It's simply a case of sink or swim for managers in the Premier League.
Over the past few seasons, we have seen a certain tendency from boards and officials to become rather impatient with the man in the hot seat, leading onto an influx of managerial dismissals. We have already seen nine changes in management in the league this season, with such a stat showing that you can never become to comfortable in your position.
In the most recent next Premier League manager to leave odds, we have seen one man's price fall dramatically.
Solskjaer backed in to be sacked
It's gotten quite toxic at Old Trafford since Christmas, with the misery not relating to your normal case of the January blues. Since the 22nd of December, Manchester United have suffered five defeats, with four of these coming in the league. Fans have quickly become impatient with the lack of progress of the side, with the latest injury to top-scorer Marcus Rashford not helping the Norwegian's situation.
Solskjaer is by no means a stranger to this betting market, with his price yo-yoing all season long. His ever-changing odds relate to his side's inconsistent results, with there being many cases where it's looked like a dead end for the former club player. He was as short as 3/2 at the start of the year, before then drifting back out to 4/1. Solskjaer's price have now significantly dropped, following the side's latest run of form.
Before the away defeat to Watford, the Norwegian was 10/1 with SkyBet to be the next PL manager to leave, with the 2-0 loss seeing his odds drop to 4/1. After a run of three games without a win, including losses to Arsenal and Manchester City, Solskjaer was backed in again to 9/4. United's defeat at Anfield didn't affect the market too much, but the humiliating loss to Burnley at home has.
Solskjaer is now the market favourite at 1/1, with the performance looking anything but inspiring. The Red Devils have looked bereft of any creativity or confidence on the field, with a busy schedule of fixtures now coming their way. They face City, Wolves and Chelsea over the next few weeks - is it officially make or break for the club legend?
Eddie Howe's price on the drift
Another man who has come under severe scrutiny over the past couple of months has been Eddie Howe. The Cherries' embarked upon a horrendous run of form in the league, losing ten of their twelve games from November 9th to January 18th. It's fair to say that any other manager in the league would have been dismissed following such results, but Bournemouth have stuck by their man.
Their 3-1 over Brighton last Tuesday was badly needed, as its injected a bit of much needed life back into the Vitality Stadium. It was the first time that Howe's side had scored three in a league game since September, with Callum Wilson finally getting back on the score-sheet. During their barren run, the English manager's price went as low as 8/13 on the 19th of January, making him the big favourite by some distance.
However, things change very quickly in football and following Solskjaer's run and Bournemouth's victory, Howe is now 4/1 to be the next PL manager to leave. The 42-year-old has taken the club from League One up to the promise-land, with the Cherries clearly favouring the route of sticking by their man, as opposed to the gamble of brining in a new figure.
No manager to leave - 8/1
We often get so caught up into the thought of manager's leaving, we often tend to overlook the possibility of nobody actually being dismissed. SkyBet are offering a price of no manager to leave in the PL for the remainder of the season at 8/1, with this being the lowest price on this selection all season long. This price drop evidently comes from the fact that there is only four months left of the campaign. Will all the current managers survive?
According to Sky, Solskjaer will maintain the backing of United's board, so we aren't expecting any rash decisions from Ed Woodward just yet. If Howe is deemed 'unsackable', that clears the two market favourites out at present.
Dean Smith and Daniel Farke are both next in line at 8/1, which is expected considering that both teams are in a relegation scrap. This is often the case for managers down at the bottom end of the table, but there has been no real noise surrounding the futures of either the Aston Villa or Norwich coach.
Going beyond the 8/1 mark and the prices start to escalate. Sean Dyche is 20/1 and Graham Potter is 25/1, but either manger to leave next would be a massive shock. It is, of course, always hard to predict what sort of run teams will go on, but with just four months left, this 8/1 price could be one big value.
