Sheffield United suffered their eighth defeat in nine top-flight games on Sunday against West Ham United and are bottom of the Premier League having scored just four goals this season.
So although West Brom boss Slaven Bilic remains the Premier League sack race favourite following their 1-0 defeat at Manchester United, his odds have drifted as Wilder’s have shrunk, as have those quoted about United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being the next manager to go.

Bookies losing faith in Wilder
Chris Wilder produced one of the managerial performances of last season by steering Sheffield United to ninth place in their first season back in the Premier League. However, the 888sport traders seem increasingly doubtful that he can repeat the feat and keep them up this term.
There appears to be a whiff of second-season syndrome about United and the lack of a reaction to their poor start after the latest international break reaction means Wilder’s odds on being the next manager to leave have been slashed from 10/1 to 11/4.
That makes him second favourite behind West Brom’s Bilic (9/4) and ahead of Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 7/2, with Fulham’s Scott Parker next in the betting at 4/1.
Bilic and Solskjaer were both eased in the Premier League sack race market after United won the pair’s weekend clash, suggesting the bookies believe the Bramall Lane board are most likely to take drastic action in the near future.
