Watford capitalized in the first of their final five games of the 2019-20 Premier League season by beating bottom club Norwich City 2-1 on Tuesday, meaning that if Norwich lose one more game or Watford get one more point in their remaining four games, Norwich will be relegated to the Championship.

The other three teams in the bottom five — West Ham, Bournemouth and Aston Villa — failed to win this week. West Ham and Aston Villa both lost at home without scoring (0-1, to Burnley, and 0-3, to red-hot Manchester United respectively), while Bournemouth were held 0-0 at home by Tottenham yesterday.

The second of each of the five team’s final five games will be played this coming weekend.

Here are the games the five teams have left to play in the race to avoid the drop from the Premier League.
