Next Premier League Manager To Leave Odds: Will it be Claude Puel or Marco Silva?

For a long time it seemed inevitable that Claude Puel would be the next Premier League manager to lose their job, with the Leicester City boss under increasing pressure at the King Power Stadium.

That was until Everton’s form completely nosedived, leaving Marco Silva also under intense scrutiny at his football club and, if outside noise is to be believed, under consideration to be replaced at Goodison Park already.

Leicester and Everton both had hopes of finishing 7th heading into the new Premier League season but that now looks relatively unlikely for both, with Wolves looking most likely to claim that spot come the end of the campaign.

Recent form

Everton host Manchester City at Goodison Park on Wednesday night looking to avoid a fifth home defeat at home in the Premier League, with the team already losing losing 10 of their 25 games in total in the league. It’s been a hugely difficult period for Silva, who must be starting to grow concerned by the jeers of the crowd that are creeping back in at Goodison once again.

As for Leicester, they have have shown some fight in their last two outings, battling to earn a 1-1 draw at Anfield thanks to Harry Maguire’s effort in the second half and were desperately unlucky not to take a point against Manchester United at the weekend.

Those performances and the effort displayed in both certainly don’t give the impression that the Leicester squad are set to cave in under Puel, who has overseen one of the most difficult spells in the club’s history following the helicopter crash earlier in the season. One thing that did upset fans was the substitution of James Maddison at the weekend, who has taken off on the hour mark as the team continued to chase an equaliser.

It also is impossible to ignore the fact that Leicester have lost four of their last five matches in all competitions and have won just three of their last 13 games. It’s worth noting that those victories came against Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton.

Everton’s season has somewhat fallen apart ever since their defeat to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby, with that result sparking a run of only four victories in 14 matches for Silva and a real reduction in their performance levels. Wins in that time have come against Burnley, Lincoln, Bournemouth and Huddersfield and the team have conceded 12 goals in their last five home games.

Weighing up the odds

It seems the bookmakers can’t quite make their minds up regarding who will be the next manager to leave their club, with differing odds depending on who you go to.

At the time of writing, BetVictor have placed Silva as the favourite to be the next manager gone at 2/1, coming in from 6/1 since Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat against Wolves. They have Puel as second-favourite at 3/1 at present.

Elsewhere, the majority of other bookmakers offering odds on the market have Puel remaining as the favourite to go, though his odds have risen since Silva’s recent plight with Everton.

SkyBet (6/5), Unibet (6/5), Betfair (6/4) and Paddy Power (6/4) are all still backing Puel to be the next manager to go, having Silva as the second-favourite with odds ranging between 2/1 to 5/2.

Whilst it remains unclear which of the two managers will be next to go, it seems pretty obvious that it will be one of the pair that are next to lose their job.
