It’s been a another positive weekend in our push towards Premier League safety, with Fulham throwing away TWO precious points at Arsenal 24 hours on from our huge win over West Ham.
Fulham looked set to reduce the gap to six points with a 0-1 victory at The Emirates, only for Eddie Nketiah’s 97th minute strike to deal Scott Parker’s side yet another hammer blow.
Burnley, who we leapfrogged yesterday, also conceded two late goals to lose 3-1 at Old Trafford today – a result that leaves them six ahead of Fulham (27 points) and two behind ourselves.
Here’s an updated Premier League table, followed by the latest relegation odds following this weekend’s results:
Relegation odds – 18th April
- Sheffield United – RELEGATED
- West Brom – 1/100 (1.01)
- Fulham – 1/12 (1.08)
- Burnley – 8/1 (9)
- Newcastle – 13/1 (14)
- Brighton – 22/1 (23)
This is quite a swing considering these were the bookies relegation odds back in early March:
Relegation odds – 9th March
- Sheffield United – 1/100 (1.01)
- West Brom – 1/50 (1.02)
- Newcastle – 6/5 (2.20)
- Fulham – 7/4 (2.75)
- Brighton – 4/1 (5.00)
