Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui is now as short as 13/8 to be the first manager to leave

Julen Lopetegui remains the favourite with UK Betting Sites to be the first Premier League manager to leave this season with the new campaign kicking off in just under two weeks.

Lopetegui was reportedly considering leaving Wolves towards the back end of last season according to the Daily Mail due to the club's FFP situation.

Wolves have a tricky opening to the season with an away game at Old Trafford to face Manchester United on the first Monday Night Football awaiting them.

Paddy Power have shortened Lopetegui's odds on being the first Premier League manager to go from 4/1 now to just 13/8 with those odds putting him clear at the top of the market.
