The Sun says the clubâ€™s mega-rich Arab owners are already talking about replacing the Welshman before the January transfer window.
They are also aware that star players like Robinho are unhappy.
The ÂŁ32.5m striker, Elano and Jo are said to dislike Hughesâ€™ management style and would be happy to see him go.
A source close to the owners said last night: â€śHughes has not got long. Even if he had beaten Spurs his job was in jeopardy â€” now losing has taken him to the edge.â€ť
