Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho could be sacked before Christmas after the opening day defeat to Everton.
Spurs were outplayed by Carlo Ancelotti’s men to win 1-0 in north London on Sunday.
And Ladbrokes has Mourinho down at 5/4 to be sacked by Daniel Levy before Christmas Day.
Labrokes’ Alex Apati said: “There’s no way Jose will be in charge of Spurs come the end of the season if results don’t improve.
“In fact we think he could well be sent packing before Christmas.”
Spurs are arguably under the spotlight making just two signings this summer in Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Wolves right-back Matt Doherty.
Reports now claim Mourinho is lining up a shock swoop for Crystal Palace flop Alexander Sorloth.
Reflecting on the defeat to Everton, the Special One branded his Spurs players “lazy” before admitting he was relieved the Amazon cameras were no longer there to capture his post-match message.
Mourinho blasted: “We were lazy in our pressing. That is a consequence of bad fitness, bad pre-season. Some players didn’t even have a pre-season.
