Next Manager To Get Sacked Odds

The best bookies have been busy revising their Premier League Sack Race betting market after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the sixth manager to lose his job in the Premier League this season.

It could be that Rafael Benitez is the seventh managerial casualty this season. The Spaniard saw his Everton team comfortably beaten at home to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby and the money has now come for him in this betting market.

Rafael Benitez Skating on Thin Ice

Rafael Benitez's Everton side have a modest return of 15 points from 14 games played this season. The Spaniard enjoyed a strong start to the season, although the Toffees have taken just two points from their past eight matches and it's plausible that they'll get sucked into a relegation battle this term. A 4-1 derby defeat to Liverpool has not helped his cause.

Injuries have clearly played a part in the team's downturn in form, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin leaving the Merseyside team short of firepower. They're also been robbed of Abdoulaye Doucoure in the midfield engine room until recently, although it's clear that the supporters will turn on the manager if the winless run continues.

Following the departure of Everton's director of football Marcel Brands, there's no current appetite to dismiss Benitez considering Everton are six points clear of the drop zone, although the situation could well change quickly if the teams below start to close the gap.

Ralph Hasenhuttl Could Leave Southampton This Season

Southampton had a fairly up and down 2020/21 season in the Premier League and the pressure could be on Ralph Hasenhuttl for the current campaign, with the Austrian seeing Jannik Vestergaard joining Leicester after the previous departure of Danny Ings to Villa.

Hasenhuttl was linked to the Tottenham manager vacancy before the job was given to Nuno Espirito Santo and it's clear that the Saints boss is ambitious and potentially looking beyond St Mary's, with the bookies making this manager among their favourites on the Premier League Sack Race.

While the Southampton owners remain loyal to their manager for the beginning of the season, it's plausible that there could be a parting of the ways if the South Coast side don't collect enough points in the next few weeks.

Ranieri Keeping Watford Afloat for Now

Watford are back in the Premier League and they have already sacked a manager this season. Last time they were in the top flight, three managers were fired and Claudio Ranieri might not get the full season if he doesn't bring about positive results.

The Italian is someone who has won a top flight title with Leicester City although he has since struggled at Fulham among other clubs. Beating Manchester United was seen as a starting point, but they have reverted back to their disappointing selves after that.

This remains a difficult challenge for the Italian at Vicarage Road where 17th would be regarded as a positive outcome and we wouldn't be surprised to see Ranieri struggle to last the season should results not go his way.

We know that Watford FC owner Gino Pozzo is quick to change things if they're not going well at the club and the Hornets have a difficult run of games on the horizon which means that Ranieri could be under pressure quickly, especially if the team drop into the bottom three.

Rodgers Losing His Way at Leicester

Since the start of the season, Brendan Rodgers has been the subject of plenty of speculation. He was linked with the Arsenal job as Mikel Arteta's future became uncertain after three straight wins to start the season. Then, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer struggles continued at Manchester United, Rodgers looked to be a candidate to replace the Norwegian.

Leicester have struggled to find consistency this season and perhaps one of the reasons for that is the speculation linking their manager with jobs elsewhere. Rodgers has played down the links, but if he is offered a bigger job, it might be too good an offer to turn down if he feels he has done all he can at Leicester.

Although Rodgers publicly maintains that he's committed to the cause at the King Power Stadium, the opportunity to manage a bigger club doesn't come along very often and it might be that this is his final season at the Midlands club.

Could Bielsa Be The Next Manager to Leave?

Marcelo Bielsa continues to be a popular figure at Elland Road and the Argentine has so much credit in the bank after steering Leeds into the Premier League before keeping the Whites in the top flight. However, the Yorkshire side are only averaging just over a point per game right now.

With other clubs currently changing their manager after poor starts, it naturally follows that Bielsa is among the sack race betting favourites and the coach could quite as easily walk away from the club rather than being dismissed by the Leeds board.

Will This Be Sean Dyche's Final Season at Turf Moor?

Sean Dyche was typically linked to vacant managerial positions this summer and he was one of the betting favourites to get the Crystal Palace manager's position, although the Burnley manager remains in charge of the Clarets and he will now look to keep the Lancashire club afloat once more.

Dyche has been in charge at Turf Moor since 2012 and could well see his ten-year anniversary at Burnley, although it's getting increasingly difficult to stay afloat for a team who are renowned for having one of the smallest budgets in the Premier League and one suspects that a relegation dogfight could see the manager walking away.

The Clarets currently sit in the relegation zone although the mood is optimistic after the team collected five points from their past three matches and Dyche might yet continue in charge for some time yet.

Arteta Now Has Breathing Space at Arsenal

Mikel Arteta has travelled through choppy waters at the Emirates Stadium although there's a decent chance that his Gunners side could end up in fourth place this season and they're currently moving in the right direction. The Spaniard has laid some foundations with some young players in key positions and there are points being landed.

Emil Smith Rowe is currently proving to be a consistent match winner in the central attacking midfield position, with Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale also shining and Arteta is now trading at his biggest price on the Sack Race market for a long time.

Arsenal have been dropping down the pecking order since the later Arsene Wenger years, with Unai Emery struggling to arrest a slump although the Gunners have rallied from losing their opening three matches and the future looks brighter. Arteta continues to have the backing of owner Stan Kroenke.


Vieira Drifting on Premier League Sack Race Market

Patrick Vieira was something of a left field choice at Selhurst Park considering that the Frenchman only has a modest amount of managerial experience. However, the Crystal Palace board decided he was the best option to replace Roy Hodgson who did such a solid job with the London club.

Vieira was understandably among the Sack Race betting favourites before the season began and there was just one point registered from the first two matches. However, the Eagles have since secured a further four points from games against West Ham and Tottenham, implying that it could be a bright campaign to come.

It could be that Palace challenge for a place in the top half of the Premier League table this season, with Connor Gallagher and Odsonne Edouard joining Wilfried Zaha as players with the sort of attacking flair to ensure that Vieira’s residency at Selhurst Park lasts for some time yet.
