Southampton’s Championship play-off final victory over Leeds United means the Premier League line-up for the 2024/25 season has been confirmed - and so too the title and relegation odds for the next top-flight campaign.

The Saints beat Leeds 1-0 at Wembley on Sunday to join champions Leicester City and Ipswich Town in the 2024/25 Premier League, but which of them will still be there come next May?

The Foxes face some significant hurdles before their first game, scheduled for the weekend of August 17/18, with a possible points deduction from the Premier League in the offing, while head coach Enzo Maresca is understood to be on the shortlist for the Chelsea manager’s job.

As such, the relegation odds for City will not make comfortable reading for their fans. The Foxes are odds on to finish rock-bottom of the top-flight at odds of 1/2, with fellow promoted team Ipswich an 8/11 shot to join them in a rapid return to the Championship.

A big surprise in the SkyBet odds is Everton (5/4) being ranked as third favourites to go down next term, with the Saints just managing to survive (6/4) and then Nottingham Forest two places clear of the drop zone (9/4).

Leicester City will learn their 2024/25 Premier League programme when the fixtures are released at 9am on June 18. The schedule for early TV games will be announced soon after that.

Manchester City are predicted to claim a fifth successive Premier League title. They are listed at evens by SkyBet, with Arsenal (9/4) and Liverpool (15/2) tipped to complete the top three. The big movers next term - and listed to finish fourth at 16/1 - are Chelsea, currently without a manager after the exit of Mauricio Pochettino.

Next come Manchester United at 25/1 with Newcastle, also at 25/1, tipped to complete the top six.
