There was just one Premier League fixture on Wednesday night but the outcome was always going to have implications at either end of the table. Mike Norman brings us the In-Play odds details as well as the updated markets that have been affected...
"Hull remain the strong 1.182/11 favourites to go down on the Betfair Exchange; Newcastle can be backed at 6.25/1 having been matched at a staggering high of 480.0479/1 during the season."
Sunderland have secured their Premier League status after a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Arsenal this evening, a result that also effectively guarantees the Gunners automatic qualification to the Champions League group stage by finishing third in the table.
Arsene Wenger's men were matched at a low of 1.282/7 to win the game but despite having 20 attempts at goal they rarely threatened to break the deadlock, registering no more than a few shots on target only to find Black Cats keeper Costel Pantilimon in fine form.
The Draw was matched at a high of 7.06/1 In-Play, while the 0-0 Correct Score was matched at 24.023/1.
It's the second successive season the Sunderland have completed the great escape and tonight's draw for the north-east outfit now means that Sunday's fight to avoid relegation rests between just Hull and Newcastle.
Hull have no alternative but to take three points from their home clash with Manchester United if they want to survive, but Steve Bruce's men now know that should they achieve victory then they will only avoid relegation if Newcastle fail to beat West Ham at St James' Park.
Because of a superior goal difference, a win for Hull and just a draw for John Carver's men will see The Tigers survive at the Magpies' expense.
Hull remain the strong 1.182/11 favourites to go down on the Betfair Exchange; Newcastle can be backed at 6.25/1 having been matched at a staggering high of 480.0479/1 during the season.
