Man Utd news: Solskjaer slashed from 25/1 to favourite in Premier League sack race

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has gone from being one of the safest manager's in the Premier League to now being the most at risk.

The Manchester United boss was priced at 25/1 in the sack race after guiding the Red Devils to a third-place finish last season.


But after a disastrous start to the season, which has seen a messy transfer window and a heavy 6-1 defeat at home to Spurs, Solskjaer is now favourite to be the first manager sacked this season at 2/1.

Man Utd lost their first league game to Crystal Palace and were fortunate to pick up three points away to Brighton before being thrashed by Spurs.

The Norwegian is odds-on at 1/2 with Paddy Power to be sacked before Christmas – with the bookies seeing his departure as nailed on.

Meanwhile Solskjaer is just 9/4 to no longer be Man Utd by the end of the month.

Premier League sack race – odds

Paddy Power odds

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 2/1

Scott Parker: 3/1

Sean Dyche 5/1

Slaven Bilic: 7/2

Frank Lampard: 10/1

David Moyes: 11/1


David Moyes was the initial favourite to be sacked after a summer of turmoil at West Ham.

But emphatic back-to-back wins in the Premier League has made him safe for the time being after a shock 4-0 win over Wolves and a 3-0 victory against Leicester.

Frank Lampard is under pressure to compete at the top of the table after spending big money at Stamford Bridge.

But with a convincing 4-0 win over Crystal Palace ahead of the international break, Lampard will hope this will be the start of a winning run for the Blues.
