LAST  season’s fight to avoid the drop was a thriller and who can forget the last-day chopping and changing that ended up with Blackpool dropping out.

It promises to be as closely-fought this time with the focus again on promoted sides QPR, Norwich and Swansea.

Of the three I think Swansea will struggle most. Brendan Rodgers’ side play some good stuff but the step up could be too tough for the likes of Stephen Dobbie, Danny Graham and Craig Beattie.

Norwich have the same problem with little Premier League experience in their ranks. However, Paul Lambert has enjoyed an incredible two years at Carrow Road and may just about keep them up.

Championship winners QPR have the benefit of having Neil Warnock in charge and he knows what it takes to survive.

But he may rely too much on Abel Taarabt who will be a marked man and I can’t see them finishing ahead of three teams.

So it’s two out of three of the promoted sides to be relegated – probably Swansea and QPR – with Blackburn.

Steve Kean’s men stayed up on the last day and Indian owners Venky’s promised him the earth but only bought David Goodwillie.

Rovers can’t rely on the Scotland kid and have actually sold a £16million man in Jones to Old Trafford. Kean picked up 20 points from 20 games after replacing Sam Allardyce and that’s relegation form.

Best relegation odds: Swanse 8-13, bet365; Norwich 4-5, bet365; QPR 13-8, Ladbrokes; Wigan 2-1, William Hill; Wolves 3-1, bet365; Blackburn 10-3, Betfred; West Browm 9-2, Hills; Bolton 11-2, Paddy Power; Newcastle 6-1, Blue Square; Stoke 10-1, Ladbrokes.
