STAR PREVIEW: Deportivo La Coruna v Girona

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]embley did indeed turn out to be ‘home sweet home’ for Spurs yesterday with a convincing 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool and a nice boost for this column’s P&L to boot.

Earlier on Sunday afternoon Everton were on the wrong end of a 5-2 win for Arsenal and it proved too much for the Everton board who today sacked Ronald Koeman and are now looking for a new manager to pull their side out of the regelation zone.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is the early favourite at 7/4 with Star Sports but as we all know these next manager markets can be incredibly volatile so it’s a case of caveat emptor, as always.

David Unsworth, currently under-23 manager at Goodison, will take charge for the short-term.

No domestic action tonight but Sky have a double dose of La Liga with Deportivo La Coruna v Girona at 8pm.

It’s not the most promising match on paper – both sides are relegation candidates and Gerona have only won one of their nine league games this season. Their cause tonight not helped by the suspension of former Middlesbrough striker Christian Stuani who has scored four of their seven goals this season.

Deportivo are bidding for a third straight home win and should get it, though the margin might well be fine.

The hosts have only failed to score once in their last eight home games in La Liga and should leave the newly promoted Girona in further trouble at the foot of the table.

They might even be looking for a new manager. Any odds about Koeman?
