Interesting to look at the Premier League relegation odds after the weekend’s action.
With 26 matches played so far and only 12 remaining, we are really getting to the business end of things.
Chelsea play Watford tonight to complete this round of fixtures and we could really do with Antonio Conte’s players doing us a favour and winning at Vicarage Road.
This would partly make up for their feeble home defeat to Bournemouth which has helped catapult Eddie Howe’s team out of the relegation favourites.
Having beaten Arsenal and Chelsea, plus a draw at West Ham, Bournemouth completed an excellent four game run by beating Stoke, those 10 points from 12 taking them from one of the relegation favourites to 66/1 outsiders now (all Premier League relegation odds below).
If only Newcastle could do that…
This is how the bottom of the Premier League looks on Monday morning:
With 11th to 19th only separated by three points, it is unbelievably tight, whilst Fat Sam is doing everything he can to drag Everton into the relegation fight, despite being heavily backed in the January transfer window.
These are the Premier League relegation odds now for each club:
4/7 West Brom
6/1 West Ham
10/1 Crystal Palace
The bookies making Newcastle fifth favourites to go down and at 2/1, they are making us a one in three chance of being relegated.
With Swansea finding shock wins over Arsenal and Liverpool, similar to Bournemouth, they have given themselves a chance.
It is though looking increasingly likely that Huddersfield and West Brom are clubs that could take up two of three spots, we desperately need Chelsea to beat Pardew’s team next weekend and Bournemouth to keep up their form at Huddersfield.
These are the matches next weekend that feature relegation threatened clubs.
Next weekend sees the following matches:
Chelsea v West Brom
Everton v Crystal Palace
Huddersfield v Bournemouth
Newcastle United v Man Utd
Southampton v Liverpool
Stoke v Brighton
Swansea v Burnley
West Ham v Watford
You have to say that Newcastle have the toughest looking fixture and if they fail to get anything against Man Utd, there is every chance of ending up in the bottom three after that match, as well as quite possibly amongst the three rated by the bookies as most likely to go down.
