Jose Mourinho overtakes Claude Puel in the sack race

 A little over a week ago, the Mirror reported that Claude Puel only had 2matches to save his job at Leicester.

That report came out after Leicester lost their opening EPL fixture at Old Trafford.

Yet week two of the new season saw mirror results for Man United and the Foxes.

Jose Mourinho’s men lost 3-2 at Brighton as the cracks in the Man United squad were opened up.

As for Leicester, they beat Wolves 2-0 on Saturday for their first win of the year.

The bookies have reacted to the latest EPL results by adjusting their odds in the sack race.

Jose Mourinho is the new favourite with Ladbrokes in the EPL sack race.

The Man United boss suffered embarrassment on Sunday against the Seagulls, and that’s forced bookies to slash odds to 7/2 on the Portuguese manager being the first top-flight manager to leave his post this season.

It’s now just an 8/11 shot (from 6/5 last week) that Mourinho is sacked or leaves his current job before Christmas.
