How Premier League relegation run-ins look for Leeds United, Newcastle United, Everton, Brentford, Burnley, Watford and Norwich City

Leeds United will look to hit the ground running under Jesse Marsch and put some much-needed distance between themselves and the bottom three this weekend.

The Whites travel to Leicester City on Saturday as they take on the Foxes at 12.30pm to kick off the weekend's Premier League action.

Up to seven teams are facing realistic prospects of being relegated but with the majority of sides at the lower end of the table having 12 or more games remaining plenty more twists and turns are to be expected.
