Norwich have slipped back into the relegation zone after Sunderland fought out a goalless draw with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
The Canaries and Black Cats are both on 31 points, but an inferior goal difference means Alex Neil’s men occupy the final relegation place going into the last four games of the season.
Survival is now out of Norwich’s hands and with a clash with the Gunners on the horizon, Sunderland are in the box seat to achieve Premier League survival.
Newcastle also picked up a big point at Liverpool on Saturday, but Neil believes it will go right to the wire and is predicting more twists and turns before the season concludes.
“It looks like it is going all the way now,” Neil said. “There are huge amounts to play for and certainly the points tally, with limited games left, you feel it is going to go right to the end.
“Obviously playing Arsenal away at the Emirates is tough but we need to try and take something and then we have two at home and we have to target them and Everton away, whose home record is not great.
“People can talk about the points we need, but two wins and a draw from where we are, I think that will be enough. It is about us. I look at the four games we have got and think we need to win some of those, not who has got who elsewhere.”
