Having been in a position of relative strength in the battle to avoid Premier League relegation, Blackburn are back in danger after five successive defeats pushed them back into the bottom three. The Lancashire outfit are three points adrift with just 12 points left to play for in the relegation run-in. And their final fixtures are made to look even more daunting as they face away games at Tottenham and Chelsea before the campaign comes to an end. While most of their rivals are picking up points, Blackburn appear to have run out of steam at the worst possible time.
Norwich fell to their heaviest defeat of the season against Manchester City last weekend, but the 6-1 defeat has failed to take away the feel-good factor after a successful season. The Canaries have already beaten the drop and could even finish as the highest-placed side out of the promoted trio from last season.
• Norwich have scored 15 headers in the Premier League this season, more than any other team, while Blackburn have conceded the most (16).
