Leeds and Burnley are tied on the points, with the Clarets at the moment beating the drop only on the strength of their goal difference, which has been a consistently troublesome metric for United throughout the season.

The distribution of fixtures is skewed such that by the time the final whistle blows on Leeds' home game against Brighton and Hove Albion, Jesse Marsch's side will only have one more shot at changing things - a visit to Griffin Park - remaining, while Everton and Burnley face two further games.

It's incredibly tight - Burnley interim boss Mike Jackson is not the only one who is expecting the fight for survival to go right down to the final day - and with several twists and turns already having vastly changed the picture at the bottom, it's tough to predict which side will eventually lose out.

But all of the relegation candidates have faced their upcoming opponents once before this season - here's how the table would look on the final day if the reverse results are repeated.
