Busy Town backed to stay in Premier League

Huddersfield remain odds-on favourites to be relegated from the Premier League but the Terriers have been pushed out to 4-6 by bet365 to suffer a swift demotion as David Wagner continues to be busy in the transfer market.

Danish centre-back Mathias "Zanka" Jorgensen joined from FC Copenhagen to become the 10th new arrival for the Sky Bet Championship playoff winners.

The Premier League debutants have also signed Steve Mounie, Aaron Mooy, Tom Ince, Laurent Depoitre, Scott Malone, Elias Kachunga, Danny Williams, Kasey Palmer and Jonas Lossl which persuaded bet365 to go 6-5 from 11-8 about Huddersfield staying up.

Betfair are still laying Town at 13-10 to remain in the top flight and of those ten new signings, three - Mooy, Kachunga and Palmer - were on loan at Huddersfield last season and Ince, Malone and Williams have arrived from Championship clubs.

With Chelsea long odds-on to miss out on Romelu Lukaku, they will almost certainly have to turn their attention elsewhere and Alvaro Morata has been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge.

The Spanish striker is 9-4 with Sky Bet to sign for Chelsea before the end of the summer transfer window and 11-4 to end up in Manchester with United. Morata is 8-11 to remain with Real Madrid.

Much could depend on whether Real manage to sign Monaco's teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, who is 11-8 with Betfred to be snapped up by the European champions this summer.

Mbappe is 2-1 with Sky Bet to stick with Monaco but Arsenal have drifted to 16-1 with Paddy Power.

Leicester v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings
Expert verdict
There are likely to be goals in this clash with both sides conceding nine goals from their opening five league games. It was honours even last season with Leicester winning 3-1 at home and the Reds winning 4-1 at Anfield, and something similar could be on the cards in this contest. Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings and there have been three goals or more in five of the last eight league contests. Even with Sadio Mane suspended Liverpool should give the Foxes a serious test. However, in the home ranks, Jamie Vardy will be desperate for a run at this dodgy Liverpool rearguard.
