Manchester United cut from 500/1 to 50/1 to be relegated after shocking start to Premier League campaign

MANCHESTER UNITED'S topsy-turvy start to the season sees them at almost the same price to win the league as they are to be relegated.

The Red Devils have gone from 500/1 to 50/1 to be relegated following their humiliating 6-1 defeat at home to Spurs.

This means last season's third-placed finishers are almost the same price to win the league as they are to be relegated.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are now huge 40/1 outsiders to win the league after a falling behind their title rivals drastically in the transfer window.

Manchester United's two home defeats to Spurs and Crystal Palace leaves them two places above the drop zone.

The Red Devils will hope their last ditch arrivals on transfer deadline day will hit the ground running as they face Newcastle, PSG and Chelsea next.

Ladbrokes odds:

Man United to win Premier League – 40/1

Man United to be relegated – 50/1

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "There's a long way to go but United have hardly set the world alight so far this season and it's only right their relegation odds have taken a hit after an awful start."

Solskjaer is the second favourite in the Premier League sack race – only behind Fulham boss Scott Parker who has lost all four games so far.

With the Norweigan's days looking numbered, Mauricio Pochettino is the odds-on favourite to be his replacement at Old Trafford.
