Swansea City are the clear favourites to be relegated from the Premier League in the 2017-18 season after a run of 10 defeats in 15 matches.

The Welsh club have slumped to the bottom of the table, with the only times they have avoided losing during this dismal current spell, both in the league and the Carabao Cup, being when they drew 0-0 with Bournemouth, 1-1 with Crystal Palace and Newcastle and won 1-0 at home to West Bromwich Albion and 2-1 at Watford.

The Swans have been beaten in seven of their 11 league games at the Liberty Stadium in the league this term and yet again they are now relying on a manager with no previous Premier League experience to lift them away from danger, having replaced Paul Clement with former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal.

Second favourites in the Premier League relegation betting are West Bromwich Albion, who are also among the six clubs to have already changed their manager this season with Alan Pardew the man now tasked with getting the Baggies out of trouble.

Huddersfield Town had originally been the shortest price in the relegation betting following their surprise promotion last term via the play-offs, which secured their first top-flight campaign since 1972.

But the Terriers have so far confounded the bookmakers and many pundits, sitting four points above the drop zone and with a famous home victory over Manchester United to their credit.

It is a similar story at Brighton, who are playing their first season at the highest level of English football since 1983.

Although they failed to score a goal in their opening three games and collected only a solitary point, Chris Hughton’s side picked up nicely although their recent form is a cause for concern.

Crystal Palace made the worst ever start to an English season by any club but have started to recover promisingly.

The Eagles lost their first seven league matches without scoring a goal and manager Frank de Boer, who was only appointed during the summer, was sacked after the first four of those.

Former England boss Roy Hodgson was appointed as the Dutchman’s replacement and after garnering no immediate improvement during a tough run of fixtures, he eventually got Palace up and running with a 2-1 home victory over reigning champions Chelsea.

There are no guarantees that the south London club can overcome the dreadful start to preserve their top-flight status, but they have made ground very impressively to climb nicely away from the drop zone.

Of the clubs who have been established longer in the Premier League, Bournemouth made another of their customary slow starts and need to repeat what they have done in the previous two campaigns by progressing as the season evolves, while Burnley have improved considerably to leave well behind their status as one of the original pre-season relegation favourites.
