The Blues boss has overtaken Steve Bruce as market leader
- Frank Lampard has now overtaken Steve Bruce as the favourite to be sacked first.
- Sheffield boss Chris Wilder has drifted now out from 4/7 to 5/1.
The Chelsea boss is now as short as 8/15
Frank Lampard is the new clear favourite in the sack race, following Chelsea’s lacklustre 2-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City.
On the 20th December, Lampard was available at a whopping 25/1 to be the next manager to leave the Premier League.
Following a stuttering run of form, that price is now as short as 8/15 with some bookies, with five different firms offering odds-on prices.
Only one bookie (SBK) is offering odds-against, with 17/16 the standout price on the oddschecker grids.
The move means Lampard has overtaken the previous favourite Steve Bruce, who’s price tumbled the previous day. Bruce has now lengthened out to 5/2 best price.
Chris Wilder seems to have been handed a lifeline at Sheffield United, and continues to drift in the market, now out to 5/1.
There’s then a big drop to the next group of managers, with Roy Hodgson (16/1), Graham Potter (16/1) and Sean Dyche (25/1) following next.
Once a darling of this market, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s odds now see him sit with esteemed company. Despite being odds on 8/13 earlier in the season, it’s now 66/1 that Ole is shown the door at Old Trafford.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "He was given an almighty war chest at the start of the season, and it's clear Frank Lampard is not delivering.
"Chelsea's poor run of results has seen them slip further and further down the table, and despite his standing as a club legend, Roman Abramovich's patience will be running thin."
