Update: 09.12.20

With most sides having played eleven rounds of fixtures, Sheffield United sit firmly at the foot of the table with just a single point to show for their efforts. The Blades have looked very much out of their depth for much of the season and many pundits believe that their time in the top-flight will come to an end at the close of the current campaign.

The bookmakers are of a similar opinion with most firms going a general 2/5 that Chris Wilder’s men find themselves in the Championship next term. It’s hard to escape this conclusion given their precarious position at the foot of the table and now that they sit five points adrift, it’s hard to see how they are going to close the gap anytime soon.

The Blades aren’t favourites for relegation however, this unwelcome accolade belonging to West Bromwich Albion who sit second from bottom in the Premier League table. The Baggies have managed just one win from their first eleven league games and they are a general 4/11 punt to be relegated straight back to the Championship at the first time of asking, slightly ahead of Fulham who are 2/5 for the same.

The only other side at odds-on for relegation are Burnley, the Lancashire outfit helping their cause slightly by avoiding defeat in three of their last four league games with one win during this time. The Clarets sit third from bottom in the Premier League table and most bookmakers have them chalked-in at 10/11 for relegation at the end of the season.

Having miraculously staved off relegation at the end of 2019/20, Aston Villa have been enjoying some excellent Premier League form in recent weeks. League wins over Sheffield United (1-0) and Fulham (0-3) in their opening two matches were followed by a sublime 7-2 hammering of Premier League champions Liverpool at Villa Park in their final outing before the international break.

These excellent results have resulted in the bookmakers substantially lengthening the odds on Aston Villa being relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season, the Midlands club now as long as 13/1 for the drop having been just 7/4 at the start of the campaign.

Aston Villa have managed to do some inspired business in the summer transfer market, the latest addition to the squad being Ross Barkley who has arrived on loan from Chelsea. The 26-year-old will be a boost to Villa’s midfield and will add to their threat going forward.

Other shrewd signings include the likes of Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash and Ollie Watkins, all of whom have played a positive part in Villa’s excellent start to the Premier League campaign.

Dean Smith’s men have also had their odds slashed for a finish in the Premier League top ten, the bookies now going as low as 5/4 that they finish in the top-half of the Premier League table. Indeed some firms go as low as 17/1 that they even manage to haul themselves into the top four at the close of the campaign.
