Let's start with Chelsea facing Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.
If Chelsea wins or the game ends in a draw, the Blues will remain in third place while Arsenal will remain in fourth place. If Tottenham wins, the Blues will remain in third on goal differential while Spurs will move into fourth place with each team having two games to play.
In other words, Arsenal fans will be Chelsea fans on Wednesday.
It would probably be unwise to assume a win for Chelsea and Tottenham this weekend, however. While Spurs should be able to handle Stoke City, the Blues have a tough matchup against an Aston Villa team that is fighting to avoid relegation, has won its last two games and lost just twice in the last eight games.
Plus, the game is at Villa Park. Chelsea will be tested on Saturday.
The relegation battle will begin on Monday, as 17th-place Sunderland takes on 11th-place Stoke City. With just 40 points on the season, however, Stoke isn't in the clear in terms of relegation just yet. On Tuesday, 18th-place Wigan will look to battle its way up the table at home in a winnable game against Swansea City.
Sunday will feature a pair of key relegation contests, as 16th-place Newcastle will travel to Loftus Road to face cellar-dwellers Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland will face 14th-place Southampton.
