Relegation is the most dreaded fate in any league, it’s even harder to bear for Premier League sides so the prospect of going down most definitely instills a bit of fright into the hearts of the unfortunate teams involved.

Surprisingly the newly-promoted sides don’t seem to be in any real danger of being drawn into a last gasp relegation battle, although Norwich City have their work cut out in terms of the race for survival.
