Premier League Weekly: Sunderland could be relegated tomorrow, but Crystal Palace and Stoke City will pick up wins

THE bulk of PREMIER LEAGUE WEEKLY arrived early yesterday with a look ahead to the bore-fest that was the Manchester derby.

And the goalless draw was certainly a pale shadow of those five classic derbies I mentioned!

But action resumes on the field tomorrow with some mid-table affairs and other clubs still sweating about their Premier League futures.

 

Adam’s Saturday scores

 

SOUTHAMPTON 2 HULL 0

HULL have made a superb charge to avoid relegation under Marco Silva, but it has been built almost entirely on their home form. I don’t see that changing on the South Coast.

 

STOKE 2 WEST HAM 1

THESE two teams have possibly the biggest Jekyll-and-Hyde personalities in the Premier League. Calling this one seems impossible, as anything could happen, but Stoke may shade it.

 

SUNDERLAND 1 BOURNEMOUTH 1

SUNDERLAND could be relegated tomorrow. I don’t see that happening but I don’t see them winning either. David Moyes may need a tin hat for his own safety at the Stadium of Light.

 

WEST BROM 2 LEICESTER 2

AGAIN we have another match where all three results are very possible. Mathematically, Leicester are not out of trouble but they won’t go down and it could be a high-scoring draw as West Midlands meets East Midlands.

 

CRYSTAL PALACE 2 BURNLEY 0

BURNLEY are still looking over their shoulders after a bad recent run. They haven’t won away all season and Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha will have too much for them at Selhurst Park.

Stat of the Day

44.63 – THE average number of points accrued by Tony Pulis’ sides during his eight previous seasons in the Premier League.

With five games to go this time, Pulis’ West Brom have 44 points already and lie in eighth place.

He has never finished higher than 11th and never got more than 47 points, so both those targets should be in his sights.
