Premier League latest odds: Top four battle and relegation round-up

| 08.05.2018

It’s the final week of the Premier League season, but everything is still on the line for a number of teams.

A few weeks ago, the top-four fight and relegation battle looked sewn up, but a remarkable run of results has changed all that.

Chelsea’s 1-0 win versus Liverpool has forced the Champions League race wide-open. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds may be in this season’s final, but they could yet miss out next season.

Three points separate Liverpool in third with Chelsea in fifth, and the Blues have a game in hand. But the Reds have a vastly superior goal difference.

Also favouring the Anfield side is the fixtures. They host Brighton & Hove Albion on the final day and a home win would seal the deal. Chelsea head to Newcastle United and former boss Rafa Benitez.

Tottenham Hotspur are also in the picture, and they end with home games against the Magpies and Leicester City.

With all of that in mind, Antonio Conte’s men remain the outsiders at 7/2. Both Liverpool and Spurs are a confident 1/12.

At the bottom, it’s still possible for West Bromwich Albion to stay up.

Amazingly, Darren Moore’s side beat Spurs 1-0 at the weekend and then saw Everton bag a last-minute equaliser versus Southampton to keep their hopes alive.

The Baggies have now beaten both Spurs and Manchester United, plus a draw with Liverpool since Moore took charge. But they have a lot to do and need a lot of luck to stay in the top tier.

They must hope that tonight’s game between the Saints and Swansea City is a draw, and then hope they both lose next weekend while West Brom beat Crystal Palace.

Even then that might not be enough unless they overhaul a four-goal swing on Southampton.

Put all that together, and it’s not surprising they’re still 1/250 to go down, and 25/1 to survive.

There’s Evens for Southampton to go down, with Swansea at 11/8. Tonight’s meeting is pretty much a winner-takes-all scenario.

Huddersfield Town aren’t safe either, although the Terriers picked up a potentially precious point at Manchester City on Sunday.

They sit three points above Southampton and Swansea, and we’re 5/1 for the Yorkshire side to go down and 1/9 to stay up.

There are a number of ways they could end up in the bottom three, and their final two games are against Chelsea and Arsenal.

But David Wagner’s men will be safe if Southampton and Swansea both fail to collect at least three points from their final two games.
