There's plenty to play for in the Barclays Premier League this weekend as five teams fight to beat the dreaded drop.

With West Ham already relegated, any two from Wigan, Blackpool, Birmingham, Wolves and Blackburn could join them on what has been dubbed 'Survival Sunday'.

Blackpool travel to title winners Manchester United, with Sir Alex Ferguson confirming he will field a side full of senior players - contrary to reports suggesting otherwise.

Wigan, meanwhile face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium, although they will be wary of the result at Old Trafford as well as the proverbial six-pointer between Wolves and Blackburn.

Elsewhere, three points for Tottenham against Birmingham will seal a spot in the Europa League next season and potentially send the Blues into the npower Championship.


Liverpool will be hoping Alex McLeish's side can get a result at White Hart Lane with the Reds attempting to usurp Spurs by beating Aston Villa.

Manchester City can claim third place with a win at Bolton, while Arsenal can put pressure on their rivals by beating Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Newcastle and West Brom will battle for a place in the top half at St James' Park and Sunderland travel Upton Park hoping to put a final nail in West Ham's coffin.
