Next Tottenham manager odds: Graham Potter favourite as pressure mounts on Nuno Espirito Santo


Tottenham Hotspur are once again being linked with a new manager amid poor form under current boss Nuno Espirito Santo, who has only been in the job for just over four months.

Spurs fell to back-to-back Premier League defeats after their latest 3-0 loss to Manchester United, which in turn eased the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid speculation over his future with the Red Devils.

However, this meant the spotlight instead turned to Spurs’ Portuguese head coach, who is now under extreme pressure with fan frustrations building up in the stadium during the contest on Saturday Night Football.

Nuno’s decision to take off forward Lucas Moura for Steven Bergwijn was greeted with a chorus of boos and chants of ‘you don’t know what you are doing.’

As such, speculation is mounting over Nuno Espirito Santo’s position, with fans calling for change after a disappointing showing against United.

football.london understands that Nuno is now playing a waiting game in relation to his immediate future in N17, with it being currently unknown what Daniel Levy‘s position is on the situation.

For now, the ex-Wolves manager is staying defiant and he called on fans to stick with his team in his post-match press conference.

“You can have the right message, the right idea and things don’t go [to plan],” he said.

“It’s not because of the message or understanding of the message. It’s the game of football.

“We started well, we had the ball and didn’t hurt too much. We had a goal that was not [allowed]. We conceded in a situation that we knew could happen and lost the momentum.

“Second half, we go again with the message but it’s about what happens in the pitch and I believe we can do better and I trust these players.

“I will support them and stick with them until the end but in a humble way I ask the fans to keep helping us and supporting us so we change.”

But the pressure is mounting on the former Wolves boss, with the Spurs head coach now the favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.

With this uncertain situation in mind, here are the current Betfair odds for who could take over in north London if Spurs were to make a change.

Graham Potter- 3/1

Brendan Rodgers- 9/2

Roberto Martinez- 9/1

Eddie Howe- 5/1

Antonio Conte- 15/2

Scott Parker- 10/1

Erik Ten Hag- 10/1

Simone Inzaghi- 14/1

Julen Lopetegui- 14/1

Marcelo Gallardo- 14/1

Jurgen Klinsmann- 14/1

Steven Gerrard- 17/1

Ronald Koeman- 20/1

Paulo Fonseca- 25/1

Ernesto Valverde- 20/1

Frank Lampard- 25/1

Lucien Favre- 25/1

John Terry- 35/1

Top of the list is the current Brighton boss Graham Potter, who has certainly succeeded in making a positive impact in the Premier League with his Seagulls outfit.

His style of play matches well with the Tottenham attacking philosophy that hasn’t been rediscovered yet since Mauricio Pochettino’s departure.

Additionally, the English manager has shown that he can compete at the highest level against the best teams in the league after the south coast side were able to fight back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with Liverpool yesterday.
