Sticky starts puts focus on Erik ten Hag

After some dismal displays last season, Manchester United fans will have been looking forward to a bright new start this term.

Over the summer former Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag was installed as the new boss. He is the one charged with turning around the fortunes of the fallen giant.

But some troubles during the summer over transfer targets dampened the expectations a little.

The latest Manchester United transfer rumours have them linked with former Stoke striker Marco Arnautovic.

Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sane has also cropped up in latest transfer news.

With home advantage on the opening weekend of the new EPL season, Manchester United had been odds-on favourites to win their match.

Brighton didn’t read the script, however. Graham Potter’s team, who were excellent in every department, pulled out a 2-1 win thanks to a first-half double from Pascal Gross.

The Red Devils couldn’t turn the game around, even when Cristiano Ronaldo made an appearance in the second half of the match.

Erik ten Hag was trimmed from around 33/1 down to 20/1 to be the Next Premier League manager to go, following the result* (odds recorded at 16:42 GMT on August 8th, 2022 at Betfair).

Early stress tests for Everton

Everton manager Frank Lampard is still the favourite in the Premier League sack race at 4/1* (odds recorded at 16:42 GMT on August 8th, 2022 at Betfair).

The Toffees opened with a defeat at home against Chelsea on the weekend.

The visiting Blues looked average at best but still did enough to walk away from Goodison Park with a 1-0 victory.

After narrowly escaping relegation last term, Lampard has a huge job ahead of him.

Another substantial injury to the main striker Dominic Calvert Lewin hasn’t helped matters.

That’s compounding their troubles up front having sold Richarlison in the summer to Tottenham.

Hasenhuttl feels more heat

Southampton’s form over the second half of last season’s Premier League was dreadful. The Saints lost 9 of their final 12 league matches.

This current 2022/23 Premier League campaign didn’t get off on a good note either.

The Saints were turned over 4-1 by Tottenham after opening the scoring in the match. Southampton fans were already calling for Hasenhuttl to go towards the end of last season.

If things don’t pick up quickly, the Saints board may be one of the first to react this season.

Hasenhuttl is currently 9/2 in the Next Premier League Manager To Go betting market* (odds recorded at 16:42 GMT on August 8th, 2022 at Betfair).

Others in the mix

Leeds picked up an opening win at Elland Road on the weekend, thanks to an own-goal by Wolves. Still, Leeds boss Jesse Marsch is at 6/1 in the EPL Sack Race odds, while Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers is not too far beyond that at 15/2* (odds recorded at 16:42 GMT on August 8th, 2022 at Betfair).

Leicester threw away a 2-0 home lead against Brentford to draw on the weekend.

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard is at 11/1* (odds recorded at 16:42 GMT on August 8th, 2022 at Betfair). The Villains slipped to a 2-0 loss on the road against the newly promoted Bournemouth in their opener.

With few wins for Villa at the end of last season, Gerrard, who has spent a lot in the transfer market in the last year, will be keen to see more positive results.
