Chelsea 25-1 to snatch fourth place from Liverpool

Golden Boot-chasing Harry Kane 13-2 for a hat-trick

Liverpool tend to save their best for the biggest occasions
1 of 1

Liverpool are red-hot favourites to qualify for the Champions League at the expense of fifth-placed Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp's men need just one point at home to Brighton to fend off the Blues and are no bigger than 1-50 for a top-four finish.

Chelsea, who must win at Newcastle and hope for a Brighton victory at Anfield, are 25-1 to finish fourth.

The relegation picture looks even clearer with Swansea almost certain to join West Brom and Stoke in the Sky Bet Championship.

Three points separate the third-bottom Swans from fourth-bottom Southampton, whose goal difference is nine superior.

Swansea need a ten-goal swing in their favour although the fixtures give them a glimmer of hope with basement boys Stoke providing the opposition at the Liberty Stadium, while Saints play at home to free-scoring City.

Nonetheless it looks a tall order for the Welsh side, who are 100-1 to survive and 1-500 to go down.

Premier League standings

Harry Kane's hopes of winning the Golden Boot are not much better.

The Tottenham striker trails Mohamed Salah by three goals going into their last Wembley home game against Leicester and is 13-1 to win the Golden Boot with Salah the 1-20 favourite.

Bookmakers are guarding against a Kane goal glut with the Spurs man no bigger than 13-2 to grab a hat-trick.

Rotherham are 8-13 favourites with bet365 to qualify from their Sky Bet League One playoff semi-final against Scunthorpe despite squandering two leads in a 2-2 first-leg draw at Glanford Park. Scunny are 6-5 to progress.

Derby have the edge in their Sky Bet Championship playoff semi-final against Fulham after a superb Cameron Jerome header gave them a 1-0 victory at the Pride Park Stadium on Friday.

However, it remains finely balanced going into Monday's second leg at Craven Cottage with Derby evens to reach Wembley and Fulham 19-20.
