Slaven Bilic returns to the summit of the Sack Race

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 13 October 2016, 09:22

Order has returned to the Premier League Sack Race after West Ham boss Slaven Bilic once again took his place at the summit, as the 2/1 favourite, replacing the brief former frontrunner Sean Dyche who moves back out to 7/1.

Dyche was blasted to the apex of the market on Tuesday after he, without warning, emerged as a major contender for the Aston Villa job, in the betting at least after his odds were cut from 10/1 to just 6/4.

Dyche was subsequently cut down to 9/4 in the Sack Race, but this all proved to be a false dawn as Steve Bruce was then appointed Villa boss yesterday (Thursday), meaning Burnley boss Dyche has drifted back out to 7/1 in the next Premier League manager to leave market.

At the start of the international break Swansea became the first Premier League side this season to dispense of their manager after sending Francesco Guidolin to the job centre, bringing in Bob Bradley as his replacement.

The likes of Bilic, Moyes and Hughes have all clinged onto their respective jobs during the break, but this may not be the case come the next round of international fixtures in November.

Bilic is suffering following a wretched opening period with West Ham, who are 18th in the table with just four points after seven games. The Hammers haven't tasted victory since a narrow win over Bournemouth in their second match, meaning the club's next three games - Crystal Palace, Sunderland, and Everton - are simply huge.

Bilic may be struggling at the summit of the Sack Race, but at least he's won a game, which is more than can be said for Moyes and Hughes.

Moyes (11/4 Ladbrokes) has endured a shocking start to life at Sunderland, picking up just two points from seven matches, leaving the Black Cats rock-bottom of the league.

However, could the Scot grab that first elusive victory on Saturday when he locks horns with...fellow winless gaffer Hughes (9/1 betway), whose Stoke side are only a point better off in 19th.

If one of these gaffers is on the losing side this weekend then their future will be very, very bleak.
