Odds Suggest Uncertainty About Solskjaer’s Future At Manchester United: Time Up For The Norwegian?

It’s almost a month since the new Premier League season kicked off and the standings are yet to shape up properly after four gameweeks of football. Liverpool and Manchester City are once again exhibiting a duopoly in the title battle, but the rest of the ‘big six’ have struggled so far to secure results against inferior counterparts.

Teams that have surprised last season are fighting deep down the league table and a few of the managers are already being touted to be dismissed from their duties before Christmas. Fans are placing their bets on various websites and Maxfreebets.co.uk have the Ladbrokes get 10 get 30 offer for new customers to claim.

Javi Gracia earned a new contract after guiding Watford to finish 11th in the league. The Hornets also secured a place in the Emirates FA Cup final (even though they were beaten 6-0 by a ruthless Manchester City side) but have only managed a point so far from 4 outings after three successive defeats to start off the new campaign.

They have not won a league game yet and the board, having sacked the likes of Quique Sanchez Flores, Walter Mazzarri and Marco Silva since being promoted to the top tier back in 2015, might show Gracia the exit door prior to the 25th of December.

While the Spaniard is at 6/4 to leave the club, former Manchester United great Ole Gunnar Solskjær is not far behind (at 5/2) either. The Red Devils had astounding inception as they thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford, but are yet to win a game since and had to swallow a shambolic home defeat to Crystal Palace a couple of weeks later. They lack enough depth as well as the experience in the attacking third and the decision of letting Alexis Sanchez depart on loan to Inter Milan has been lambasted by BBC pundit Chris Sutton for obvious reasons.

Palace, on the other hand, are fourth in the standings with successive wins, however, the future of Roy Hodgson looks uncertain at 3 behind the Norwegian. Frank Lampard, meanwhile, is tipped to keep hold of his job despite a difficult start as the Chelsea boss and is not even among the top ten names whose future is in doubt before the winter window opens.
