Who will be the next Premier League manager to leave?

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 01 November 2017, 13:51

Three Premier League managers have already been sent to the guillotine this season, and with the international break rapidly approaching we could witness one or two more casualties in the upcoming weeks.

We take this opportunity to look at the top-5 contenders in the Premier League Sack Race.

Sean Dyche (Watford)

Odds: 6/4 (favourite)

Burnley boss Sean Dyche marked his five-year anniversary with the Clarets by leading the club to a 1-0 victory over Newcastle, which propelled his troops up to 7th  in the table, within three points of the top-4.

The Englishman is currently the third longest-serving manager in the Premier League, behind Arsene Wenger and Eddie Howe, but his loyalty could now be severly tested by the vacancy over at Everton.

Dyche's success at Burnley has caught the eye of the Toffees, and at the time of writing he’s the (6/4) joint-favourite for the post, alongside Sam Allardyce. Should the Merseyside club come calling Dyche would undoubtedly have a very tough decision to make...

Slaven Bilic (West Ham)

Odds: 3/1

Next up is Slaven Bilic who has been a ubiquitous presence in the top echelons of the market since it opened up at the start of the season.

The Croatian has come under immense pressure this campaign, none more so than last week when West Ham found themselves 2-0 down away to rivals Tottenham in the Carabao Cup. After what we assume was a half-time rollicking, the Hammers responded in stunning style, conjuring up a remarkable comeback in a memorable 3-2 win at Wembley.

West Ham then came within seconds of backing that result up with a rare league win, but leaked in a 97th minute equaliser to basement club Crystal Palace, meaning the pressure is back on Bilic ahead of Saturday’s clash with Liverpool.

Marco Silva (Watford)

Odds: 6/1

Marco Silva may be the third favourite to leave at 6/1, but I’d say ignore him in this market (famous last words...).

The only reason the Portuguese coach is up in the mix is because Everton were rumoured to be interested in snatching his services from Watford. However, he’s now drifted out to 20/1 in the next Toffees manager market - much to the relief of Watford fans.

Former Hull boss Silva has enjoyed a fine start to life at Watford, and should the Hornets continue to shine, then the club may have to swat away future offers for their main man.

Antonio Conte (Chelsea)

Odds: 12/1

Antonio Conte cut a frustrated figure during Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to Roma on Tuesday, a result which meant the Blues became the first English side to lose in this season’s Champions League group stages.

Rarely a day goes by without Conte’s future at Chelsea being mentioned, and he’ll be well are of the fate of former title winning gaffers (see tweet).

Bet Victor cut the Italian’s Sack Race odds from 20/1 to 12/1 ahead of a crunch clash with Jose Mourinho’s Man Utd on Sunday. In this fixture last season Conte humiliated his rival, overseeing a 4-0 hammering at the Bridge, but this time around he’s the boss feeling the heat, and another defeat could prove very costly indeed.

Tony Pulis (West Brom)

Odds: 12/1

The season started swimmingly for Tony Pulis to three consecutive league and cup wins, all to nil. However, since the end of August the Baggies have lost their Boing, failing to win any of their nine matches in all competitions, eight of which have come in the league.

The Midlands outfit have subsequently plummeted down the table to 15th, just two points above the relegation zone, and it doesn't get any easier with a tricky trip to Huddersfield up next, followed by back-to-back clashes with Chelsea and Tottenham…

Pulis has recovered from poor patches of form before, but should his side’s winning streak hit double figures, expect his odds to tumble.
