Mounrinho backers keep on coming

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been backed into 11/112.00 to be the next Liverpool boss, with his odds tumbling from 25/126.00 on Tuesday afternoon.

Mourinho, who was sacked by Roma earlier this season, said in an exclusive interview last month he was not looking to take a break from the game and is ready for a new job ahead of the 2024-25 campaign.

It would be a far-cry from the management style of current boss Jurgen Klopp, but perhaps now the time is better than any for a drastic change should the club head into a new direction.

Mourinho has been linked with a host of clubs, and international sides since his Roma departure, and remains [16/1] to replace Gareth Southgate after Euro 2024.

He is 80/181.00 to make a shock return to Manchester United, a place where Mourinho has said he as 'unfinished business', though those odds suggest he is not at the top of Sir Jim Ratcliffe's next manager list.

The front-runner in the next Liverpool manager market remains to be Ruben Amorim (15/82.88) though he was heavily odds-on earlier this month.

Key market movers over the last 24 hours would be Arne Slot (4/15.00) and Roberto De Zerbi (5/16.00), whilst we know both Thomas Tuchel (14/115.00) and Xavi (40/141.00) will be looking for a job following the conclusion of this season.

Amorim drifts as De Zerbi backed to join Reds

Ruben Amorim remains the odds-on favourite to become the Next Permanent Liverpool Manager desipte a big drift in his odds amid support for Roberto de Zerbi.

Sporting CP boss Amorim becamse the favourite to replace Jurgen Klopp after Xabi Alonso committed his future to Bayer Leverkusen, and the 39-year-old was as short at 1/51.20 over the weekend to take the Anfield hotseat.

However, Amorim has drifted to 17/20 to become the next Liverpool manager with Brighton boss De Zerbi being backed in to 11/26.50 from a high of 14/115.00.

On Monday afternoon the Athletic's David Ornstein tweeted on X that "Liverpool looks unlikely" when talking about Amorim, saying that West Ham are in ambitious talks to make him their new manager should David Moyes' leave.

Meanwhile, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that De Zerbi could be the leading candidate to take over at Anfield, saying that Liverpool's sporting director Richard Hughes is a big fan of the Italian and once tried to take him to Bournemouth when he was employed by the Cherries.

Other managers in the market to replace Klopp include Feyenoord boss Arne Slott 15/28.50, current Wolves manager Gary O'Neil 12/113.00 and former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel 14/115.00 who will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Alsono and Amorim are leading Reds candidates

Xabi Alonso has drifted to 11/102.11 to be the next Liverpool manager, having been odds-on earlier this year, but remains the favourite to succeed Jurgen Klopp.

It has been a bust few weeks at Anfield where the club have appointed Michael Edwards as their new CEO of Football and Richard Hughes as sporting director.

The Liverpool restructed is well underway but the key question remains - who will be their next manager?

Alonso is continuing to impress at Bayer Leverkusen who are top of the Bundesliga and will play West Ham in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

But Ruben Amorim 10/34.33 is also in the running for the Anfield job. His Sporting Lisbon side are chasing a Portuguese league title. At 39, Amorim is emerging as one of Europe's most sought after young managers.

Klopp's assistant Pep Lijnders and Roberto De Zerbi are the next shortest priced candidates in the market - both at 12/113.00 - so it does look as if the Reds will choose between Alonso and Amorim.

Alonso played for Liverpool from 2004 to 2009, winning the Champions League with the club, and many Reds fans would love to see the Spaniard follow in the footsteps of former-players Kenny Dalgiesh and Graeme Souness went on to manage their club.

Ten Hag into 10/3 to be next manger sacked

Erik ten Hag is into 10/34.33 from 6/17.00 to be the Next Premier League Manager to Leave following Manchester United's 3-1 defeat to Man City on Sunday afternoon.

It's not so much yesterday's result that has promted Ten Hag's odds to be almost halved, it's more to do with the latest rumours that new part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is looking to start next season with a new manager at the helm.

And should those rumours be true, then there's every possibility that Ten Hag will leave before the end of the season, whether that be through the Dutchman resigning or him getting the sack if United fail to close the gap on the teams above them in the table.

As we reported yesterday, Vincent Kompany is the 7/42.75 favourite to be the next manager to leave following Burnley's 0-2 home defeat to Bournemouth.

Should Ten Hag leave United than former Brighton and Chelsea boss Graham Potter is the 7/24.50 favourite to replace him, ahead of Simone Inzaghi at 15/28.50 and another former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel at 9/110.00, who will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Kompany shortens in market to go next

Vincent Kompany has shortened to 7/42.75 in the Next Premier League Manager to Leave market after Burnley fell to another home defeat on Sunday afternoon, losing 2-0 to out-of-form Bournemouth.

The Cherries had gone six games without a win before condemning the Clarets to their 20th league defeat in 27 games.

Kompany's men are 11 points from safety with a much worse goal difference than the teams above them, and it seems that the only decison for the Burnley hierarchy to make is whether to plan for next season in the Championsip with or without their current boss.

Chelsea boss Maurico Pochettino is in to 5/16.00 to be the next manager to leave after the Blues could only manage a 2-2 draw with Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

It's been a terrible season for the Chelsea boss with his side currently sitting in the bottom half of the table and with their only chance of qualifying for Europe next season being to win the FA Cup.

Hodgson resigns from struggling Eagles

Roy Hodgson has left Crystal Palace with immediate effect so that the club can "bring forward their plans to appoint a new manager".

