Luis Enrique most backed to take over at Chelsea, Hiddink joint-favourite

Antonio Conte's time at Chelsea looks like it could be up.

Guus Hiddink (3/1) has been instilled as joint-favourite to take over from under fire Antonio Conte, with the Chelsea boss currently 1/6 next boss to get the boot.

Having come in to steady the ship in the 2015-16 season, it’s a familiar face being touted with a move back to Stamford Bridge.

But, the Dutchman is not proving the most popular with punters, with ex-Barcelona manger Luis Enrique (3/1) the most popular bet.

68% of all bets have been placed on Enrique taking over the turbulent South London team, following the 4-1 defeat to Watford.

It’s the third back-to-back defeat for the Blues in 23 years, and punters are piling on him to be next to be sacked, with 91% of all bets backing Conte’s exit.

Also in the hunt for the hot seat are Carlo Ancelotti (7/2), Diego Simeone (6/1), Thomas Tuchel (6/1) and Massimiliano Allergri (12/1) to take over at the Blues.

Spokesperson George Elek said: If Guus Hiddink doesn't have "Chelsea firefighter" on his CV already, he could well do soon as a third interim stint in the Stamford Bridge hot seat beckons.

“Given the lack of options mid-season, it would make sense for Chelsea to get a short-term manager in ahead of the summer.”
