Friday's Sport: Last chance saloon for Frank Lampard

Everton head to Old Trafford on Friday for an FA Cup third round clash against Manchester United with Frank Lampard's position as manager looking increasingly unstable.

A seven-game winless run across all competitions has put the strain on the former England international and an early exit from the 142nd edition of the oldest football tournament in the world could spell the end of his Goodison Park reign.

There is also Premiership Rugby to take in on Friday, as leaders Saracens travel to fourth-place Gloucester, while the PGA Tour action continues with round two of the Sentry Tournament of Champions which you can follow on bet365's Live Golf Tracker.

Ludlow, Southwell, Kempton and Dundalk also provide the racing action across the day and, as always, you can follow every race on our Sports Live Streaming platform.

FA Cup: Red Devils to pile misery on Everton

OddsMan Utd 4/9, Draw 10/3, Everton 13/2

Everton's woeful run of form has seen them slip to 18th in the Premier League and another defeat on Friday, albeit against in-form opposition, would heap even more pressure on Lampard.

The former Chelsea boss has struggled to turn around the fortunes of the club since being appointed at the end of January last year and patience is said to be running thin with the board, who may decide to pull the trigger on the young English coach.

A victory at Old Trafford looks like a tall order for the Toffees, especially given the fact they are facing a United side enjoying a six-match winning run across all competitions.

Erik ten Hag's troops have won their last seven home assignments - six of those coming without conceding - and they are 5/4 To Win to Nil.

OddsGloucester 13/8, Tie 20/1, Saracens 8/15

Saracens have been the dominant force in the Premiership this season and they head to Kingsholm Stadium sitting top of the standings, 10 points clear of second-place Sale.

With 10 wins and just one defeat in the league, it looks like the Sarries will be difficult to stop in their quest for silverware this term and they will be eyeing another victory at Gloucester on Friday.

The Cherry & Whites are fourth in the table, 18 points behind their opponents, but they have won their last four home assignments and could pose a few problems to the visitors.

Saracens edged out Gloucester 41-39 in a thriller when they met back in September and there is the hope another entertaining contest will be witnessed in South West England.

Each of the trio managed to card a first round 64 to commence their PGA Tour seasons in a positive way.
