Sky Bet slashed the Black Cats chief's odds from 16/1 to 6/4 on Monday but its still considered more likely that there'll be no more managerial casualties (8/11) before the season is through.

Sunderland, , currently sit bottom of the Premier League and travel to Manchester City on Wednesday night, before a trip to Chelsea on Saturday.

Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "We cut Poyet to 12/1 this afternoon but the money just kept on coming even after eventually being backed in to 13/8.

"The flow appears to have been stemmed at 6/4, but as yet we're unsure what's fuelling this sudden interest ahead of their game at the Etihad Stadium."
