Villa eased for awkward FA Cup clash
ASTON VILLA have been eased from 15-8 to 2-1 to win Friday night's FA Cup fourth-round clash at Millwall after their Capital One Cup semi-final exit to League Two's Bradford City.
The defeat left manager Paul Lambert under increasing pressure and the 43-year-old is now the overwhelming 4-6 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to go.
However, bet365 believe Lambert is still more likely to last the season at Aston Villa and go about evens he stays and 8-11 that he leaves between now and May.
If Lambert is sacked during the season, it will be the first time owner Randy Lerner would have chosen to make such a move. Despite being a point above the relegation zone, Villa are currently the third favourites to suffer relegation and are being quoted at 11-10 generally to go down.
