Roy Hodgson cut to 4/1 to be the next manager to leave

Roy Hodgson is now 4/1 (from 9/1) with Sky Bet to be the next Premier League manager to leave their post after Liverpool's humiliating 2-1 defeat to Blackpool.

The Reds are now third from bottom of the Premier League after having their worst start to a season since the Premier League began.

Pressure increasing on Roy Hodgson after another home defeat

Speculation is already gathering over his replacement and former Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is now 5/2 to be the next Liverpool manager.

The defeat prompted calls from the Kop for Kenny Dalglish to be handed the reigns again and the Anfield icon is 10/1 to replace Hodgson.

Sky Bet's Tim Reynolds said: "The pressure is really starting to mount on Roy Hodgson and if results don't start going his way, he could soon be on his way out of Anfield."

Arsenal drift to 10/1 for Premier League title

Arsenal are now available at 10/1 with Sky Bet to win the Premier League after their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

Didier Drogba kept up his remarkable scoring record against the Gunners by breaking the deadlock before Alex's stunning free-kick secured a victory which ensured the Blues moved five points clear at the top of the league, leaving them 8/15 to retain the title.

Drogba, who has now scored 13 goals in 13 encounters with Arsene Wenger's men, has come into 15/8 to be the Premier League's top scorer this season after notching his sixth goal of the season.

The Gunners have slipped seven points adrift of Chelsea and down to fourth place after Manchester City's 2-1 win over Newcastle saw Roberto Mancini's men move third.

Arsenal are still 1/5 to secure a top-four finish, while big spending City are 4/11 and Spurs are 5/2, despite being on level points with their north London rivals.

Europe 10/11 to win the 2012 Ryder Cup

Following their close fought victory in the 2010 Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor, Europe are 10/11 to defend their title (11/10 USA and 11/1 Tie) when the two teams meet in 2012 at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois.

Europe were as short as 1/750 to win the Ryder Cup at one point today but a spirited comeback from the USA team saw the Ryder Cup go down to the last match, where Graham McDowell putted out on the 17th to seal a 14 ½ to 13 ½ victory.

Sky Bet's senior golf compiler John Rhodes said: "After an enthralling Celtic Manor showpiece, Europe head back across the pond to Illinois to defend the Ryder Cup in 2012. With rising US stars like Rickie Fowler and Anthony Kim and European young guns Rory McIlroy and Matteo Manasserro all vying to be in their respective teams, the 2012 Ryder Cup looks set to be a real classic."
