Everton’s Marco Silva is the 1/4 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave their current job following his side’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester on Sunday.
Despite taking the lead against high-flying Leicester, a Kelechi Iheanacho last-minute Foxes winner ensured Silva’s side left the King Power Stadium empty-handed.
Everton’s loss leaves them 17th in the table, just two points above the drop zone, while they have now lost eight in the league this season.
David Moyes and Eddie Howe are among the names reportedly being lined up to replace Silva, who has seen his odds drop from 10/11 last week.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is next in line at 6/1 to leave his role as Manchester United manager.
Solskjaer could be in trouble after a week that saw his United side lose to Astana in the Europa League before slipping up with a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday.
United are now ninth in the table, eight points adrift of the top four, with Solskjaer having overseen the club’s worst start after 14 games of a top-flight campaign since the 1988-89 season.
Nuno Espirito Santo follows next in the betting, with the Wolves manager at 11/1.
Nuno has enjoyed great success at Wolves, with his side riding high in the Premier League in sixth and through to the knockout stages of the Europa League, with such form catching the eye of Arsenal.
The Gunners are reportedly considering Santo to succeed Unai Emery and are said to have made contact with the Wolves manager.
West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini and Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl both follow behind at 12/1.
Pellegrini, who was 4/1 in the betting last week, has seen his odds lengthen following the Hammers’ 1-0 victory over Chelsea on Saturday.
That win lifted West Ham up to 13th, four points above the relegation zone, and should ease the pressure on the Chilean for the time being.
Hasenhuttl, meanwhile, has also seen his odds lengthen from last week’s 10/1 following Southampton’s vital 2-1 win over fellow relegation strugglers Watford on Saturday, which led to the Hornets’ dismissal of Quique Sanchez Flores.
The Saints, however, remain in the drop zone after the win, sitting in 18th position and two points adrift of safety.
