out and seeing Stoke, Saints, or Swans get hot, but the focus should be on those teams in 17th, 18th, and 19th as of post time.

Let’s take a look at the run-ins for the teams still without solid footing for the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Stoke City — 28 points, four matches left, minus-33 GD
Sunday – vs. Burnley
April 28 – at Liverpool
May 5 – vs. Crystal Palace
May 13 – at Swansea City

Southampton28 points, five matches left, minus-20 GD
Thursday – at Leicester City
April 28 – vs. Bournemouth
May 5 – at Everton
May 8 – at Swansea City
May 13 – vs. Manchester City

Swansea City 33 points, five matches left, minus-19 GD
April 22 – at Manchester City
April 28 – vs. Chelsea
May 5 – at Bournemouth
May 8 – vs. Southampton
May 13 – vs. Stoke City

Huddersfield Town — 35 points, four matches left, minus-27 GD
April 28 – vs. Everton
May 6 – at Man City
May 9 – at Chelsea
May 13 – vs. Arsenal

Saints perhaps have the most hope, and will likely be ahead of Swans on goal differential and two points behind if it can win a derby versus Bournemouth. It would then have to win at Swans, hope Stoke does the same, and minimize damage at the hands of a Man City side playing out the string at a what would be a raucous St. Mary’s.

Huddersfield Town 1-0 Watford: Ince strikes late

Leave a comment
  • Three total shots on target
  • Ince puts Town’s only one in the goal
  • Terries now seven clear

Tom Ince‘s stoppage time goal was Huddersfield Town’s only shot on target, but they won’t care after picking up a potentially huge 1-0 win over Watford at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

The win boosts the Terriers into 14th place, seven points clear of the drop. Watford is in 12th, three ahead of Town.

Town’s Rajiv Van la Parra had the first real chance of the game deflected over the bar for what would be an unsuccessful corner kick.

Abdoulaye Doucoure had a strong strike deflected past the reach of Jonas Lossl, who might’ve just had the post covered as the ball skittered into the side netting.

Premier League roundup: Pogba stars in derby; Merseyside snoozer

Leave a comment

Double Derby Day started with a snooze and ended with Manchester snapping the day awake with Manchester United’s comeback win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

All that and more inside the Saturday roundup.

Manchester City 2-3 Manchester UnitedRECAP

The hosts looked comfortable and dominant in building a 2-0 halftime lead on goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan, but perhaps the pressure of knowing a derby win would clinch the league title was too much to handle for the blue side of Manchester.

Paul Pogba scored two goals in 97 seconds, Chris Smalling snatched a match-winner, and Alexis Sanchez played a role in all three goals as Jose Mourinho’s men stymied City’s title hopes for the time being with a thrilling 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Everton 0-0 Liverpool — RECAP

Sam Allardyce‘s Toffees couldn’t finish their chances against a “B Team” Liverpool which still controlled the ball and outshot Everton 10-6 in a dull Merseyside Derby draw.

 

Watford 1-2 Burnley RECAP

The Clarets won their fourth-straight in ensuring their status as a Europa League participant if seventh place qualifies for the tournament. Sam Vokes and Jack Cork scored twice in three minutes to lead a comeback after Roberto Pereyra put the Hornets in front. Burnley is six points clear of Leicester with six matches each to play.

Stoke City 1-2 Tottenham HotspurRECAP

Christian Eriksen had a goal and an assist, and Harry Kane also started and scored as Spurs insured their Top Four hopes with a win at relegation-threatened Stoke City. Paul Lambert‘s men got a goal from Mame Biram Diouf, but are four points back of safety.

Leicester City 1-2 Newcastle United RECAP

Rafa Benitez never got his star striker in the transfer market, but has turned Newcastle United into a likely Premier League participant next season with terrific defense and creative play. Chelsea loanee Kenedy again starred, Jonjo Shelvey and Ayoze Perez both scored wondeful goals, and the Magpies moved into 10th, 10 points clear of the drop zone with a win. Jamie Vardy scored late to ruin Martin Dubravka‘s shutout.

 

Bournemouth 2-2 Crystal Palace — RECAP

Lys Mousset and Joshua King each scored equalizers, the latter quite late in the match, as Bournemouth managed a point against Roy Hodgson‘s resilient Eagles. Wilfried Zaha and Luka Milivojevic each scored stunners for Palace.

West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Swansea CityRECAP

Jay Rodriguez scored for caretaker manager Darren Moore, but Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham nabbed a point for 15th place Swans. The Welsh side finishes the day four points clear of the drop zone.

Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Huddersfield TownRECAP

A quarter hour with a man advantage wasn’t enough for Huddersfield Town to complete its comeback bid at the Amex Stadium. Solly March scored early for hosts Brighton, who saw Davy Propper sent off for a tackle on Jonathan Hogg after the Gulls gifted an equalizer to Steve Mounie.

Brighton 1-1 Huddersfield Town: 10-man Terriers hold

  • Propper sent off
  • March scores early
  • Mounie takes Brighton gift

Steve Mounie scored an equalizer but Huddersfield Town could not take advantage of 10-man Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

Solly March scored early for Brighton before Davy Propper was sent off en route to a point that has them seven points clear of the drop.

Huddersfield’s point has them four clear of 18th place Southampton.

Propper’s miserable day started when he missed a first-minute break, played through on goal within 20 minutes but firing wide of Jonas Lossl‘s goal.

And Lossl stopped a 1-2 between Jose Izquierdo and Glenn Murray which put the Colombian in on goal inside of 15 minutes.

Solly March put Brighton ahead with a low bounding shot that Lossl slapped off the goal post and just over the line.

Standout Brighton defender Shane Duffy handed the score line back to Huddersfield, playing to his keeper than instead went to Mounie for 1-1.

Propper was sent off for a sliding studs-up tackle on Jonathan Hogg, piling into the Terrier’s ankle with just over a quarter hour to play.
