Next Man Utd manager odds: Clear favourite emerges with Erik ten Hag facing the sack after Crystal Palace loss

The latest odds on who could potentially replace Erik ten Hag at Manchester United have been revealed.

On Monday night, the pressure intensified on Ten Hag after United’s dismal 4-0 Premier League defeat by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The defeat leaves the Red Devils seventh in the table, 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa and a massive 29 points off leaders Arsenal.

After the final whistle, United fans took to social media to direct their anger at Ten Hag on the back of yet another disappointing display.

With United facing an uphill battle to qualify for Europe, the pressure will be firmly on the Dutchman as he faces an uncertain future.

According to the latest odds, former Paris Saint Germain and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is the favourite to take over if United decide to part ways with Ten Hag.

The 50-year-old German, who is set to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks and is now priced at 2/1 to become the Red Devils’ new manager.

After Tuchel, England manager Gareth Southgate is second favourite at 3/1, with ex-Chelsea and Brighton boss Graham Potter third at 5/1.
