The battle to avoid the drop is always one of the most fascinating aspects of the Premier League season. Can the promoted sides adapt to the top flight? Which teams will suffer a huge injury crisis? Will a big side have a nightmare season?
If you are looking for Premier League relegation tips, you are in the perfect place. We have looked at the contenders and put together our exclusive Premier League relegation predictions for the season. But before we reveal our picks for the drop, let’s take a look at some of the main candidates…
Luton Town (1/3) have had an incredible rise through the Football League in recent years, but preserving a place in the top flight could be one step too far. The playoff winners have made a few transfer moves, but they still look some way short of the quality required to stay afloat. It is hard to make a case for the Hatters avoiding a swift return to the Championship.
Squad strength could also be a big issue for Sheffield United (8/11). Last season’s Championship runners up have made very few Summer moves and with star striker Iliman Ndiaye looking likely to leave, it could be a long season for the Blades.
Burnley (3/1) look the side best placed to avoid a one season visit to the Premier League. Vincent Kompany’s men stormed to the Championship title and are packed with Premier League experience. The only stumbling block could be if Kompany is poached by one of the bigger clubs in the division.
Bournemouth (5/2) and Notts Forest (5/2) both proved the bookies wrong last season by comfortably surviving the drop. However, sophomore seasons are often problematic for promoted sides, so don’t be surprised to see Forest and/or the Cherries battling the drop this time.
Everton (3/1) only survived on the last day of the season and it looks like another season of struggle for the Toffees. A lack of investment in the playing squad is likely to lead to more disillusionment among fans. This could finally be the year that Everton’s long stay in the top flight comes to an end.
In reality, any side outside the top six could face a relegation battle this season. But whilst the likes of Brentford, Aston Villa and Brighton could see a drop off this campaign, it is hard to imagine they will be battling the drop. However, there are a few mid table sides that could be looking over their shoulders towards the end of this campaign…
Wolves (3/1) have lost several key players over the summer. Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez, Joao Moutinho and Adama Traore all leave big holes in the Wanderers team, and whilst a few additions have been made, the squad looks somewhat lighter than last season.
The expected loss of Aleksandar Mitrovic is a huge blow to Fulham (7/2). The talismanic striker was responsible for over three times as many goals as his nearest colleague at Craven Cottage. Without Mitrovic, it’s hard to see Fulham getting close to the top half finish they achieved in 2022/23.
Talking of losses, Wilfried Zaha’s departure from Crystal Palace (11/2) could have massive repercussions for the Eagles. For years, Zaha has been the shining light at Selhurst Park and in his absence, Palace look a much more vulnerable side.
Finally, Europa Conference champions West Ham (11/1) cannot be completely discounted from the relegation conversation. They have another European season to manage, something that adversely impacted their league form at times last season. They are also without Declan Rice and are yet to bring in any replacements. If there is to be an unexpected relegation candidate this season, it could be the Hammers.
These are arguably the hardest Premier League tips of all. So many teams could get embroiled in the relegation fight and picking the bottom three is extremely tough. We think it’s fair to say that Luton Town and Sheffield United are likely to have a season of struggle ahead of them. However, both of those sides are odds on for the drop, so do not represent betting value. Instead, our Premier League relegation tip focuses on perennial strugglers Everton.
That’s right, for our expert Premier League relegation tip, we are predicting that Everton will finally lose their annual battle against the drop. Simply put, this is a very weak squad for a difficult Premier League campaign. Dominic Calvert Lewin is a fine striker, but has struggled with injuries in recent years. Jordan Pickford is a top quality keeper, but is playing behind a fragile looking defence. Throw in an uninspiring looking midfield and it all adds up to a relegation bound team.
Manager Sean Dyche is experienced at avoiding the drop, but it is entirely conceivable that he will find himself falling out with the Everton board at some stage. Even worse, the Goodison faithful are liable to lose patience with the players at any point, which could lead to some toxic atmospheres on matchdays.
Bournemouth and Wolves are likely to be hovering around the drop zone as well, but for our money, Everton look like the team most likely to find themselves in the Championship by May. You can find an Everton relegation priced at 3/1 with Spreadex.
