Newcastle United’s 2-1 win over Tottenham has seen the Magpies’ relegation fears disperse as they drift out to 2/1 from 6/5 after moving into 15th place in the Premier League table.

Aston Villa remain bottom of the table and have shortened further into 1/9 from 1/6 for relegation as their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal sees a place in the Championship calling.

Arsenal are now top the table off the back of their win over Aston Villa and have been cut into 13/8 from 9/4 as they hold a one point lead.

Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with West Brom has added to their recent woes and they have been pushed out to 16/1 from 12/1 to win the league.

The Reds have also been eased for a spot in the Top Four and can now be backed at 10/11 from 8/11.

Tottenham have also suffered a drift as a result of their defeat and are now 11/8 from 23/20 to clamber their way into a Top Four finish in May.

To Be Relegated: Aston Villa 1/9, Sunderland 1/5, Norwich 11/10, Newcastle 2/1, Bournemouth 11/5 BAR
