Bookmakers slash Burnley's odds for Premier League survival after Everton lose Merseyside derby to Liverpool

Burnley’s hopes of avoiding the drop have been given a boost following the Clarets’ win over Wolves — while relegation rivals Everton remained in the bottom three following defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

According to Parimatch, managerless Burnley were 11/10 to stay up prior to the weekend, but their odds have since been shortened to 4/9 following Matej Vydra’s winner against Wolves, making them favourites ahead of the Toffees to achieve Premier League safety.

Frank Lampard’s side are two points adrift with a game in hand after Andy Robertson and Divock Origi ensured the Reds claimed the Merseyside bragging rights to keep the pressure on defending champions Manchester City.

The Clarets are also priced at 7/4 to be relegated back to the Championship, according to British Gambler, with Everton at 8/7 while Leeds United, who face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday evening, as wide as 5/1.
