Mourinho still favourite in Premier League sack race

Jose Mourinho is still favourite in the betting for the Premier League sack race.

The Manchester United boss has just five wins to his name in 12 games in all competitions this season.

An improved performance in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea was tempered by another touchline bust-up, and our traders make him 5/2 favourite to be booted first.

Elsewhere, Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has seen his odds slashed to just 11/4, having been 10/1 before a ball was kicked last weekend.

Southampton’s Mark Hughes and Newcastle United coach Rafa Benitez are next in the betting at 6/1 apiece.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Regardless of Saturday’s result, our traders still clearly think Mourinho is the most likely man to win the Sack Race.”
