Sunderland boss now favourite for the chop after West Brom defeat

| 22.01.2017

David Moyes has already more-than doubled the amount of defeats he suffered in his last season in charge at Everton – and he’s just 22 Premier League games into life as Sunderland boss.

That leaves the Black Cats rooted to the bottom of the table, some three points off safety.

Will they be able to turn things around yet again? That remains to be seen.

But it’s looking more and more likely that David Moyes won’t be around to see that potentially happen come May, as he’s now the new 7/4 favourite to face the chop next in the top-flight.

The north-east outfit have failed to win a match in any competition since mid-December, picking up just one point from a possible 15 in the Premier League in the process, while also being knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup by Burnley.

But it’s not just results that Sunderland fans are becoming frustrated with, it’s Moyes’ failure to do anything about their current situation.

Despite the January transfer window opening 21 days ago, the former Manchester United boss is yet to add anyone to his ranks, and has said he’ll struggle to bring players in who could help the team out.

Hardly the confidence boost the fans needed heading into a run of fixtures against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Manchester City…

Meanwhile, money continues to come in for Watford boss Walter Mazzarri (11/4) to be given his marching orders next.

And had it not been for Sunderland’s dreadful run of late, the Hornets boss would be the clear favourite in this market.

But we’re also keeping a close eye on developments at Selhurst Park.

Though he was only appointed as manager on December 23, Big Sam is yet to win any of his five Premier League games in charge of the Eagles.

That poor run of form has seen his side slide into the relegation zone, and his odds of being sent packing next have fallen to 20/1 as a result.

Failure to put this winless run to an end in the next few games could put the 62-year-old in dangerous territory in this market.
