Today’s 1-0 defeat for Crystal Palace at the hands of Burnley has left the Eagles with no points from their first 4 matches, without even 1 goal, and make Dutchman, de Boer the odds on favourite to be the first Premier League manager out the door in the sack race.
Somewhat remarkably, Palace aren’t even bottom of the Premier League table, despite not managing a goal or point so far this season, that dubious distinction goes to West Ham who sit bottom by virtue of goal difference, but with a game in hand.
It might sound fairly cruel after just 4 matches, but unfortunately it is the world that the modern day manager has to live in, and with the financial implications of relegation from the Premier League, it is easy to see why it is such a dangerous environment for job security.
In Premier League Betting, Palace are now 6/5 to be relegated, and de Boer is now as short as 1/4 to be the first man out of the door.
This week sees the return of the Champions League group stages, which means Acca Insurance chances with a full round of matches taking place across Tuesday and Wednesday. In Champions League Betting, holders Real Madrid are the bookies favourites to win the cup again at 4/1.
