Swansea City boss Bob Bradley favourite for the sack

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 21 November 2016, 09:18

Swansea City boss Bob Bradley may be an experienced manager with over 500 matches under his belt, but since arriving on these shores last month he's been forced to learn just how tough life in the Premier League dugout can be.

Over the weekend the under-fire American watched in despair as bookmakers thrust him into that incommodious position at the summit of the Premier League Sack Race after his winless Swans start was stretched to five games.

Bradley may have picked up a creditable point away to Everton on Saturday, but results elsewhere saw the struggling former USA head coach installed as the new 13/8 (Sky Bet) frontrunner for the chop.

A point at Goodison Park is usually nothing to be disappointed about. But, the fact that Swansea came so agonisingly close to victory means that the late draw feels more like a defeat.

Meanwhile, Sunderland's win at home to Hull not only eased the pressure on the former Sack Race table-topper David Moyes, but it also meant that Swansea went rock-bottom of the league ladder, with the Welsh side now without a win in 11 league games dating back to the opening day of the campaign.

However, while Moyes may have bagged his second successive win, he is far from safe at 2/1, whereas Hull boss Mike Phelan, who has lost seven of his last eight games, is priced at 4/1.

 

The alarm bells are also ringing around Selhurst Park after free-falling Crystal Palace slumped to their fifth defeat on the spin, with Alan Pardew subsequently cut to 5/1 in the betting.

Pardew's plight means that he heads into Saturday's crunch clash with Bradley's Swansea feeling the heat, with each of those two incumbents desperate for the a much needed three points, while a defeat could have severe consequences for the loser.
