Wenger heads sacking list

Last Updated: Tue, 21 Mar 2017 16:39

Arsene Wenger is favourite to be the next Premier League manager to get the sack, despite telling friends he wishes to stay at Arsenal.

The Gunners find themselves on their worst run of form during the Frenchman's 21-year tenure following a 3-1 loss to West Brom on Saturday.

The defeat at the Hawthorns marked a fourth loss in five Premier League matches as Arsenal slipped to sixth, six points adrift of the top four. Fans took to the skies with banners to voice their differing opinions on the manager, whose contract is up at the end of the season, as another timid display saw the Gunners fall to their third consecutive away defeat.

Wenger's side have won just two of their last six fixtures - FA Cup victories over non-league clubs Lincoln City and Sutton United - and their 10-2 aggregate humbling against Bayern Munich marks the largest Champions League defeat to date.

After claims from the Arsenal board that a decision on his future will be made mutually, Wenger appears willing to continue and says he will announce a decision "very soon" as to whether he will carry on.

The Frenchman remains the bookies' favourite for the sack ahead of struggling Sunderland manager David Moyes, whose side have won just one of their last ten matches and find themselves seven points from safety.

The Black Cats look increasingly likely to make the drop and their 0-0 stalemate at home to Burnley marks their fourth consecutive game without a goal.

Punters eyeing the latest Premier League odds for the next manager to be sacked will note a recent poor run of form for Watford, in which they have won just two of their last 13 Premier League matches, has left Walter Mazzarri’s men looking over their shoulders, just seven points clear of the drop zone.

Mazzarri’s side host Sunderland and West Brom in their next two Premier League fixtures and the Italian could be under increasing pressure should the Hornet’s poor form continue.
