There are but 9 weeks left of the Premier League to go and as things are hotting up at the top of the table, things are starting to look very bleak for a handful of teams currently perched to the lower of the table. One of those bleak teams is in fact Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough were only promoted to the Premier League this season, so will they fall victim to the dreadful curse that seems to affect promoted teams, or will they manage to pull off some spectacular moves and unexpected goals to remain in the Premier League next season? Only time will tell but the match between Swansea and Middlesbrough is taking place at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday 2nd April and it is a relegation six-pointer. Swansea are sitting 17th in the table with 27 points, but Middlesbrough are 19th with 22 points – with two games in hand, so if Middlesbrough can pull off two miracle wins, they will jump above Swansea with a 1-point difference.

Kicking off

Saturday 1st April sees Everton travel the very short distance to their rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby and since records began in 1894, Everton have faced Liverpool during numerous competitions and lost 116 matches, drawn 80 and won 82, so Everton have a lot to do if they want to add another win to those records of theirs. Jurgen Klopp seems to be under a bit of pressure from his managers and fans at the moment with Liverpool sitting fourth in the table, but Manchester United have two games in hand over the Reds which if they win, they could jump to 4th and have a 2-point difference.

Chelsea (who are currently dominating the top of the table), welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge – a team who are sitting just outside the relegation zone in 16th place. A win for Crystal Palace would see them move ever closer to the safe zone, so will the 3pm kick-off be a lucky one for them?

Manchester United are playing West Brom and the baggies have a point to prove, but Mourinho’s men seem to be pulling out all the stops to get to the top of the table. At the start of the Premier League, Manchester United could barely manage a draw but they have fought against all the odds and showcased some superb action on the pitch to get them up into 5th position.

Stoke travel to Leicester to take on the Champions League quarter-finalists, but will Vardy pull off a party to win or will the team be focusing on the big competition and fall before the full-time whistle? Leicester City pulled off some serious moves against Sevilla to become one of the last 8 clubs in the competition – alongside mighty giants such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. Will they be able to win? Some people say they don’t have a cat in hells chance of winning, but they also said that about them winning the Premier League – which they did.
