Leicester sack Nigel Pearson

Nigel Pearson has been sacked as Leicester City manager just a day after losing 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace in a game which saw him controversially clash with Palace midfielder James McArthur.

Leicester City are now the 1/2 favourites to be relegated this season after winning just two Premier League matches since famously beating Manchester United 5-3 in September.

A host of managers have already been linked to the job with former player Neil Lennon and former manager Martin O’Neill reportedly in contention to replace Nigel Pearson.
