Terriers offer relegation value

It’s shaping up to be the tightest relegation tussle in Premier League history, with just six points currently separating 12th from 18th.

West Brom look nailed on to be filling one of the three relegation spots, with the Baggies now 10 points from safety after defeat at Bournemouth last weekend.

But you could make a case for any of at least eight teams to suffer a costly exit from the top flight, with many pundits changing their minds each week as to who is heading for the Championship.

Stoke are currently odds-on (20/67) to join Midlands rivals West Brom in the second tier, with Saturday’s home defeat to Everton damaging their survival hopes.

With fixtures to come against Arsenal, next weekend, Tottenham and Liverpool still to come – it’s starting to look like a bridge too far for Paul Lambert and his squad.

Above Stoke sit Southampton, who currently hold the final relegation place. Saints are hoping for a new manager impact, after appointing Mark Hughes as boss last week.

With the quality of players they have in their squad, Southampton (39/20 to go down) should be able to get themselves out of trouble although a lack of goals is a concern.

The value bet at this stage looks to be the 27/20 on offer for Huddersfield to be relegated, after just one season in the top flight.

David Wagner’s men have built their season around an impressive home record, but collecting just one point from their two recent matches – against Swansea and Crystal Palace – could prove their undoing.

Four of their last seven games are away from the John Smith’s Stadium – with Town losing 10 of their 14 league away games this term – with their last two fixtures of the season coming against Manchester City (a) and Arsenal (h).

Another tempting price is the 12/5 available for West Ham to finish in the top three, especially when you consider the turmoil surrounding the club at the moment.

Five or their remaining eight games are at the London Stadium and although you would normally say that’s an advantage, the anger from the home fans towards the board is likely to have a negative impact.

When the Premier League returns on March 31 following the international break, there will be some crucial games in the battle to stay up.

St James’ Park will be the venue for Newcastle against Huddersfield, while West Ham will play host to Southampton at the London Stadium (Match Odds – West Ham 19/10, draw 43/20, Southampton 8/5).
