The Best Bet On The Next Premier League Manager Getting Sacked

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.  

The 2017-18 Season

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.

Odds On The Next Manager To Get Sacked

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.

  • Slaven Bilic

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.

  • Marco Silva

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.

  • Mark Hughes

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.

  • Antonio Conte

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.
