The battle for European qualification looks set to go down to the wire following Arsenal's victory over Southampton on Wednesday.

As a busy programme of fixtures continues, Press Association Sport assesses which teams could be the big winners and losers.

:: CHELSEA will clinch the title if they win at West Brom on Friday.

:: Even if they surprisingly drop points, they will be crowned on Sunday unless second-placed TOTTENHAM, facing Manchester United, better their result. The Blues will also have another chance at home to Watford on Monday.

:: Should ARSENAL lose at Stoke on Saturday and MANCHESTER UNITED fail to win at Spurs, then a victory for LIVERPOOL away at West Ham on Sunday would secure a top-four finish for Jurgen Klopp's side.

:: HULL will be relegated alongside Sunderland and Boro if they lose at Crystal Palace on Sunday and SWANSEA beat Sunderland on Saturday.

:: A draw would secure safety for Palace as well as WATFORD and BURNLEY, who would be out of reach of Hull. The pair can also control their own destiny with a point in their respective fixtures - Watford travel to Everton on Friday while the Clarets are in action on Saturday at Bournemouth.
