Arteta looks safe at Arsenal following derby victory - if bookies are to be believed

Gunners boss out to 6/1 to be next Premier League manager to leave having been as short as 4/9 at the start of the month.

Mikel Arteta can breathe more easily at Arsenal - at least if the bookies are to be believed.

The Gunners boss headed into September as the 4/9 favourite to be the next Premier League boss to leave after his side opened the campaign with three successive league defeats.

Zero points and zero goals scored saw the calls for his removal escalate and had #artetaout trending across Twitter.

But fast forward to the end of September and it is his opposite number at Tottenham, Nuno Espirito Santo, who finds himself the subject of sacking calls following a run of three defeats.

The latest of those was a 3-1 loss at the Etihad on Sunday, a result that saw the Gunners leapfrog their north London rivals in the Premier League table.

As a result, Arteta has drifted out to 6/1 with Planet Sport Bet in the Next Manager to Leave Post market.

The victory, Arsenal's third in a row, has also seen their odds of a top-four finish cut from 12/1 to 6s.

"It has been quite a turnaround for Arteta," admitted Planet Sport Bet spokesperson Mike Grenham. "From appearing a dead man walking only a month ago, he is now riding the crest of a wave following the derby victory.

"However, fortunes can quickly turn, as Nuno Espirito Santo has found out."

Nuno is now 4/1 second favourite to be the next Premier League manager out of the door.

After leading Spurs to the top of the table on the back of three successive wins, the former Wolves boss has seen his side lose three on the bounce.

It has seen Tottenham slide to 11th ahead of Saturday's encounter with Aston Villa.

Steve Bruce Newcastle United Sep21

Steve Bruce remains the manager most at threat, with Saturday's draw at Watford - their third stalemate in four - leaving Newcastle hovering just above the drop zone.

Bruce is 2/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave.

Fellow strugglers Norwich, meanwhile, have been cut to 1/4 for an instant return to the Championship after their 2-0 defeat at Everton - their sixth loss in a row.
