Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag went from 22/1 to 3/1 in Betfair's next Premier League manager to leave market on the same evening as his team reached the FA Cup quarter-finals...

  • Ten Hag in to 3/14.00 to leave next

  • Ratcliffe to decide on manager's future

  • Top 4 or trophy could save Dutchman


Manchester United's Erik ten Hag was backed in from 22/123.00 to 3/14.00 in the Betfair Sportsbook's next Premier League manager to leave market amid speculation that Sir Jim Ratcliffe will replace the Dutchman this summer.

Ratcliffe is United's new minority owner and he, along with his team, are in charge of football operations at Old Trafford.

United 15/2 for top four finish

The club are sixth in the Premier League with 12 matches to play - eight points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.

Qualifiying for the Champions League will determine which players United can attract in the summer and it could also have ramifications for their Financial Fair Play status.

But they are 15/28.50 on Sportsbook to finish in the top four - a damning reflection of bettors' lack of faith in Ten Hag's inconsistent squad.

On Sunday they go to Manchester City in the Premier League - a match we will preview on Betting.Betfair with our experts' tips. But even before we drill down into the Opta stats, the basic facts are not encouraging for Ten Hag: the champions beat United 3-0 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture and, on their last two visits to the Etihad in the league, the Reds have lost 6-3 and 4-1.

Red Devils 8/1 to win the FA Cup

The FA Cup is United's last chance of winning a trophy this season. Lifting the cup at Wembley could be enough to save Ten Hag's job even if, as seems likely, United finish outside of the top four.

They are 8/19.00 to win the FA Cup - something they last did under another Dutchman, Louis Van Gaal, who was sacked shortly afterwards.

The good news for fans is that last night United booked their place in the quarter-finals. The bad news is that they will have to play Liverpool in the last eight.

The match is at Old Trafford but even so Jurgen Klopp's men are 8/111.73 to win.

Last week, Ratcliffe said that, under his leadership, United's aim would be to knock City and Liverpool off their perches. The odds for Sunday's match against the Champions, and the cup tie against Klopp's team, indicate that those words could come back to haunt United's new chief soon.

In the meantime, Ten Hag knows that he is fighting to save his job and to avoid joining the Old Trafford scrapheap of managers who failed to solve United's problems in the past 11 years.
