Crystal Palace have sacked manager Alan Pardew with the club 17th in the Premier League.

Pardew was appointed on a three-and-a-half-year deal in January 2015 but the 55-year-old has been dismissed after a run of one victory in 11 games.

Palace have taken just 26 points from their last 36 Premier League matches and are only one point above the relegation zone.

Former England boss Sam Allardyce is the bookmakers’ favourite to take over.
