6 National Journalists predict which 3 Premier League clubs will be relegated – Interesting outcome

4 years ago

Who will be relegated from the Premier League?

There are 10 matches to go and at least that number of clubs who are still involved in a fight to stay up.

Bournemouth in 11th place have 32 points, only six more than Stoke who are 19th.

Whilst arguably, Everton (34 points) in ninth and Watford (33 points) in tenth aren’t safe either.

An interesting exercise from The Times, with six of their journalists giving their predictions of who will go down, before Saturday’s matches kicked off.

Here is how each of The Times journalists see the bottom three finishing and in what order:

Henry Winter

Stoke, Crystal Palace, West Brom

Matt Dickinson

Southampton, Stoke, West Brom

Oliver Kay

Swansea, Stoke, West Brom

James Gheerbrant

Palace, Huddersfield, West Brom

Paul Hirst

Palace, Stoke, West Brom

Paul Joyce

Southampton, Swansea, West Brom

Little surprise to see all six of them have West Brom to finish bottom.

Stoke are second bottom and have four of the six journalists predicting they will fall.

Then the third one is Crystal Palace, though with only three of the six going for them.

That maybe sums up just how open the relegation fight is this season, as six different clubs get nominated.

Interesting to see though that Newcastle United don’t rate a mention.

Huddersfield are the only promoted club to get a vote (one) and it would be some achievement if all three that came up from the Championship do survive.

How the Premier League looked before Saturday’s matches:

Votes for each club to go down from the six Times journalists:

6 West Brom

4 Stoke

3 Crystal Palace

2 Swansea

2 Southampton

1 Huddersfield
