Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now FAVOURITE to be sacked next – odds slashed to EVENS

That exit door is getting more and more ajar.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now the bookies’ favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked after Man United’s desperate 2-0 home defeat to Burnley.

That followed a damaging 2-0 loss at biggest rivals Liverpool, who are now 30 points clear of them with two games in hand.

Solskjaer has been given the dreaded vote of confidence

And Betway have slashed odds on Solskjaer being the next to get the boot, down to EVENS for the first time.

He usurps previous favourite Eddie Howe (6/4), with the Bournemouth boss clinching a crucial 3-1 win over relegation rivals Brighton in midweek.

United remain only six points off the top four but they have lost three of their last five and that Burnley defeat was their eighth in 24 league games already this season.

How many more defeats will it take?

While still being in fifth, they are actually only four points off Newcastle in 14th and 11 above 19th-placed Watford.

Solskjaer has been given the dreaded vote of confidence by the United board, who have always maintained they would stand by their man.

But with Mauricio Pochettino unemployed and supposedly waiting in the wings, how much longer will they wait and more importantly… how much worse could it get?
