Momentum is a huge factor at this time of the season at the top and bottom of the table. Looking back to last Saturday’s game between West Brom and Cardiff, with a minute to go I was thinking Cardiff were in huge trouble. West Brom looked like they’d go six points clear of them and it would be backs against the wall for Cardiff. All of a sudden though, Cardiff got to the other end of the field and scored. In that one moment you almost felt that even though West Brom stayed above Cardiff in the table, they’d lost the momentum and Cardiff had gained something even if they hadn’t in terms of the actual points margin.
Cardiff are probably the most likely to get out of trouble. I felt earlier in the season that they’d stay up, even before Ole Gunnar Solskjær got the job. I have to say I’ve doubted that a couple of times in the last few weeks but I thought last weekend was a big one for them in getting that point and not letting West Brom get away from them.
Fulham are in big trouble. Even though they played well in the first half last weekend, Everton didn’t need to be at their best to beat them 3-1. Sunderland’s game on Monday night was one that they will have been looking at as one they must win. I look at the fixtures that they have left and although they’ve got a couple of games in hand, I worry.
