Looking at the table as it stands and who they have remaining to face, Arsenal could have a huge impact on the relegation battle while at the same time fighting it out for the final potential European qualification spot (depending on how the FA Cup Final goes).
i think the FA cup is the gunners only route to europa league at this point.
edit: i suppose we can still lost the FA cup and finish 7th to make it in.
Wow - I didn't realize how bad it's gotten at Hull City.
incredible bottle job from ForrestWest Brom clinches the other EFL Championship automatic promotion spot with a 2:2 draw versus QPR coupled with Brentford's 1:2 loss to Barnsley. The biggest surprise was Nottingham Forest flaming out with a 4:1 loss to Stoke City. They only needed 1 point out of their final two matches and got none. This, coupled with Swansea City cruising to a 4:1 victory against a Reading side that imploded. As a result, the Swans get the final playoff qualification spot based on having a +9 goal differential versus Nottingham Forest having a +8 goal goal differential. Meanwhile at the bottom of the table, Barnsley won their final two matches to avoid relegation while Charlton Athletic lost 4:0 to Leeds United. So it's Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic, and Hull City that are all relegated to League One for next season.
The promotion playoffs look like this:
-(3) Brentford vs. (6) Swansea City
-(4) Fulham vs. (5) Cardiff City.
First legs of the promotion playoffs will take place July 26 and 27 with the second legs on July 29 and 30. The play-off final will take place at Wembley on August 4.
