Very fierce race at the bottom of the table, Southampton are last with 15 points, 3 less than Bournemouth and Everton. Leeds are 17th on 19 points, one less than 16th placed West Ham. Who is going down is everyone’s guess at this point.

Team of the Week

As expected, two players from surprise winners Leicester(Iheanacho and Maddison), two from Brighton(Estupinan and March), two from Fulham(Andreas Pereira and Ream) and two from Man Utd(Shaw and De Gea). Alexander Arnold and Ivan Toney complete the lineup.
