Premier League permutations: How Southampton, Stoke, West Brom and others could be affected this weekend...

Who could be the winners and losers in the Premier League this weekend as the battle for top four and to avoid relegation nears its conclusion.
With barely a week to go until the end of the season, the three Premier League relegation spots are yet to be finalised - but that could all be very different by the end of the weekend.
West Bromwich Albion will be relegated if they fail to beat Tottenham at The Hawthorns (Saturday, 3pm), but will go down regardless if Swansea pick up three points at Bournemouth, or if Southampton win at Everton (Saturday, 5.30pm).
Stoke City host Crystal Palace in the early kick-off on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 11.30am, needing a win to guarantee they will end the weekend still in the top-flight.
Because Southampton and Swansea play each other on Tuesday night, live on Sky Sports Premier League, at least one of those teams will reach 34 points, meaning a defeat will relegate the Potters, while even a draw will not be enough if either of those sides win.
And this week's round of games could also finalise the race for Europe. Liverpool will be guaranteed a top-four finish if they avoid defeat at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, another game live on Sky Sports Premier League live from 4.15pm on Sunday.
Tottenham could also guarantee their spot, but will need to win their game at West Brom and hope Chelsea drop points against Liverpool to make it a reality.
