West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini is favourite for the Premier League Sack Race for the first time since he took charge at the club.
The former Real Madrid coach took charge at West Ham in 2018 and has overseen significant spending during his tenure, but results – especially this season – have not been good and they currently sit just one point above the drop-zone.
The pressure is now on and Bookmakers have cut his odds into 2/7, which is nearly 80% probability.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “With the recent departures of of Pochettino, Emery, Flores and Silva – we are firmly in the middle of sacking season, and Pellegrini is under real pressure.
“He has never been favourite before but now at 2/7 he looks firmly on course for the the axe. Others who have been big movers are Daniel Farke and Eddie Howe – with both Norwich and Bournemouth in poor form – but at 8/1 they are still some way off Pellegrini.
