It comes as no real surprise that the six teams who were against the resumption of the new Premier League season were those who currently occupy the bottom six places in the table. Their calls for the campaign to be deemed null and void were ultimately unsuccessful as we are now just days away from the resumption of the 2020/21 Premier League season. Every game between now and the end of the season will be vital for those involved in the relegation battle and here we will take a closer look at those in danger and their odds of facing the drop.

Norwich City – 1/9
It would be a huge achievement for Norwich City if they are able to avoid the drop come the end of the season given their current predicament. The Canaries are sat bottom of the Premier League table as things currently stand, finding themselves six points adrift of safety having won just five games all season. It’s no shock to any that Daniel Farke’s team are such heavy favourites for the drop.
Aston Villa – 1/3
Up next are another one of the newly promoted sides in Aston Villa, whose odds could change significantly if they are able to pick up a shock win at Sheffield United on Wednesday, who are the only promoted side clear of danger. A win for Villa would see them exit the bottom three and climb up to 16th in the table, but their league-worst total of 56 goals conceded this season doesn’t make for great reading. Dean Smith’s team are set to be reliant on the form of captain Jack Grealish in the closing weeks, who continues to be linked with a move to Manchester United.
Bournemouth – 4/5
Bournemouth make up the final of the current teams in the bottom three, having endured a difficult season under Eddie Howe. The Cherries have been in the Premier League since the 2015/16 season, establishing themselves as a competitive side in the top flight during that time but could this be the season that sees them return to the Championship?
West Ham – 2/1
No club was more vocal in their attempts to see the season called null and void than West Ham United, who have had to call upon David Moyes to try and save them from the drop as he did in 2017/18. The Hammers were in woeful form prior to the break of the season, winning just one of their last 10 games and will be greeted with a tough start of games against Wolves, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. Don’t be surprised to see them in the relegation zone after their first three games back.
Watford – 12/5
Watford looked like certainties for the drop prior to the appointment of Nigel Pearson, but the Hornets now look to be in a much healthier position as the odds now reflect. Their 3-0 victory over Liverpool in February should give them real hope heading into the remaining weeks of the season that they can beat anyone in the league on their day. Finding consistency could be the difference for this team that boasts plenty of talent.
Brighton – 11/4
Brighton may be 15th but they’re far from out of danger, with there being just two points between themselves and 18th. Graham Potter’s team have played some nice football this season and enjoyed good results early on, but have now won only just one of their last 15 games in all competitions and had scored just twice in their previous four games.
