Bilic, Hughes & Moyes Sack Race Favourites

This Promotion Has Expired.

Swansea City have acted quickly to arrest their poor start to the season by replacing Francesco Guidolin with Bob Bradley. Guidolin was the first Premier League manager to vacate their post and his departure now leaves a series of other managers looking over their shoulders. Stoke, West Ham and Sunderland have all had bad starts - but will this mean a change of manager?

According to the latest sack race odds at Sky Bet, West Ham United's Slaven Bilic is the new favourite for the chop. Bilic, who had a successful campaign last time round with The Hammers, has endured a difficult start at The London Stadium. Injuries haven't been kind to West Ham either but they've looked poor.

Bilic - 2/1 At Sky Bet

West Ham's next opponents are Crystal Palace and Sunderland. Bilic will be hoping for a good return of points from these games otherwise he could be following Guidolin on to the dole queue. Sky Bet have Bilic at 2/1 favourite to be the next Premier League Manager to lose his job.

Surprisingly Stoke City, another team who enjoyed a decent campaign last season, have had a terrible start. This has put Mark Hughes' position under scrutiny and he's currently 7/2 to be the next manager to leave a Premier League club. Their next games are against Sunderland, Hull and Swansea - all fellow strugglers - so Hughes will be expecting good results.

Can Moyes Survive?

Sunderland could be the Kingmaker when it comes to the future of both Bilic and Hughes. At the same time Stoke and West Ham could inflict damage on David Moyes' fledgling career at The Stadium Of Light. Moyes is 5/1 to be the next Premier League departure but we think his job is fairly safe.

Sunderland are going to struggle whilst they have a revolving door on the Manager's office. They need to give Moyes time to solve the club's many issues. Unlike West Ham and Stoke, Sunderland expect a relegation battle so the manager knows what he's up against. A better 5/1 bet would be Tony Pulis at West Brom who's relationship with the board is not good. If The Baggies struggle over the next few games then that could be a good excuse for both parties to move on.
