The battle at the bottom is getting tense. Saturdays results will have a big impact on just who survives.

Week 36 starts us off with the following fixtures.

Everton v Bournemouth

Newcastle v Crystal Palace

Stoke City v Sunderland

Watford v Aston Villa

West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United

Arsenal v Norwich

The Saturday is all about the relegation battle.  Newcastle really are in must win mode but face their former manager in Alan Pardew and former star player in Yoyan Cabaye.  Sunderland travel to out of form Stoke but its poor Norwich that on paper have the toughest task with a trip to Arsenal.

Andros Townsend will be in many a team this week and with the Magpies needing the win is likely to shoot to on site.  

Elsewhere the anyone playing Villa theory gets a test as they travel to Watford side in almost as bad a form as their own.  If this was played in January Odion Ighalo would have been a must but the player has gone ice cold in form himself.  Villa at Watford  seems the perfect fixture to see him back with a brace.    

Roberto Martinez may be a manager already knowing he is gone at the end of the season or he may not.  Whatever he need to get his side back to sinning ways.

Finally WBA's parked bus may or may not be the plan to stop the fantasy machine that is Dimitri Payet.
