A football manager’s job always has speculation surrounding it. This is epically true for the Premier League where managers are sacked after a few dismal games. Only a few managers (like Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger) manage to stay at a club for decades together at the helm of power.
So far, three managers have already been sacked in the current season of the Premier League.
The first was Frank De Boer at Crystal Palace after 4 games in charge. Palace failed to score a goal or register a single point till then. Currently, Palace has 3 points from one win after 9 games.
The next to follow was Craig Shakespeare at Leicester on the 17th of October. Leicester had three points from three draws and was languishing at the bottom of the table.
Finally, the most recent managerial casualty was Ronald Koeman, the ex-Everton manager on the 23rd of October. After splashing on big summer signings, Everton was able to amass only 8 points after 9 games.
Although nothing is ever guaranteed in the Premier League, here is a list of the most likely candidates to get the boot in the current season.
The West Ham United gaffer could be the next manager to be shown the door after a slow start to the season. Having signed key players like Auronotivic and Hernandez, West Ham still lie just outside the drop zone with 8 points from 9 games. Odds on getting sacked are 2/1.
Watford is currently 6th in the table, a surprise position for them. Although the odds seem pretty good that Silva may be the next manager out, the possibility of that happening seems pretty slim. Odds on getting sacked are 3/1.
Another potential manager who might be without a job before the transfer market. Stoke have 8 points from 9 games as well. Odds on getting sacked are 8/1.
Conte has always been in the hot seat ever since Chelsea picked up the title. Don’t expect him to get sacked any time soon. At Least not before the January transfer window. Odds on getting sacked are 14/1.
