Manchester United’s defeat to Olympiacos on Tuesday night has prompted bookmakers to slash the odds on David Moyes remaining as manager of the Premier League champions beyond this season.

Olympiacos ran out 2-0 winners in Athens in their first leg of their Champions League last 16 encounter, as Alejandro Dominguez and Joel Campbell providing the Greek side with the goals.

Manchester United had been expected to secure a positive result at the Karaiskakis Stadium and now face an uphill task to say the very least when Olympiacos arrive at Old Trafford in three weeks.

Yet another defeat in the inconsistent reign of Moyes has resulted in Coral giving odds of just 7/4 for the Scot staying in his position as Manchester United after the end of his first season in charge.

Manchester United had been unbeaten in Europe under Moyes until the defeat in Greece, and the the lacklustre display was akin to many performances produced by the club domestically this term.

They are currently placed sixth in the Premier League with their title prospects extinguished, while they are 11 points shy of the coveted top four positions.
