Mancini favourite to replace under-fire Bilic at West Ham

Bookmakers are betting on Slaven Bilic's replacement at West Ham
1 of 1

Three things to watch out for this weekend

1 Pressure building on Bilic
It's never a good sign for a manager when bookmakers open a market on your replacement while you are still in the job but that has happened to West Ham's Slaven Bilic.

The Hammers head to Hull with Roberto Mancini the 3-1 favourite to replace Bilic when he departs, which could be sooner rather than later if the tabloid reports are on the money.

Eddie Howe is next on Ladbrokes' list at 4-1, while others linked with the post include 20-1 Jaap Stam and David Wagner at 25-1. 

2 Ups and downs are taking shape
Those who backed Rotherham for relegation from the Sky Bet Championship at 9-4 should be collecting this weekend with the Millers needing a miracle to survive, while in Sky Bet League Two Doncaster may be celebrating promotion.

If Rovers beat Grimsby, Stevenage fail to overcome Barnet and there is a draw at Kenilworth Road, it will be party time for Donny and those who backed them at 2-1 to go up.

3 Euro heavyweights collide
In the week that Theresa May triggered Article 50 it is perhaps ironic that football fans will be enjoying a feast of fine European football on offer and all of it will be covered by Racing Post Sport.

The French League Cup final sees Monaco take on PSG, the top two in Holland (Feyenoord and Ajax) and Portugal (Benfica and Porto) do battle and the top action is rounded off by Juventus's trip to Napoli.
