Who’s going down from the Premier League?

Is there any chance of Burnley escaping relegation from the Premier League? Bookmakers certainly don’t seem to think so.

If you fancy a flutter, then Código Promocional ESC Online might be worth looking at. It’s among the best casino websites on offer and also includes a range of betting houses – Bwin and Betway will be particularly well known to UK punters, for example.  

A look at some of the football odds shows that bottom side Sheffield United’s plight is so bad that bookmakers are generally not even taking bets on the Blades going down. And as for second-bottom Burnley, they’re odds to go down are typically around 1/16. It looks bleak for Vincent Kompany’s side, who were brilliant in the Championship last season but have been outclassed at a higher level and are surely heading back to the second tier.

With Sheffield United and Burnley on their way out of the top flight, who might also fall through the relegation trap door? The battle to stay up is a hugely exciting one and looks like going to the wire.

Everton and Forest in the mire

With Everton having been docked six points for financial issues and possibly facing further sanctions, the Merseysiders face problems off the pitch and a huge battle on it. They are much improved under boss Sean Dyche and would be in safer territory but for the points deduction, but these are anxious times for their fans.

Nottingham Forest’s big spending has also put them in the firing line when it comes to Financial Fair Play rules – and it hasn’t had the desired effect, with the East Midlands side involved in a battle to stay up. The popular Steve Cooper being sacked as boss paved the way for Nuno Espirito Santo, who has been unable to substantially improve their fortunes. 

Bees struggling

Brentford are hovering precariously above Everton and Forest and have some breathing space but look far from safe at this stage. Injury problems have blighted their season and wins have been hard to come by – even since the return of star striker Ivan Toney from an eight-month ban for breaching Football Association betting rules.

The likes of Rico Henry, Aaron Hickey, Ben Mee, Josh Dasilva and Bryan Mbeumo have been sidelined, and the Bees’ injury worries worsened when captain Christian Norgaard went off during the first half of the defeat at Arsenal.

But Brentford should be OK – largely because of the points deductions seemingly heading Everton and Forest’s way. Both clubs are braced for punishments and that could ultimately keep Thomas Frank’s team in the Premier League.
