Pellegrini Out: 2/7 To Leave In Summer – Ancelotti In!

After a damaging defeat against Crystal Palace, Manchester City are 25/1 to win the Premier League title with William Hill, leaving Chelsea as the clear 1/33 favourites. Manchester City are now more likely to finish in third this season offered at 5/4 with Arsenal the new second favourites for the title at 20/1. 

The defeat has diminished City’s chances of winning the Premier League and could accelerate Manuel Pellegrini out of the door at the Etihad. He is 2/7 to no longer be City’s manager come the first day of next season. 

Carlo Ancelotti is 5/4 favourite to be Manchester City’s next permanent manager with Diego Simeone the 4/1 second favourite.
