Premier League relegation odds: Manchester United backed for relegation

It' been a frustrating few months for Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjær. The Norwegian has seen the majority of his rivals considerably strengthen their squads during the summer transfer window, whilst he's been left chasing shadows. The mood in Manchester was made even worst when Crystal Palace upset the odds and won 1-3 at Old Trafford over the weekend. 

United have been linked to some of the best players in the world over the last month or so, which led many to believe they could mount a decent title challenge this season. Despite signing Donny van de Beek from Ajax, it looks like the Red Devils will miss out on the rest of their shortlist. 

With no new players on the horizon and a lacklustre start to the season, online bettors have rushed to back Manchester United for relegation. Despite their relegation odds being +100000, 9.7% of bets in the relegation market since Saturday morning have been on Manchester United. This makes them the fourth most wagered club in the market, behind Fulham, West Brom and West Ham.

It's still very unlikely Manchester United will be relegated from the Premier League, especially given how poor Fulham and West Brom look this season. However, a couple more bad results will only increase the number of people looking to place a wager on United dropping out of the division. Bad results will also increase the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who is currently the 5th favorite (+1000) in the next manager to leave his post-market.
