Betway and, accoridng to reports, Paddy Power have suspended betting on the market

At least one bookmaker has suspended betting on Antonio Conte being sacked as Chelsea boss, with the Italian only having taken over this summer.

Betway have suspended their market, with reports that Paddy Power have slashed their odds on the market.

"Our traders are on red alert after a flurry of telling bets on Antonio Conte being the next Premier League manager to leave their post were placed this afternoon," Betway's Alan Alger told

"We’ve now suspended betting on Conte getting the sack."

The former Serie A-winning Juventus manager was confirmed as Chelsea manager before leading Italy to the quarter-finals at Euro 2016.

Thus far this season, Chelsea have won four, lost two and drawn one of their Premier League fixtures to sit seventh in the table and have also advanced to the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
