Underfire Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho remains the first Premier League manager tipped to be sacked in the ongoing season.

He also failed to win silverware for the Old Trafford outfit in his second year, and this is also part of the reasons the highly rated manager may be shown the exit doors early this season.

After the first four round of matches, Man United are ranked in the middle of the table - in spite of the caliber of players the club parade.

Next on the list of the managers that could be sacked in the first half of the season is Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez.

Despite bringing them back to the EPL just one season after relegating, the former Real Madrid manager seems to have fallen out of favour with his employers.

Leicetser City boss Claude Puel, Neil Warnock and Mark Hughes complete the top five of the most-backed bosses to be sacked.

Meanwhile Pep Guardiola and Wolves' Nuno Espirito are yet to have a single penny staked on them in the sack race.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Favourite in the sack race and the subject of one in two bets - it's hard to see Jose lasting much longer at Old Trafford."

NAIJ.com previously reported that Manchester United fans fans are tired of their manager Jose Mourinho following his comments after their elimination in the Champions League.

The Red Devils were embarrassed at Old Trafford by visiting Spanish side Sevilla who beat them 2-1 to qualify for the quarter final.

Mourinho's side looked to be favorites to reach the last 8 after the 0-0 draw in Spain but two Wissam Ben Yedder's goals dumped United out.
