O'Neill strong favourite in Premier League sack race
Martin O’Neill is 6/4 with Coral to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post, following Sunderland's 2-1 defeat, away to Norwich City on Sunday.
The result means Martin O’Neill’s side have now won, only one of their last 10 games in all competitions. It’s 6/5 for O’Neill to leave Sunderland before the opening day of the 2013/14 season.
“If results don’t start going Sunderland’s way very soon, Martin O’Neill could easily find himself looking for a new job, come the start of 2013,” Coral's Tim Reynolds told Football Betting News.
“The Black Cats have to play Chelsea, Man United, Man City and Spurs before the turn of the year, so life isn’t getting any easier for O’Neill,” added Reynolds.
Sunderland’s latest defeat means the Black Cats are currently one point above the relegation zone. It’s 7/2 for Sunderland to be relegated this season and 1/6 is quoted for O’Neill’s side to avoid the drop.
