Arteta the outright favourite again

Arteta has managed to ride consistently high in the betting as favourite for the Arsenal job since his compatriot Unai Emery was sacked and is currently trading at odds of 10/3.

Ljunberg, however, is still the Gunners’ second favourite despite his first win as temporary manager and remains at 5/1 for the Arsenal job. Arsenal faces Belgian side Standard Liege in the Europa League final group stage match on Thursday night before the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City to the Emirates on Sunday, and good results in those games could well shorten the Swede’s chances of becoming the next Arsenal boss.

Marcelino, on the other hand, is priced at 11/2 after reports that he was in London for talks with representatives of the North London club, while Vieira, who had been joint-favourite with Arteta last week, has slipped to 7/1 despite saying he would listen to an offer from the club where he spent nine with as a player.

Former Juventus manager Allegri is currently at 10/1 despite saying he would only take a job in the summer while Napoli current manager Carlo Ancelotti.
