Each row in the matrix below lists a club’s league matches in chronological order, colour-coded based on how difficult they appear to be. As is also traditional, I’ve been

How difficult are each Championship club’s remaining fixtures?

At the start of the season I used an aggregation of the bookies’ title odds to grade each club’s fixture schedule (here for the nostalgic) and I was recently asked by FourFourTwo to update it for the Premier League run-in: INFOGRAPHIC Which team has got the toughest Premier League run-in?

If you haven’t seen these before, what I’ve done is taken an average of leading bookmakers’ title odds (as a proxy for each club’s “strength”) and then divided the clubs four categories based on the
