Win = any lingering danger of relegation gone.

Draw = still probably fine but not fully comfortable. 

Loss = genuinely back in the relegation discussion after we get twatted at Goodison by City and the shite.

Us and Southampton are in similar form, they haven't lost since the start of January. We have only lost to Man City and Liverpool since before Christmas. Put your house on a draw.

Please beat these. They're an absolute shambles.

Got a horrible feeling this is where Pardew starts his miracle run of form. He always seems to pull a run out of nothing and we always seem to hand out of form sides something to play with. Six defeats on the bounce for West Brom and no win in five in the league for us.

I have no idea how he's going to play tomorrow.

The same applies to Brighton if the target of 39 points is good enough? 

If Everton win they may inadvertently drop points (especially away from home) against other relegation strugglers they play in most games.

Brighton play mostly top teams so only one 6 pointer against Huddersfield (H)

Big Fat Sam won't make any concession to the fans and may play two defensive midfielders? Huddersfield & WBA did this on their home ground and both gained set piece home wins.

Current season stats say

1) Brighton are the worst in the Premier League at defending set pieces, especially when the opposition has multiple corners

2) Brighton for two seasons now have been poor at scoring from set pieces

3) Murray and Izquierdo are the only goal scorers away from home with the team equal worse scoring record (with WBA). These goals came from open play, mostly. 

4) The game was 1-1 at the Amex when the game was thrown away with a last minute penalty as the concentration lapsed

5) Calvin-Lewin caused problems in the air for the Albion defence all game

4) Pickford was spectacular in goal for Everton, with flamboyant  saves which a better keeper might have made looked easier

These are the crucial 6 pointers

Huddersfield vs Swansea  (predict  0-0)
Newcastle vs Southampton  (predict 2-1)

 

Home win for West Ham

West Ham vs Burnley  (predict 2-1)

West Ham will be under more pressure to win than Everton, rationally

 

Everton vs Brighton  (unpredictable)

This is a "must not lose" for both clubs.  Bookies are not giving very good odds for a draw.

 

West Brom vs Leicester  (predict 2-1)  Prolong the agony for West Brom.

We've been okay at home to be fair but we're so shit in general I wouldn't go as far to say that we should be able to win today.

No Gana - no win.

Some positives - Baines and Jags back, no Williams or Schneiderlin, Klaassen back on the bench.

This is the most dominant spell I think we've had over anyone since Sam took over. Need to make it count or guaranteed 0-1 to Brighton early second half and us resorting to the Niasse bail out.

Should be winning. Bolasies end product is embarrassingly bad at times. Brighton offering next to no threat but I'd put a small bet on us starting the second half like shite and Glenn Murray scoring before the clock hits 50 minutes.

West Brom 1-1 Leicester

Newcastle 2-0 Southampton

West Ham 0-0 Burnley

Huddersfield 0-0 Swansea with Swans down to ten.

Bolasie suddenly looks class, assists either a Bong own goal or Walcott to put us 1-0 up.

Barnes and Wood both score again for Burnley who lead 2-0 at West Ham. Pressure on Moyes.

Mahrez puts Leicester 2-1 up at West Brom who are surely on their way down.

GOOOOAL and Cenk Tosun scores his first at Goodison after superb link up play with Baines. Unstoppable finish.

Iheanacho makes it 3-1 to Leicester.

Huddersfield yet to find a breakthrough against Swansea despite 75% possession, 28 attempts, 12 on target.

Knockaert straight red for a two footed lunge. Looked harsh on first viewing, but that's always a red these days.

Apparently it's kicking off at West Ham with supporters trying to get at the players and directors box?

Just watching it now, talk of stopping the game.

3-0 Burnley with Hart dropping the ball at Woods feet on his return to the side. Shock horror.

Noble fighting a West Ham fan earlier:

Penalty Everton won by Calvert-Lewin...

Rooney sees it saved by Ryan. That s his third penalty miss of the season, not a bad penalty to be fair but Baines should have taken it.

But Noble bleeds claret and blue and is the greatest midfielder of all time?

Can’t believe they’re invading the pitch at West Ham, don’t they know they’re going to be the biggest club on the planet now they’re in the “fuck the taxpayers” stadium?

If MOTD don't give us a proper run through of what's happened in London I'll be raging.

Huddersfield can't break down Swansea despite having 34 shots xD. They remain 14th and 15th joint on points.

Burnley, Leicester and Everton now 7th, 8th and 9th with three points separating each pair of them. Brighton slip back into the bottom half while West Brom are now 8 points from safety with Palace and Stoke yet to play, and West Ham slip to 16th.

Newcastle's massive win takes them 5 points clear of the relegation zone while Southampton will now slip into the bottom three if Palace or Stoke can win.

Glad we've got those three points today, Tosun looks a proper striker thankfully and while it wasn't stylish it was comfortable and deserved.

30 shots for Huddersfield with only 4 on target is appalling.

Wheels starting to come off for West Ham as they've lost by three goals three weeks in a row. They've got home games against Stoke and Southampton coming up and the poisonous atmosphere developing there won't help them.

The broadcasters have a policy to not show streakers, etc. don't they? I'd be very surprised if they showed it

Fairly easy win, haven't had many of them. 

Brighton are dreadful.

Everton play two wingers which must be encouraging at home. Brighton do the same who also have a poor record on their travels.

Thought the same when they made West Brom look like Barcelona in January. 

Their home form is the only thing that’s stopped them from being marooned at the foot of the table.

Didn't watch the game but have seen the goals.

Vardy's is superb. Made it look ridiculously easy.
