Odds slashed on Dean Smith being the next Premier League manager to leave

Aston Villa boss is now 6/4 to go

Our traders have slashed the odds of Aston Villa boss Dean Smith being the next Premier League manager to leave, following a flurry of bets.

Smith is now just 6/4 to go, level with no other manager leaving before the end of the campaign. Eddie Howe is next in the betting, though the Bournemouth chief is back at 8/1.

A run of five consecutive defeats in all competitions has piled the pressure on Smith. Villa are 19th in the table, two points off safety with 10 games to go.

“We have seen a flurry of bets this afternoon on Dean Smith being the next manager to leave their post in the Premier League. Aston Villa are on a poor run of form and many punters feel they will make a change to give themselves the best chance of staying up this season,” said Coral’s John Hill.

The Villans host Chelsea on Saturday evening. We have them at 19/5 to pick up a crucial win.
