A minimum of seven sides remain locked in the battle for relegation, with Leicester now odds-on for the drop after a 2-1 defeat at Villa Park on Sunday.

The Foxes are now 4/5 (from 11/10) to last a solitary season in the top flight and boss Nigel Pearson the new 11/10 favourite to be the first manager of the 2014/2015 Premier League season to lose his job.

The Clarets are now two points adrift from safety but have an excellent chance to bounce back when hosting Southampton at Turf Moor tomorrow. Ronald Koeman’s side were as short as 2/1 for a top four finish after a run of nine wins in 10 games, however the Saints have eased out to 7/2 after three straight defeats to Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Saints arrive as odds-on favourites; Southampton 3/4, Burnley 21/5 and the draw 13/5 with BetVictor.

Meanwhile, Danny Ings has been cut to 33/1 (from 100s) to be the league’s top English goalscorer, and has also been given a quote of 4/1 with BetVictor to win an England cap before the end of qualifying for Euro 2016 finishes next October.
