"With Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all looking very solid at the top of the league table, Manchester United may have to settle for a Europa League spot next season," said Coral's Tim Reynolds.

"United have a very busy period ahead of them and with a league fixture away to Chelsea before the end of January, it's not looking good for David Moyes and his side."

Tottenham have been cut to 3/1 to finish in the Champions League qualification places after victory at Old Trafford with Everton out to 5/1 with Ladbrokes after drawing 1-1 with Stoke. United meanwhile are out to 17/10 with Ladbrokes.

West Ham can be backed at 7/4 to go down with BetVictor after they lost 2-1 at Fulham, who are now 2/1 with bet365, BetVictor and William Hill.

Sunderland are into 4/6 after they lost 1-0 at home to Aston Villa, who are now out to 11/1 with Ladbrokes, while Crystal Palace's draw with Norwich saw those sides trimmed to 8/13 and 3/1 respectively.

Cardiff are 13/8 with bet365 having played well in defeat at Arsenal.

Starting 2014 with a defeat sees West Ham chief Sam Allardyce as the 1/2 favourite in BetVictor's next Premier League manager to leave market, with Sky Bet and Paddy Power only marginally bigger at 4/7.

Norwich boss Chris Hughton is next at 13/2.
