Hull City Sack Mike Phelan

Hull City have sacked Mike Phelan who becomes the third Premier League boss to lose his job in the last 13 days, while he's the fourth top-flight managerial casualty of the season.

Phelan was originally placed in caretaker charge of the Tigers following the shock departure of Steve Bruce back in July, just three weeks before the start of the season.

The former Man Utd assistant enjoyed a superb start, winning his opening three games in all competitions, which was followed by only one victory in six, before he was handed the job on a permanent basis in mid-October.

However, Hull have since lost nine of their 13 Premier League games, while they're without a top-flight win in nine matches, stretching back two months.

Monday's 3-1 defeat to West Brom left the struggling club rooted to the bottom of the table, six points adrift of safety with 18 matches remaining.

The former Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett, who was harshly sacked last month, has emerged as the early favourite to replace Phelan, while the likes of Alan Pardew, Roy Hodgson, Ryan Giggs, and Chris Coleman also feature.
