There’s been little remorse from owners across the Premier League so far this season, with six managers already facing the boot before Christmas!
We’re not sure the firing has been completed in 2021, and we’ve thrown together the candidates currently running in the Premier League Manager Sack Race…
It was always going to be an uphill climb for Rafa Benitez at Everton.
The former Reds boss got off to a pretty decent start this season, but injuries to key players such as Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Yerry Mina have seen the Toffees crack under pressure.
They’ve slid down to 14th in recent weeks winning just four of their 13 Premier League games so far and the knives are being sharpened for the Spaniard.
Next Premier League Manager To Leave Post Odds (Prices from Paddy Power)
- 10/11 – Rafa Benitez
- 7/2 – Ralph Hassenhuttl
- 6/1 – Brendan Rodgers
- 15/2 – Claudio Ranieri
- 14/1 – Marcelo Bielsa
Odds correct at 29/11/21
Ralph Hassenhuttl is an expert in riding the wave of expectancy at Southampton.
As soon as Saints suffer a poor run in form, the Austrian finds some magic and his P45 is shoved frantically back into the draw.
No one is really sure what to expect of Southampton this season but fans will be wanting more than 11 goals in 13 matches.
Hassenhuttl may run out of lives soon.
Never trust the owners at Watford Football Club.
Claudio Ranieri may well still be a fresh face at Vicarage Road, but by no means does that make his job safe.
Watford are getting embroiled in some humdingers in the Premier League, but are conceding far too many goals.
If they continue to slip, who is to say Ranieri won’t be the second Watford manager to be given his marching orders this season?
We didn’t expect the infamous ‘Bielsa burnout’ to happen this early in the season did we?
Leeds United are struggling this campaign, but they’ve been battling against the wind of injuries for a few months now.
It’s still expected to improve inside Elland Road, but Bielsa’s price is as short as it has been for a while at 14/1
