Next Aston Villa manager odds: Pochettino and Beale head betting
Pochettino favourite in next Aston Villa manager odds
Mauricio Pochettino is the 7/4 favourite with Coral to replace Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard who was sacked after Thursday’s 3-0 defeat at Fulham.
QPR boss Michael Beale is the 2/1 second favourite, ahead of former Burnley manager Sean Dyche at 9/2.
“As always when a Premier League managerial vacancy arises, there are no shortage of big names in the frame, with Mauricio Pochettino the current favourite to replace Steven Gerrard at Villa Park,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
Vilal have won just two of 11 league outings this term, with Gerrard paying the price for poor form and results.

Gerrard led Villa to a 14th-place finish last season but had been expected to push the midlands club higher up the table in the new campaign.
Now though, the ex-Liverpool and England midfielder finds himself out of work after a chastening loss at Craven Cottage.
“Aston Villa football club can confirm that head coach Steven Gerrard has left the club with immediate effect,” read a Villa statement “We would like to thank Steven for his hard work and commitment and wish him well for the future.”
Gerrard admitted he was in a “very difficult position” straight after Villa’s hefty loss in south west London.
The former Rangers manager insisted he would not quit his role but was shortly given no choice in the matter as Villa’s board acted swiftly to remove him after 11 months in charge.
