Sarri To Be Sacked?
We’re getting towards the end of the 2018/19 Premier League season and the bookies don’t expect Maurizio Sarri to last at Stamford Bridge until Chelsea’s final game of the campaign.
The Italian is currently trading at even money on BetVictor’s Next Manager to Leave the Post market, although some take a dimmer view with a 4/6 quote about Sarri.
It’s certainly been a tricky first season at Stamford Bridge for Sarri and much could hinge on whether Chelsea qualify for next season’s Champions League, with the Blues potentially doing this by winning the Europa League rather than finishing in the top four of the Premier League.
Will a manager be sacked before the end of the season?
The bookies list 12/5 that no manager leaves between now and the end of the Premier League season, with the campaign having already claimed the likes of Jose Mourinho, Mark Hughes, Claude Puel and Claudio Ranieri.
This price seems pretty decent considering that Sarri might at least be expected to battle it out to the bitter end at Chelsea, with the Kepa incident having been promptly dealt with and it appears the players are still motivated under their current manager.
Everton have certainly struggled more than expected under Marco Silva and the Portuguese is trading at single-figure odds on the Premier League Sack Race market, even if the club owners have indicated that their manager will be given time at Goodison Park.

BetVictor have odds of 6/1 about Silva on their Next Manager to Leave betting market, although others are happy to lay 5/1 and don’t anticipate that Silva will be given his marching orders despite a 3-2 defeat at Newcastle where Everton took a 2-0 lead only to fritter this away.
Neil Warnock is the only other manager whose position is regarded as perilous although it would seem unlikely that he’ll part company with Cardiff City unless the Bluebirds are confirmed as relegated within the next few games.
A recent win over West Ham has certainly kept hopes alive for Warnock and the Welsh club, with BetVictor offering 10/1 about the former Sheffield United manager leaving the capital of Wales before the current season is over.
Rafael Benitez has regularly been a Sack Race betting market favourite considering his frustration with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley, although the Spaniard has now drifted to 25/1 in the betting with BetVictor and would appear unlikely to go anywhere given the upbeat mood at St James’ Park right now.
Chris Hughton is also trading at a similar price although the Brighton manager engineered a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace and his Seagulls team could yet win the FA Cup this season which would cement his legendary status at the club.
