What Trueform says about the Premier League relegation battle
Southampton have been eased out to Evens in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds after boosting their survival hopes with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth.
Saints had won just one of their previous 21 top-flight matches, but Dusan Tadic’s double pushed them to within a point of safety, with three games to play.
Mark Hughes beamed: “We’ve given ourselves an opportunity and a chance to turn this around.
“Results change everything. They change perception, they change people’s mentality, they change fans’ mentality, it’s not all negative now.
“The performance and result together puts everyone in a different frame of mind.”
Swansea are just a point above the Saints and have a worse goal difference following their 1-0 home loss to Chelsea.
That made it six games without a win, with City failing to score in four of those fixtures.
However, the Welsh outfit are as big as 11/4 to go down, as they have a decent run-in which sees them visit Bournemouth, before entertaining Southampton and Stoke.
“I don’t think there’s a problem with scoring enough goals,” said midfielder Ki Sung-yueng. “The players have the ability to score goals.
“But everyone has to help the strikers and attacking players, it’s not just their responsibility.
“We had very good chances against Chelsea – a top-five side who were champions last years – but they didn’t go in and we have to focus for the next three games.”
Terriers facing tough run-in
Huddersfield are three points above the drop zone following a 2-0 defeat by Everton at John Smith’s Stadium.
The Terriers close with games against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, though, hence a quote of 8/5 for them to fall.
David Wagner commented: “It’s disappointing for us, of course it is, and I’ll allow everybody who supports Huddersfield Town to be disappointed.
“But everybody has to see we might not have been able to use the first match point, but we have three further ones and this is exactly what we asked for.
“Will 35 points be enough to stay up? I don’t think so. This means everybody who has 35 points or less has to make sure they collect more points and this is the case for us.”
West Brom also still look doomed on 28 points from 36 matches, despite following up a win over Manchester United and a draw versus Liverpool by prevailing 1-0 at Newcastle.
West Ham are on 35 points from the same number of games after being hammered 4-1 by Manchester City, but they are 14/1 to drop out of the top flight.
Brighton have a couple more points to their credit after a goalless draw at Burnley and are 50/1 for a quick return to the Championship.
