Leicester boss Rodgers sudden bookies' favourite for sack

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is suddenly the new bookies' favourite for the sack among Premier League managers.

The Foxes are enduring a below-par season, by their standards, and things got worse on Sunday when they bowed out of the FA Cup to lower league opposition.

Rodgers' saw his FA Cup holders thumped 4-1 at Championship outfit Nottingham Forest after a poor display that saw them 3-0 down after just 32 minutes.

You can get odds on him, via multiple outlets, as a 9/2 favourite to be the next top-flight dismissal. No manager to leave before the end of the season comes in second, with Sean Dyche (Burnley), Eddie Howe (Newcastle) and Roy Hodgson (Watford) rounding out the top five.


BOOKIES' FAVOURITES IN THE SACK RACE

Brendan Rodgers - 9/2

No manager - 5/1

Sean Dyche - 6/1

Eddie Howe - 12/1

Roy Hodgson - 12/1
