Mark Hughes, Chris Hughton and Brendan Rodgers all suffered heavy opening day defeats and William Hill offer 9/1 that two or three of them have gone before Christmas, 7/4 one of them has and 8/15 that none of them have . Another side struggling to adjust to the new season was Arsenal as they started life without Robin van Persie and William Hill make the Gunners 8/11 to score before their former striker does (Evens they do not).
There were certainly a few sides who looked as though they were still on their holidays and their managers will have to turn things around quickly otherwise they could find themselves out of a job before the year is out, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
How many of Hughes, Hughton and Rodgers gone by Christmas: 8/15 none; 7/4 one; 9/1 two or three
Who will score first: 8/11 Arsenal; Evens Robin van Persie
