GRAHAM POTTER is the frontrunner to become Tottenham’s next permanent manager.
That’s according to bookmakers Betfair, who’ve installed the highly-rated Brighton boss at 3/1 to replace Nuno Espirito Santo.
However, there are plenty of other candidates tipped to challenge including Brendan Rodgers, Eddie Howe and Mauricio Pochettino.
Nuno was appointed on a two-year deal in June after a turbulent search to replace Jose Mourinho.
And things couldn’t have started better for the 47-year-old, who claimed August’s Manager of the Month.
His side were top of the division after beating Manchester City, Wolves and Watford in his opening three Premier League fixtures.
But Tottenham’s form has taken a nosedive.
Spurs have lost three-consecutive top-flight fixtures including a 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Arsenal on Sunday.

They’ve recorded the second-lowest attempts on goal in the Premier League – five less than rock-bottom Norwich.
Supporters are growing frustrated and Nuno’s odds of being the first manager sacked this season have shortened from 40/1 to 9/1.
If chairman Daniel Levy pulls the trigger – Brighton’s Potter is the standout favourite.
Potter has enjoyed a tremendous start to the campaign with the Seagulls having won four of their opening five fixtures.
The 46-year-old was on Spurs’ four-man shortlist over the summer before Nuno was appointed.
Elsewhere Brendan Rodgers is available at 9/2 with former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe a 5/1 shot.
A sensational return for Mauricio Pochettino is offered at 6/1 with Roberto Martinez and Scott Parker priced at 15/2 and 9/1 respectively.
Erik ten Hag, Simone Inzaghi and Julen Lopetegui are all 10/1.
England legends Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard also also in the picture at 17/1 and 25/1 with John Terry the outsider of the group at 35s.
