Mauricio Pellegrino takes his struggling Southampton side to Watford today, in what is being rumoured to be his last match in charge if things go wrong.
Pellegrino is the odds on favourite in the sack race, he is currently a best price of 4/6 with Paddy Power to be next Premier League manager to be shown the door.
The Southampton boss took on the mantle of favourite in this market after Stoke relieved Mark Hughes of his duties after last weekend’s 2-1 defeat away to Coventry City in the FA Cup.
Ironically, the second favourite in next manager to be sacked betting is Pellegrino’s opposite number today, Watford’s Marco Silva. Paddy Power have the Portuguese at 6/1, followed by Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, who is 7/1.
