Maurizio Sarri ensured Marco Silva's stay at the top of the sack race betting market was short lived, as the Chelsea manager became the new favourite.
Previous Chelsea mangers have been sacked for far less than the 6-0 thrashing, Sarri's team suffered at the Etihad earlier today. This result comes just 11 days after their humiliating 4-0 defeat away to Bournemouth. Suggesting it was a touch more than just catching City on one of those days.
Prior to Sarri's horror show in Manchester earlier, it was Everton's Marco Silva's turn in the hot seat. Everton are in woeful form.
This was compounded by his team's 1-0 defeat away at Watford on Saturday, the very side Everton upset in their pursuit of Silva.

Chelsea boss Sarri new sack race favourite at even money
Sarri is Even money with Betfair to be the next manager to leave his position. The same two firms make Silva 11/4, and Leicester's Claude Puel 7/2. Almost remarkably, no manager to leave for the rest of the season is 4th in the betting, at 9/1.
Assuming Sarri survives Monday (yes, Chelsea could act that quick in my opinion), his team's next match is away to Malmo in the Europa League (a competition Chelsea will probably still be in next season). Next is the FA Cup tie at home to Manchester United, and then the Malmo second leg.
They then face City again in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday 24th February. Their next Premier League match is a home fixture against Spurs on 27th February, seventeen days from now.
Curiously, this represents a good chance to change the manager before the next league match.
Seventeen days is a long break in football at this stage of the season. Yes, there are important cup matches during this period, but with the league taking precedent, anything might happen.
Everton also have more than two weeks to their next match. Their next outing is a visit to Wales to take on Cardiff on 26th February. This is another long period without football. The sort of which is plenty long enough to get a new manager's feet well and truly under the table!
