Almost two months have passed since the beginning of the new Premier League season. Which means we could already witness some weaker performances. Managers of the teams at the bottom of the league are in danger. Just like Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. Bet on the next PL manager to be sacked, we show you the main candidates.
The English Premier League is one of the toughest leagues of the world, with top level clubs, players and managers taking part in it. Adopting to its high level can be extremely difficult for promoted teams. As we can see it now in the performances of Fulham and West Bromwich Albion. Other teams have been struggling for a few years now, like Burnley. While some big teams haven’t found their form yet. Like Manchester United who are only in the 15th place at the moment. Surely the managers of these clubs are not responsible for all the problems, but they can be easily sacked soon without big progress at their teams.
Bet on the next PL manager to be sacked with Slaven Bilic leading the list
Online sportsbooks in the UK predict that Slaven Bilic, the manager of West Bromwich Albion will be sacked first in the Premier League. His team is in the 18th place, with only 3 points after 7 games. And even though they achieved a 3-3 draw against Chelsea they suffered easy defeats from Southampton and Fulham. West Brom won their last match 11 games ago, against Derby County in the Championship. The Croatian took over the team last summer. He managed to lead them back to the Premier League in his first season. But it might not be enough to keep his job for any longer unless The Baggies start to get better results. His odds to leave first is 2.50.
Another favorite to go soon is Scott Parker, the manager of the other promoted side, Fulham. He has the odds of 6.00 to be sacked first in the PL. His team is not doing too good either, they are in 17th place with 4 points. Fulham have just beaten West Brom with a confident play, but will face tougher opponents in the next few weeks. Parker took over Fulham last February as a caretaker manager but he got permanent contract in May. The team was relegated at the end of 2019, but the club’s former player led them back to the Premier League just after one season. The club owners are still behind him but Parker will need other good results to secure his place.
Solksjaer might be in trouble
If you want to bet on the next PL manager to be sacked, you should consider Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. Online gambling sites in the UK offer the odds of 4.00 for his early leave. United are still struggling this season, and got only 7 points out of 6 games. Surely their most embarrassing result was the 6-1 defeat against Tottenham. But the team also lost against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. They were the losing side last weekend as well, when Arsenal beat them 1-0 at Old Trafford. The Red Devils are performing better in the Champions League after winning both their games so far, but it might not be enough to save Solksjaer’s position. United will face Everton in their next game, if they lose again, it might be over for the Norwegian.
