The Palace manager is now over whelming favourite to be sacked next after suffering 8th defeat of the season
It’s been a tough season for Alan Pardew. Saturday’s result against Swansea makes the achievement of reaching last season’s FA cup final fade into insignificance.
Palace found themselves 3-1 behind after 68 minutes and looked set to looked doomed before dragging themselves back into the game by taking a 4-3 into the last five minutes.
Sadly for Pards, Fernando Llorente made the most of lackluster Palace defending by grabbing two late goals leaving the Eagles in serious trouble. After an impressive 2015-16 campaign, the London club have been out of sorts so far this season and are only managing to avoid the drop zone on goal difference.
Saturday’s nine goal thriller wont have done anything positive for Bob Bradley’s health but picking up his first win as Swansea manager does see him vacate his spot as sack race favourite. He is now available at 3/1 just ahead of David Moyes and Mike Phelan both priced at 7/2. Phelan’s Hull managed a point against West Brom this weekend but still find themselves in the bottom three and facing challenging off field circumstances.
Previous favourite, Moyes endured another loss this weekend at the hand of Liverpool however recent victories against Hull and Bournemouth have helped secure his position in the short term.
After a solid away point at Old Trafford, under fire West Ham manager Slaven Billic is looking a lot more comfortable having moved out to 14/1.
Alan Pardew 4/7
Bob Bradley 3/1
David Moyes 7/2
Mike Phelan 7/2
Slaven Bilic 14/1
