What Trueform says about the Premier League relegation battle
Bournemouth shot back up our Trueform ratings thanks to a 1-0 win at Newcastle and are now out to 11/4 in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds.
The Cherries moved out of the bottom three after Steve Cook’s last-gasp header gave them a second straight away win.
Eddie Howe’s side were rated a value bet at 3/1 to prevail at St James’ Park in our preview of the match with the Magpies.
“We have been on the receiving end this season of conceding late goals, so it was great to do the opposite,” commented the manager.
“It’s easy to sit back and just absorb pressure in that last stage, but we didn’t and to score from the set-piece – it was a great ball in and a great header from our perspective – it’s a very satisfying way to win.”
New boys continue to impress
Having upset Manchester United in their last home match, Huddersfield picked up another valuable win at the John Smith’s Stadium via Rajiv van La Parra’s superb strike against West Brom.
The Terriers then held on bravely despite having centre-half Christopher Schindler sent off on 57 minutes and are 11/5 for the drop, with Albion cut to 11/4 to go down.
“No matter who you play at this level, it’s difficult with a man less and we showed the grit and determination for each other and the spirit to keep a clean sheet,” Tom Ince told the club website.
“The fans turned out and were pushing us through for the last 10 or 15 minutes. We have to use that energy and not give in.”
The Baggies’ winless Premier League run was extended to nine matches and they slipped to 16th in the table, two points above the relegation zone.
Brighton are alongside fellow new boys Huddersfield on 15 points following a 1-0 success at Swansea, with Glenn Murray grabbing the crucial goal at Liberty Stadium.
The Seagulls are now 7/2 for a quick return to the Championship, having lost only once in their last six games.
Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan said: “The confidence is high and I’ve always felt in my experience that when things are going well you just let your instincts take over.”
Swans now favourites for the drop
Swansea are second from bottom on eight points and 1/2 in bwin’s Premier League relegation odds after substitute Luciano Narsingh struck the crossbar in stoppage time.
“It’s not about one, two, three, four players – it’s about everyone,” captain Federico Fernandez said. “At the moment, it’s not really working well, but we will try until the end to stay together and turn it around.”
Crystal Palace remained at the foot of the table on four points following a 1-0 loss at Tottenham and are 31/50 for the drop.
West Ham can be backed at 9/4 to go down after a 4-1 home loss to Liverpool saw them slip into the bottom three on nine points.
That latest setback also led to the departure of Hammers boss Slaven Bilic, who was appointed in June 2015 on a three-year contract.
The United hierarchy “believe a change is now necessary in order for the club to move forward positively and in line with their ambition”, a statement read.
