With the FA Cup semi-finals taking place this weekend, it means an abbreviated Premier League programme in which attention on Saturday is focused on the bottom of the table.




Weekend Premier League action

Middlesbrough now face an extremely difficult task to save themselves from relegation, six points from safety although with a game in hand, and they simply have to win away to Bournemouth on Saturday for the first time in the Premier League this side of Christmas.

If Boro could triumph on the south coast, it would potentially drag Bournemouth into the dogfight and give Hull City and Swansea City a target to aim at in their quests to stay up.

As things stand, the most likely scenario is that Sunderland and Middlesbrough will go down along with either Hull or Swansea, but the latter duo look to have potentially winnable home matches this weekend.

Hull have a terrific record at the KCOM Stadium since the autumn and will bid to make it eight wins in their last nine league and cup matches there when they host Watford, who are also much more effective on their own pitch than when they go on their travels.

Swansea host Stoke City in what their manager Paul Clement has described as the club’s biggest match since they were promoted via the play-off final in 2011.

The other three games this weekend all feature clubs in the top seven and Everton would move up to fifth position, albeit having played more matches than all the teams around them, if they could win at West Ham on Saturday.

Then two fixtures that will affect the race for the top four take place on Sunday. Manchester United, who kept their hopes alive when beating leaders Chelsea last weekend, visit a Burnley side with an excellent home record.

Third-placed Liverpool are then in action at Anfield, where they will take on a Crystal Palace side whose recent strong run of results looks to have carried them out of serious relegation danger for the time being at least.
