The West London side travelled to Huddersfield last night in a bottom-of-the-table clash and lost the game 1-0.

The result means that the Yorkshire side, who were yet to win a league game this season, jumped above Fulham into second bottom.

It is the Cottagers worst ever start to a Premier League campaign and Jokanovic is now the clear front-runner to be the next top division manager to get the boot.

The Serbian was 11/8 to be sacked before the defeat, however, he is now 8/11 to be removed from his post and Oddschecker are reporting that 55% of bets in the last 24 hours have been placed on him.

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes is 7/2 favourite to take over from Jokanovic at Craven Cottage.

Moyes' most recent job at West Ham lasted just six months and the Scotsman recorded nine wins and 10 draws after 31 games at the helm, taking them from the relegation zone to 13th.

Sam Allardyce, who is no stranger to a relegation battle, is 6/1 to return to Premier League management.

Claudio Ranieri and Chris Coleman are both 7/1 for the position. Ranieri guided Leicester City to Premier League glory in 2016, however, he was sacked the following year.

Fulham would be the Italians 18th club since he began his managerial career in 1986. The 67-year-old has had spells at West London rivals Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus.

While Coleman, who is currently in charge of Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune, started his managerial career at Fulham in 2003, where he spent four years.

Michael O'Neill is also in the running at 9/1, O'Neill led Northern Ireland to their first ever European Championship's in 2016 and they made it to the first knockout stage before being knocked out by Wales.

Fellow Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers is 10/1 for the post, the 45-year-old has been at Celtic since 2016 following stints at Swansea and Liverpool.
