The English             top tier soccer league is back. Update: September 20th, 2020 11:41 am EST

The 2020/21 English Premier League season recently got underway.

Which teams are at the biggest risk of being relegated, at least according to the oddsmakers?

Let's take a look at the odds of the teams with the highest chance of relegation, according to Bet365:

The other race of interest in the English Premier League - the four Champions League spots.

The top four finishers in the English Premier League are given automatic spots in the Champions League Group Stage.

This is being complicated for next season, as Man City has currently been banned from Champions League competition for two years, starting next year (though Man City has the chance to appeal the decision).

This means that the fifth place in English Premier League could be very important as well.

As of right now, the top four teams in the league are:

Liverpool, 82 points
Man City, 57 points
Leicester, 53 points
Chelsea, 48 points

Liverpool, Man City and Leicester all seem like pretty solid locks to finish in the top four. Chelsea currently sits three points ahead of Man Utd, while there is a log jam of teams that are close behind Manchester United.

Let's take a look at the current odds to finish in the top 4:

Liverpool, Clinched
Man City, 1.004
Leicester, 1.16
Chelsea, 1.66
Man Utd, 2.75
Wolverhampton, 7.00
Sheff Utd, 15.00
Tottenham, 13.00
Arsenal, 21.00

The battle for fifth place will be one to watch as well, as that place could prove to be of vital importance if Man City is banned for two years.
