Matchday 6 brought absolutely no change for the bottom four as none of them recorded any point on the day. Everton had no game while Yeovil, West Ham and Brighton were beaten with Brighton suffering a goal difference disaster with a 6-0 defeat at home to title contender Man City.
Due to the 11 teams format this season, Everton was the team with a bye and did not lose any ground on the other relegation contenders. Definitely a positive week for them as they have multiple games on hand on other contenders.
Yeovil are still stuck with 0 point but were close to gain one in the West Country derby losing late to Bristol City 2-1.
West Ham are not in the relegation zone at the moment but could be sucked in if their form does not improve a bit as they are four points clear of the relegation which is a big gap but they need to get some points soon. Brighton had the worse result from the bottom four and it was no surprise as they had the hard task of playing a City team that needed to win to stay in touch with the runaway leaders Arsenal. The Seagulls 6-0 defeat push their goal difference close to Yeovil’s one.
Yeovil 1 Bristol 2

8 West Ham 4 pts pl 5 -7
9 Everton 2 pts pl 4 – 5
10 Brighton 1 pt pl 6 -11
11 Yeovil 0 pt pl 5 -14
Matchday 7 will be critical for the bottom four as they all play each other with Brighton at home to Yeovil and Everton at home to West Ham. Any winner in those two games will strike a huge psychological blow to their opponents
