Javi Gracia heads markets in next manager to leave post as Watford remain winless

Published

on

Four weeks into the new Premier League season and there’s already whispers of managers getting the sack. Harsh? Perhaps, but it’s no surprise. 

Watford’s Javi Gracia is 13/8 to be the first Premier League manager to be handed his P45.

FA Cup finalists last season, the Hornets have taken just one point from their opening four League games, remain the only side in England’s top flight yet to record a win and sit rock bottom.

After the international break they entertain Arsenal and travel to champions Manchester City in the space of six days. Will Gracia be given time to turn things around or are his days at Vicarage Road numbered? Only time will tell.

Few would have expected Mauricio Pochettino to be under pressure so early on in the season.

But he is. Tottenham’s start to the new campaign has been less than convincing. One win from four, defeat to Newcastle and draws against Man City and Arsenal sees Spurs sit seven points adrift of league leaders Liverpool.

The Argentinian, who guided Spurs to the Champions League final last season, is 5/1 to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked.

Ole remains at the wheel of Manchester United, for now anyway. Into his first full season as The Red Devil’s gaffer and he’s slowly going about rebuilding a United squad packed full of deadwood. Sanchez, Lukaku and Smalling have all been culled, while Darmian and Herrera have been found surplus to requirements. Credit where credit is due, he has been ruthless is getting rid of some big names, but it’s on the pitch where he’ll be judged.

Defeat at home to Crystal Palace was followed by a 1-1 draw at Southampton leaving the Reds seven points off top spot. The football had been decent, but nothing special and Solskjaer is 9/1 to be the first manager to leave his position.

It’s no surprise to see Steve Bruce among the favourites in the sack race. The Newcastle gaffer is 14/1 to be shown the door at St James Park. But a surprise victory over Tottenham and a draw at home to Watford has eased the pressure on the Magpies boss who is yet to win over the Toon faithful.Frank Lampard, Roy Hodgson and Dean Smith are all 16/1 to be the first manager to be sacked, Norwich’s Daniel Farke and Brighton’s Graham Potter are both 20/1 and Ralph Hasenhuttl is available at 25/1.
