Relegation Watch: Most Important Battles of the Premier League Weekend

This week I really want to focus on the team who have an allergic reaction every time they come close to being in contact with the Championship: Wigan Athletic.

The three teams above them—Newcastle, Norwich and Sunderland—are all locked on 38 points, three points clear of safety with two games to go. But Wigan's season could well be over come Tuesday.

However, the Latics are not actually playing "at the weekend," so they technically should not be included in this article.

Can you see my dilemma here?

So instead of referencing Wigan directly, this is a roundabout way of determining their fate. Here are all the possibilities this weekend could bring for Roberto Martinez to have a chance of the Great Escape No. 73—or however many times it is they have avoided the drop now.

All fixtures, results and league positions taken from BBC.
