Battle to avoid the final relegation slot in the Premier League

Posted on May 4th, 2019

We are reaching the business end of the season and the relegation fight is still very much on.

Huddersfield were the first team to have their fate confirmed when they were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park back at the end of March. Their return to the Premier League only lasting a single season.

They were swiftly followed by Fulham whose relegation was confirmed by losing 4-1 to Watford at Vicarage Road on the 3rd of April.

There’s a single relegation spot left to avoid, with Neil Warnock’s Cardiff and Chris Hughton’s Brighton being those unlucky enough to have to fight it out with just two games left.

Cardiff are as low as 1/50 to go down, with Brighton 16/1 at Bet365. Before you put any money on these odds, it might be worth going over some of the football betting tips on Top Football Tipster first to give you the best chance of beating the bookie.

Cardiff are the teatime kick off today against Crystal Palace, live on BT Sport 1. Lose that game and it’s curtains. The bookies can’t split the teams, with the home side 18/11 and Crystal Palace 17/10.

Brighton are away to Arsenal, which will be a tough game as Arsenal continue their challenge for a Champions League spot. That game is live on Sky Sports Premier League tomorrow at 4:30pm. The bookies confirm the unlikely away with odds of 33/4

If the battle continues into the final game of the season, Brighton are at home to Manchester City and Cardiff are away to Manchester United in the 3pm kick offs.

Chances are that it’s decided this weekend, but if not, it’s not long until both team’s fate is confirmed

    Such a shame Cardiff didn’t manage to escape relegation, been such a tough year for them with the Sala tragedy, combined with some very unfortunate refereeing decisions which the bigger clubs never seem to be on the receiving end of. Can’t wait for the introduction of VAR, the league will finally be fair. Ultimately though, they did lack the quality to stay up, but they can be proud of their fighting team spirit and hopefully come straight back up next season.
