Ex-Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been backed into joint favourite to take over from Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs.

Leicester City manager Rodgers has guided his side to fourth in the table after eight matches.

And he did well to turn the club's fortunes around last season after he left Parkhead to take over from Claude Puel.

So it's little wonder that the former Liverpool manager is being touted for the big jobs down south.

Pochettino, meanwhile, has watched his players fail to start the season in any sort of rhythm and has them languishing in ninth place.

Pressure is beginning to mount on the Argentine and Rodgers has emerged as 7/2 joint favourite to replace him should Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board decide to act.

José Mourinho is the other favourite alongside Rodgers to land the role.

The never-ending managerial merry-go-round down south is in full flow and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's position is also under threat.

The Red Devils sit 12th in the Premier League and it has been reported that the Norwegian could lose his job if his team fail to beat Norwich later this month.

And, unsurprisingly, the potentially outgoing Pochettino is 2/1 favourite to take the reins at Old Trafford - though Rodgers is also third favourite for that role at a respectable 15/2.