It was widely reported that the 76-year-old would be sacked last Thursday following a run of just two wins in 15 games in all competitions. But Hodgson took ill during training and was later taken to hospital to recover resulting in no decision on his future being made public.

However the former England boss has now stepped down, seemingly so that the club can appoint former Eintracht Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner as soon as possible.

It has been reported that Glasner has already agreed to join Palace though an official announcement is not likely to be made before the Eagles' trip to Everton on Monday night.

Palace are 16th in the table, just five points above the Toffees in 18th, and they're currently available to back at 6/17.00 in the Betfair Sportsbook's Relegation market.

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is the 3/14.00 favourite in the Next Premier League Manager to Leave market, with 'no manager' the 7/24.50 second favourite. Under pressure West Ham boss David Moyes is 5/16.00 ahead of Chris Wilder at 7/18.00.

Howe backed to be next Man United boss

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has been backed in from 33/134.00 to 22/123.00 to be the next Manchester United manger following the news that Magpies sporting director Dan Ashworth will make the switch to Old Trafford.

Ashworth is reportedly a big fan of Howe's management style, and could persuade United's owners - including new 25% majority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe - that Howe would be the ideal man to take over at Old Trafford should the club end Erik ten Hag's reign.

However, while the Ashworth switch to Manchester United looks a done deal, Howe departing Newcastle and Ten Hag leaving the Red Devils both look unlikely at this stage.

The Magpies are seventh in the table and still in a good position to qualify for Europe next season, while United are on a good run of form and now sit just five points behind Aston Villa in fifth.

Newcastle can be backed at 17/10 to record a Top 6 Finish wile Ten Hag's men are 11/43.75 to record a Top 5 Finish. which could be good enough to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Hodgson set to leave Palace

Betfair have suspended betting on the Next Premier League Manager to Leave with reports that former Eintracht Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner is set to replace Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace.

Hodgson has been under immense pressure to save his job, but with Palace in a dreadful run of form and slipping ever closer to the relegation zone it appears that the Eagles hierarchy are set to pull the trigger.

Hodgson was the red hot favourite at 4/111.36 to be the next manager sacked before betting was suspended, though on the Betfair Exchange - which will remain open until a manager leaves - he can be backed at 1.162/13.

As Frankfurt boss Glasner guided the Bundesliga club to Europa League glory in 2022, qualifying the club for the following season's Champions League where they would eventually lose at the Round of 16 stage.

Frankfurt finished seventh in the Bundesliga table at the end of the 2022/23 season with Glasner departing the club following the last game of the campaign.

Palace currently sit 15th in the table, five points above the drop zone, and have a crucial game at relegation rivals Everton on Monday night. The Eagles can be backed at 11/26.50 to go down.

Chelsea 4/1 to be Mourinho's next club

Chelsea have been backed into 4/15.00 to be Jose Mourinho's next club after the former Blues boss was sacked from Roma three weeks ago.

Having managed Chelsea to great success on two previous occasions, a return to Stamford Bridge for a third stint became more likely following Mauricio Pochettino's failure to get the Blues firing as the current manager.

Pochettino was backed into 7/24.50 to be the next Premier League manager to leave following Chelsea's 2-4 home defeat to Wolves on Sunday, the second time in the space of a few days that they'd conceded four goals in a league defeat.

However those odds have now drifted to 11/26.50 with strong support coming for Roy Hodgson, backed from 1/12.00 into 4/111.36 to be sacked by Crystal Palace.

Poch into 9/4 to be next mangaer sacked

Chelsea boss Maurcio Pochettino is 3.211/5 on the Betfair Exchange to be the next Premier League manager sacked following his side's 4-2 defeat to Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues conceded four goals for the second game within a few days after they were thrashed 4-1 at Liverpool in midweek.

The result drops Chelsea down to the bottom half of the table and for the second season running they are much closer to the relegation zone (in terms of points) than they are to the top four.

Chelsea have won just nine of their 23 league games under Pochettino and they've now lost twice to Wolves as well as suffering defeats to struggling sides such as Nottingham Forest, Everton and Brentford.

Only Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is shorter in the betting than Pochettino with the Eagles boss odds-on at 1.684/6 to be the next manager sacked following a heavy defeat to Brighton on Saturday.

Alonso still favourite to replace Klopp

Xabi Alonso remains the odds-on favourite at 4/51.80 to become the Next Permanent Liverpool Manager following Jurgen Klopp's decision to stand down at the end of the season.

However, Alonso's odds have drifted slightly since Friday when he touched 4/61.67, though no other manager has come in for significant support.

Roberto de Zerbi is the new second favourite at 7/18.00 following the news that current Reds assistant manager Pep Lijnders (out to 9/110.00) will also leave the club at the end of the season.

Barcelona boss Xavi has been introduced in the market at 12/113.00 after he - like Klopp - announced that he will resign at the end of the season, though his CV currently reads far less impressive than Alonso's who is managing a lesser club in Bayern Leverkusen.

Next Liverpool Manager Market - Top Five

- Xabi Alonso 4/51.80
- Roberto de Zerbi 7/18.00
- Pep Lijnders 9/110.00
- Xavi 12/113.00
- Julian Nagelsmann 12/113.00

Xabi Alonso heavily backed to replace Klopp

Former Liveprool midfielder Xabi Alonso has been backed at all rates, from an opening 10/111.00 down to 8/111.73, to become Liverpool's Next Manager after the shock news that Jurgen Klopp will resign at the end of the season.

Klopp told the club of his desire to step down in November, but the news has now been made official with all talk now turning to who will replace the German.

