England – Premier League
Date: Friday, 12th April 2019

Finishing just below the top-six would give massive amounts of confidence for next season, to the likes of Leicester, Watford, Wolves, Everton, etc.
Do keep in mind that, with just five match-days remaining, these four are separated by just one point.
The spirit and competitiveness offered by the mid-table sides have long helped the Premier League in becoming one of the, if not the best league competition in the world.
Newcastle needs to hang on for a little while to see out this edition of the tournament.
With 15 points left to play for, they have a buffer of seven points, and two spots to fall on, before touching the relegation line. But it’s to be noted that, the three teams just below them have extra matches in hand.
