Maurizio Sarri favourite to take over at Chelsea

Luis Enrique and Max Allegri also in the frame

Maurizio Sarri's impending arrival at Stamford Bridge may spark Chelsea into life
1 of 1

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has emerged as the favourite to take over at Chelsea this summer if, as expected, Antonio Conte vacates the Stamford Bridge hotseat.

Sarri has steered Napoli to second place in Serie A and his work has appears to have caught the attention of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Betway make Sarri their 2-1 favourite to be the next Chelsea manager.

Luis Enrique is a 4-1 shot and Max Allegri, frequently linked with the Arsenal post, is a 5-1 chance.

Conte is 1-10 with Betway to leave Chelsea this summer.

Arsenal have suffered seven consecutive away league defeats but are odds-on favourites to triumph at Huddersfield on Sunday to give Arsene Wenger a winning send-off after 22 years in charge.

Betway are betting on which Arsenal player will be the last to score under Wenger and make Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, their goalscorer in a 3-1 loss at Leicester on Wednesday, the 11-10 favourite. Alexandre Lacazette is a 2-1 chance, while Danny Welbeck gets a 7-2 quote.

Shrewsbury are 2-9 favourites to come through their Sky Bet League One playoff semi-final against Charlton after a stunning goal from Jon Nolan handed them a 1-0 win at the Valley on Thursday.

Charlton won 2-0 away to the Shrews in a league match last month but they are as big as 7-2 to progress.

Fabian Delph has been heavily backed to make England's World Cup squad, shortening from 2-1 to 8-13 with Coral to be part of the final 23-man group.

Selection for the Manchester City left-back could be bad news for Manchester United's Ashley Young, who has eased from 4-7 to 8-13 in bet365's England squad betting.

QPR are searching for a new manager after Ian Holloway left the club after 18 months in charge. Steve McClaren has been widely tipped to succeed Holloway, who lost his job despite steering the Hoops to a respectable 16th place in the Sky Bet Championship.
