Premier League top four betting odds: Man United to miss out on Champions League

Next Premier League manager sacked odds

Manchester United are seen as likely to miss out on Champions League football next season in the latest Premier League top four betting odds from Coral.

Despite being in relatively good form in 2024 so far, United sit 11 points behind Tottenham in fourth place in the Premier League table. With just seven games left to play, it’s quite likely that the Erik ten Hag’s men WON’T be playing Champions League football next season.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are, unsurprisingly, seen as the clear favourites to finish inside the top four, but Coral looks at the likes of Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton, and the aforementioned Man United and Spurs when discussing who else is likely to finish in the Champions League places come May 2024.

Premier League top four betting odds

As noted, Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal are all seen as shoe-ins to finish inside the top four, but Coral now takes you through five of the top candidates to finish in the final Champions League place come the end of the season.

Tottenham – 1/3

Priced by Coral as the fourth-favourites to finish inside the top four are Tottenham Hotspur, who at the time of writing, are sitting in the final Champions League space.

While they might not be on the title charge that fans hoped they’d be on when they found themselves beating Liverpool 2-1 at home in September, Ange Postecoglu has been very impressive in his first season in charge, having to cope without many of his key players for most of the season.

However, the Australian manager now has pretty much a full strength team, hence why they’re seen as the fourth most likely team to finish inside the top four come the end of the season.

Aston Villa – 7/4

Aston Villa have beaten Man City and Arsenal at home this season, including spending some time right in the mix at the top of the Premier League. Since Unai Emery came into the club nearly 18 months ago, Villa have become one of the hardest teams to play against, and that’s been backed up by their points tally.

After 32 games, Villa find themselves with 60 points, 11 more than United who are in sixth. The 1982 Champions League winners haven’t been in the best form since December, but they’ve got enough quality in their ranks that if things start to go their way, a finish inside the top four really isn’t out of the question.

Also, given the new format of the Champions League, finishing in fifth place might be enough to secure Champions League football this season, so even if finishing in the top four doesn’t happen, then Villa could still be playing in Europe’s top club competition next campaign.

Man United – 33/1

Man United may have completed the double over Aston Villa this season after a 2-1 win at Villa Park on February 11, but they still find themselves priced behind Emery’s side in the top four race.

United have been plagued with injury issues this season, as well as inconsistent form. However, if they are able to string a good set of performances together, which they’ve done so far this year, there’s no reason they couldn’t go on a top four charge and finish inside the UCL spots come the end of the season, if results from the other sides go their way.

If they win their game in hand, they’re eight points behind Villa, and as of right now, they’re 11 points behind Spurs having played the same amount of games. With only seven games left between now and the end of the season, it’s likely that United have simply left it too late.

Best of the rest

Chelsea are at 66/1 to finish inside the top four, which could be some feat considering they’re in ninth place with 44 points following a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in their last league outing. Newcastle are considered longshots at 80/1, despite their relatively easy run-in.
