Cardiff’s odds of staying up move from 12/5 to 1/1 after Southampton win

There were some significant results in the Premier League across Saturday and Sunday, many which could have huge implications on the rest of the season.

Watford got one over former manager Marco Silva at Vicarage Road, Burnley continued their Tom Heaton-inspired revival at Brighton and Manchester City defeated Chelsea 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

However, perhaps the most significant result came at St. Mary’s where Cardiff City upset Southampton in a six-pointer at the bottom of the table, winning 2-1 on the road in a huge victory for the Bluebirds.

It now means that Neil Warnock’s team have taken six points off the Saints in the Premier League this season via two one-goal victories, something which could prove to be extremely poignant come the end of the campaign.

Against all odds

Few gave Cardiff a chance at the start of the Premier League season, with the Welsh side placed as the early favourites to be relegated from the top flight after minimal transfer activity over the summer.

Warnock would admit it himself that they are currently punching well above their weight, with teams above and below them having greater wage and transfer budgets, but the team have never lacked effort.

Before a ball was kicked, Cardiff were 8/13 on to go down this season and most pre-season Premier League table predictions saw them finishing in 20th. However, that almost certainly won’t be the case now with both Huddersfield and Fulham – barring something remarkable – looking destined to finish beneath them.

Now, Cardiff are best-priced at 10/11 to be relegated this term, moving to 1/1 with Bet365 to stay up after winning 2-1 on the south coast. The result has also seen Southampton move to 5/1 to go down at the end of the season, having gone into the weekend as far out as 12/1 to go down.

Burnley winning 3-1 on the road against Brighton certainly wasn’t the result Cardiff were hoping for on Saturday night, but will be more than happy with the fact that their fate is now in their own hands.

Cardiff are currently 16th in the Premier League table on 25 points, with Southampton now 18th on 24 points after the defeat. 17th-placed Newcastle face Wolves at Molineux on Monday night.

Brighton’s defeat against Burnley has now seen them drop to within three points of the relegation zone and are certainly a team to include in this relegation dogfight, as are 13th-placed Crystal Palace who are also only three points off the bottom three.
