Ten Hag second favourite to be first out
Erik ten Hag was backed into 4/1 in the Premier League sack race betting as Manchester United's poor start continued.
The Red Devils have lost their first two matches of the season - 2-1 at home to Brighton and 4-0 away to Brentford and the new boss is already under pressure.
Such are United's problems that Betfair opened special markets on their crisis, with Ten Hag even odds to have left his job by Christmas.
He is 4/1 to be te first English top flight manager to leave their job this season.
Only Southampton's Ralph Hasenhuttl 2/1 is shorter in the market.
United play Liverpool on Monday and the Dutchman will be determined to get a reaction from his players as they take on their fierce rivals.
Gerrard most backed to leave after Villa defeat
Steven Gerrard was backed in the Next Premier League Manager to Leave market after Aston Villa lost their opening match to Bournemouth.
Since Saturday, Gerrard was the most backed manager in the market. He is 15/2 to lose his job and win the English top flight's 2022/23 sack race.
Frank Lampard 4/1, Ralph Hasenhuttl 9/2 and Jesse Marsch 6/1 are all a shorter price than Gerrard.
But punters have been most keen to bet on the Liverpudlian being the first boss out.
Gerrard took over at Villa in November, after a successful spell at Rangers which saw him lead them to their first SPL title for a decade, and made a strong start in his first Premier League job.
But results have taken a nosedive and he has only a 35% win rate, with the Villains prevailing in just 10 of his 28 matches in charge.
Eyebrows were raised at the weekend when Gerrard went public with criticism of Tyrone Mings who the manager stripped of the Villa captaincy during the summer.
Villa travel to Everton - where Gerrard will face his old England team-mate Lampard in a potential sack race clash - in Saturday's televised kick-off in the Premier League.
Mark O'Haire's betting preview of the match will be live on Friday.
