Arsene Wenger's Odds Slashed Following European Defeat

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 16 February 2012, 16:45

Arsene Wenger has had his odds cut from 50/1 to just 12/1 in the Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked betting market. On Wednesday Arsenal endured a night of torture at the San Siro as they were thumped 4-0 by a classy AC Milan side, with the comprehensive result all but extinguishes Arsenal's hopes of reaching the last eight of the Champions League. Wenger described Arsenal's heaviest ever European defeat as ‘shocking' as he blasted his side's poor display. Arsenal supporters will now be fearing a repeat of last season when The Gunners endured a horror two weeks where they lost the Carling Cup final, were defeated by Barcelona in Europe and dumped out of the FA Cup by rivals Manchester United.

For arguably the first time in his career Wenger has come under heavy pressure this season. A poor start to the current campaign means Arsenal are currently battling it out with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle for the prized fourth spot. To miss out on qualification for the Champions League would be devastating for a club who haven't finished outside the top four under Wenger. The Gunners have key clashes against Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle coming up in the next few weeks and if they fail to get anything from these matches Wenger's future at the club will once again start to dominate the headlines.

On Saturday evening Arsenal will be looking to bounce back and progress through to the quarter finals of the FA Cup when they travel to the Stadium of Light to play Sunderland. The match is a repeat of last weekend's Premier League fixture where Arsenal came from behind to win 2-1. Paddy Power have installed Arsenal as the 7/5 favourites to win on Saturday, while Sunderland can be backed at 19/10, with a draw available at 23/10. It has been well publicised that the FA Cup was the last trophy which Arsenal won back in 2005 and they are currently priced at 11/2 to win the famous trophy this season.
