Former Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore believes QPR will get out of trouble, but predicts Hull City, Burnley and Leicester City to face the drop.

Stan Collymore has told Bleacher Report that Hull City, Burnley and Leicester City will be relegated from the Premier League this season.

Collymore believes that Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers will escape the relegation battle, leaving the Tigers, the Foxes and the Clarets doomed.

"In terms of relegation from the top flight, the key teams have each other still to play," he said. "Hull, Leicester, Burnley and QPR's run-ins look horrific, and even Aston Villa still have Manchester City and Tottenham away to play.

"If I had to stick my neck out now, I would say it was Burnley, Leicester and Hull to drop, while QPR and Villa will get out of it by the skin of their teeth."

The Premier League relegation race looks set to go down to the wire, with so many teams within touching distance of each other, and it is sure to be a nerve-wracking end to the season for every team involved.

Collymore clearly believes that QPR and Villa will be able to deal with the pressure better than their relegation rivals, though, and supporters of those two clubs will be hoping his prediction comes true.

QPR and Villa have both improved since appointing new managers and it seems Collymore thinks this decision will benefit them.

Hull, Burnley and Leicester, meanwhile, have all stuck by their current bosses throughout the course of the season, but Collymore doesn't think they will be rewarded for their patience.

At the moment Burnley and Leicester do look in serious danger of facing the drop, as they are the bottom two in the league, but Hull would be disappointed if they were dragged into the relegation spots, as they have spent most of the season above the drop zone.
