The race for the Premier League’s top six positions is on.

An intriguing Saturday set of outcomes in the top tier.

When it comes to who will finish in the Premier League top six (and various permutations based on final table standings), the picture is always changing.

These were the Premier League results yesterday (Saturday, April 13, 2024):

Newcastle United 4 Tottenham 0

Brentford 2 Sheff Utd 0

Burnley 1 Brighton 1

Man City 5 Luton 1

Forest 2 Wolves 2

Bournemouth 2 Man U 2

This is the updated Premier League table on this Sunday (14 April 2024) morning:
These are the Premier League fixtures still to be played this weekend:

Sunday 14 April

Liverpool v Palace (2pm)

West Ham v Fulham (2pm)

Arsenal v Villa (4.30pm)

Monday 15 April

Chelsea v Everton (8pm)

So how have the punters and bookies reacted to Newcastle United hammering Tottenham and the other outcomes of rivals in PL matches on Saturday?

Listed below are the updated general Premier League odds now available from the various bookies for this 2023/24 season:

Finish top of the table:

5/4 Man City

7/4 Arsenal

5/2 Liverpool

4,500/1 Tottenham

4,500/1 Aston Villa

Finish top four:

No offers Man City

No offers Liverpool

No offers Arsenal

4/5 Tottenham

5/4 Villa

50/1 Newcastle United

100/1 Man U

250/1 Chelsea

Finish Premier League top six (in brackets what the odds were before results on Saturday):

No offers Man City

No offers Liverpool

No offers Arsenal

1/100 Tottenham (1/100)

1/100 Villa (1/100)

11/10 Newcastle United (9/4)

13/10 Man U (4/5)

6/1 Chelsea (5/1)

33/1 West Ham (33/1)

80/1 Brighton (40/1)

So, after a major shift, Newcastle United are now favourites to finish in the top six, leapfrogging Manchester United in both the Premier League table and the bookmakers’ odds.

Newcastle United are now 23 points off top spot, 10 points off the Premier League top four, and sixth place, ahead of Manchester United on goal difference. If West Ham win Fulham today, they would move one point ahead of Newcastle United, but Eddie Howe’s team will have a game in hand.

Can Eddie Howe and his team take advantage of a remaining schedule (see below) that includes four of their last six games against clubs in the bottom seven?
