Scott Parker’s Cottagers moved to within one point of Newcastle United, whose 1-0 victory at Anfield came a few hours after Steve Bruce lauded his side’s 0-0 draw at West Brom.
As a result, Burnley have been dragged back into danger, Brighton and Hove Albion continue to be the victims of their own downfall and Newcastle, well… they have won just twice in 18 games.
The relegation picture is hotting up, just weeks after it looked like Fulham were down and out.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are nine points clear of the relegation zone - and the bookmakers don’t envisage that changing enough for them to be dragged into a relegation battle.
But who are the bookmakers tipping to drop into the Championship? Scroll and click through our gallery to discover their latest relegation odds:
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds have earned plenty of plaudits during their first season back in the Premier League - and the bookmakers are tipping that to continue into next season. The Saints have lost top scorer Danny Ings for three weeks but with 33 points to their name, the bookies are predicting Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side to stay clear of danger. Palace’s advantage over the bottom three stands at eight points and are boosted by the return of talisman Wilfried Zaha. Draws have prevented Burnley from moving away from relegation trouble in recent weeks, with just four points the difference between them and the bottom three. Albion’s attacking stats rank among the top half of the division but their lack of killer instinct is proving very costly as they sit 17th and level on points with 18th place Fulham. Scott Parker’s men now look very well equipped to survive, just weeks after they looked dead and buried. It’s just one defeat in seven for Fulham… United are now favourites to drop into the Championship after Steve Bruce’s ‘don’t lose’ approach at West Brom was embarrassed by Fulham’s win at Liverpool. Although Bruce felt Newcastle’s game at West Brom wasn’t a must-win, it was indeed a must-win for Sam Allardyce’s side. They didn’t, which saw the Baggies’ relegation odds take a hit. The bookmakers believe there is no way back for the Blades and who can blame them as Chris Wilder’s side sit 12 points from safety with 10 games to go.
