Premier League Relegation Odds: Promoted trio odds-on for swift Championship return

The outlook looks especially bleak for the Blades and Clarets, who are eight and five points adrift of safety respectively.

However, Luton are scrapping hard against the drop and were replaced in the relegation zone by Nottingham Forest on 18th March after the latter were docked four-point deduction for breaching the Premier League's profit and sustainability rules. The East Midlands club are thought likely to appeal against the sanction

Blades and Clarets in perilous danger

It was expected that the three clubs promoted from the Championship last season would struggle in the top flight, but perhaps not to the extent to which two of them, in particular, have.

Sheffield United are rock-bottom with just 14 points from 28 league games and a miserable goals-against tally of 74, which means that on average the Blades have conceded 2.64 goals per Premier League game. It's easy to see why they are 1/100 for the drop.

Things haven't gone much better for Burnley, who waltzed to the second-tier title under Vincent Kompany but have amassed only 17 points in the big time.

Victory over Brentford has at least given the Clarets some cause for optimism in their survival bid, although they too are long odds-on to make a swift return to the Championship at 1/9.

Points deduction has thrust Forest into danger

Nottingham Forest signed off for the international break with a three-point buffer to Luton but the four-point deduction handed down to them has seen the two sides swap places in the Premier League standings.

It is Forest who now occupy 18th position and they trail the Hatters by a single point.

However, at 4/6, Luton are still a shorter price for relegation than the 11/8 Midlanders with nine games of the season remaining.

The battle between them could go down to the wire and neither are in particularly sparkling form. Forest have picked up just five points since the start of 2024 while Luton have fared only marginally better with seven.

Toffees and Bees seeking breathing room

Everton, deducted six points for their own breach of financial fair play rules earlier this season, have a four-point cushion to the bottom three after Forest's deduction and are 5/1 to be relegated.

Sean Dyche's men have played one game fewer than most of the relegation candidates, too, but they have not won a league game since 16th December, when they beat Burnley 2-0 at Goodison Park.

Brentford are one point and one place above the Toffees but cannot afford to rest on their laurels.

The Bees, who are 16/1 for the drop, have lost 14 of their last 18 Premier League games.
