Mikel Arteta currently 4/6 favourite to leave Arsenal

After a poor start to the season, Mikel Arteta currently sees himself as the favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave this season according to bookmakers.

A 6-0 thrashing of West Brom in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening may have relieved some of the pressure around Arteta's position with the Arsenal board, but with a tricky away fixture at Manchester City up next it may get even worse in the league for the Gunners.

Crystal Palace manager and former Arsenal icon Patrick Vieira is also without a win this season and sees himself at second in the odds to be the next manager to leave at 7/1.

Manager Odds to leave Probability
Mikel Arteta 4/6 60%
Patrick Vieira 7/1 12.5%
Xisco Munoz 8/1 11.1%
Steve Bruce 10/1 9.1%
Ralph Hassenhuttl 12/1 7.7%
Bruno Lage 16/1 5.9%

Arsenal have had their worst start EVER in the league

The Gunners have started terribly in the Premier League so far this season, with back-to-back defeats and two blanks in front of goal.

in 118 years as a top-four league side, Arsenal has never been defeated twice without scoring!

With 2 defeats and failing to score in either game, Arsenal has rapidly recorded their worst start to a football season in the top four tiers of English football in 118 years!

They started the season against newly-promoted Brentford away and were soundly beaten 2-0 against the new boys which started the alarm bells ringing early. 

Then came rivals Chelsea at the Emirates and Romelu Lukaku and co ran rings around the Gunners to also beat them 2-0. 

With a poor pre-season too there have been a lot of Arsenal fans already calling for Mikel Arteta's head, with fans blocking his car and demanding he leaves the club after the Chelsea defeat last weekend.

The Gunners now backed in to finish in the bottom half this season

Arsenal have seen themselves go from 4/1 at the start of the season to 7/4 to finish in the bottom half of the league this season. 

That means that bookmakers are giving the Gunners a 36.4% chance of finishing in the bottom half this season. 

Their odds have also been slashed from 50/1 into 25/1 to be relegated this season, with bookmakers not taking any chances of Arteta's men having even further misery this year. 

With odds of just 7/4 to finish in the bottom half, bookmakers are taking no chances that Arteta's men continue their bad form this season.
