Garry Monk moves into odds on favouritism in the latest Sack Race betting

It is a rare Monday when Jose Mourinho isn't making all of the headlines but his one-match stadium ban ensured that he didn't have to witness Chelsea's latest defeat in the flesh and the focus of the British tabloid media has instead turn its focus on Garry Monk, who has rocketed to the head of the latest Sack Race Betting Market...

Garry Monk - 2/5

Monk has seen his Swansea side win just once since August and Saturday's 1-0 loss at Norwich was their fifth defeat in their last eight league games. The Welsh outfit are still five points clear of relegation but the board are getting restless and Monk's predecessor, Michael Laudrup, was shown the door following a return of six points from a possible 30 on offer.

Monk went from a relatively comfortable 12/1 to a 2/5 favourite to be the next manager to leave his post with William Hill in the past 24 hours, with reports suggesting that Huw Jenkins wants to bring in an experienced person as a Director of Football to help mentor Monk, who disagrees.

It would be remarkable to think that a manager who was being hailed as the next big thing about six months ago could leave a club he has been part of ever since signing as a player back in 2004.

Jose Mourinho - 3/1

Monk replaced Mourinho in the Sack Race but the Chelsea manager isn't out of the woods by any stretch as he is as short as 3/1 to be next to go with Paddy Power. His Chelsea team suffered a seventh Premier League defeat of the campaign as they lost 1-0 to Stoke on Saturday and they were relegated when they last lost seven of their first twelve league games of a season back in 1978/79.

Mourinho only signed a new four-year contract with the club in August but the reality is that his Chelsea team are languishing in 16th place in the league table and a vast improvement is needed quickly.

Steve McClaren - 11/1

Meanwhile, Steve McClaren has rarely been far from the head of the Sack Race market as his Newcastle team have spent much of the season in the relegation zone. They finally moved out of the bottom-three with a barely deserved 1-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday and it was their first away win in thirteen attempts in the league.

The Magpies are yet to convince though and McClaren is 11/1 to be next out of his job with Unibet.

Alex Neill - 20/1

Elsewhere, newly promoted Norwich halted a four-match losing run with a win, as well as a first clean sheet of the season, against Swansea at the weekend., The Canaries are 15th at this stage but one win from their last seven league matches (drawn two, lost four) is disappointing and manager Alex Neill is 20/1 to be next to lose his job with Paddy Power.

Eddie Howe - 25/1

Another newly promoted club is finding life in the top-flight tough as Bournemouth suffered a fourth successive loss against Newcastle. The Cherries surely wouldn't part ways with Eddie Howe, who is 25/1 to go with Bet Victor, although news that US-based investors are set to buy a stake in the club could make things interesting down on the South Coast.
