Moyes early favourite to be next Stoke manager

David Moyes could be set for a return to the dugout after being installed as the favourite to replace Gary Rowett at Stoke.

Rowett arrived at Stoke in May last year with the aim of leading the club back to the Premier League but was dismissed with the club languishing 14th in the Sky Bet Championship.

Paddy Power initially priced up Moyes as the 10-11 favourite and offered 5-1 Slavisa Jokanovic and 7-1 Sam Allardyce and Derek McInnes.

Stoke have 20 league games left to rescue their season but are eight points adrift of the playoffs.

They are 6-1 for a top six finish and 20-1 to win promotion.

Key stats
  • Both teams have scored in 13 of Arsenal’s last 15 Premier League encounters
Expert verdict
Arsenal and Chelsea played out a five-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge in August and the top four-chasing rivals should put on another entertaining show at the Emirates. The Blues, six points better off, edged the Gunners in August and are slight favourites to follow up but their hosts have not lost a league game at the Emirates since a 2-0 defeat to champions Manchester City in their curtain-raiser. A wager on a high-scoring draw could be the value.
