Amongst every other thing we now know about the 2017/2018 season of the Premier League, one obvious one is that the league will come to an end after six matchdays.
With 32 game weeks gone, the boys have been separated from the men and the league table has taken shape. After last weekend’s action, here are five things we now know better about the Premier League.
West Brom seem doomed to relegate
Winning just three games all season long is enough to put you right at the bottom of the league. This is a position that the West Brom players, owners, coaching staff and fans have found themselves in. They’ve spent more time at the bottom of the league than any other club did this season.
And after their home loss to Burnley last weekend, their survival hopes got even slimmer. They can’t seem to win games and it’s like it’s only a matter of time before they sink all the way down, into the English Championship.
They only won 2 of their 16 home games this season.
Do you think they can get a good result against Swansea?

Chelsea’s automatic qualification… for the Europa League
Their loss to Tottenham left them a massive 8 points outside the top four. For a team that prides itself in playing in the Champions League, this is a disaster. What’s more? They may even lose key players like Hazard and Courtois should they end up playing anything but Champions League football next season.
Now, they not only need Tottenham to lose at least three games, they also need to get back to winning if they’re to avoid Europa League football next season.

Manchester City’s balance
The Citizens have won the Premier League title. These days, it’s just a matter of how soon it will be confirmed. Pep Guardiola’s men, on their way to a first PL title in Pep’s tenure, struck a balance between attacking and keeping out goals, something that helped them run away with the league title.
This season, they’ve scored 88 goals in the Premier League – the most by any side. They have also conceded 21 goals – the least any side in the league has managed. Maybe it’s not only their beautiful football that’s winning them games. This title winning side is pretty much balanced.
The not-so-talked-about fight between Burnley and Arsenal
Both teams may be five points apart on the table but Sean Dyche’s men, with the way they’re playing, are aiming high. And they will be looking to knock the Gunners off their perch, the 6th position on the log.
It may be a tall order, but given the inconsistencies of Arsene Wenger’s men, their poor away record in the league, and Burnley’s doggedness, you never know what might just happen.
The relegation battle
Playing top-flight football is the aim for every club and its owner. That’s why every team, as much as they can, try to avoid the drop. But three teams in the Premier League, must make way for the other three making their way up from the Championship.
This has led to a massive scramble between clubs like Crystal Palace, Southampton, Stoke City, Huddersfield Town, and Swansea. It has been notoriously tagged as the tightest relegation battle the league has witnessed in recent times.
After the results from MatchDay 32, the battle became even tighter.
They will do all they can to remain in the Premier League.
