Latest results from Premier League relegation battle confirm what Leeds United fans already knew

Heavy defeats for Watford and Norwich brought Leeds United one step closer to Premier League survival. If fans didn’t think the two clubs were destined for relegation before kick-off, they certainly did after two dismal performances.

Manchester City have beaten Watford five times – with Gabriel Jesus bagging four – to cement their position at the top of the league. Top-flight Newcastle picked up a 3-0 victory at Carrow Road and the Canaries remain eight points behind.

Leeds fans won’t be too concerned about the results as the focus is on tomorrow’s crucial double header. Burnley host Wolves looking to capitalize on a huge win over Southampton in midweek while Everton make the daunting trip to Liverpool.

The Toffees secured an unlikely win at Anfield last season but even the most optimistic Everton fans will fear the worst against title hunters Jurgen Klopp. However, if Burnley secure another victory, they will move two points behind Leeds – who travel to Crystal Palace on Monday.

White fans on social media agreed that Norwich and Watford were likely already relegated.

@ProudPeacock123: And then there were 3? Watford and Norwich are down now so between Burnley, Everton and us joining them but I think we are currently the least likely #lufc

@LUFC76ALAW: Well it’s Norwich and Watford down if they weren’t already #lufc #word

@Columbanus13: Saturday work done, just Burnley and Everton lose tomorrow now
