And Bruce is now second favourite at 10/3 to be sacked next in the Premier League.

Watford boss Xisco is 7/1 followed by Daniel Farke and Bruno Lage both at 15/2.

Arteta secured another tight win this weekend, beating Burnley 1-0, taking them up to 13th on six points.

But with the north London derby this weekend it could be another tricky week at the Emirates.

Norwich are on zero points with a goal difference of -12 from five games and Farke is now 15/2 to go while Sean Dyche, with Burnley on just one point, is into 18/1.

Even Nuno Espirito Santo is in the mix now at 16/1 after two defeats on the bounce, with the Chelsea thrashing on Sunday.

Spurs face Arsenal next in a huge game for both sides after their early season form.

After a strong first half against Chelsea Tottenham folded in the second and lost 3-0.

Nuno said: “We have to improve, the next challenge is to sustain the levels of performance through the game. I am really confident and positive that we will get there.

“We had to find solutions. Since the beginning this is our focus – to find solutions that can help the players to perform. To find partnerships. We started one way at the beginning of the season because those were the players available to build on.

“The international break came and we had problems. Now, I honestly believe the first half was really good, really good. The energy that we put on the pitch – the attitude, the spirit the players had. So if there’s only one positive today, that was the first half.”
