Premier League sack race: Odds on the first manager to be shown the door this season

Sunday’s 3-2 defeat to Brighton has piled the pressure on Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils were not just beaten by Brighton – they were outplayed, outthought and outfought on the south coast.

The result leaves United already playing catch-up with their top six rivals, having seen Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham move three points ahead on the back of two wins from two. Furthermore, the result also leaves Mourinho fearing for his job, with many believing this is another slide towards the disaster-ridden third season the Portuguese is so famous for.

But is Mourinho the favourite of all current Premier League bosses to lose his job? We’ve taken a look at the sack race odds to see who is most likely to face the axe first, and you can see the full ranking, courtesy of SkyBet, below…
