Premier League sack race – Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 1/5 favourite after harrowing Watford defeat

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER ishuge 1/5 favourite to be the next manager sacked in the Premier League following the 4-1 defeat to Watford.

That's according to bookmakers Betfair who've priced Solskjaer at 1/5 to be the SIXTH Premier League boss of the campaign to leave their position.

Xisco Munoz, Steve Bruce, Nuno Espirito Santo, Daniel Farke and Dean Smith have all been relieved of their duties so far this term.

And the Manchester United boss is the most likely to follow in their footsteps after another big defeat.

Solskjaer's tenure is hanging by a thread after a series of disappointing results, including defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City and now Watford.

The Red Devils are in seventh position having taken 17 points from a possible 36 and sit 12 behind leaders Chelsea with a lowly -1 goal difference.

Next manager sacked odds – Betfair

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 1/5
  • Claudio Ranieri: 13/2
  • Rafa Benitez: 8/1
  • Brendan Rodgers: 12/1
  • Marcelo Bielsa: 16/1
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl: 20/1
  • Dean Smith: 20/1
  • Eddie Howe: 25/1
  • Thomas Frank: 33/1
  • No Manager To Leave: 33/1

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is odds-on to replace Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

Watford's Claudio Ranieri is second in the betting market at odds of 13/2 after picking up a big win against United.

Ranieri replaced Xisco on October 4 but had managed just one victory in four matches for the trigger-happy Hornets before today.

Rafa Benitez is also offered at 8s with Everton struggling for results ahead of a difficult run of fixtures.

The injury-plagued Toffees are winless in their last five and play Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester in their next seven outings.

Rodgers is next at 12/1 after a defeat to Chelsea today.
