Plenty of contenders in Prem relegation scrap

320

The Premier League resumes following the international break this week and for the teams at the bottom the focus will again be on the survival fight.

Just four points separating the bottom seven and plenty of clubs will be wary of getting caught in the battle to stay up.

Fulham to be relegated @ 4/7

Bottom-placed Fulham have the toughest challenge to get themselves out of trouble after a dismal start.

The Cottagers have replaced Slavisa Jokanovic with Claudio Ranieri as manager but with just five points on the board they looked doomed despite spending big over the summer.

Optimistic fans will point to performances being better than the results suggest but hard-luck stories can only last so long. They have talent in the squad, though, and Ranieri should bring in a positive approach.

Huddersfield to be relegated @ 5/12

Cardiff to be relegated @ 1/2

The other two teams in the bottom three, Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City, also have relegation material written all over them.

Despite signs of life in recent weeks, with the Terriers finally getting their first win on the board against Fulham and the Bluebirds also beating the hapless Cottagers and Brighton, it’s hard to imagine either side picking up enough wins to stay out of the drop zone.

Newcastle not to be relegated @ 4/19

A couple of weeks ago, Newcastle will have been mentioned alongside Fulham, Cardiff and Huddersfield as candidates for the drop but two wins on the trot now have the Magpies looking up rather than down. They may still end up getting dragged into the relegation equation but boss Rafa Benitez should have enough tactical acumen to steer them clear.

Southampton and Crystal Palace will be worried after poor starts but both sides have plenty of Premier League experience in their ranks and are more equipped than those below them to stay out of trouble.

Burnley are 20/33 not to be relegated and should pick up after a difficult start as they look to avoid the drop.
