Premier League Closing Stages Round-Up
April 17, 2019
The 2018/19 Premier League title race between Liverpool and Manchester City looks set to go down to the wire. City are aiming to be the first team to retain the Premier League title in 11 years while Liverpool are aiming for their first league title in 29 years.
Liverpool are currently top of the table with 85 points, just ahead of City on 83 points. The current best price on Liverpool is currently 6/5, but with City having a game in hand they are the bookies favourite with a best price of 5/6, despite looking to have the harder run in.

The remaining Champions League spots could also go down to the final day with Tottenham (67 points), Arsenal (66 points), Chelsea (66 points) and Man Utd (64 points) all competing to play in Europe’s top competition next season. Tottenham look favourites to lock up one spot at 3/10, whilst their North London rivals Arsenal are second favourites at 8/15. With Man Utd and Chelsea still to play each other, Chelsea having played an extra game and Man Utd still having to play title favourites Man City, they have longer odds of 3/1 and 19/10 respectively.

The relegation battle looks more clear-cut, with Huddersfield and Fulham already confirmed as joining the Championship next season. Although, the battle to avoid relegation between Brighton and Cardiff took a twist on Tuesday night when Cardiff won at the Amex. Cardiff are still favourites to be relegated at odds of 4/11 compared to Brighton at 5/2, but with 3 of the top 4 still left to play, Brighton could be in trouble.
