Premier League Sack Race: Odds Slashed on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be the Premier League’s next manager to be sacked to 14/1 from 40/1.
This defeat has significantly diminished Manchester United’s optimism from earlier in the season, and the manager is now facing increased pressure. Many questioned if it would be possible for the Red Devils to have a good chance at competing for the title after an impressive transfer window. However, after losing 3 points in the home game to Aston Villa, those hopes lie in tatters.
At the moment, Mikel Arteta is still the favourite with odds of 5/1 to be next to leave following the disappointing season launch from Arsenal. The second favourite is Steve Bruce, who is close behind with odds of 10/3 since Newcastle is struggling. Currently, the Magpies have only picked up 3 points this season, leaving them firmly in the dreaded relegation zone.
