Following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, Unai Emery has returned to the head of the Premier League Sack Race but the biggest mover is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Emery had been favourite at the start of this week, before it emerged that Pochettino’s job was under threat and that ended with him being sacked by Tottenham on Tuesday.
The Arsenal boss is now favourite once again, but they real big move in the market has been for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
|2019 Premier League Sack Race||Favourite||Odds|
|Early July||Ole Gunnar Solskjaer||6/1|
|Mid July||Steve Bruce||4/1|
|Early August||Roy Hodgson||6/1|
|Mid August||Steve Bruce||3/1|
|End August||Javi Gracia||5/4|
|Early September||Ole Gunnar Solskjaer||5/1|
|Mid September||Mauricio Pochettino||4/1|

|Early October||Mauricio Pochettino||2/1|
|Mid October||Marco Silva||7/4|
|Ole Gunnar Solskjaer||7/4|
|End October||Ralph Hasenhuttl||4/5|
|Early November||Unai Emery||2/1|
|Mid November||Unai Emery||5/4|
At the start of this week Solskjaer was a long as 25/1 but now he is third favourite at 3/1 and why? Because of Pochettino and his sudden availability.
Pochettino was long time favourite to get the United job before Solskjaer, but now with the season not going especially well – Bookmakers and Punters firmly believe the pressure is on the Norwegian.
OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Once again the Bookmakers got wise on the Premier League Sack Race, they have not yet been caught out. Firstly Javi Gracia and now Mauricio Pochettino.
“And now the question is who will be next? Emery is again favourite at 5/4 just ahead of Southampton’s Ralph Hassenhuttl at 2/1.
“But the big money in the light of Pochetttino’s sacking has come on Solskjaer who surely must be looking over his shoulder now.
“Another big move has been Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers, whose name has been linked to Arsenal in recent weeks.”
