This is one race nobody wants to be in but the reality for the three bottom teams in the Premier League each year is relegation, which has a huge financial impact on clubs, and needless to say a massive emotional impact it has on fans. Newly promoted teams have typically found relegation difficult to avoid.
From a football betting point of view this is one of the most competitive markets on offer, and usually goes right down to the wire, which is a lot more than can be said for the title chase most years, as that market is typically decided a long way out from home.
Pick a perennial battler and watch them squirm - it is no surprise to see six or seven teams on the hook and displaying tasty prices on the bookies' boards to resign themselves to the biggest of all drops.
