The Red Devils boss has been elevated into pole position after the first manager was dismissed during the international break

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is Sportsbet's new favourite for the Premier League sack race after Watford boss Javi Gracia was fired last week.

After failing to lead the Red Devils to victory in their past three league matches, the Norweigan coach is 5.00 to be the next manager to leave their post ahead of Newcastle United's Steve Bruce at 8.00 and Aston Villa's Dean Smith at 9.50.

By comparison, Premier League title challengers Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are both long odds at 101.00.

Sportsbet have introduced three new Premier League markets for punters to select who will make the team of the year by position.

Ederson is a 1.72 favourite to be selected as the goalkeeper, ahead of Liverpool's Alisson (4.50) and his Manchester City teammate Kevin De Bruyne (1.73) is shortest to be one of the midfielders in the team.

Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling (2.00) are the lowest-priced attackers, while Sergio Aguero appears to be excellent value at 3.50.

Closer to home, Australia have shifted into 1.40 odds of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup after their 3-0 thrashing of Kuwait.

If you feel the green and gold are going to miss the Qatar tournament, you can get that option at 2.80.
