Premier League ManagersWe’re just eight matchdays into the 2021/22 Premier League season and we already have a handful of managers with high potential of being sacked by the winter break. Since we’re tall about betting here, you won’t be surprised to find out that most online sportsbooks have odds for the next ePL manager to be sacked.

Next Manager to Be Sacked Betting Odds

Here are the five likeliest candidates to get sacked by the end of the year:

Steve Bruce -1200
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer +1200
Claudi Ranieri +1600
Brendan Rodgers +2200
Nuno Espirito Santo +2500

All odds are courteous of the trusted sportsbook William Hill. Check out our William Hill review.

Steve Bruce at -1200

Steve Bruce has just managed his 1,000th Newcastle match. He lost 3:2 to Tottenham in what was a rather astonishing match. Newcastle took the lead less than two minutes into the match. But, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men managed to climb back up before the halftime with three goals.

With the club enjoying a massive financial takeover, the Magpies will invest in a better managerial option. Several names have been popping up in the media lately, suggesting it’s just a matter of time before Steve Bruce is shown the exit door.

However:
At -1200, I reckon it’s just not worth the hassle… especially considering Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United just lost 4:2 to eleventh-place Leicester.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at +1200

Yep, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the second name on the list! The Norwegian strategist just can’t get things rolling. He had a majestic transfer window in which he brought Varane, Sancho, and the GOAT himself, Cristiano Ronaldo.

And while Ronaldo’s impact did bring United into an early-season frenzy, they already struggled through more than a few cold showers. Manchester United needs a good shake; a wakeup call that will budge their talented players out of this trance… and I’m afraid that won’t happen while Ole is at the wheel.

But, is Sir Alex Ferguson’s favorite really going to be sacked ASAP? Well, it seems like a rash decision, to be fair. But, United is the world’s biggest club and one or two losses in the Premier League could be the end of the road for Norwegian strategist. Ronaldo’s late winner against Villarreal might’ve extended what could already be a done deal – Conte to Man Utd – you heard it here first!

Claudio Ranieri at +1600

Ranieri’s Watford are currently in 16th spot on the Premier League table. They are just four points away from the relegation zone which must’ve been raising red flags over at Gino Pozzo’s office. Claudio Ranieri has excellent pedigree; his magical year with Leicester still brings shivers down my spine.

But, there just hasn’t been that magical spark with Watford.

He’s not able to get the best out of his players, and I’m convinced he won’t survive winter as their manager. But, is he going to be the next ePL manager to be sacked? I don’t think so… though at +1600, it could be worth a shot!

Brendan Rodgers at +2200

Brendan Rodgers had been higher up on this list before Leicester’s 4:2 win over Manchester United last weekend.

Please Note:
Now, he’s at +2200 and he’s not likely to be the next ePL manager to be sacked this season. Although, Leicester will need a lot more than just one upset to get back to where they belong.

At the time of writing, they were sitting on the eleventh place with just as many points, just like Arsenal.

Nuno Espirito Santo at +2500

Last but not least, Nuno Espirito Santo. The Spurs’ manager is not loved by the fans, and the players haven’t been performing all too well under his leadership. Despite defeating Man City in the opener and suggesting a fantastic season, Santo’s Tottenham won four and lost three since then.

On the bright side
Spurs are now on a two-match winning streak, having dealt with Newcastle and Aston Villa recently. That said, Nuno might not be the best manager Spurs ever had, but he’s certainly not going to get sacked as long as Tottenham remain within the ePL top five. They’re fifth at the moment, meaning they need to take all three points off West Ham this weekend.

Surprisingly enough, Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta is not in the top five. The Spaniard had a terrible start to his 2021/22 Premier League campaign, but has come back with style in recent fixtures and regained board’s support. What are your thoughts on this topic?

Who do you think will be the next Premier League manager to be sacked?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems like the best value at +1200, though Steve Bruce is the likeliest one. Tell us more in the comments section below!
