Premier League Relegation Odds

James Budgen

AFC Bournemouth Odds: 8/13

After winning promotion from the Championship for the second time in his short managerial career, Scott Parker is facing another uphill battle to keep a team in the Premier League as his Bournemouth side are favourites to be relegated next season.

The reason Bournemouth are favourites to face the drop is that in the two years they have spent in the Championship, they have lost quite a few players that kept them in the Premier League for five seasons, with Callum Wilson, Steve Cook and Nathan Ake all departing over the past couple of seasons, with not many quality replacement signings as of yet.

The hope for Scott Parker’s side is that they had the best defence in the Championship last season, conceding only 39 goals in 46 games, keeping six clean sheets in their last eight games.

Nottingham Forest Odds: 8/11

After a fairytale promotion push and a win in the play-off final, Steve Cooper and his Nottingham Forest side will face an uphill struggle in their first season back in the top-flight since 1998/99.

What Forest fans will be worrying about is that many of their key players in their promotion push were their loan players and are unlikely to return, with Djed Spence linked to a move to big Premier League sides and new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is looking to keep James Garner for at least the pre-season.

This will make this summer even more important for Forest’s survival hopes, as not only do they have to improve the quality of their existing team, but they also have to replace the multitude of players that they will lose to their parent clubs, but owner Evangelos Marinakis is looking to give heavy investment to allow Steve Cooper to try and beat the odds.

Fulham Odds: 6/5

Fulham are hoping to stop the cycle of promotion to the Premier League followed by relegation straight back to the Championship with their hopes being fueled by how potent their attack was last season, scoring a jaw-dropping 106 goals.

After a historic season in the Championship, scoring 41 goals, Aleksandar Mitrovic will be looking to finally step up and get going in the Premier League, having only scored a combined 14 goals in his two Premier League campaigns with the Cottagers.

Fulham will have to try and replace Fabio Carvalho, who was key in winning them the Championship title last season, as he is off to Liverpool, meaning his replacement will be key if they have any hopes of beating the odds and breaking their cycle.

Brentford Odds: 5/2

After an impressive first season in the top-flight, finishing 13th, Brentford are tipped to struggle in their second season, with the big reason being the likely loss of Christian Eriksen, whose class saved them from a potential relegation battle.

Before Eriksen’s arrival, Brentford were winless in eight league games, losing seven of them and it looked likely they were going to slip into the relegation zone, but after Eriksen’s arrival, they won seven of their last eleven games to end up in 13th place, making his potential loss a huge blow to their potential next season.

What will benefit Brentford next season is that their squad, which had minimal Premier League experience before last season, will be used to the physicality and intensity of the Premier League, which is so valuable compared to the teams that have been promoted and aren’t rich with top-flight experience.

Leeds United Odds: 5/2

Leeds were expected to improve on their impressive first season back in the Premier League, but with injuries to key players and poor recruitment, it took them until the final day of the season to secure safety.

What could change the odds for Leeds’ survival next season is the departure of Raphinha, who was Leeds’ best-attacking player in their two years in the Premier League, and with links to Barcelona, his potential replacement will be key for next season.

What is promising for Leeds is that after links to both Manchester clubs, Kalvin Phillips is set to stay at his boyhood club and after a season filled with injury, when he was fit, Leeds were a much better team with him in it, only losing six times in the twenty games he played in the Premier League last season.

Southampton Odds: 3/1

Despite winning only once in their last 12 Premier League games, losing nine of those games, Southampton didn’t get involved in a relegation battle, but if their form to end the season carries on to next season, the potential to be involved in a survival fight is there.

With no departures expected, Southampton will be looking to add to their current squad rather than looking to replace players, with James Ward-Prowse their priority to keep next season.

His set-pieces single-handedly kept the Saints away from the relegation zone last season, scoring 10 goals and providing five assists in a real captain’s season to keep his boyhood club in the top-flight, and will be needed as much next season to improve their form from the end of the season.

Everton Odds: 9/2

After surprising most people to be majorly involved in the relegation battle, Everton are being looked at differently coming into next season, but are still tipped to stay in the top division with their player quality predicted to keep them safe.

Despite being very close to being relegated, Everton are persisting with Frank Lampard as their manager and are reported to be looking to overhaul their squad with many exits likely to freshen up the squad.

The big miss for a lot of last season was striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who only managed to appear seventeen times in the league and only managed five goals, and will be looking to bounce back next campaign after such a disappointing individual and team season.
