Paolo Di Canio is Sky Bet's 11/4 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to depart this season after Sunderland's 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was previously the leader in the market but his price has been pushed out to 4/1 after a late goal from Hatem Ben Arfa secured a 1-0 win at home to Fulham.

Everton chief Roberto Martinez continues to wait for his first Premier League win in charge of the Toffees following the 0-0 draw at Cardiff.

The Spaniard has been cut from 28/1 to 12/1 to leave first by Sky Bet.

In Sky Bet's title betting, Manchester City's 2-0 win at home to Hull saw them trimmed to 2/1 favourites ahead of the massive Liverpool v Manchester United and Arsenal v Tottenham games on Super Sunday.

Alvaro Negredo scored his first City goal to open the scoring and he's now a 20/1 shot to end the season as the top-flight's top goalscorer.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Blackpool sit top after the 1-0 win at home to Watford but they are all the way out at 33/1 in the title betting.

QPR are the 11/4 favourites to finish on top after beating Leeds 1-0 in the lunchtime kick-off and both Watford and Nottingham Forest have been pushed out slightly to 13/2 and 15/2 respectively after defeats.

Wigan were the team to beat Forest and the Latics have been cut to 9/1 to return to the Premier League on top of the second tier of English football.

Leyton Orient have made it five wins out of five in Sky Bet League 1 but odds of 12/1 for the title show there is a long way to go.

Wolves are still unbeaten following a 3-1 win at Port Vale and Kenny Jackett's men head the title betting at 13/8.

Chesterfield now sit top of the Sky Bet League 2 table and on top of the title betting at 3/1 after a 2-0 win at pre-season favourites Portsmouth.

The Spireites replace Oxford, who move out to 15/2 in the title betting, at the summit after the U's drew 1-1 at home to Rochdale.

    terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

    he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

    o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
