Jose Mourinho is the 11-8 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club after Tottenham piled on the pressure with a 3-0 victory at Manchester United on Monday.

There were plenty of positive aspects about United's first-half performance, prompting Mourinho to launch a passionate post-match defence of his players.

But the defeat leaves United 13th in the table and increases the importance of United's fixture at Burnley on Sunday.

Paddy Power think Mourinho's time at Old Trafford could be coming to an end and have paid out on him being the first top flight manager to leave his post.

Hills offer 8-1 that he is removed before the weekend clash at Turf Moor while they go 4-7 that Mourinho's leaves the club this year and 4-9 he goes before the end of the season.

Mourinho will remain under pressure unless United can force themselves back into the top four reckoning.

The Red Devils are six points adrift of Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham and four behind Manchester City.

It is imperative that they don't lose any more ground in the short term but market confidence is evaporating with United out to 50-1 in the title betting and 15-8 for a top four finish.

Should the Red Devils hierarchy opt for a change, Zinedine Zidane may be high on their list of potential replacements.

The former Real Madrid manager is Hills' 7-4 favourite to replace Mourinho, while Mauricio Pochettino is 13-2 and Antonio Conte 10-1.

Tottenham's win lifted them up to second in the Premier League.
The Londoners have shortened to 12-1 to win the title and 2-5 for a top-four finish.
