Who will be relegated from the Premier League this season?
Could the three teams promoted from the Championship all be relegated from the Premier League this season? Luton Town, Sheffield United and Burnley have all made poor starts to the new season so is the writing already on the wall?
From the moment Luton won promotion to the Premier League, they have been favorites to be relegated this season. That opinion hasn’t changed with them bottom of the table after their first four games. You can get 1/5 at BetVictor on them being relegated.
Only two goals have been scored so far with ten conceded. As their former director Eric Morecambe might say. “What do you think of it so far? Rubbish!”
There must have been a few hearts broken at the end of Sheffield United’s latest game. Second half injury time turned a 1-0 lead at Tottenham into a 2-1 defeat. That made it just one point from five games. They’re 4/11 at bet365 to go down.
Burnley won the Championship last season and might do again in 2024-25. Three home games have all been lost with a worrying 11 goals conceded. Unless Vincent Kompany can sort out their defensive problems, the 5/2 at William Hill looks a good bet.
More trouble at Goodison
Who might prevent an immediate return to the Championship for those three clubs? Everton are only 6/4 at bet365 to finally be relegated.
They’ve been in trouble for the past two seasons and not playing well again so far this season. The impending takeover might be the answer and another escape could be achieved.
Bournemouth are 11/4 at BetVictor to be relegated but should be able to do enough to avoid going down. Wolves can be backed at 5/2 with William Hill and need to work on their defending to avoid trouble.
It’s early days but the three clubs who came up last season may well be back in the Championship for 2024-25.
