Enrique heads betting to replace Wenger

Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is the 3-1 favourite to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.

Enrique has been on a sabbatical since his contract at the Camp Nou expired last summer but, with a move to the Emirates as short as 6-4, his return to management could be imminent.

Germany coach Joachim Low is among the other likely candidates and is now as short as 4-1 to take the position, while former Arsenal captains Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira have also been linked with the job at best-priced odds of 12-1 and 16-1 respectively.

Previous favourites Brendan Rodgers and Thomas Tuchel have both drifted significantly over the last week, with the ex-Liverpool boss 14-1 with bet365, Betfair and Paddy Power, while the German is now a best-priced 28-1.

Match in Focus


Villarreal v Sociedad

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Sociedad have scored two goals in their last seven away league games
Expert verdict
An untimely injury to Juanmi leaves Sociedad looking light in attack as they had for Villarreal. New Sociedad boss Asier Garitano has had to deal with a number of injuries and departures and they could struggle early on. They may well struggle on the road anyway having won just one of their last 15 road trips.