Alonso, who is doing an unbeliavable job with Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen appears to be the only name on fans' lips, and seemingly the only manager bettors want to wager on to take over at Anfield.

Klopp's assistant Pep Ljinders is the 7/18.00 second favourite for the job with Roberto de Zerbi next in at 17/29.50, just ahead of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard at 11/112.00.

Next Liverpool Manager Market - Top Five

- Xabi Alonso 8/111.73
- Pep Lijnders 4/15.00
- Roberto De Zerbi 17/29.50
- Steven Gerrard 10/111.00
- Julian Nagelsmann 10/111.00

Hodgson on the brink after 5-0 defeat

Betting has been suspended on Roy Hodgson being the next Premier League manager to lose his job after Crystal Palace were thrashed 5-0 at Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

Hodgson had been backed into 2/13.00 to be the next manager to be sacked following his side's FA Cup exit in midweek, and it appears Eagles fans have lost patience with their veteran manager.

Palace have won just one of their last 12 games in all competitions, and they are just five points above the drop zone having played a game more than Luton Town in 18th.

In the Relegation market on the Betfair Exchange, Crystal Palace can be backed at 8.07/1 to go down behind Sheff United 1.141/7, Burnley 1.384/11, Luton 1.68/13, Nottm Forest 3.02/1 and Everton at 4.67/2.

Will Palace sack Hodgson and appoint Mourinho?

Roy Hodgson is the 2/13.00 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job after Crystal Palace lost 1-0 at Everton in the FA Cup.

Palace are 11.010/1 on the Betfair Exchange to be relegated but they have just two wins since November and the board will be concerned by their poor run of form.

They are 14th in the table and, if they lose heavily at Arsenal on Saturday, the alarm bells with ring even louder.

Jose Mourinho, who was sacked by Roma on Tuesday, is 8/19.00 to manage Palace next. He may not fancy a relegation fight but the Portuguese does like London life and could be tempted by a return to the Premier League.

Newcastle are 7/24.50 to be his next destination and manager Eddie Howe is 4/15.00 to beat Hodgson to the sack.

Erik back into 2/1 to be next manager to leave

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is 2/13.00 to be the next Premier League Manager to Leave after his side lost 2-1 at Nottingham Forest earlier today.

The defeat at the City Ground is the first time United have lost at Forest in the Premier League era, and it leave the Red Devils seventh in the table, just three points above 11th-placed Wolves

United have lost a staggering 23 game in the calendar year, and not for the first time Ten Hag has seemingly come under huge pressure to save his job.

Few were surprised at United's tepid display in Nottingham despite it coming just days after they produced one of their performances of the season in beating Aston Villa 3-2. Inconsistency has become a huge aspect of the Ten Hag era at Old Trafford and it's likely that he needs a strong run of form to save his job in the coming weeks.

However, with United facing top-four chasing Tottenham and Aston Villa, plus in-form sides Wolves and West Ham in their next four league games, stringing a winning run together will be a huge task. Ten Hag's men are out to 13/114.00 to record at Top 4 Finish this term.

Roy Hodgson remains the 1/12.00 favourite to lose his job next, this despite Crystal Palace beating Brentford 3-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Roy now odds-on to be sacked

Earlier today we told you Roy Hodgson was the new favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave their post as his odds were cut to 5/42.25 following defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday.

Well, his price has shortened again this afternoon following reports Steve Cooper was being lined up as the preferred candidate of choice should Hodgson leave. He is now odds-on at 8/111.73.

Cooper to Palace is nothing new, even during this tenure at Nottingham Forest he was heavily linked, and was considered for the position at the end of last season before the Eagles committed to another season of Roy Hodgson. Well, Cooper is now of course a free manager so the fact Palace would not have to pay any compensation seems to have reignited their interest.

Palace host Brentford on Saturday in what is a big game for both sides who have slipped down the table, and with Luton managing back-to-back wins, Palace find themselves just three points above the drop-zone.

Erik Ten Hag's odds have now drifted to 4/15.00 to be the next manager to leave, which looks a lot better for the Dutchman than the odds of 4/61.67 at half-time during the Aston Villa game on Boxing Day.

Hodgson new 5/4 fav to leave

Roy Hodgson is the new favourite in the Betfair Sportsbook's next Premier League manager to leave market after Crystal Palace lost 2-1 at Chelsea.

The Eagles boss was furious after the Blues were awarded a decisive penalty in the 89th minute at Stamford Bridge.

But nothing changes the fact that Palace have not won a Premier League match since 4 November.

Hodgson is the 5/42.25 favourite to become the fourth top flight manager to lose his job this term. He leapfrogged Erik ten Hag 3/14.00 in the market after Man Utd beat Aston Villa on Boxing Day.

Palace are 15th in the Premier League and [7.0] on the Betfair Exchange to be relegated this season.

They host Brentford in another London derby on Saturday and defeat could have serious implications for Hodgson's future.

The 76-year-old came out of retirement in March to take charge of Palace, where he previously enjoyed a successful spell as manager from 2017 to 2021 until the end of the season.

He steered them away from the relegation zone last season, winning five (D3- L2) of his 10 league matches in charge, and was reappointed as permanent manager in the summer.

The team's form has unravelled this season, however, and the odds indicate that he could face an unhappy end to his association with Palace.

Ten Hag evens to leave next

Erik ten Hag is the evens favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job.

The previous favourite, Steve Cooper, was sacked by Nottingham Forest on Tuesday and replaced by Nuno Espirito Santo today.

