With Javi Gracia already an early casualty at Watford, there is now a wide-open look to bwin’s Premier League next manager sacked odds.
Steve Bruce, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Roy Hodgson and Marco Silva are all 6/1 co-favourites to be the second boss to leave his post this season.
Newcastle go into this weekend’s game with Brighton having slipped back into the bottom three after last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Liverpool.
The Magpies have faced some tough fixtures so far and Bruce is hoping United will now find the Seagulls more conducive company to ease his sack race odds.
He said: “We’re at home, it’s a wonderful opportunity and let’s hope we can get our first home win.”
Manchester United will be desperately hoping their trip to West Ham goes better than the one last September, when they were soundly beaten 3-1 at the London Stadium.
The Red Devils are on a winless away run that stretches back to the jaw-dropping victory at PSG in March, but Solskjaer remains upbeat.
“Why should we as coaches be concerned? We’re looking forward to things, looking for solutions,” Solskjaer said.
“I’ve never been concerned about anything, really. I don’t walk around and worry about things. Not at all.
“I’m looking what we can do to improve. I’ve never been a worrier.”
Hodgson keen to forget Spurs thrashing
Crystal Palace play host to Wolves this weekend and Roy Hodgson will be keen to erase the memories of a 4-0 thrashing at Tottenham last time out.
He said after that loss: “It’s one of those games that we will just have to write off and learn from and hold our hands up and admit we were beaten by a better team.
“The fact is we mustn’t get carried away with results. For us, it’s going to be a very long, hard fight to stay in this league and there will be plenty of games like this where we play teams with power and intensity.”
The early stages of the season have once again seen a dramatic difference between Everton’s home and away form, prompting a cut in Silva’s price in the Premier League sack race betting.
They have taken maximum points from two Premier League matches at Goodison – making it six wins in a row across two seasons – but managed only one point from three games on the road.
The latest disappointment was last weekend’s 3-1 loss at Bournemouth and Silva shares the fans’ frustration that the situation continues.
“It’s something we are working on to change but it’s not just for us that it’s really tough to play away from home in the Premier League,” he commented.
“We improved last season. My opinion is it’s not good enough and we want to improve this season again.
“It’s up to us to learn from the things we didn’t do so well, to react and to achieve a different result.”
Aston Villa boss Dean Smith and Wolves supremo Nuno Espirito Santo are then quoted at 10/1 in bwin’s Premier League next manager sacked odds.
