Frank Lampard Derby County 2018-19
Three teams are vying for a spot in the top six on the final day but Frank Lampard's Rams are in pole position ahead of Middlesbrough and Bristol City

Norwich City and Sheffield United have secured their places in the Premier League for the 2019-20 campaign.

Three of the four play-off spots are set too with Leeds, West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa assured of a top six finish.

A further three teams are vying for the final position on the final day of the campaign and Derby County are the frontrunners at 2/5 (1.40) with bet365.

The Rams have a one-point advantage and a superior goal difference over Middlesbrough, and another point in hand compared with Bristol City.

Frank Lampard's men are 19/20 (1.95) to seal their play-off place with a win over a West Brom side that could rotate their side with a top six berth already secure.

Derby have already beaten the Baggies once this term, romping to a 4-1 win at the Hawthorns, and another victory of any margin will ensure Lampard's men are involved in the play-off picture.

Middlesbrough are 8/11 (1.73) to get the better of relegated Rotherham at the New York Stadium but Tony Pulis' side are 9/4 (3.25) to do enough to make sixth position. The visitors have struggled for goals all season with just 47 strikes to their name – only three teams have managed fewer and two of those are headed for League One.

Finally, Bristol City can be backed at an industry best 16/1 (17.0) with bet365 to make an unlikely surge up the table and into the play-off places.

That would require the Robins to beat Hull City - an 11/8 (2.38) shot - plus neither of the two teams above them winning their respective clashes.

At the top of the division Norwich are 1/5 (1.20) to seal the title. A point against Aston Villa would be enough for the Canaries to be crowned champions while Sheffield United can be backed at 7/2 (4.50) to leapfrog the East Anglian side into top spot.
