Burnley boss Sean Dyche and Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe hammered into joint-favourites to leave their posts after Claudio Ranieri's Watford exit

Burnley boss Sean Dyche and Turf Moor predecessor Eddie Howe have been installed as joint favourites in the 'Next Premier League Manager To Go' market.

Dyche, 50, the Premier League's longest-reigning manager at present, has seen his odds hammered in from 14/1 to 5/1 with BetVictor following Claudio Ranieri's departure from Watford on Monday.

The Clarets have won just once all season and are rooted to the foot of the division, but picked up what could turn out to be a valuable point against Arsenal at the Emirates.
