Premiership Relegation Update

Southampton 2 - 3 Aston Villa
Southampton were the big losers this weekend among the teams facing relegation from the English Premier League. After getting off to a dream start at home with two goals in the first fifteen minutes, they surrendered three goals to Villa in the second half and may have surrendered their Premiership status as well.

Crystal Palace 3 - 3 Norwich City
The match between the bottom two clubs could have proved decisive and it may yet depending on what happens in the remaining fixtures. Norwich came into the game having secured a historic victory over ManU last weekend. After going down a goal early, they managed to fight their way back to a 1-3 lead early in the second half. Ultimately they couldn't hold off the spirited Eagles from Crystal Palace and had to settle for a draw. Palace will be disappointed not to take full points, but if their comeback inspires them over the remaining matches, they might yet save their season. Norwich needs a miracle, I'm afraid.
