What the managers have said about the Premier League relegation battle

THE Premier League relegation battle looks set to go down to the wire heading into the final stages of the season.

With Norwich and Watford already relegated, it is between Burnley, Everton and Leeds for the final place in the bottom three.

Everton and Leeds are both in action tomorrow night, going up against Watford and Chelsea respectively.

The Yorkshire club currently find themselves in the drop zone, but they are only behind Burnley on goal difference.

Meanwhile, the Toffees are up to 16th following their 2-1 win at Leicester over the weekend.

But what have the managers said about the relegation battle and their sides’ chances of beating the drop?

Frank Lampard

"As much as we enjoyed the weekend because it got us out of the relegation zone with games to go, it is very dangerous to relax on that,” said Lampard.

“The only message is to finish the job and it is a tough job, we have to expect the worst everywhere else and everyone else to win but we can control ourselves.

"Two wins back-to-back was a big thing for us to break. We have seen with Burnley how a run of wins can change the face of it very quickly so that was important to us."

Jesse Marsch

"Internally, we know we still have a good group to manage these situations,” said Marsch. “We knew coming into these three matches it was going to be very difficult to pick up points.

“We still have too much to play for. Our focus is on controlling every moment. Credit to Burnley and Everton. They have also fought for their lives. We will do the same."

Mike Jackson

“You’ve got to know how to get through setbacks. I have a process and the group will have a process of how we move forward. It takes a bit of time,” said Jackson.

“You’re going to get bits like that, it’s just human nature. They’re not all of a sudden going to become bulletproof.

“But they’ve proved in the four games before they’ve gone through everything – they’ve come from behind, they’ve got pegged back against West Ham.

“They’ve held on to a lead and now they’ve lost a game. We focus on the next one.”
