Guardiola v Mourinho: Who’ll last longest in the Premier League?
Pep Guardiola will outstay Jose Mourinho in Manchester, according to the latest odds at least. It’s 8/11 for the Spanish boss to last longer at Man City than Mourinho will at United, while even-money says he’ll leave before Jose.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager took three points from local rivals Manchester United at the first time of asking last weekend, maintaining his 100 per cent record in English football in the process.
That also meant that in the head-to-head market, it’s now eight wins for Pep over the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’, losing just three and drawing six.
Neither coach is known for sticking around at a club for long, with Mourinho managing a staggering seven clubs in sixteen years, including two stints at Chelsea, while this is Guardiola’s fourth managerial job since 2007.
Elsewhere, West Brom manager Tony Pulis is 9/4 to outlast Mark Hughes at Stoke City.
In fact, the Baggies boss also leads the way in the Premier League sack race, with even-money saying he’ll be the first top-flight gaffer to face the axe.
Meanwhile, despite his poor start to the campaign, Sunderland manager David Moyes is 8/11 to outstay Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace.
The Eagles boss picked up his first win of the season on Saturday against an in-form Middlesbrough side, while 53-year-old Moyes is still looking for his first win as Sunderland boss.
A spokesperson for Ladbrokes said: “Though the two Manchester bosses could stick around for some time, we think Mourinho will be the first to face the chop.”
