Lambert Slashed Into Odds-On To Be Next Manager To Go

There has been significant interest in Paul Lambert to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job after Aston Villa’s defeat on Tuesday night. He is 5/6 joint favourite (from 4/1) with Nigel Pearson at William Hill with Steve Bruce the 14/1 third favourite.

“Lambert’s Villa have been woeful this season and losing to a relegation rival has seen his odds tumble to be the next out,” said William hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Premier League manager to leave: 5/6 Nigel Pearson; 5/6 Paul Lambert; 14/1 Steve Bruce; 33/1 BAR

11/1 No Premier League manager to go before the end of the Premier League season
