Premier League relegation odds heading into final weekend
Everton, Leeds United, and Leicester City fight for survival in the top division.
The English Premier League’s 2022–23 season is heading into its final weekend. Manchester City secured the title and ended a two-horse title race. As the race for the title has ended, the focus is shifted to the bottom half of the table. Southampton’s 11-year stay in the top division ended on May 13th and they became the first team to get relegated from the current season. The battle for the remaining two relegation spots will go to the last weekend. Everton, Leeds United, and Leicester City are the three teams that could go down.
Looking at the current situation of these three teams, they all depend upon each other for their safety. As these teams prepare for their final match of the Premier League season, we take a look at their chances of survival.
Everton – 33 Pts (17th)
Sean Dyche’s men have the least chance of going down this season. Everton have a two-point advantage and faces Bournemouth in their final game. Their chances of going down are low at 19%. The Toffees can even survive if all three teams lose their respective matches. However, Dyche will be expecting a positive response from his players. His team has scored nine goals in the last five games. This average of goals scored is way better than the overall average of the team this season. Everton’s odds of winning the match against Bournemouth are around 1.5. They will look to guarantee safety with three points at Goodison Park.

Leicester City – 31 Pts (18th)
The Foxes returned to the Premier League in the 2014-15 season and won the title the very next season. Now into their ninth consecutive season in the top flight, they have the second-highest percentage of going down. Leicester City made a poor start to the season and are now battling for relegation. Their chances of going down are 84%. The Foxes are two points behind Everton but have a superior goal difference. In the final match of the season, Dean Smith’s men face West Ham United. In order to survive, they not only have to win the match but also hope that Bournemouth takes at least a point away from Goodison Park. This makes them the second-favourite team to go down.
Leeds United – 31 Pts (19th)
Leeds United are playing their third consecutive season in the English Premier League. After surviving relegation last season, the team once again struggled to make its mark in the top flight. There is a 97% chance that Sam Allardyce’s men are likely to get relegated. Leeds are two points behind Everton and have a poorer goal difference than Leicester. They host Tottenham Hotspur at Elland Road in their final battle. This will be a tough game against Spurs, who themselves want to end this season on a high. Big Sam’s team also depends a lot on the results of the other two teams. Leeds United need to win their game and hope that the other two teams lose theirs. The hosts are also winless in their last eight matches. This even worsens their chances of staying up.
All eyes will be set on the relegation battle heading into the final weekend.
