Jose Mourinho now odds-on to win Premier League Sack Race

Mourinho favourite to be next Premier League boss to leave his club after 3-0 defeat against Spurs

UPDATE 28.08.18
Jose Mourinho is now odds-on to be the first Premier League manager out of a job following Manchester United’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

A brace from Lucas Moura and an opener from Harry Kane helped Spurs enjoy an emphatic victory, with Mourinho in a defiant mood after the match although he admitted there are issues in defence and that he doesn’t know his best central defenders.

William Hill go 10/11 that Mourinho wins the Sack Race, although it appears that the Portuguese is remaining in charge for now, with Mark Hughes trading at 9/2 with William Hill and it could be that the Southampton manager is first to go.

Rafael Benitez is another interesting runner at 6/1 and the Spaniard might be close to throwing in the towel although he remains committed to a contract which will run through to 2019.

There is something rotten in the state of Salford, with Manchester United following up an unconvincing 2-1 win over Leicester with a 3-2 reverse at the hands of Brighton on Sunday.

While the season is only two games old, it is clear that the Red Devils are all at sea, with Paul Pogba amazingly claiming that the Seagulls had more desire when it came to the weekend defeat.

It appears that Jose Mourinho could be nearing the end of his tenure at Old Trafford, with Unibet going as short as 3/1 that the Portuguese is the next Premier League manager to leave his post.

Paddy Power offer a meatier 9/2 although it appears that the writing could be on the wall for a manager who has publicly criticised several of his players including Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.

Some of the defending against Brighton was poor and United are now 25/1 on the outright market after losing ground on Manchester City and Chelsea this weekend.

They now have a crunch clash with Tottenham on Monday and defeat in this match could see the board act decisively and look for a new manager.

All odds were correct at time of posting.
