Jose Mourinho has kept his perfect managerial start running after a 3-2 win over West Ham United. This takes a lot of pressure of his and Tottenham’s shoulders, as the team has not won a single away game since January 20.
Clinching his first win on the new post, Mourinho is on the path to a 62-points campaign, which was only enough to secure the top 4 spot only twice in the Premier League history (2003/2004 & 2004/2005). Bookmaker Betfred
is giving Spurs the odds of 3.25 (9/4)
to make it to the league’s elites. Previously, the club was priced at 5.00 (4/1)
by many top online bookmakers.
Since Tottenham was not the only struggling Premier League team, and with the addition of Pochettino sacking, clubs like Arsenal should revise their plans. After not landing The Special One, Arsenal is left hanging at the eighth spot, and after a devastating draw against Southampton sees its top 4 odds at 5.50 (9/2)
(the lowest price across the industry).
All of this stirs up talks around Arsenal’s new manager. Considering the fact that Unai Emery is an odds-on favourite at William Hill
to be the next coach sacked and the availability of the Argentinian manager gives everybody something to think about.
Luckily or not, Pochettino is not favoured to get the job at Gunners. Oddsmakers of both bookies Ladbrokes
suggest that Tottenham’s ex is not very likely to link up with Arsenal based on the two opened markets.
