    I feel like Cardiff will stay up for some reason, Brighton can't seem to buy a win at the moment.

    Cardiff are done. That refereeing performance vs Chelsea killed their last hope.

    Brighton are in freefall but i think that 5pt cushion will see them over the line. Tonights game is massive.

    Sadly the game tonight is at the same time as our game against Barcelona. If Brighton win it is over in any realistic sense. I can see a draw and Cardiff to go down in the end though.

    If they win then it is two points. Cardiff got Fulham and Palace as easier games. Brighton got Newcastle and Wolves. Going to be really tight then I think.

    5 points then Cardiff probably need to get points against Liverpool or us. 8 points then get 10 points and hope it will be enough.

    Lets say Brighton win tonight they move onto 35 points with a game in hand over Cardiff and a 7 point lead, Brightons remaining fixtures though are

    Wolves (a)
    Spurs (a)
    Newcastle (h)
    Arsenal (a)
    City (h)

    Cardiff's remaining fixtures are

    Liverpool (h)
    Fulham (a)
    Palace (h)
    Man Utd (a)

    Yeah probably is done tonight isn't it. While Brighton could easily not win another point all season I dont see 8 points for Cardiff in their remaining games

    Brighton 0-2 Cardiff.

    If this holds I think Cardiff can get 4 points from Fulham away and Palace at home.

    Brighton would need 2 draws or a win to stay up and with those fixtures and their form I'm not certain they'll get it. Even Newcastle at home isn't a gimmee with them winning at Leicester the other night.

    Wow Brighton really look like a sinking ship now, just 2 points from safety with a game in hand

    I think bar catastrophic series of results, the relegation battle is pretty much decided. And Marco Silva managed to loose points vs Fulham :D
