Middlesbrough look likely to be consigned to a return to the Championship unless they can pull one of the biggest upsets of the season out of the bag when they travel to face Chelsea on Monday evening.
The northeast outfit make their way to Stamford Bridge seven points adrift of safety with only three games remaining in their campaign, and the bookmakers haven’t given the side much hope of a lifeline in the top flight after listing Boro at 1/1000 (1.00) to be relegated.
Meanwhile, Hull City have been downgraded to 1/5 (1.20) to see the drop after surrendering a 2-0 home defeat to already relegated Sunderland on Saturday, putting pressure on them to pull things back in their last two games of the season, with a point between them and 17th-placed Swansea City.
Following a 1-0 triumph over Everton in Week 36, the Swans are soaring under manager Paul Clement and are now 5/1 (6.00) to drop down to the second tier.
They travel to Sunderland next Saturday before ending their season at home to West Brom, while Hull have a much harder slate ahead, travelling to Crystal Palace in Week 37 before Tottenham Hotspur visit the KCOM Stadium in the Tigers’ last game of the season.
