Premier League Sack Race Odds: Lampard on the brink ahead of Man City test

Frank Lampard is the 1/2 favourite in the Premier League sack race market ahead of Everton's weekend trip to Manchester City.

Lampard's Everton sit precariously in 17th place, just one point ahead of both Nottingham Forest and Wolves, who snatched a late winner against them on Boxing Day.

Unfortunately for the 44-year-old, a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in late October has proved a false dawn for the Toffees. In four Premier League matches since, they have scored just once and taken a single point from a goalless draw at Fulham.

Lampard had gone out to as far as 16/1 in the sack race odds market having beaten Palace and was 3/1 best price going into the Premier League's World Cup break.

He was still available at 8/11 ahead of the Boxing Day defeat to Wolves but is now a best price 1/2 (worst 1/3). West Ham’s David Moyes, meanwhile, is the second favourite at 6/1 having overseen four defeats in a row for the Hammers - now 16th in the table.

Brendan Rodgers, a pretty permanent fixture at the top of the next manager to leave market this season, has shortened from 10/1 into 6/1 third favourite after Leicester's Boxing Day drubbing by Champions League chasing Newcastle.

Rounding out the top five are Nottingham Forest's Steve Cooper (14/1) - despite the Welshman signing an extension to his deal at the City Ground in October - and Graham Potter (20/1), whose Chelsea side ended a run of three consecutive defeats against Bournemouth.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, is considered the least likely to be next out the door at a huge best price of 250/1 (worst price 66/1). His City side moved back to five points behind Arsenal at the top of the table after beating Leeds 3-1 at Elland Road.
