Huddersfield 11/8 for the drop after City defeat

Huddersfield’s loss at home to Manchester City along with 3 points for Crystal Palace yesterday, has seen the Yorkshire club become second favourites in the latest Relegation Betting.

David Wagner’s team are now a best price of 11/8 with Betfair and Betvictor for the drop after this latest – all be it – expected setback. In fairness to The Terriers, they more than gave City a match, and if you do fancy them to stay up, there was some positive signs today.

Favourites for the drop are Swansea after a goalless draw at home to Bournemouth on Saturday, they are 4/11 with William Hill, who have Palace at 6/4, West Ham at 7/4, and West Brom at 9/4.

Speaking of Swansea, and their manager, Paul Clement, is the new favourite in Next Manager To Leave His Position Betting, replacing Watford’s Marco Silva at the top of the market. Clement is currently 7/4 with Betvictor, with Silva (still rumoured to be interested in moving to Everton) at 4/1 second favourite with Paddy Power and Betfair.

Everton got their second decent thrashing in the space of 4 days with a 4-1 defeat away at Southampton, another team who aren’t exactly pulling up any trees. That’s just the 9 goals conceded in 2 matches for Everton (after losing 5-1 to Atalanta in the Europa League last Thursday), surely the need to appoint a new manager is now paramount, as the situation is just getting beyond the joke at Goodison Park now.

There is another round of Premier League fixtures midweek, so chances are even if Everton act quickly, they still won’t have him in charge in time for the home match against West Ham on Wednesday night.
