EPL 2012-13: Premier League Game Week 27 Preview

Posted By:

London, Feb 22: Premier League action returns after a break of European action giving other teams to have more time to get their season right. Three teams are on 29 points, Fulham, Norwich and Sunderland, just three points above the relegation zone. Already in the drop zone Reading take on Wigan at the Madejski. A look at the teams form ahead of Game Week 27 of the Barclays Premier League

Fulham vs Stoke City - Craven Cottage

The last time these two sides met at the Britannia Stadium, Fulham were beaten 1-0 by a dominant Stoke side. But the Potters away form will be a worry for Tony Pulis. Their record on the road has been dismal with one win in 22 Premier League games and this season it reads W1 D6 L6.

However, Fulham haven't been getting the results lately with just three wins in 18 league games. The Cottagers are not considered to be in the danger zone despite being only six points above the relegation zone.

Norwich City vs Everton - Carrow Road

Everton haven't been at their best lately, winning one in five games while Norwich last won a league back in December.

In case Everton manage to win and Arsenal slip again, the Toffes will overtake the Gunners to fifth place. But David Moyes' side have dropped more points in the second half of the season.

Norwich have collected just four points since their last win in December and are six points above the drop zone. The Canaries managed to beat Manchester United and Arsenal at Carrow Road and might fancy their chances against Everton.

Reading vs Wigan Athletic - Madejski Stadium

Relegation dwellers Reading and Wigan Athletic will be aware that a win will help them climb out of the relegation zone.

Reading have been in great form lately winning three in their last five league games while are coming off an impressive 4-1 win over Huddersfield in the FA Cup but have not won in any of their last six league games.

West Bromwich Albion vs Sunderland - The Hawthorns

The Baggies could still challenge for a place in the Europa League but a run of one win in seven league games is a poor record for Steve Clarke's men who started the season so well.

Sunderland have lost two in three games lately and like Norwich and Fulham are just six points above the relegation zone. The Black Cats go through a run of good games then lose a few.
