Relegation Norwich's relegation back to the EFL Championship was confirmed after their 4-0 loss to West Ham on July 11th. Currently, both Watford and Bournemouth join them in the relegation places heading into the last game of the season. Aston Villa in 17th are the only other team who have a possibility of being relegated this season after Brighton and West Ham secured their safety during the week. Aston Villa Aston Villa take on West Ham at the London Stadium, having not won on the road since their New Year's Day 2-1 win v Burnley. Since then, three draws and four losses have followed in their away games but Villa will need to match Watford's result in their game against Arsenal to guarantee a finish above the Hornets. If they lose to West Ham, they will then be relying on Watford to lose and the Cherries not to win if they are to avoid an immediate return to the Championship next season. Watford Watford play Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium a week on from sacking their most successful Premier League manager, Nigel Pearson, who had dragged the club up to 17th place having been 7 points adrift from safety in December. For the Hornets, they will need to better Aston Villa's result to see them guaranteed to retain their top flight status for another year by the skin of their teeth. If Watford and Aston Villa both win, Watford will have to do so by 2 goals more than Villa do, or should both sides lose, Watford would have to do so by 2 goals less than Villa do to survive on goal difference unless Bournemouth win their game. If both sides draw, the Hornets would end their five year stay in the Premier League Bournemouth Bournemouth's loss against Southampton means that they need a win versus Everton at Goodison Park, and need both Aston Villa to lose against West Ham and Watford to lose against Arsenal. Anything less than a win for The Cherries will see them end their top flight run after 5 seasons. Tie-Breakers Aston Villa v Bournemouth If Aston Villa lose and Bournemouth win, both sides would end the season on 34 points. Bournemouth would finish ahead of Villa by virtue of goal difference.
