Who will be the first Premier League manager to get the boot?

Loyalty is a rarity in modern-day football, and the number of managers that get shown the door seems to be rising year upon year. The 2018/2019 season saw 59 managers leave/ be removed from their jobs across England’s top 4 leagues, which was actually a decrease on the previous season by 8.

This summer saw three new Premier League managers hired; Steve Bruce, Graham Potter and Frank Lampard, who all – bar Potter, currently find themselves in the top 4 favourites to be the first manager to leave.

Graham Potter to leave Odds

The day before the Premier League season began Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter was the 2nd favourite manager to be relinquished of his duties. Fast forward 24 hours and an empathetic 3-0 victory over a strong Watford outfit, Potter’s odds drifted from 8/1 to 18/1, meaning he went from 2nd favourite to be sacked all the way to 14th. Prior to the Watford game, it felt like no punter or bookie alike were giving the Seagulls a prayer, their odds prior to kick-off were 18/5 to win within 90 minutes – the highest price for a team to win from all 10 PL fixtures in the opening week. Next up for Brighton is West Ham at home, and Potter & his men will be looking to build on their win and ensure that the Hammers aren’t able to bounce back from their 5-0 mauling off Pep’s Manchester City.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær to leave odds

Prior to the first whistle being blown in the Premier League, Manchester United legend Solskjær was the bookies favourite to be the first PL manager to be shown the door, at odds of just 6/1. There’s no doubt Man Utd will play much better than they did against Lampard’s new-look Chelsea side and will come away with zero points, but the 4-0 victory on the opening day for the red half of Manchester did Ole’s odds wonders and silenced many of the critics. The man once referred to as ‘The Baby Faced Assassin’ now finds himself the 5th favourite to leave at odds 10/1. Next up for United is Wolves (A) on Friday, a potential banana skin.

Roy Hodgson to leave odds

The ex-England manager now finds himself the bookies favourite to leave after his odds went from 10/1 to 7/2 after a bore 0-0 draw at home to Everton. It’s no doubt that the Toffees will have caused the London club major headaches over the summer due to their pursuit of Palace’s talisman Wilfried Zaha, but luckily for Hodgson and The Eagles the offer from Everton was below the asking price for the Ivory Coast International and it looks like he will be a Palace player for at least another 4-and-a-half months – a huge boost for Roy and their chances of breaking into the top 10, a feat they haven’t achieved since the 14-15 season. Next up for Crystal Palace is newly promoted Sheffield United on Sunday.
