Burnley 11/2 to avoid relegation after Brentford victory and Nottingham Forest points deduction

We have priced Burnley up at 11/2 to avoid relegation from the Premier League following Nottingham Forest's four-point deduction for breaching Premier League spending rules.

Vincent Kompany's side were joint-bottom of the Premier League heading into their weekend encounter with out-of-form Brentford at Turf Moor.

They had picked up just 14 points from 28 Premier League matches and were winless in 10 games. Only one of their three Premier League wins had come on home soil and an immediate return to the Championship was becoming a case of 'when' and not 'if'.

Sitting 19th in the table, they were seven points behind Luton in 18th and 10 points behind Nottingham Forest and the safety of 17th place.

However, the Clarets picked up their first victory of 2024 as they overcame Brentford 2-1, with goals from Jacob Bruun Larsen and David Datro Fofana helping Burnley on their way to a rare three points.

Coupled with Nottingham Forest being docked four points, Kompany will now have increased optimism that his side can come up with the most unlikely of escapes.

Burnley's survival chances remain slim but their 10-point deficit has become five points in a matter of days and with Luton, Nottm Forest, Everton and Brentford all struggling for form, an unlikely opportunity has presented itself.
