This season, eight coaches have left their positions in the English Premier League, but are there more changes on the way on any coach?
In an era dominated by demands for immediate impact and immediate results, many Premier League clubs have adopted a revolving door policy when it comes to filling prominent managerial roles.
The 2021-22 season has seen eight coaches leave their positions, including Steve Bruce, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Nuno Espirito Santo, and Rafa Benitez, while Xisco Munoz and Claudio Ranieri have both been in and out of Watford.
Will there be any more changes before the season ends, and who is the most likely Premier League Coach to be fired?
Who do you think will be the next Premier League manager to leave?
It may come as a surprise to learn that Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers currently leads the betting market for the next Premier League manager to leave at 3/1. (4.0).
The Foxes appointed the Northern Irishman in February 2019, with the former Swansea and Liverpool manager returning to English top-flight coaching after a productive stint at Celtic.
He has occasionally pushed Leicester into top-four contention while also guiding them on Europa League adventures.
The FA Cup was won in 2021, along with the Community Shield, but that piece of silverware has slipped through a collective grasp this season, and uncomfortable questions are being asked at the King Power Stadium following a run of just three wins in the club’s last 11 games in all competitions.
Who are the potential replacements for the next Premier League coach?
Burnley have been in the Premier League since 2016, with two top-half finishes in the last five seasons, but they are currently mired in another relegation battle.
Sean Dyche, who has been in charge at Turf Moor since 2012, is a 5/1 (6.0) shot to lose his job with the Clarets sitting at the bottom of the Premier League table, four points from safety but with games in hand on everyone above them.
No more managerial departures before the end of the current season is available at 6/1 (7.0), while Dean Smith is 9/1 (10.0) to last only a few months at Norwich as they seek to avoid another hurried return to the Championship.
Antonio Conte is available for the same fee, and questions have been raised about how long the fiery Italian will stay at Tottenham if he begins to question the board’s ambition – as he did at former club Inter.
Roy Hodgson was only appointed as Watford’s new manager on January 25, but the 74-year-old is 10/1 (11.0) to be the club’s next manager, with Ralf Rangnick – who is set to join Manchester United as a consultant this summer – joining the ex-England manager at 10s.
Marcelo Bielsa is also priced at 10/1 (11.0), but given everything he has accomplished in restoring Leeds to prominence – and the fact that he only works on 12-month contracts – it would be surprising to see him given the elbow at Elland Road.
Eddie Howe is 12/1 (13.0) to leave Newcastle at the end of the season, with ambitious owners demanding more than a scrap for survival from the Magpies despite the January transfer window proving more difficult than many had predicted.
Who are the outsiders to replace the next Premier League manager?
Thomas Tuchel is only 16/1 (17.0) to leave Chelsea, but winning the Champions League in 2021 should buy the German some time if things start to fall apart at Stamford Bridge.
There have been reports that Ralph Hasenhuttl, 54, will retire when his Southampton contract expires in 2024, and he is 20/1 (21.0) to be the next manager to leave.
Mikel Arteta has helped Arsenal return to Champions League contention this season, but not everyone is convinced by his efforts at Emirates Stadium, and the Spaniard is 25/1 (26.0) to be fired.
West Ham manager David Moyes, at 66/1 (67.0), and Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard, at 80/1, are among the serious outsiders to be left out of work at some point in the near future (81.0).
Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, who is closing in on another Premier League title, and Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool are both priced at 100/1 (101.0) to be the next manager to leave.
