Nuno Espirito Santo has shortened to 11/8 to be the Third Premier League Manager to Leave Their Club after Tottenham produced a poor display in losing 0-3 at home to Manchester United.
But surprisingly, Santo isn’t the favourite in the market with his opposite number on Saturday night, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, remaining the man most fancied to lose his job next at 11/10.
Spurs struggles continue
Tottenham, who are the joint third lowest scorers in the Premier League, failed to register a single shot on target against a United side that had been humiliated themselves just a week ago when losing 0-5 at home to Liverpool.
The defeat – Tottenham’s third reversal in four games without scoring a goal – was met with a chorus of boos at full-time from the bewildered home faithful, which was a clear indication to Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that they want a change.
Santo was also widely booed just before the hour mark when he replaced Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn, while sections of the crowd could also be heard showing their disgruntlement towards out-of-form striker Harry Kane who once again had a very poor game.
Santo, who clearly wasn’t Tottenham’s first choice manager after the sacking of Jose Mourinho, is under huge pressure to save his job and surely only a win away at Everton next weekend will prevent him from being sacked during the upcoming international break.
Conte backed to take over… at Spurs and United
Out of work manager Antonio Conte was a big mover in the Next Permanent Tottenham Manager market overnight, shortening from 14/1 to his current odds of 15/2.
Overnight you’ve been backing Antonio Conte to be the next Spurs boss.

We’ve been here before with Conte of course, the former Chelsea boss was much fancied to take over at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and traded at long odds-on on the Exchange before talks broke down during the summer.
However, if Conte is to become a manager in the Premier League once more then he is more likely to take over the reigns at Old Trafford with the Italian being available to back at just 8/15 in the Next Permanent Manchester United Manager market.
