We think Adkins, not Hughes, will be clearing his desk

The game likely to get the most column inches this weekend is QPR v Southampton, with both managers coming into the game under intense pressure.

Rangers are 20/21 to get all three points with the Saints 31/10 and the draw at 13/5.

Nigel Adkins is 11/10 favourite to be the first Premier League managerial casualty of the season with Mark Hughes 5/2 and Roberto Mancini 10s.

Rangers are 5/4 to be relegated at the end of the season following their latest defeat, at Stoke, and this is a must-win game with the Saints having conceded 18 goals in their five away games to date.

Bobby Zamora may not actually like watching or playing football, but it’s about time he did the business for which he is so well paid.

The England international is 6/1 to open the scoring and 8/5 to net at any time and I think Hughes will start with the former Fulham striker. As Elvis so famously said, it’s now or never.

No win in three in the Premier League for Chelsea after Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Luispool – and very much a case of two points dropped against a team very much there for the taking.

The Blues are out to 4/1 to regain the title. Manchester United are now odds-on for the first time at 4/5 with unbeaten Manchester City, who have limped their way into second place, 15/8 at BetVictor.

West Brom are the surprise package of the league for me this season and former Chelsea stalwart Steve Clarke has done a magnificent job in his first permanent managerial role.

He is making a great fist of his new role and Chelsea will know they have been in a game on Saturday.

The Blues are 20/21 to get back to winning ways with the Baggies 31/10 and the draw 27/10 at BetVictor.

City were fortunate to win at The Hawthorns earlier in the season, even allowing for the fact they had only 10 men for much of the game, and Albion have already beaten both Merseyside clubs on their home patch this term.

Romelu Lukaku cannot face his parent club as part of his loan deal and the hope is that the fitful Fernando Torres has his shooting boots on.

Torres is 5/1 to open the scoring with Daniel Sturridge 11/2 and the latter once again looked sharp when he came on for England in midweek.

One of these days Roberto Di Matteo is going to start with Sturridge in the league. It could be Saturday.

Sunderland played well at Goodison Park last weekend and are possibly overpriced at 21/5 at Craven Cottage against Fulham, who were fortunate to get a point against Everton in their last home game.

Martin Jol’s side are 8/11 and whilst they are obviously the most likely winners I certainly wouldn’t be getting involved at that price with the draw the recommendation at 14/5.

Dimitar Berbatov was in great form against Arsenal and is 19/4 to score the opener, while Alex Kacaniklic looks too big at 21/2.
