Solskjaer odds SLASHED - What are the odds on the next manager to be sacked?

‘Where is the loyalty?’ – Solskjaer against Aguero move after wild Man Utd rumours

The odds on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being the first manager sacked in the Premier League have dropped significantly following Manchester United's 1-0 loss against Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

An embarrassing Champions League loss to Young Boys was followed by a laboured Premier League victory over West Ham and then a League Cup defeat to the same opponents - and that was before the Premier League defeat against Villa on Saturday.

Questions have already been raised about his suitability for the role, and has he has steadily dropped in price from the start of the season. He was previously 60-1, then 40-1, and now finds himself at 14-1.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta remains the most likely among his Premier League peers to lose his job next.

Although the Spanish manager has stabilised his side’s form with three wins in a row, serious questions still remain as to whether the team can defeat bigger clubs.

Ahead of this weekend’s North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur, odds on Arteta losing his job stand at just 5/2.

There are three teams in the league who are yet to win a game this season - Newcastle, Burnley and Norwich.

The Canaries have only picked up a single point so far and Daniel Farke is the fourth favourite to get the sack at 15/2.

The second-favourite is Steve Bruce, who remains an unpopular figure at Newcastle. If their poor form continues it seems inevitable he will be relieved of his duties.

Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel remains well entrenched at Stamford Bridge despite the loss to Man City – he is an 80/1 shot to leave the club next – while Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and West Ham’s David Moyes are as long as 66/1.
