The bottom 10 clubs have now all played 35 games as some of the clubs this week have played their games in hand.
With Burnley drawing at Arsenal, Brighton losing at Tottenham through an 88th goal, and Southampton drawing at Watford – none of those teams below Newcastle won their games in hand.
They were very decent draws by both Burnley and Southampton, but Brighton lost again.
The game with Newcastle at Brighton on Saturday could now be vital for Brighton’s survival.
Chris Hughton – Brighton manager – in some danger of relegation?
The Seagulls are now 3 points above Cardiff but on a positive note – they have a much better goal difference.
Cardiff will need to make up 4 points on Brighton in the final three games, and that could be difficult.
If Cardiff survive, it will have been an unbelievable escape from relegation.
But Brighton have picked up just one point from their last 7 league games and have failed to score a goal during that time.
It’s a terrible time to be in such a slump.
Newcastle must have a decent chance of picking up our third win in a row on Saturday at the Amex Stadium.
