Who will get relegated from Premier League 2019/20 season?

    The Premier League title race of 2019/20 season is literally over with Liverpool holding on to a 25-point lead over Manchester City with 9 games left to play in the season.

    However, there is plenty to look forward when the season resume in May as six teams battle to survive in the top topflight. Yet, the EPL will not be restarting before June if the sources are to be trusted.

    Mathematically, it is only 12 points that separate 10th placed Burnley from 17th placed Watford. However, unlike last season, 40+ points will be needed for safety in the current campaign.

    This means, teams starting from 14th placed Southampton are close to safety. The Saints have 34 points after 29 games, and it will not make any sense to assess they cannot pick another 6 or 7 points from the remaining 9 games.

    This narrow down the relegation battle to six teams, from 15th placed Brighton with 29 points to Norwich at the foot of the table with 21 points.

    Let us analyze their remaining games one-by-one before finding the best Premier League football betting relegation odds to cash on. Also, keep in mind that the fixtures will come thick and fast once the season resume post-covid-19 threat in May.

    15th ) Brighton – 29 Points.

    The Seagulls sit at 15th with 29 points and they are without a win in calendar year 2020. Despite them not winning once in last 9, they managed to pick up 6 draws during this period, which is a positive.

    However, it is worth to note that they were in a similar situation last season and with some good fortune they avoid drop despite picking just 3 points all from draws in their final 9 matches of the season.

    They have some tough fixtures to follow, and they might not pick any point against the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester rivals. Meantime, Leicester and Burnley are all tough places for visitors. It is sensible to believe that they may not be in the Premier League next season.

    • Difficulty of Home Fixtures: High
    • Difficulty of Away Fixtures: High
    • Chance of Relegation: Very High

    16th ) West Ham – 27 Points.

    The Hammers are one of the three teams locked at 27 points and stay above the relegation waters based on a superior goal-difference.

    Coming to the core of the subject, if you look at their remaining games, they have the easiest oppositions amongst the relegation candidates. Most importantly, the are yet to face the bottom two sides along with Watford. But they must do what they failed to do so far, that is winning games.

    The Hammers have enough quality in their squad, points from these games along must save their season, also, they tend to do well against teams sitting below them.

    • Difficulty of Home Fixtures: Low
    • Difficulty of Away Fixtures: Moderate
    • Chance of Relegation: Low

    17th ) Watford – 27 Points.

    The Hornets did have a decent start under Nigel Pearson, but they went into quarantine period on the back of just 1 win from 7 games. Truth to be told, they had some winnable fixtures during that period and the one they one was against the league leaders Liverpool.

    Just like the Hammers, the Hornets have a talented and experienced squad, but they must bring some consistency to their game. Expect Manchester City, the other four remaining home fixtures are favorable, considering Leicester do not have a good record at the Vicarage Road. Meantime, the away trip to West Ham will be key, which indeed is like a cup final.

    • Difficulty of Home Fixtures: Moderate
    • Difficulty of Away Fixtures: High
    • Chance of Relegation: High

    18th ) Bournemouth – 27 Points.

    The Cherries are known for making good start of the season and then vary off towards the tail end. Last season, they managed a humble 12 points from the last 13 games. The situation they are currently in, requires more.

    Home fixtures are moderately easy, but the away fixtures are extremely tough, and they may end up below 40-point mark this season.

    • Difficulty of Home Fixtures: Moderate
    • Difficulty of Away Fixtures: Very High
    • Chance of Relegation: Very High

    19th ) Aston Villa – 25 Points.

    Aston Villa do have an extra fixture as in comparison to other six teams in discussion. However, this is not going to be an added advantage as 5 of their six remaining visitors to Villa Park are sitting above top 10.

    The rest of away fixtures are equally tough, and one must assume they are going back to Championship next season.

    • Difficulty of Home Fixtures: Very High
    • Difficulty of Away Fixtures: Very High
    • Chance of Relegation: Very High

    20th ) Norwich City – 21 Points.

    Daniel Farke’s men hardly did anything to convince us that they deserve to remain in Premier League beyond this season. The Canaries remain at the foot of the table with the worst defensive record in the league.

    They do have some favorable home fixtures to follow, however even winning all 5 of them will not help their course. Norwich hardly pick any points on the road and they are the team with highest chance to end up in EFL Championship next season.

    • Difficulty of Home Fixtures: Moderate
    • Difficulty of Away Fixtures: Very High
    • Chance of Relegation: Very High