Ten Hag continues to be under pressure after Manchester United ground out a 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday. It was an improved performance, which brought to an end a run of two consecutive defeats, but the Red Devils have not score in three matches and are enduring a poor season.

They play West Ham on Saturday, in the Premier League's televised lunchtime kick-off, and anything other than a home win will increase speculation that Ten Hag could be on his way out of Old Trafford soon.

United are seventh in the table - 8.415/2 for a top four finish - and have lost seven league matches this season. They crashed out of Europe last week following their worst ever Champions League campaign.

Betfair ambassador Dimitar Berbatov praised United's defensive performance at Anfield in his column today but added that it would count for nothing if they lose to West Ham on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson 4/15.00 follows Ten Hag in Next Manager to Leave market on the Betfair Sportsbook.

The pressure on the Crystal Palace boss eased after they drew at Manchester City last weekend.

He's followed in the betting by Mauricio Pochettino 11/112.00 who will be feeling more comfortable after Chelsea reached the semi-finals of the EFL Cup last night.

Espirito Santo set to replace sacked Cooper

Nottingham Forest have today sacked popular manager Steve Cooper with reports strongly suggesting that former Wolves and Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo has already agreed to take over at the City Ground.

Cooper had been a strong favourite to be the next Premier League Manager sacked, and was only spared getting the boot when his side drew 1-1 with Wolves just over a week ago.

But Friday night's 2-0 home defeat to Tottenham has left Forest just one place and five points above the drop zone, and club owner Evangelos Marinakis has decided to act.

Cooper is just the third managerial change this season following Julen Lopetegui resigning from Wolves just before the start of the campaign, and Sheffiled United replacing Paul Heckingbottom with former boss Chris Wilder just recently.

If as expected, Nuno Santo returns to English football he will have a tough task on his hand with games against Newcastle and Manchester United to come following Saturday's game against in-form Bournemouth. Forest can be backed at 5/23.50 to be relegated.

Potter favourite to replace Ten Hag

Graham Potter is the 4/15.00 favourite to become Manchester United's next manager amid reports that Jim Ratcliffe will sack Erik ten Hag after completing his 25% purchase of the club.

Ratcliffe, whose part takeover would put him in charge of football operations at United, is said to have met with Potter about the prospect of becoming the manager.

Ten Hag is 7/42.75 in the Betfair Sportsbook next Premier League manager to leave market, following United's elimination from the Champions League. Their fate was sealed by their 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich. It was their worst ever campaign in the tournament and one Betfair ambassador Dimitar Berbatov called "embarrassing".

United are sixth in the Premier League - 8.07/1 on the Betfair Exchange for a top four finish - after losing 3-0 to Bournemouth last weekend. On Sunday they play Liverpool in a match the Anfield club are 1.351/3 to win. United have lost seven times in the league already this term.

Potter was sacked by Chelsea in April after just eight months in charge. But there is a consensus that he can be forgiven his reign at the chaotic west London club after his impressive spell at Brighton in which he established the Seagulls as a top flight force.

Reports say Ratcliffe, who remains hopeful of purchasing his 25% stake before the end of 2023, wants Ten Hag to turn around United's form. But if the Dutchman fails to do that, Potter looks like the man most likely to be next in the Old Trafford hotseat.

Ten Hag faces Bayern moment of truth

Erik ten Hag is 2/13.00 to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job as his Manchester United team prepare for a do-or-die Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

The odds on the United manager leaving were cut after their 3-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth on Saturday. Now the Red Devils must pick themselves up to take on the German giants or they will be knocked out of the Champions League and could miss out on Europa League football too.

Our match previewer believes Harry Kane and co. will be too good for United.

If Ten Hag gets the sack Zinedine Zidane is the 7/24.50 frontrunner to replace him, with Graham Potter 4/15.00 and Julian Nagelsmann 9/110.00.

Steve Cooper.jpg

Steve Cooper is the 1/12.00 favourite in the next manager to leave market after his Forest side battled to a 1-1 draw at Wolves on Saturday to end their dismal run of defeats. He had been odds-on after their 5-0 defeat to Fulham in midweek.

Crystal Palace put in a big effort for under-fire Roy Hodgson 8/19.00 but still lost 2-1 to Liverpool. The Eagles have one win in eight (L6D1).

Mauricio Pochettino 10/111.00 is another manager under pressure after Chelsea lost 2-0 at Everton. The defeat followed their 2-1 reverse at Manchester United in midweek and was the Blues' seventh of the season. They sit 12th in the table and are 3.7511/4 to finish in the top six.

Were they to finish outside the top six they would face a second consecutive season out of European competition - something the American owners would surely not accept.

Pochettino will use this week to prepare his players for the visit of Sheffield United on Saturday. That could be a crunch match against the top flight's bottom club.

The next manager to leave market looks fascinating as teams head into the busy Christmas schedule. Several bosses will not be able to relax this festive period and could seem themselves out of a job before the tinsel comes down.

From Manager of the Month to unemployed?

Erik ten Hag is 2.568/5 on the Betfair Exchange to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked after Manchester United produced another horror performance in losing 3-0 at home to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Despite United's lofty position in the Premier League, they've rarely impressed on the field and of their nine wins, eight of them have been by just a single-goal margin and all against teams 10th or lower in the table.

In addition, United are highly likely to be eliminated from the Champions League in midweek in a group that contains FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray.

But it's today's hugely damaging defeat that has promted bettors to back Ten Hag from around 10/111.00 this moring to around 6/42.50 on the Exchange to be sacked next.

