The bottom of the table battle in the EPL is red hot this season. One of the most compelling storylines heading into the final couple of weeks of the English Premier League season is the battle at the bottom of the standings to avoid relegation.

The stakes are massive, as teams will literally miss out on tens of millions of pounds in TV and other revenues if they are relegated.

Norwich City was relegated a long time ago and will be sent down at the end of the season.

Three teams - Watford, Aston Villa and Bournemouth - still face the prospect of relegation, while teams like West Ham and Brighton are safe for another season.

Watford is certainly in the driver's seat right now, as they have 34 points with two games left to play in the season.

Aston Villa has 31 points with two games left in the season.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, has 31 points but only 1 game left to play.

-

Watford has games left this season against Man City and Arsenal, which will both be tough contests.

Bournemouth has one lone game left against Southampton.

Aston Villa, on the other hand, has games left against Arsenal and West Ham.
