Another Premier League Manager Looks Set For The Sack
Mark Hughes is walking a tightrope at Southampton and is 4/9 with William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job and is 5/2 to have left his job by the time the Saints kick off their match against Leicester midweek.
Southampton travel to Craven Cottage for Claudio Ranieri's first game in charge of Fulham since taking over from Slavisa Jokanovic nine days ago.
Hughes' side haven't won a league game since they beat Crystal Palace on September 1st (D4, L4), leaving the Saints boss under immense pressure.
"There is a suggestion that Mark Hughes will be inched even further towards the Southampton exit should they lose this weekend," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Palace's Roy Hodgson (6/1) and Jose Mourinho (4/1 with Sky Bet) follow in the sack race.
Meanwhile, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all unbeaten in the Premier League and it is odds on at 4/6 that they remain so come the end of the weekend. It is 50/1 that none of those sides have tasted defeat come the end of 2018.
