Aston Villla are odds-on for relegation from the Premier League and Paul Lambert odds-on to be next top-flight manager out of a job after a 2-1 home defeat to fellow strugglers Newcastle.

Papiss Cisse and Yohan Cabaye fired Newcastle into a deserved 2-0 lead by half-time, but Villa hit back in the second half and cut the deficit through a Christian Benteke penalty. But they could not find the equaliser and drop into the bottom three as a result.

The Villans are now 8/13 for the drop with Sky Bet but Newcastle are out to 11/2 for the drop.

QPR and Wigan both earned draws on Tuesday night and their odds to go down are 4/7 and 6/4 respectively.

Lambert has also been cut again to be next Premier League manager to leave his post and Sky Bet now make him just 4/7.

Chelsea interim manager Rafa Benitez is next in the betting at 3/1 while Sky Bet offer 6/1 that no more top-flight managers lose their job this season.

QPR's point came against title-chasing Manchester City at Loftus Road and Roberto Mancini's side have subsequently drifted to 9/2 for the title. Manchester United - who play Southampton on Wednesday night - are 1/5.
