Tigers are relegated after tame display at Palace

HULL, 8-11 for relegation at the start of the season, dropped out of the Premier League with a tame 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

The Tigers, tipped to go down by Racing Post Sport’s Mark Langdon, had shown more fight since Marco Silva replaced Mike Phelan but have taken only four points from their last six games.

The good news for Hull is that Ladbrokes make them more likely than fellow Premier League rejects Middlesbrough and Sunderland to return next season.

The Tigers are 10-3 to bounce back with Boro 4-1 and the Black Cats 5-1. Hull are 10-1 to go up as champions, but Silva would not commit to staying.

Liverpool are 1-10 for a top-four finish after thrashing West Ham 4-0. With Manchester City 1-20 in the same market, Arsenal are out to 11-2 to make the Champions League places.

Tottenham beat Manchester United 2-1 in their final game at White Hart Lane to wrap up second place. They are 16-1 with bet365 to go unbeaten at home next season and 8-1 for the title.

It completed a full set of ten victories for the weekend’s Premier League favourites. Bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “The perfect ten doesn’t happen often but two Championship playoff draws eased the pain a bit.”

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Milan have not won any of their last five away games
Expert verdict
Cagliari's last game of the season will also be their last at the Stadio Sant'Elia for three years - they are scheduled to return to a revamped venue in 2020 - and they can sign off with a win over sixth-placed Milan. The home side will be highly-motivated to post an 11th home league win of the season, while Milan cannot finish any higher or lower.