And perhap it's only Steve Cooper's perilous position as Nottingham Forest boss that is preventing Ten Hag from being an odds-on favourite in the market.

On Friday Ten Hag was named Premier League Manager of the Month for November after United won all three of their league games without conceding a goal, but few were convinced that the team had completely turned the corner.

And today's defeat to the Cherries, which was greeted with a huge chorus of boos at the final whistle could mean that Ten Hag has managed United at Old Trafford for the last time.

Cooper new favourite to leave next

Steve Cooper is the favourite to be the third Premier League manager of the season to leave his job after Sheffield United confirmed the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom.

Chris Wilder takes over at Bramall Lane with the Blades bottom of the Premier League and 1.111/9 on the Betfair Exchange to be relegated this season.

Cooper's Forest are 6.611/2 for the drop but a run of one win in 10 Premier League matches (L5D4) has put his job in jeopardy.

He is the 5/23.50 favourite in the Betfair Sportsbook Next Manager to Leave market ahead of tomorrow night's trip to Fulham who are directly above Forest in the table in 14th.

Three points for Forest at Crave Cottage would improve Cooper's position but defeat would see his odds to leave shorten and may even seal his fate.

Heck to get sack as Blades hit rock bottom

Sheffield United will sack Paul Heckingbottom and replace him with their former-manager Chris Wilder.

That's according to reports following Saturday's 5-0 defeat to Burnley which saw the Blades go bottom of the Premier League, 1.061/18 on the Betfair Exchange to make an immediate return to the Championship and 1.594/7 to finish the season bottom.

Heckingbottom has been in charge of the Yorkshire club since November 2021 and got them promoted last season as runners-up in the second tier.

He complained after Saturday's defeat about the sale of key players in the summer, which he claimed was motivated by financial rather than footballing considerations.

United are four points from safety, have won only once this season and have a goal difference of minus 28, so his sacking, which is expected to take place today, would be no surprise.

Widler's return is less expected. He became a hero to Blades fans when he took them from League One to the Premier League in a tenure that lasted from 2016 to 2021.

He left them bottom of the Premier League in March 2021 and has since had shortlived and unsuccessful spells in charge of Middlesbrough and Watford.

Sheffield United's next match is at home to Liverpool on Wednesday.

United boss 5/1 after Galatasaray draw

Erik ten Hag is 5/16.00 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job after Manchester United's 3-3 draw against Galatasaray.

The Red Devils are fourth in their group and on the brink of Champions League elimination.

They have won just one of their five matches so far and must beat Bayern Munich in their final game to have any chance of progressing to the knockout rounds.

United are 7.613/2 to qualify from Group A, with Copenhagen 1.645/8 and Galatasaray 2.35/4.

United twice lead Galatasaray by two goals only to make horrendous errors that allowed their opponents back into the game. It was a similar story against Copenhagen last time out in the Champions League.

Goalkeeper Andre Onana, who Ten Hag signed in the summer, was at fault for two goals in Istanbul, although the manager took responsibility for the result afterwards.

If United fail to beat Harry Kane and co. in a fortnight at Old Trafford then Ten Hag may well carry the can for their failure.

They have won five of their last six matches in the Premier League but it is still obvious that they have problems in all areas.

United are 4.84/1 to finish in the top four this season and 2.0421/20 for top six.

On Saturday, they face a difficult trip to Newcastle who beat them in the League Cup earlier this season.

United boss into 5/4 after defeat in Denmark

Erik ten Hag was cut to 5/42.25 to be the Next Premier League Manager to Leave following his side's damaging defeat to Copenhagen in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Manchester United boss was already the 7/42.75 favourite in the market before the defeat in Denmark, but his odds shortened again after a night that started so well for the Red Devils turned into the ultimate footballing disaster.

Rasmus Hojlund had fired United into an early 2-0 lead, but the game changed completely when out-of-form Marcus Rashford received a straight red card for endangering an opponent.

The Danes - who were matched at a high of 80.079/1 in the Match Odds market when two goals down - fought back superbly to win 4-3, leaving United bottom of their Champions League group.

With Bayern Munich certain of finishing top, just one qualification place remains with a trip to Galatasary - a must win game - next up for Ten Hag's men.

Defeat in Turkey will mean United crash out of the competition at the group stage, while a draw would only be good enough if Copenhagen lose to Bayern next time, meaning United would have to beat the Group A winners in their final game and hope that Galatasaray don't beat the Danes.

United can be backed at 11/102.11 to qualify from Group A with Galatasaray at 2/13.00 and Copenhagen at 9/43.25.

Next up in the Premier League for United is a home game against newly-promoted Luton Town. A defeat in that game, or even a draw, will see Ten Hag come under massive pressure to save his job.

Ten Hag 7/4 before Champions League test

Erik ten Hag is the 7/42.75 favourite in the Betfair Sportsbook next Premier League to leave market ahead of Manchester United's crucial Champions League trip to Copenhagen.

Bruno Fernandes grabbed an added time winner as United beat Fulham 1-0 on Saturday.

But United were underwhelming at Craven Cottage against weak opponents and the Betfair odds indicate that Ten Hag is still under pressure.

They taken just three points from their three Champions League matches so far, beating Copenhagen 1-0 last time out, and are in battle to qualify from Group A.

Defeat in Denmark on Wednesday would damage their chances and see Ten Hag under pressure again.

Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom, meanwhile, is out to 15/82.88 to be the next Premier League manager to leave betting after his side's last gasp winner against Wolves.

