Sack race odds: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cut from 40/1 to 14/1 to be next Premier League manager to leave post

Pressure is mounting on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a 1-0 home defeat against Aston Villa.

Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa has prompted bookmakers to dramatically cut odds from 40/1 to 14/1 for Solksjaer to be the next manager to leave.

The defeat has diminished United’s early season optimism and increased pressure on the manager. A strong transfer window led many to question whether the Red Devils could compete for the title but those hopes have been dashed after dropping three points at home at the hands of Dean Smith's Aston Villa.

Mikel Arteta remains the 5/2 favourite to be the next manager to leave after Arsenal’s disappointing start to the season. Sunday's North London derby could prove pivotal in deciding Arteta’s future with many fans calling for him to be sacked.

Steve Bruce is a close second favourite at a best price of 10/3 with Newcastle struggling to pick up points. The Magpies currently sit in the relegation zone having picked up just two points so far this season.

Next manager to leave odds:

  • Mikel Arteta 5/2
  • Steve Bruce 10/3
  • Xisco Munoz 7/1
  • Daniel Farke 15/2
  • Bruno Lage 15/2
  • Patrick Viera 14/1
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 14/1
