Last year, ten Premier League managers were sacked mid-season (excluding caretakers and interim coaches). That number is way too high for English standards. In comparison, in 2020-21 there were only 4 managerial changes. The last time we had 10 changes within a season was back in 2018. Who will be the first Premier League manager to leave his post this year? Well, it is unlikely that this will be either Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola, as both managers’ odds are at 50/1. Tell us, in the comments, who you think the first coach to leave will be.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has been the Southampton boss for the past four years. He is loved by the fans, but last season’s poor results have him on thin ice. With 9/2 odds, he’s the most likely to leave his club early in the season. Leeds United’s Jesse Marsch is a close second, as the odds of him leaving are at 11/2. Both of them can be wagered on, and this bet can be paired perfectly with the best betting welcome bonuses found on online bookmakers.
Third on the list is Frank Lampard. The Everton boss was pretty close to being sacked last season, but he saved the day, mainly due to Richarlison’s heroics and Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goal against Crystal Palace. He was spared but we is still under the gun. Then you have a former Everton manager. Marco Silva led Fulham to an amazing Championship campaign and helped the team return to the Premier League, but still he is thought to be among the favorites to be sacked early.
There are some named featuring near the top of the list that you wouldn’t expect. Like Thomas Tuchel, Scott Parker, Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta.
Apart from Klopp and Guardiola, bookies think it would be highly unlikely to see Erik ten Hag leave United this early in his Premier League career, while David Moyes, Antonie Conte, Thomas Frank and Graham Potter are also thought to be wuite untouchable for now.
