Luis Enrique favourite to replace Conte as Chelsea manager

| 09.04.2018

Is former Barca boss heading to London?

The pressure is mounting on boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea. And the latest odds from Coral suggest Luis Enrique is the man most likely to take over the reins at Stamford Bridge.

The former Barcelona boss is 6/4 favourite for the Blues job. That puts him firmly at the head of the betting, with Massimiliano Allegri next best at 9/2.

Meanwhile, it’s 7/1 for Carlo Ancelotti to return to the club he managed from 2009-2011, with Diego Simeone 10/1 to take the gig.

However, whoever is in charge next term has little chance of overseeing Champions League football.

The Blues are now a huge 20/1 to finish in the top four. Though their frustrated fans could finish the season on a high, with 13/8 for Chelsea to lift the FA Cup.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “It’s looking almost inconceivable that Conte will remain in charge past the end of this season and we think Chelsea are likely to turn to ex-Barcelona boss Enrique in their attempts to return to Europe’s top table.”

**Next Chelsea manager

6/4 Luis Enrique, 9/2 Massimiliano Allegri, 7/1 Carlo Ancelotti, 10/1 Diego Simeone, 12/1 Guus Hiddink, 12/1 Leonardo Jardim, 14/1 Maurizio Sarri, 16/1 Thomas Tuchel, 16/1 Brendan Rogers, 25/1 bar

**Chelsea to finish in the top four this season – 20/1

**Chelsea to win the FA Cup this season – 13/8
