Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta slashed from 50/1 to 10/1 to be next Premier League manager sacked after Wolves defeat

THE next Premier League manager to be sacked market has taken another dramatic twist after the results this weekend.

And it's Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta who's suffered the biggest shift, according to the bookies.


The Spaniard's job looked safe as houses at last week, priced at 50/1 to be the next top-flight manager to lose his position.

But Sunday evening's 2-1 home defeat to Wolves have prompted bookmakers Betfair to slash his price to just 10/1.

Arteta has overseen Arsenal's worst start to a season since 1981.

The club are 14th in the Premier League table and have suffered five losses in their opening ten league fixtures.

Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "After another disappointing result for Arsenal, Mikel Arteta’s odds in the sack race have been slashed from 50/1 to 10/1.

"His position had looked secure but with just the one win in the last six Premier League matches, questions are now being asked of the Spaniard."

Betfair – Next Premier League Manager to leave their Post

  • Chris Wilder – 13/8
  • Slaven Bilic – 5/1
  • Scott Parker – 5/1
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 6/1
  • Steve Bruce – 7/1
  • Mikel Arteta – 10/1
  • Sean Dyche – 12/1
  • Roy Hodgson – 12/1

But Arteta isn't the favourite.

That honour goes to Sheffield United's Chris Wilder, who is 13/8.

West Brom boss Slaven Bilic and Fulham's Scott Parker are next in the betting at 5/1.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer follows at 6/1 despite Sunday's terrific comeback against Southampton at St. Mary's.

Wilder was in contention for the 2019/20 Manager of the Season award but is now the most likely Prem boss to be axed.

The Blades have mustered just a single point this campaign and have suffered NINE defeats including to relegation rivals West Brom.
