With a new Premier League season looming into view, Paddy’s trusty traders have been hard at work figuring out who’s going to win the prestigious Sack Race. West Brom’s Slaven Bilic was last season’s champion, so will it be another of the promoted clubs who pull the trigger first?

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

Norwich, Watford and Brentford are stepping up to the big time but do they have the right man in charge to keep them up? Or is it going to be the constantly under pressure Steve Bruce getting the boot at Newcastle? Let’s take a look at the runners and riders…

Mikel Arteta

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta already feels like a dead man walking. The Spaniard has had a poor start to this campaign and shot into favouritism after just one game. Arsenal’s squad looks  a mess but at least Pep Guardiola’s former understudy’s hair never looks out of place. Will that keep him in a job, though?

Ralph Hasenhuttl

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has a real job on his hands this season. Losing Danny Ings looks to be a big blow and he’ll be relying heavily on players who are untried at the top table. Still, if you can take two 9-0s and keep getting a regular pay check, what does a guy have to do to get sacked?

Xisco

Thong fanatic and Watford manager Xisco will know that the clock is already ticking on his tenure at Vicarage Road. Watford love to sack their manager and it’s just lucky that this one has his singing career to fall back on. Oh that guy’s called Sisqo is he? Never mind.

Patrick Vieira

New Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira looks to have an almighty job on his hands. Not only does he have to try and match former boss Roy Hodgson’s sartorial elegance on the side lines but he’s scrambling around trying to piece together a squad ahead of the new season. He’ll do well to do well.

Steve Bruce

Good old Steve Bruce. Brucey is still hanging around up at Newcastle like your slightly bumbling uncle who can’t do enough for you. You feel bad but in all honestly he’s more of a hinderance than a help. Still, Mike Ashley seems to like having him around.

Bruno Lage

Appointing Bruno Lage was a very Wolves move from Wolves. Replacing the popular Nuno Espirito Santo will be no easy task, but he’s got the right agent at least.

Graham Potter

Graham Potter has, from the outside at least, done a good job at Brighton. However, a woeful home record and scandalous xG numbers have started to gnaw away at some of the goodwill from the Seagulls faithful.