Ten Hag on the brink after EFL Cup exit

As predicted in Monday's update, Erik ten Hag's odds to be the Next Premier League Manager to Leave have been slashed into 2/13.00 (from 10/111.00) after Manchester United were hammered 0-3 at home to Newcastle on Wednesday night.

The defeat - that knocked United out of the EFL Cup - was made to look all the worse given that Magpies boss Eddie Howe made a plethora of changes to his starting XI and effecitvely fielded a fringe team.

Ten Hag also made changes, but the manner of the defeat, the boos that rung around Old Trafford at the final whistle - by those that were still present - and the United manager's own downbeat demeanour all suggested that this is a man seriously under pressure to save his job.

The Red Devils have won just 50% of their league games this term, with all five of their victories coming via a single-goal margin against teams 10th or lower in the table.

They were extremely fortunate to beat Wolves on the opening weekend of the season, struggled to win at Burnley, required two stoppage-time goals to beat Brentford, had to come from 0-2 down to beat Nottm Forest, and beat rock bottom Sheffield United - who have lost 8-0 and 5-0 this term - by just a 2-1 scoreline.

Not one of their performances this season has hinted that United are ready to challenge the top teams in the league, which makes Ten Hag's suggestion from earlier in the week that great performances are just around the corner completely disillusioned.

United have recent history of sacking manager at this time of the year so all eyes will be on Craven Cottage on Saturday to see if Ten Hag - if indeed he's still in charge at that point - can beat struggling Fulham in the Premier League.

Derby defeat sees Ten Hag axe odds cut

Erik ten Hag was cut from 20/121.00 to 9/110.00 in the next Premier League manager to leave market after Manchester United's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Sheffield United's Paul Heckingbottom is the 3/101.30 favourite but it is impossible to escape the view that the Red Devils are going backwards under Ten Hag.

They were dismal as they suffered their fifth league defeat of the season and their third at Old Trafford. Ten Hag must take his share of the blame for a United performance that showed that United are light years behind the champions.

His signings - the disappointing Mason Mount and Sofya Amrabat in particular - and team selections are proving to be unsuccessful. Against Pep Guardiola, Ten Hag had no solutions to City's superiority.

United need to react on Wednesday when they host Newcastle in the League Cup. If they lose again, Ten Hag's exit odds will shorten further.

Rock bottom Hecking 2/13 to be sacked next

Paul Heckingbottom is long odds-on at 2/131.15 to be the Next Premier League Manager to Leave after Sheffield United were thrashed 5-0 by Arsenal on Saturday.

The defeat leaves the Blades rock bottom of the table on just one point, having drawn one and lost nine of their opening 10 games since returning to the Premier Leauge.

The 29 goals they've conceded means Heckingbottom's team are shipping almost exactly three goals per game on average.

The Blades boss was widely expected to be sacked following his side's 8-0 home defeat to Newcastle last month, but having survived the chop that time around the pressure really is on Heckingbottom now after a further four straight defeats.

Earlier this week it was Bournemouth boss Andoni Iraola who was odds-on at 8/111.73 to be sacked, but he was alowed to take charge of yesterday's game at home to Burnley in which the Cherries won 2-1, easing the pressure slightly on the Spanish manager.

Iraola is out to 15/28.50 to be the next manager sacked, just ahead of his opposite number from yesterday - Vincent Kompany - who is now 9/110.00 third favourite in the market.

Winless Cherries souring on Iraola?

Bournemouth boss Andoni Iraola is 8/111.73 to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job as rumours circulate that he will be sacked.

The Cherries are winless after nine games under the Spaniard whose reign so far has been anything but sweet.

The Mail reported today that he will become the first Premier League manager this season to be dismissed (Julen Lopetegui, the only managerial departure so far, quit Wolves).

Bournmeouth have taken just three points, drawing three matches and losing six. The latest defeat, at home to Wolves on Saturday, was particularly troubling for the south coast club.

In the summer, they sacked Gary O'Neil, who is now manager of Wolves, after he did a good job and kept them in the Premier League. Iraola was regarded as an upgrade but so far that has not turned out to be true.

Bournemouth are 19th in the Premier League and 2.3411/8 on the Betfair Exchange to to be relegated. Only Sheffield United 1.211/5 and Luton 1.211/5 are shorter prices.

The Blades sit one place below Bournemouth in the Premier League and manager Paul Heckingbottom is evens in the sack race market.

Sheffield United's defeat to Manchester United on Saturday means the south Yorkshire club have just one point from their nine matches so far. They are 2.166/5 to finish bottom of the Premier League.

Blades boss odds-on but ETH and Iraola also fancied

Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom shortened to 8/151.53 in the Next Premier League Manager to Leave market after the Blades lost 3-1 at Fulham on Saturday, a result that left them rock bottom of the table.

United are one of only two teams - Bournemouth being the other - not to win a single league game this season as we enter the second international break.

The Blades are trading as short as 1.241/4 in the Betfair Exchange's Relegation market, and if the betting is any guide, the club may look to change their manager sooner rather than later in an attempt to change their fortunes on the pitch.

Despite a win on Saturday, Manchester United boss Eric ten Hag remains the second favourite in the sack race market with his odds drifting slightly from 9/25.50 to 5/16.00.

That is in large because of another poor performance by the Red Devils, who required goals in the 93rd and 97th minute to beat Brentford 2-1.

The new third favourite in the market is Bournemouth boss Andoni Iraola, who is now 13/27.50 after his side lost 3-0 at Everton on Saturday afternoon.

