Premier League next manager sacked odds: Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo favourite for AXE after overnight price drop

WOLVES manager Nuno Espirito Santo is the new outright favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked after a huge price shift overnight.

Nuno's side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, leaving Wolves in 14th position having taken only three points from the last 24 on offer.

They've also registered one Premier League victory in 11 matches since centre-forward Raul Jimenez fractured his skull against Arsenal in November.

The Portuguese manager was previously a double-figure 14/1 to be the next top-flight boss sacked.

But with Wolves potentially being pulled into a relegation battle – bookmakers Paddy Power have slashed his price to just 7/4.

Asked if it was his toughest spell in charge at Molineux, Nuno replied: "For sure, yes. Not only for us but for all the teams.

"The edge the atmosphere that gives you. But honestly, is it the biggest challenge ahead of us? Yes it is. We should step up for it.

"It takes hard work and commitment from all of us. It’s something we have to sit down and talk about. We must improve fast."

Sam Allardyce has also seen his odds tumble after Saturday's disappointing 2-2 draw against fellow relegation candidates Fulham.

The Baggies have picked up one win in nine games since Big Sam replaced Slaven Bilic at The Hawthorns.

The Midlands club remain in 19th position, four points above rock-bottom Sheffield United and six adrift of safety.

Allardyce was available at 16/1 before the weekend, but Paddy Power have shortened his price significantly to 6/1.

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce is now second favourite in the betting market.

Saturday's surprise 2-0 victory over European-challenging Everton at Goodison Park has offered the 60-year-old a reprieve.

The Toon were slipping towards the relegation zone having lost their past five Premier League games.

But the three points has seen Bruce's previously heavy odds-on price of 8/15 drift back out to 5/2.

After the result, Bruce said: "There's no disputing it – it's been very difficult.

"When you're on a bad run in the Premier League it's difficult whether you're Mikel Arteta or Frank Lampard.

"You have to be brave and make these decisions. We're trying to be more on the front foot and push up the pitch. That's something we want to do more. We're a lot better.

"The players have enjoyed the change, certainly by looking at that performance today. What you need is a result to go with it, so today of course everybody's happy."

Roy Hodgson is offered at 4/1 despite the weekend win, while Graham Potter and Chris Wilder are priced at 15/2 and 10 respectively with Scott Parker further back at 12s.
