Former Manchester United player Michael Carrick is second favourite in the betting market

Michael Carrick is the second favourite in the betting market despite not having a permanent managerial job on his CV yet.

Carrick has been a football coach since his retirement from football back in 2018 and spent three years at the club as part of Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's backroom staff.

When Solskjaer was dismissed, Carrick took charge of three Manchester United fixtures as caretaker manager, beating Villarreal and Arsenal while drawing 1-1 against Chelsea.

Boro still as big as 28/1 to be relegated despite sitting in 18th in the Championship

Middlesbrough are a massive 28/1 to be relegated from the Championship this season despite sitting in 18th place in the table.

Wednesday's three points against Birmingham were massive for the club with it moving them out of the relegation zone.

Bookies put a massive 17 clubs above Middlesbrough in the relegation odds, giving them just a 3.4% chance of them going down this season.

Middlesbrough are as big as 28/1 to be relegated from the Championship this season despite being sat in 18th place in the table after a terrible start to the season.
