Next Premier League Manager to be Sacked Race: Which Premier League managers are fighting to keep their jobs?
Although the likes of Erik ten Hag and Roberto De Zerbi might have continued to impress since arriving in the Premier League, some top-flight managers find themselves under increasing scrutiny.
As we just inch past the halfway point of this season’s campaign, clubs from up and down the country are reportedly weighing up a potential change in their dugouts.
However, while Chelsea boss Graham Potter might find himself under growing pressure at Stamford Bridge, there are three other bosses who appear to be leading the sack race in 2023.
On a list that is undoubtedly highlighted by one of the Premier League’s greatest-ever managers, we have taken an in-depth look at who have been installed as the leading contenders to be given the boot.
Next Premier League Manager to be Sacked Odds
- 4/5 Nathan Jones (Southampton)
- 9/2 Pep Guardiola (Man City)
- 8/1 Gary O’Neil (Bournemouth)
- 14/1 Graham Potter (Chelsea)
- 14/1 Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool)
- 16/1 David Moyes (West Ham)
- 33/1 Brendan Rodgers (Leicester)
- 50/1 Patrick Vieria (Crystal Palace)
Nathan Jones – Southampton
While Southampton might have only selected Nathan Jones as the man to replace Ralph Hasenhuttl back in November, the former Luton boss is already facing a huge amount of pressure at St. Mary’s.
Although the Premier League strugglers might have claimed a stunning EFL Cup upset as they snatched a 2-0 victory against Manchester City on January 11th, it appears that was just a minor boost for the Saints.
Crashing back down to earth after opening 2023 with a much-needed flurry, Jones’ side find themselves sat rock-bottom of the Premier League table and tipped as the leading relegation pick this season.
Despite extending on their FA Cup adventure on January 28th as they picked up a 2-1 win against Championship strugglers Blackpool, Southampton have lost eight of their previous nine Premier League appearances.
With that nightmare run of form stemming all the way back to a 1-1 draw against Arsenal on October 23rd, there has been growing speculation that Jones has already fallen out with a string of first-team stars.
Shockingly leaving both Mislav Orsic and Duje Caleta-Car out of his matchday squad for their 3-0 drumming against Brentford, Jones is certainly a manager under real pressure.
Nathan Jones to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post – Best Odds: 4/5 with Bet Victor’s sign-up offer.
Gary O’Neil – Bournemouth
Although Bournemouth might have found an immediate boost when they appointed Gary O’Neil on a temporary basis last year, the Cherries have failed to keep up that momentum since bringing the 39-year-old in on a full-time deal.
With many fans around the Vitality stating that they would have preferred someone who had genuine Premier League experience under their belt, the south coast outfit do appear to be paying the price.
Showing a string of issues since returning from the World Cup’s winter break, Bournemouth are battling it out in the bottom-three and they do appear in pole position to be hit with an immediate Championship return in 2023.
While Bournemouth’s new American ownership certainly splashed the cash during the January transfer window, there remain plenty of questions as to whether O’Neil is the man to take this squad forward.
With a change of ownership often historically followed by a change in the dugout, O’Neil looks to be in a race against time in order to save his job at the Vitality.
Suffering a remarkable FA Cup exit at the hands of Championship high-flyers Burnley on January 7th, Bournemouth and O’Neil are yet to muster a single domestic victory since returning from the World Cup interval.
Gary O’Neil to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post – Best Odds: 8/1 with Bet Victor.
Pep Guardiola – Manchester City
While Pep Guardiola might have led Manchester City to the Premier League title in four of the last five seasons, it appears there could be some cracks forming at the Etihad.
With the footballing world left stunned on February 6th as it was announced that the English giants have been charged with more than 100 breaches of financial rules following a four-year investigation, City faces what could be a growing crisis.
With the former Barcelona boss stating publically last year that he would be willing to leave his post if he was lied to about their financial affairs, Guardiola could be inching towards the Etihad exit sooner rather than later.
However, while it could be City’s financial issues that might force Guardiola out of the club, it is fair to say that the reigning Premier League champions have struggled with their consistency this season.
Facing an almighty title scrap with Arsenal and opening February sitting five points adrift of the Gunners, Man City have also won just a trio of their previous six domestic appearances across all competitions.
While Guardiola might not have brought a maiden Champions League crown to the Etihad during his tenure, many would be left shocked to see the 52-year-old leave England’s elite.
Pep Guardiola to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post – Best Odds: 9/2 with William Hill’s sign-up offer.
