O'Neill favourite to replace sacked Pulis

TONY PULIS was finally put out of his West Brom misery and there appears to be a three-way hunt to replace the sacked Baggies boss.

Michael O’Neill is the favourite with some firms rating the current Northern Ireland manager odds-on to be next in at the Hawthorns, although he can still be backed at 2-1.

Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes is 4-1 with Sam Allardyce 5-1.

Allardyce is a big Wolves fan, although desperate times call for desperate measures and Albion are 17th in the Premier League and 9-4 to go down.

Match in Focus

Leicester v C Palace

Home Win Draw Away Win
Expert verdict
There has been plenty of late drama for Palace in their last two matches, but what is still missing for the Eagles is an away goal. Eight road trips have yielded two points and not one goal and Leicester look a decent price to make this another fruitless trip for Palace. The Foxes have won their last four, scoring ten goals.
