Next West Ham Manager Odds: Graham Potter Favourite To Replace David Moyes
David Moyes is once again under pressure at West Ham United and the best betting sites have opened a market on who the club’s next manager will be.
On the face of things, West Ham appear to hold a commendable ninth position in the Premier League, but the fact the Hammers are on a run of eight matches without a win in all competitions has led to cause for concern.
The London club have picked up just three points from their last possible 18 in the league and they could quickly find themselves in the bottom half if things don't improve.
With results deteriorating at a rapid pace, Moyes has consequently come in for scrutiny by Hammers fans.
Who might replace the Scot if he is relieved of his duties? Check out the latest odds below, followed by our analysis of the various contenders for the position.
Potter And Still The Leading Contenders
Graham Potter is the 15/8 favourite with football betting sites to be the next permanent manager at the London Stadium.
Things did not work out at Chelsea, but Potter demonstrated his considerable coaching acumen during his time in charge of Brighton & Hove Albion.
Indeed, the Seagulls’ subsequent success under Roberto De Zerbi would not have been possible had his predecessor not laid such solid foundations.
Potter is biding his time before getting back in the dugout, but the West Ham job may well prove too attractive to refuse at this stage.
Due to his Football Manager-playing past, Will Still has become well known in England without ever having managed a first team there.
But the 31-year-old is proving that he is an excellent coach in real life, with his Reims side sitting eighth in the Ligue 1 standings.
Still supported West Ham as a kid and he has gone on record to say that he dreams of managing the club one day. Some would see this as a left-field pick, but his price of 3/1 suggests otherwise.
Noble And Cooper Well In The Race
Former West Ham captain Mark Noble could potentially replace Moyes on an interim basis and his odds have been slashed from 16/1 into just 7/2 on new betting sites.
If the former midfielder went on to do a good job with the Hammers, he would surely be offered the job on a full-time basis.
He knows the club inside out and would have the support of the entire fan base from day one.
However, Noble does not have anything in the way of coaching experience, while the fact he is serving as West Ham’s sporting director suggests he is not especially interested in a post-playing career on the training pitch.
Steve Cooper's sacking by Nottingham Forest has seen him emerge as a 5/1 shot for the role.
The Welshman has been out of the dugout for almost two months and seems to be linked with almost every Premier League managerial vacancy at present.
Carrick And Mourinho's Price Shortens
Michael Carrick can be backed at 6/1 with UK bookmakers. After a poor start to the season, his Middlesbrough team have turned their form around and they sit seven points off a play-off place.
Whether he would jump ship at the business end of the campaign remains to be seen.
Jose Mourinho's chances of being next through the door at the London Stadium have increased considerably, hence his new odds of 8/1.
Having already managed three Premier League clubs, the Portuguese boss may be finished with English football, but his recent sacking as Roma manager leaves him out of a job.
Fonseca And Corberan Are Outside Bets
Paulo Fonseca has been linked with several Premier League jobs in the past, but for now he remains at the helm of French side Lille.
He led the team to a fifth-place finish last term, and has continued that good form for the first half of the 2023/24 season.
Fonseca is an outside pick at 10/1. He certainly has strong credentials - the Portuguese previously won three league titles in Ukraine with Shakhtar Donetsk - and seems open to a move to England, but Fonseca might not be among West Ham’s top candidates.
Carlos Corberan is available at odds of 14/1 with betting apps.
The Spaniard is currently in charge of West Bromwich Albion, who are well amongst the play-off hopefuls.
His odds could shrink if the Baggies climb into the automatic promotion spots, but for now he is not a leading contender.
Bielsa And Dyche Unlikely To Be Considered
Marcelo Bielsa continues to drift in the market and is now 16/1 to be Moyes' successor.
He only recently signed a deal with the Uruguay national team and is unlikely to leave that job so early in his tenure, not least as Copa America is coming up this summer.
Sean Dyche (20/1) has an almighty task on his hands if he wants to keep Everton in the Premier League this season.
If the Toffees were not handed a 10-point deduction, his side would be well clear of the relegation places.
He continues to do an admirable job at Goodison Park, but may jump ship if a secure Premier League job is tabled.