The Cherries, like Sheffield United, are without a win in their eight league games this season and currently sit second bottom of the table on just three points.

Man U manager exit odds shorten after defeat

Erik ten Hag shortened to 9/25.50 to become the next Premier League manager to leave his job following Manchester United's second successive home defeat.

The Red Devils were beaten 3-2 by Galatasaray in the Champions League on a chaotic night at Old Trafford. The loss came three days after United went down 1-0 to Crystal Palace there in the Premier League.

Ten Hag is second only to Sheffield United's Paul Heckingbottom 4/61.67 in the Next Manager to Leave market on the Betfair Sportsbook.

United have now lost two in two in the Champions League and six in nine over all. They are in action at Old Trafford in the Premier League again on Saturday against Brentford. Defeat in that match would increase the pressure on Ten Hag and see his next manager to leave odds shorten again.

Ten Hag made a good first impression in his debut season, steering United to a third-place finish in the Premier League, winning the League Cup and reaching the FA Cup final. But United are out to 4.94/1 on the Betfair Exchange to finish in the Premier League top four in 2023/24.

He made ruthless decisions in the summer, including jettisoning David de Gea in favour of signing Andre Onana. So far, the new goalkeeper has been a disastrous signing and was at fault for goals in both of United's Champions League matches.

There is disharmony in the United camp, with Jadon Sancho's falling out with Ten Hag still unresolved. Last night, United made the controversial decision to play Antony off the bench at the same time as he is being investigated over domestic violence allegations.

It has been a tumultuous start to the season so far for United and needs to improve quickly. The experiences of Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in December 2018, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who went in November 2021, show that autumn and early winter can be a dangerous time for Red Devils managers.

Klopp 10/1 with Nagelsmann fav

Jurgen Klopp is 10/111.00 on the Betfair Sportsbook to become Germany's shock next manager after they parted company with Hansi Flick following Saturday's humiliating 4-1 defeat to Japan.

Germany host Euro 2024 next summer, with qualifying continuing tonight, and are in a state of crisis with just nine months to go.

Klopp would be the dream appointment and could have an immediate impact on the national squad. However, the German FA know that he is committed to Liverpool and prising him out of Anfield will be extremely difficult.

Julian Nagelsmann is the 6/52.20 to get the job. He has been out of work since Bayern Munich sacked him in March and featured prominently in at least two English Premier League next manager markets in the summer.

The ex-Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner comes next in the market at 4/15.00 and, with no job at the moment, could be a quick and straightforward appointment if Nagelsmann decides that, at 36, the chance to manage his country has arrived too soon.

Then there is Rudi Voller 6/17.00 who won the World Cup with Germany as a player and managed them from 2000 to 2004. He is in temporary charge as caretaker manager, having stepped into the role from his position as director of the national team, and will be in charge when they play France in a friendly tomorrow.

Dyche into 6/4 to be next manager sacked

Everton boss Sean Dyche is the new 6/42.50 favourite in the Next Premier League Manager to Leave market after the Toffees failed to beat newly-promoted Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

Dyche's men have made a winless start to the new season, losing their first three games without scoring a single goal before today's 2-2 draw with the Blades.

Today's result comes just a day after Everton lost Alex Iwobi and Neal Maupay on transfer deadline day, leaving Dyche's squad looking relatively thin and without much firepower in attack.

Dyche's opposite number today, Paul Heckingbottom, is the 4/15.00 second favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked, and both clubs are among the front runners in the Betfair Exchange's Relegation market; Sheffield United are 1.51/2 and Everton can be backed at 2.767/4.

O'Neil set to be new Wolves boss following Lopetegui departure

Julen Lopetegui has become the first managerial casualty of the new Premier League season, leaving Wolves six days before their opening game at Manchester United on Monday night.

Lopetegui leaves by mutual consent with the club accepting, "their differences of opinion on certain issues and agreed that an amicable end to his contract was the best solution".

As we reported yesterday, former Bournemouth boss Gary O'Neil is set to replace Lopetegui with an official announcement expected as soon as today.

O'Neil worked wonders to keep the Cherries in the Premier League last season with what was perceived as one of the weakest squads in the division. With Wolves having little money to spend this summer, O'Neil is expected to have another season fighting against relegation with his new club.

Wolves can be backed at 23/103.30 in the Betfair Sportsbook's Relegation market.

O'Neil lined up as Lopetegui nears Wolves exit

Gary O'Neil has held talks with Wolves about succeeding Julen Lopetegui who has shortened again to 1/41.25 to leave the Molineux club.

Betfair first Premier League manager to leave market saw the Spaniard backed in amid fresh reports that he would make his exit imminently.

Now O'Neil, who was sacked by Bournemouth earlier this summer after guiding them to a 15th-placed finish after taking over when they were in a relegation battle, has been linked with Wolves.

As reported below, Lopetegui has been unhappy about Wolves' transfer activity this summer with key players leaving and a shortage of arrivals.

Wolves finished 13th last season under the former-Real Madrid and Spain boss, but his differences with the Molineux board appear to be irresolvable, and O'Neill looks set to get another crack at Premier League management.

Spanaird set to walk away before season

Wolves manager Julien Lopetegui is said to be contemplating walking away from the club before the season begins - which is on Friday! Wolves, though, don't kick off until Monday against Manchester United.

He is now the 4/61.67 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave, replacing David Moyes - now 7/24.50 - at the top of the market.

The sale of Ruben Neves and the lack of incomings are said to have the former Real Madrid manager scathing, and having previously turned the role down before accepting the role earlier this year, it looks to be a short tenure for the Spainard.

