Crystal Palace suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Sheffield United on the weekend in Premier League action. That left the Eagles sitting down in 14th place in the top-flight table, six points clear of the drop and six points out of the top six.

But the result, in which keeper Vicente Guaita produced a howler to gift the visiting Blades the win, not only leaves the Eagles struggling for form, but Palace boss Roy Hodgson has been slashed into the position of being the new favourite in the Next Premier League Manager To Go market.

Hodgson Under Pressure

Hodgson who had been out at 33/1 just last month, is now in at 2/1 with Ladbrokes to get the chop. It has been back to back home losses for Palace in the league. They failed to score in either of those defeats. The result on the weekend leaves Palace winless in six. It is just one win secured in their last ten Premier League games.

They are also the lowest-scoring side in the top flight. But they have only suffered three losses in their last dozen games (W2 D6). So the bigger picture isn’t that bad for them. They have a crucial run of games coming up in which points look offer points. It’s Everton, Newcastle, Brighton, Watford and Bournemouth that the Eagles face in their next five games.

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith, who saw his side lose at Bournemouth on the weekend, is still close to the head of the market. Smith though has taken Villa to the EFL Cup final and their home form in the top flight hasn’t been bad, with two wins in their last three at Villa Park. Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe will be feeling a little less stressed after the Cherries have secured back to back wins to haul themselves out of the drop zone.
