Jose Mourinho remains heavy favourite to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job despite Manchester United’s thrilling win on Saturday evening.
The writing seemed to be on the wall for the Red Devils when they went 2-0 down at home to Newcastle United after just 10 minutes, but a late fightback meant the hosts took all three points.
Mourinho was just 1/5 (1.20) with William Hill to be the first Premier League manager to leave their job at half-time in that game and although United went on to claim victory, the Portuguese is still 4/7 (1.57).
However, the 20-time champions still sit in eighth place – seven points adrift of top – after their first win in five games and change seems set to come at some point.
William Hill’s Joe Crilly said: “Mourinho was on the ropes with his side trailing at half time, however their incredible fightback means that he may have a little life left in him yet.”
Mourinho is not the only manager under pressure, of course, and Neil Warnock has seen his odds cut to 6/1 (7.0) after Cardiff lost their fifth game in a row on Saturday.
