Bookies William Hill say United are odds-on to avoid relegation, following today's 3-0 win at Wigan.

The Hammers are priced at 8/11 to survive, whilst the Latics are now 4/9.

Charlton - thrashed 4-1 at Blackburn this afternoon - are now 8/1 ON to follow already relegated Watford through the trap door, whilst Fulham - who play at Arsenal tomorrow on the back of just one win in their last 15 outings - have seen their odds for survival shorten to 2/5.

Sheffield United - whose 1-0 win over the Hornets today almost certainly guarantees their surivival - are now way out at 12/1 to be relegated.
