Who will go down?

While it was an incredible effort by Cardiff to get promoted, it’d be a monumental achievement to stay in the EPL this season.
Neil Warnock is out of his depth at this level and while they could well take a few big scalps at home, they’re 9/4 favourites to finish bottom for a reason.
Who’ll join them is a bit of a quandary, more down to the lack of quality in the lower half of the table last year that saw a host of clubs caught up in relegation squabbles.
Wolves should be fine but Fulham are also good additions to the league and can provide plenty of entertainment for their fans and are taken to stay up.
Southampton and Watford could be in trouble again and if you take a frustrated Rafa Benitez out of the Newcastle equation then they’ll be a lot shorter than 11/2 to go down.
But Brighton and Huddersfield strike <ht80sport> as the biggest candidates for the drop despite them both having some big results last season.
Staying up for them both was a huge achievement – but building on that is always a difficult prospect and we don’t see enough goals in the two lowest scorers who stayed in the EPL.
