Scott Parker who set a blistering pace to win the 2022/23 Premier League sack race by getting the boot at Bournemouth after just four games and Thomas Tuchel was the next to go with Chelsea’s new ownership taking decisive action and laying down the law.

In turn they pinched Graham Potter from Brighton, making him the third manager to leave their post this season. So who’ll be number four?


Leicester’s 6-2 defeat at Spurs on Saturday night means the Foxes are howling at the door for the former Liverpool and Celtic gaffer who is quoted as saying he will ‘respect’ the owners’ decision as the Midlands’ side lie rooted to the foot of the division, with just one point after seven games.

And Paddy Power’s market have reacted accordingly.


Brendan Rodgers

The Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers started to come under real pressure last season as his Foxes underwhelmed domestically and in Europe, following the club’s FA Cup triumph. Another heavy defeat to Spurs last night means his sell-by-date could be up as the summer transfer window saw them go high on selling but low on buying players and they’re struggling badly now. Something needs to give quickly or Rodgers will pay the price.

Ralph Hasenhuttl

Yes, Ralph Hasenhuttl is still at Southampton and yes, Southampton are still in the Premier League. The Saints have just been middling along, only popping into the general consciousness when they take an absolute hammering. Will Ralph pay for the mediocrity or is it steady as she goes at St Mary’s?

David Moyes

It’s been a poor start to the season for the Hammers. In fact, it’s been a poor 2022. They’ve already lost more games in this calendar year than last with three months of the year to go. After a pretty abject performance against Frankie Lampard’s Everton, David Moyes has shot up this list.

Bruno Lage

Wolves can’t score goals. That could be the undoing of the Portuguese gaffer at Molineux, who have always looked relatively solid at the back, but don’t have that bite up top.

Just one win in their seven games this season has increased the pressure on Bruno Lage. If the trigger is pulled – every Portuguese manager should leave their on loud.

Steve Cooper

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper was given the transfer war chest to end all transfer war chests over the summer with over 20 players arriving. The hierarchy will be expecting a return on their humungous investment.

Steven Gerrard

Aston Villa’s Steven Gerrard has been facing some uncomfortable questions of late with his side starting to look a little stale after a good start under his stewardship. A recent mini-revival may have steadied the ship unless someone else becomes available that is.

Frank Lampard

Natural-born winner Frank Lampard just about dragged Everton to safety last season and it looks like he’s doing a decent job on the limited resources available to him. The club’s still a mess and surely no amount of one-man good cop, bad cop can turn that around.

Jesse Marsch

The jury was out on Leeds boss Jesse Marsch after he just about kept them up last season but Leeds have made a decent start to this campaign. The American boss is catching the eye of neutrals with his madcap antics on the sidelines and his knack of rubbing other bosses up the wrong way.

Marco Silva

Fulham manager Marco Silva did guide The Cottagers back into the Premier League at the first time of asking but keeping them there will be even tougher. However, they’ve made a great start and Aleksandar Mitrovic looks like he might finally be able to hack it in the top flight. A 3-2 win at Forest on Friday night leaves them sitting pretty in the upper tier of the table. Who knew?
