Roy Hodgson is now the 1/6 favourite to return as Crystal Palace manager after Patrick Vieira was sacked on Friday.
While the Eagles remain 12th in the table, they are now just three points above the relegation zone.
Vieira earned huge praise for a superb first season at Selhurst, overhauling the team's style of play, leading them to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and securing a safe 12th-place finish.
But this term has been very different, with a stark drop in their underlying numbers.
Palace were well beaten at Arsenal only days after Vieira was sacked, losing 4-1 at the Emirates to extend their poor run of form to W1, D5, L8 since the World Cup break.

Vierira's predecessor Hodgson has been out of work since leaving Watford at the end of last season following a short, unsuccessful spell in charge.
Prior to that he spent four years in charge at Selhurst, with Palace finishing safely in mid-table every season.
The former Fulham and England manager is now as short as 1/6 to make a return as Eagles boss, with current Palace caretaker manager (and U21's coach) Paddy McCarthy the second favourite at 6/1.
