Our traders have slashed the odds on Antonio Conte being the next Premier League manager to leave his post, following Tuesday night’s Champions League thrashing away at Roma.
Having been a 20/1 shot in the Sack Race prior to kick-off, the Italian boss has since seen his odds tumble to just 7/1.
That makes Conte him third-favourite in the market, behind Everton-linked Sean Dyche (1/2) and West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic (5/2) respectively.
And the bookies have also trimmed odds of Conte leaving at any stage this season to just 7/4, while 16/1 says he’s in charge of the Blues for just one more game – against Man United this weekend.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Something isn’t quite working at Chelsea this year and the latest odds are strongly suggesting Conte will pay the price in the near future.”