It remains to be seen if Wolves can persuade him to stick around, but the market now feels it is more likely he will go than stay. Reports this morning suggested Gary O'Neil was been looked at as a replacement should he walk.

Wolves endured a torrid season last year, and they are currently priced up at 5/23.50 to be relegated in 2023-24.

Moyes backed in sack race market

A flurry of bets on Friday lunch-time saw David Moyes cut from 10/111.00 to 6/42.50 to leave West Ham.

The Hammers boss is now the favourite in the Premier League 2023/24 sack race market just two months after he steered them to Europa Conference League glory.

He is reported to have clashed with West Ham's new technical director Tim Steidten and co-owner David Sullivan over their lack of signings this summer.

West Ham sold Declan Rice for a British record £105m but so far the club have been slow to bring in players.

Moyes wants James Ward-Prowse 1/31.33 and Manchester United pair Harry Maguire 2/13.00 and Scott McTominay 17/20.

Those odds show that all three could yet join West Ham but Moyes is becoming impatient and tensions are said to be rising between club and manager in East London.

Lopetegui odds-on to be first manager out

With one week to go until the start of the season Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui is reportedly considering his position at the club.

And the betfair Sportsbook makes him 4/61.67 to be the first manager to leave his post.

Wolves are operating under strict financial controls with a Financial Fair Play fine looming if they exceed a certain amount of spend and have bought only two players this summer.

Club chairman Jeff Shi has written an open letter to fans explaining the situation but it looks messy and the club could find themselves out of a manager and in crisis mode soon.

Alonso backed for Hammers gig

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has been backed into 15/28.50 from 33/134.00 to be the next West Ham United manager.

Alonso, currently in charge of Bayer Leverkusen, was rumoured to have turned down the Spurs job earlier in the summer in order to stay in Germany. He only joined the club in the middle of last season, and finished very strongly.

Perhaps the sale of Moussa Diaby to Aston Villa has Alonso questioning the ambition of his current side.

There are no signs that David Moyes is set to depart West Ham anytime soon after last season's European glory, though they have a thin squad and multiple competitions to juggle this season.

He did nearly depart last season, so a poor start again may cause the West Ham hierarchy to act.

Graham Potter is the 5/23.50 favourite to be the next West Ham boss, with Will Still now 13/27.50 and Michael Carrick 7/18.00.

Silva to remain as Fulham boss

Marco Silva has reportedly turned down a two-year deal, woth £40m in total, to join Al-Ahli in the Saudi Pro League.

Silva was available to back at 2/13.00 in the first Premier League Manager to leave market before betting was suspended on Friday afternoon due to reports that he was in advanced talks with the Saudi club.

But it now appears that either those reports were wide of the mark, or Silva himself has decided to have a u-turn and stay with the Cottagers.

We will have the latest betting news as soon as the market is reintroduced on the Sportsbook.

Betting suspended with Silva expected to join Saudi Pro League

Without a ball even being kicked in the new Premier League season the Betfair Sportsbook have suspended betting on Marco Silva being the first manager to leave their post.

Fulham boss Silva is in talks with Saudi Pro League club Al-Ahli over a proposed two-year deal to become their new manager, with a reported £20m a year salary on the table.

Should he leave - as it is expected he will - the Cottagers will be without a manager with just three weeks to go before the start of the new season.

And with star striker Aleksander Mitrovic also desperate to join the Saudi Pro League, Fulham could be in turmoil as the new season approaches.

The Cottagers recorded a top half finish in the Premier League last term but they can be backed at 4/15.00 to do the same this campaign, though that price is exactly the same as they are to be relegated.

Silva backed into 2/1 after Saudi approach

Fulham boss Marco Silva has been the subject of a big gamble this afternoon to be the first Premier League Manager to leave after reports emerged that he's been offered a two-year deal worth £40m to join Saudi side Al-Ahli.

Silva is now the new 2/13.00 favourite in the market - slashed from 6/17.00 - after the Betfair Sportsbook took a plethora of bets on the 46-year-old.

If he leaves, Silva will be the first serving Premier League manager tempted away by the Saudi Pro League, and will join former Premier League manager Steven Gerrard in Saudi Arabia.

Silva has just one year remaining on his contract with Fulham, and it's been reported that he has a £6m release clause which will be no obstacle to the mega rich Saudi clubs.

Silva deposes Jolen Lopetegui at the head of the market, though the Wolves boss remains second favourite at 6/17.00 to be the first Premier League manager to leave.

Wolves boss 9/2 to depart first

Wolves manager Julien Lopetegui has been priced up as the early favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave a 9/25.50. The reason behind this is the rumours he was close to leaving at the end of last season despite keeping them in the Premier League.

Lopetegui sought further assurances about the future of the club as well as wishing for a greater say on transfers. Since the club was taken over in 2017, many of their transfer dealings have come via super-agent Jorge Mendes.

However, the issues were seemingly resolved at the top of the summer with Lopetegui committing to staying on. Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom 6/17.00 is next on the list, who himself has been vocal about the lack of funds seemingly available.

Roy Hodgson is 9/110.00 despite only confirming this week he is staying for another season at Palace, whilst Mauricio Pochettino is as large as 25/126.00 in what would suggest is a different approach for Chelsea's new owners.

Luton - who are the heavy favourites for relegation - are managed by Rob Edwards. Expectations are likely to be low and his odds of 10/111.00 to be the first manager to go reflect he isn't under huge pressure to perform miracles.
