The fickle world of football management is rearing its head again and now Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder is being pulled into focus.

That’s because the Blades manager has been cut into 3/1 in Next Premier League Manager To Go betting* (betting odds taken from 888sport at 23:09 GMT on Wednesday, November 11th 2020).

Lows hit Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United hard

Last season on their return to the top flight, Sheffield United were earning plaudits all over the places.

They were a great side to watch at Bramall Lane, never afraid to take on a challenge and play some bold football.

Few would have had them pegged for a top ten finish last season, but that is what they managed to get, despite their form falling away at the end of the campaign.

At the end of the previous campaign, Sheffield United found themselves on a three-match losing streak in the top flight.

That was really the first sign of concern for them as the season ended fairly tamely for Chris Wilder’s men.

Jump forward to the new Premier League season and things have not gotten any better.

Chris Wilder’s Blades at the bottom

Following a 4-1 hammering at Stamford Bridge just before this week’s international break, Sheffield United found themselves bottom of the table.

It has been only one point that the Blades have earned this season and that was in a disappointing 1-1 home draw against the newly-promoted Fulham.

So there is huge pressure on Chris Wilder and United now, despite having scored in four of their last five games.

But putting things into context, the latest run of matches that they have had, have been really tough.

In their last five games, they have visited Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, along with having hosted Man City.

To their credit, it was only a one-goal margin defeat for United against Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City.

Our betting prediction:
Chris Wilder

Light at the end of the tunnel on return?

The fixture list after the international break looks far more palatable for Sheffield United until the end of the year.

So there is a chance of points coming up for them.

This looks to be the period which will make or break Wilder’s tenure at Bramall Lane.

At the moment for football betting, Sheffield United are 11/8 to be relegated from the top flight this season* (betting odds taken from 888sport at 23:09 GMT on Wednesday, November 11th 2020).

Only Fulham, West Brom and Burnley are at shorter prices than that to get the drop.

Bilic to go first?

But despite the demise of the Blades and their current form, Chris Wilder is not the outright favourite in the current Next Premier League Manager To Go market.

That is Slaven Bilic who is having equally as the thought of a time with the newly promoted West Brom.

The Baggies have taken a D3 L5 record so far and have been struggling badly in front of goal.

West Brom have scored one goal only in their last five top-flight games.

So there is obvious pressure there on Bilic’s stay at the Hawthorns.

Behind him is Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is having a real up and down season.

Solskjaer is at 5/2 in the market* (betting odds taken from 888sport at 23:09 GMT on Wednesday, November 11th 2020).

United are down in the bottom half of the table at the moment with a W3 D1 L3 record having been recorded.

The Red Devils are without a win at home this season in the Premier League.

You wonder the longer that goes on, how much patience will the board have OGS, especially with Mauricio Pochettino still out of work and potentially waiting in the wings.
